Commissioned | Professional

How were your illustrations used? :
Magazine or newspaper cover illustration, Magazine or newspaper inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
I was asked to create a cover illustration of a soccer ball made of jewels with added blood to illustrate the main feature, also a pair of soccer boots encrusted with jewels with blood on them. Once my sketched idea was signed off I created the illustrations in Cinema 4D. Also producing an animation to be used on Apple News.
