A Study on the Tree Cone Number 1
January 5th 2018
I am in the process of writing and illustrating a children's book which includes a pine cone as the primary character. I am doing a small study on the illustration of tree cones while attempting to reach a finalized visual for my particular pine cone character. Here is my first official cone illustration in the study. We shall see how closely my final idea will match this initial design. At this point, it looks like my tree cone resembles a feather more than a cone, but that actually may fit the storyline well. I may decide to subtly keep the feather visual in the end.
