The Basic Principles of Illustration Style
The presence of lines
Illustrations should contain thin lines that are not too bold, but also not too nuanced; they should also convey understatement, lightness and dynamism.
New classic
Style "new" classic re-read with a modern look. The task is to convey a combination of new and old, which has been used in design for more than one century.
Color palette
Do not use bright, open colors, add a little complex tone, however, to make it look fresh and stylish.
Availability of textures
The use of large graphic textures on backgrounds, in parts of the illustration. The cage is like a reference to school.
