Chrysanthemum – vector illustration
I had a photo reference which showed lots of chrysanthemums, and I decided to create a stylized piece with inkscape. Up to that point I hadn’t much experience with gradients in Inkscape, but applying gradients one petal a time taught me a lot about it.
The final step was to export it as bitmap which created a png file and combine the flower with the appropriate background in photoshop. I finally chose the colour black because I wanted the flower to pop out.
