Illustration Series: Nature Illustration

We collected a series of projects from illustrators around the globe and put them together as a way of showing how illustrations can enhance the creative process and help brands build a much more original identity.

This is our fourth series from our illustration series hosted on Mindsparkle Mag featuring the latest illustration trends, including 3D illustrations, UX illustrations, collage, and much more.
For this selection, we wanted to showcase nature in illustration: here we found that many illustrations use a range of varied techniques, achieving very different results. While some projects stick to digital tools and 3d or motion skills, others achieve the same richness by using more traditional materials, such as oil or acrylic painting combined with drawing. In any case, it is amazing to see how each illustrator gives their piece an original essence and they all manage to communicate their own interpretation of nature.

As seen in these projects, nature seems to be observed by different eyes according to each artist. Colors change, techniques and textures vary, depicting an enormous range of sensations to those who see the works. What they all have in common, however, is the richness of the landscapes and the organic shapes that nature itself carries, making it pleasant to watch and probably a way of being transported though the screen.
