Peacock by Richard de Ruijter

In August 2011 i was approached by Paulo Prietto.
The three times world champion in skimboarding asked me to design the artwork for his 2012 pro model. As he is one of my rolemodels in the skimboarding sport, and a really nice guy i was super excited to do this. I started out an illustration on real size, (it was about 20 sheets of A4 paper to draw the feathers alone. Then i scanned in all the papers and stitched them together in photoshop to make a huge and super-detailed drawing. It took quite some time but when i was finally there the result was very satisfying. Me and Paulo sat down to discuss the final adjustments in color and i finished the artwork in time for his trip to taiwan.
