Styling Steven

The Steven and Fossil illustration is actually going to be two illustrations. Below you can see the styles that I pulled together featuring all Fossil products except for the iconic Steven fedora.

I have begun this third illustration with a bit of sketching. Steven has a unique look that deserves special attention. What's different about the Fossil/Steven combo is that there will be two illustrations. Special consideration must be given to the composition of each so that they work in composition together.

To focus more on the watches I needed to pull the figure closer in view. Steven's feet are going to be missing in each of the illustrations. This serves the dual purpose of also not having to draw feet, which are always the worst.
