Hand drawing vs. digital vs. 3d modelling

The design of my Victorian-inspired plate is a combination of hand drawing and digital painting applied on a 3D- modelled plate. Below is a breakdown of the creative process, from start to finish.

The flower pattern is drawn by hand.


The drawing is then scanned and digitally traced and painted.

Fine and dandy
