I was thinking about the illustrative style to use when producing the images of my two jokers..... i remebered ben saying to consider using blocks of colour and geometric shapes, as is often used in the work of more contemporary illustrators. I noticed this pattern of owls on a dress which belongs to my sister, (which i photogaphed,) and thought it was particulaly interesting.

The body of the owl has been simplified into a singular block of colour, with a pattern added over the top to suggest feathers. The eyes are then depicted in two large staring circles with smaller circles inside to show pupils . I could certainly use a style like this to illustrate the jormungandr and quetzalcoatl.
