Funkrush Final by lee25 Funkrush Final by lee25
Finnished vector from the previous sketches, some of you preffer the actual sketches but it had to be worked up in vector for different applications of the illustration.
I started this with a few sketches then scanned them in and used them as a refference in adobe illustrator. All the flourishes have been researched and redrawn in illustrator, so no brushes (not that theres anything wrong with that, I just like to have more control).
This is the longest i've worked on this sort of thing, mainly because it was a commision from wirestyle for funkrush.com



Some of you have mentioned that this kind of illustration is similar to what si scott does, I've never been dishonest about this as I mentioned him the first time I submitted something in this style. Having said that I am keen to develop away from it.

beautiful!
yes, it does resemble elements of si scott's work. But you have to derive inspiration from somewhere, like everyone. So wonderful job done!

si scott is such a great influence - on me too (although you couldnt tell at all by my work).

your style is a lot looser than his IMO, he works really tight with the swirls. hes also a bit more abstract than this... would i mistake this for his work? no, but i can certainly see that the person who made it had to of seen si scotts work because it looks influenced by it.

never be ashamed of being influenced by someone, nothing in this world will ever be original.

well... neat work. But the style must have been influenced by Si Sccott.(the deformation of the edge of the letters are showing it.) I think he is the creator of this style. part of classical, part of modern.
Anyway, nice patchwork with your own idea!
