For Mills Advertising I’ve created this illustration. They made a beautiful photograph for NSK, an automotive company who is an expert in wheel bearings. They presented this bearing assembly inside of an oyster. I’ve made this illustration based on that ad, (as shown below) and painted an under water world. I’ve drawn moving elements around the oyster, but kept the oyster in the middle, so that it gives the pearl extra attention.
I’ve painted the pearl silver, so it reflects the light when you move the illustration around. I’m sharing more details of my process and material on Patreon!
