Minimalist Portraits for Echelon

...

The task was to illustrate three portraits and render their likeness as accurate as possible while maintaining a two toned color palette.

The key was to find the fine balance between necessary lines that would define the person accurately and shadows that would help bring clarity to the piece.

The client came back after the initial draft and requested certain changes to the faces, emphasizing that at this point, perhaps ‘accuracy’ may not have been the best way to go as it didn’t exhibit the portraits at their best.

That statement turned out to be true in this case, and a few tweaks later the project was a wrap.
