Digital painting using photoshop

We were asked by Coombe Farm Organic, here in Somerset, to produce a memorable image that represents their product line,  at the same time engaging their client base and encourage social media sharing. The guys/gals at Coombe Farm had a good idea of what they wanted – we interpreted their vision producing scamps, and 3D visuals.

We found illustration would suit this project well, enabling us to create ‘any’ image, we were not restricted by reference material, thats the beauty of illustration. Rob Loxston, Creative Director and Founder here at Rocketbox – took on the project and produced pencil sketches for client sign-off, based on the breeds of animals they use at Coombe – “I wanted to achieve a painterly quality – not computer generated” – We found a good solution was using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet – Rob designed brushes that replicated a gouache style of painting. Images were finally reproduced on aluminium laminate at approx 2.5 metres high and 6metres long!
