Inner Jungle design process

Inspiration comes in many forms and shapes.
A few days ago I had a dream, that I am a jaguar, crawling in a lush jungle, between exotic flowers and giant leaves.
I really felt it, and the next day I started to sketch. 



I wanted to combine the heart shape with the jungle flora. And I mean not the heart shape we all know from cards and text messages, I imagined the roots and branches to form a anatomically correct human heart.
So first I was looking up some references for both the heart and for the plants of the jungle and the creatures living in the shadows of them.



I had a color palette in mind, but than watching my references and working on the coloring of my initial sketch, the colors shifted a bit.
I was aiming to make my design alive and vivid with mixed colors. 



And here it is, the final design on many object as usual!

Keep the jungle in you alive!
