I just thought I’d write a little about my process on this.
As you can see I used photo reference to get the body position I was looking for as well a the folds in the clothing. I actually think the body posture in the photo is more dynamic than the final illustration, so I hope I’ll get better about that as this web comic progresses.
The background I did from my head because doing desert style expanses is pretty simple. To get the dust effect under the Grav board I I flicked my brush to get it to spray ink dots, I should use an old tothbrush for this but I don’t have one that will work yet.
Coloring often takes me forever and a day, so I decided in the interest of actually getting this series come out quicker I would mostly flat color this series with a few key areas having gradients or highlights. My hope is that by being carefully selecting really rich colors and occasionally coloring the line art, It won’t be missed. I’ll be doing some additional concept art soon.
Finally making progress on my upcoming webcomic.
Here’s some new concept art for Mars Lightning. Colors to come soon.
My new website is up! I built it with Adobe Muse (which was amazing to use). The mobile version is still pretty bare bones but the desktop browser version is almost fully fleshed out.I still need to fix the contact form but hopefully I can do that tonight.
This are my first three infographics. They were a lot of fun to make. It’s always a challenge trying to making something that hits all the marks. That being making something that conveys the information you want easily, making it artistically/aesthetically pleasing and making it something your client will like.
While this certainly isn’t perfect and I’m still new to infographics, I am happy with what I achieved at this point (on the third one) in hitting those three marks.
So for some of this I drew the vector objects myself or used live trace. For a couple things I just used stock vector art. I used stock art for the car and modified stock art for the boat. I don’t know whether anybody looks down on that or not but it’s all about time constraints. I try to compensate by making the layout as interesting as possible.
In terms of the layout I’ve seen some really cool hexagon layouts before and I’ve been dieing to try my hand at it. I wanted it to look friendly but electronic at the same time. That’s why I used lines connecting the hexagons that at least to me look like circuit board connections.
This is the first of a series focused on the concept that, while we have evolved and advanced as a society, certain mentalities prevail. This illustration titled “Predators” depicts business men on the hunt.
Creative Catharsis: Posters of Strange Client Quotes by Irish design duo, Mark + Paddy.
I found all of these hilarious. Some of them are almost a déjà vu of things I’ve heard clients say.
This is hilarious.
Brilliant!!! I deal with this stuff all the time.
Here’s the kickstarter for my children’s book.
