We are currently creating a ident for fictional production house, I had previously created a still title for my Future Spartacus project and so this current project inspired me to animate this as well.
I am revisiting previous projects in an attempt to get all my work completed, below is a link to the previous post.
Below is an idea that I am exploring for my Hercules imagery, this is a quick concept that i developed really quickly, I will explore more as so far I like the image below.
I have been revisiting all my University projects and getting them to a level that I am happy with, this post includes a character design that I had previously created but hadn’t yet digitally rendered and also a sketch of a possible location/arena.
Below is the before and after version of my chosen character design.
I am really happy with how this turned out, I have been practising a lot on Photoshop recently and I have seen a big improvement. I had trouble with colours here because of a discrepancy between my laptop and the MACS at college. I originally just created the version without smoke, but because i felt like I wanted to develop the picture some more and also I had recently created several smoke brushes in Photoshop I added the extra detail.
And my Arena based on a multi-storey car park.
Within this project the location part of the project is what i struggled most with, I am really not happy with this and given more time would have started this part again.
Today we briefly discussed coming up with names for characters, places, objects etc, usually this can be a time consuming process and thus we created a name generator. This is made up of 2 columns and each column contains specific words of my choice, for example first column had things like colours, metals, tastes etc, and the second column has animals,emotions, geographical phenomena. This allows you to randomly slide the two sheets (seen below) alongside each other and create names that you like very quickly. For example: IRON BEAR EMERALD MOUNTAIN BLACK LOVE I used this name generator to come up with a name for a shop for another project, the name that was randomly created was “Jaggered Monkey” i really liked this and thought it sounded like a men’s hairdressers. I have started working on some ideas and below you can see a quick sketch, this will be added to shortly. I digitally rendered a possible shop logo and a quick mock up of the shop front.
I have recently revisited this project and create a finished concept piece that I am very happy with.
Here is a link to my previous post
Below are digital versions of some of the sketches that I created, followed by the final piece.
I was quite happy with the above sketches and quickly mocked up a background then layered them on top, I quite liked it so far and decided to develop it further.
As stated in a previous post I wanted to create something influenced by Shaun Tan’s book ” The Lost Thing” and I developed the above picture into the finished piece that you can see below. I used my development sketches as the background and I was really happy with the look which that gave. I added a mouse in the foreground as it had been missing from my sketches, I would like to eventually change the mouse and have one with reins and a saddle to emphasise that it is used for transport.
FINISHED PIECE (However text display will change)
