Work in progress…This is just the line work.
It’s an album cover for a project I am working on THAT WILL NOT BE COMPLETED ANYTIME SOON.
Currently gonna work on picking the fonts and stuff. I want to make a mock up booklet and see how it turns out so there’s more images I want to make.
Potential postcard design… not certain how finished it is yet!
Speedy art trade with Fetlocks, her character Kai. He’s actually a boy.
I think you’re kind of cool. Even though your baldric doesn’t make sense and even though your hair is that same length as all my other characters.
I drew this ages agooooo, but whatevs. Her design has changed a bit since I last drew this, but not too much. I made her heavier set now, I feel I should ditch the bandanna too since I freaking tend to give all my characters scarfs, ascots or bandannas. Haven’t fully decided if I like the lighter hair or darker.
So this is Rye. Part of a few characters I am designing for some future projects that deal with music I will be making. She’s a fictional/virtual musician. Think of the characters from the Gorillaz, or Studio Killers you can read more here.
I’ll talk about them more later!
I’ve always had an interest in making music. I play guitar in my spare time, but recently started to feel a little limited by it. I know not everyone feels that way with this instrument since you can make tons of interesting and unique music with it, but I just feel like I have a lot of music ideas that I can’t really execute with guitar alone. I also don’t have any friends who are musicians so I can’t really do collaborative works either.
ANYWAYS. For the past few months I’ve been even interested in electronic music more than usual. I still really love acoustic music, but I suddenly just had an interest in learning more about the different ways electronic music is made. So I downloaded a couple of DAWs and been messing around with them. They took a while to understand and there’s still more I need to learn about them, but I feel like I know enough to actually start to make songs… So I finally got a full version of one. I tried FL studio first, and whoa, was it weird at first, but then I got the hang of it. Then I tried Ableton…Ableton sounds very nice, the samples/effects are pretty good, I also hear it’s good for recording which I may want to do eventually…HOWEVER, I am not a fan of it’s interface, it doesn’t seem to click the same way FL studio does so I ended up getting a full version of FL. I’ll get Ableton too. MAYBE. If things go well with FL Studio, but first I’m gonna make a few projects with it. See how they go, like if really enjoyed making them, maybe I’ll feel like they were too much work and I end up not liking the outcomes. Either way, this is a hobby! And I’m going to just make music for fun mostly, I don’t expect this to be a future career possibility or anything.
To keep interested though, throughout the year while I am creating songs. I am gonna do some design work, logos and covers, things like that for 3 different characters I’ve created. They are supposed to be fictional/virtual musicians that will sort of represent the different types of music I make. (Like the characters from the Gorillaz or Studio Killers). I KNOW IT SOUNDS SILLY, BUT IT ACTUALLY SOUNDS LIKE FUN TO ME. I’ll make a separate tumblr to post the songs I make and all the other stuff too, but once I have atleast 3 songs completed. I’m currently working on a few, but they need a lot of work still.
SO YEAH, THAT’S ALL I WANTED TO SAY. LATER.
So for class we had to look at other illustrator’s/designer’s business cards and resumés and give our opinions on them. I’ll be presenting these in class so I will elaborate more there, but for here I am just gonna add some very simple notes.
+appealing and fitting for his style
+Card isn’t cluttered too much and get’s to the point
+simple yet effective
+Fits their style and what they do
+interesting idea and design
-Not uniform with his webiste
-The card looks very appealing and colorful, but the site it leads you to does not feel like the artwork on the card
-It would be rather expensive to print these, even though they do make neat little business card Eisels, I don’t see it’s design as very practicable or necessary
+The black and white card is very eye catching because of the beautiful, symmetrical black and white illustration
+Neat overall clean look, uniform with their site.
+creative and unique
-Resume is legible, but could probably be simplified more or just have less illustrations.
Other Resumes I found
+creative and fun
-many are hard to read and too detailed.
