This was originally intended as blog designed so that Andy Norton, a postgraduate in Creative Digital Media, could discuss his influences whilst working on a comic for his Creative Portfolio Development module on that master’s degree.
Now, the blog is intended to share articles relevant to his interests, as well as his artwork (past and present), as an experience graphic designer, with a background in illustration and animation.
I think it's time to ditch this old brush pen, as it starting to make really weak marks when I'm using it. Apart from that, this is okay, although I need to get more confident with conveying hair with the brush pen.
I was able to do my life drawing on the bus again. I was quite pleased with my result with drawing just the man's head, whilst the detail on the bus window might be a bit too abstract amongst the scribbly mark-making I was making on the right.
We've finally made it! This maybe the last day of Inktober, but that doesn't mean that I will slowing down anytime soon. I devised some covers based on the main character of this comic I have been working for this client. It is just another angle for me to play with before I develop my mood board to present to the client.
I am a man of my word! I looked back at the research my client had sent, so I took my initial designs into another direction. Might go for the right one as it looks dynamic - without the censored text or face!
Following on from yesterday's brief, I have now been given the full title from the client, so I have to take into account a lot more text then my previous attempts had used. I have a simple concept I want to play with, so I may or may not explore this further. Although I might have to revist some of the client's inspiration to create a few more ideas.
