Looking at these sketches makes me feel like drawing! But I don't have the time for such self-engrossing activities these days =(
Anyway i had to redesign my block's t-shirt cos it turns out looking like crap after they printed it out on a dryfit shirt.
Looks so wrong in so many ways~!
Not only was the base colour a hideous shade of boring dark blue which doesn't go well with white print, the image was printed tooooo huge and details look like errors on a real life- scale.
And for once i felt the drawbacks of being a designer in this kind of simulated client-designer situation. And could really relate to videos such as this hilarious youtube one and also this cute one.
Don't let the cute-looking robot characters fool you in the first vid, it's peppered with vulgarities =) *smiles*
Came up with a new design within the same night since the deadline was the next day.
Followed a superhero theme... here's part of it:
Hand drew the 'superhero', scanned it in and cleaned up the lines. Kinda covered by the 'seventy-one' words but there's 'HALL' vertically down the superhero's costume. Here's holding up a '15' and the abstract black shapes behind were meant to be '71' for my block number.
I hope it turns out fine... well it better be since it's the final submission and they'll be printing it out in bulk already =x
I'm kinda pissed that it has to be so last minute cos i didn't get to put in my best effort and it was kind of a mish-mash-here-you-go sorta thing.
* Despite how annoyed I sound, don't get the wrong idea. I still do love designing and working on works of art and would even do it for free (which i do) for the right people and reasons. It is something i enjoy doing and these are the kind challenges i welcome to push myself. Gaining experience is important to me and i can see myself learning from all these and it'll constantly improve my skills =) *
