Finished making this today! I’m pleased with the lettering and design style. Different from what I usually make. I’m going have to refine this style and work on more projects like this! I’m heading to the airport in a bit to go pick up my brother. Excited to see him and his girlfriend. Will update you with more work tomorrow.
Here’s quick process shot of my lettering project so far. I’m done with the finalization of the layout and sketches, but indecisive if I want to go back to ink it. It looks fine in graphite, but I did it all on graph paper…so the photoshop edits have been difficult. Hence why not finished. I’ll update you tomorrow, but probably going to push the actual finalizing till Tuesday or Wednesday.
I’m leaving on a quick weekend visit the grandmother trip. That means 5 hours in a car tomorrow and on Monday when we drive back. I don’t have the greatest of surfaces to work on while there so if I decide to ink, I will hold off. Just because I want a lot of desk space and quiet concentration time. Family trips tend to be constant interruptions. Very disruptive when trying to ink and not make wobbly lines.
Since, I don’t have deskspace I plan on using all downtime possible to work on the title sequence. I’m leaning toward the Man Seeking Woman title sequence just because of the challenge it entails, but I have keep in mind that I don’t have a lot of time left. It might be more fun and interesting, however I have a tendency to overestimate my abilities thus bad estimates of the time it takes to finish. Aiming for all assets for sequence to be finished by Monday night so that I can spend as much time animating as possible.
Now I got to go pack, so night friends.
-yawn- I’m a bit tired from a long day. I didn’t make too much today. I’m sharing my few sketches for a lettering I’ve been working on the past week. I’m hoping to finish it this week. I’m devoting a large portion of tomorrow to sketches and decisions for the title sequence contest. Updates on that tomorrow.
So, didn’t get much done today. Busy gearing up camping and helping my sister out with her school work. I will be gone from the 4th – 7th. No internet equals no blog posts. I will journal, sketch, and photograph during the trip. All posts will resume on Monday, possibly Sunday if I feel up to it.
Here’s are the quick designs I mocked up for my sister’s project. Had fun creating this in an hour and half for her business class. Very fun quick project.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
I am well practice in coming up with an idea last minute and creating things…’cause once again that’s what I did today. Meet the lettering process below.
Okay so quick peek at some lettering for the selfi mograph. The one below is a little closer to the main idea I have.
So these letterings are variations on some ideas I have. I’m going to refine these for possible posters or something to put up on my portfolio. I might still animate these designs just to challenge myself. I’m testing out the texture technique too after watching some Skillshare videos. More to come soon.
Happy Father’s Day 2016! Here’s the lettering I created to celebrate my dad. ❤
Continuing on with my favorite inspiring & funny 2016 Oscar quotes. I’m planning on doing a few more later this week.
Laszlo Nemes – 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film for Son of Saul
I found one of the quotes I wanted to illustrate from the Oscars.
“There are days you’re going to feel sad, you’re going to feel angry, you’re going to feel scared, that’s nothing you can choose. But you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It’ll make a world of difference. ” — Pete Docter, best animated feature winner for Inside Out
There’s a couple more, but I didn’t have time for them tonight. I hope this quote inspires you as much as it did me.
