A French friend commissioned me to create a logo for her CIM class. They had some rough sketches already done, so my job was fairly straightforward. Choosing the right font was more time-consuming than creating the logo itself, ha ha. The blue was originally flat, so I added a radial gradient to add some volume, as well as reinforce the "CIM."
This was another design of theirs. I'm glad they chose the other one since this made me think of Earth as a tilted Saturn. The blue behind the text was my idea so that it had some weight, but I did one without it for comparison's sake.
It was a nice change of pace to work on something like this, especially since it will actually be used at her university! I'll post a link once it's up on their site and official.
A friend of mine asked if I had time to draw something for a friend of his so that he could give it to her this weekend at her graduation. Although likenesses are an area I need more work in, I was happy to help out!
He said it was amazing and relayed to me that she loved it as well. What a relief! It can be a roll of the dice when you're drawing someone, ha ha ha. I thought it looked nice in the frame he put it in.
This was a fun commission of an original character owned by a guy named Dan Williams. I wish that every who commissioned me was as easy and fun to work with as him!
He said her outfit consisted of a neon hoodie, a pastel floral-print short dress, and Converse shoes. He liked the look of her face and hair, but decided to switch out the shoes and belt for boots and an owl pendant. He also suggested a pose that looked like she was waiting for someone.
After getting the green light on my sketch, I began work on the final piece.
Late Night Light Bulbs
I could have modeled watches if art hadn't twisted my hand into a gnarled monkey claw.
