Digital Exploration Pt.3
The brief to myself was to unleash the shackles (what few I have) and just create something for the sheer hell of it. As I was about to release the new Fully Illustrated site, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to create some art to celebrate it, so the brief to myself was to simply create something that made me smile and could tie into the process of digital creation.
I'd been playing around with a few techniques for a while along these lines and wanted to pursue them a little further, so I dedicated a big fat chunk of time to doing just that. I soon came upon this idea and started to flesh it out into the three images you see here. It was really nice to create something like this purely for fun, it made me feel like an artist again :)
After creating that scruffy looking combat droid I was inspired. New style, new burst of enthusiasm, so hold on tight, there's gonna be looooooads more of this style coming soon.
Creating the brand for Cocos 2D was great fun and it was great to give something back to the company that gives so much to the industry!
