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 having the pleasure of finishing the microsite for Natural Selection 2 I was due to move onto the full site and forum re-design, so the brief, while simple (follow the same styling throughout), was also a challenge as I had the forums to tackle!
Accidental Fish, what a killer name and project! As we all know, creating characters is what I love most, and when a blooming good brief lands on my desk, giving me some rather lovely creative freedom, I enjoy it all the more!
