A thing I drew the other day. Scanned and goofed around with it in PS. Plenty else I'm sure I could think to do with it, but I'm supposed to be working on a CD project.
I'm trying to post art on a regular basis- what do you think?
CD project is annoying. It's a first draft, so he's not going to kill us if the work isn't spectacular, but I don't want to come in there with nothing to show for the past week, either.
We need 5 different type system layouts. So far I have three... ish. I'm not thrilled with any of them, but I don't feel like I know what exactly I should be looking for to make them better.
The graphic design stuff is pretty humbling. I feel totally lost, like I'm somehow stumbling through my projects as though by accident. It's like it's a totally different vocabulary from illustration, with deceptive similarities. Like Spanish and Italian languages, maybe.
Maybe I'll try to get my layouts into a form I can post so you all can
I find myself wishing for an online critique community for graphic design, like conceptart.org style or something. I mean, Yerf's critique groups back in the day taught me a LOT, even if there were eventually bad habits I needed to unlearn. It was a great encouragement to learn, and it was cool having a sense of community about making the art better.
