x marks the spot

I've been working on a project for a new series of events happening in my hometown. I've put my creative print on their logos and sticker designs and these illustrations below mark the result of my first ideas. 

The event series is called ecstatic and it basicly revolves around music (and art, hence my part in all this), and it truly lives up to its name. We've based the concept around the X (phoneticly spelled "ecs") and I've played a bit with that shape using geometry and creatures.

And I was super glad I finally put my tablet to good use and played a bit with digital drawing and colouring. I'm quite new to this, but ecstatic (*wink*) to learn new techniques.

arz - civilian female costume

As I've said in a previous post I really wish I could design more these ARZ civilian costumes, but the time was limited and we had to proceed with colouring one for the final look. I've had a similiar project last summer, which I hope I can talk about more in a future post (or several), where I sketched around one hundread designs revolved around a single concept and I was amazed of just how many ideas you can still get after that amount of work.

But getting back to this illustration, I've had free-hand on the colour palette, so I wanted something quite different from the typical science-fiction designs of the future. Usually we see neutral tones or dark shades of colour in the futuristic wear, but I wanted a departure from that concept, so I've added a bit more colour. Also played with some irridescent fabrics and a mix of textures, from smooth, textured leather-like pants to hard, metal accessories.

the rainbow planet

I said this week will be all about logos and in the last minute, I'm keeping my promise. It's been hectic in my tiny workplace lately so I'm trying to keep up with everything. Today's illustration was commissioned by a good friend of mine and fellow artist, she wanted something fun and colourful as her logo for her handmade products. Mainly revolved around rainbows, I thought I would paint her surrounded by colour. She named it her "rainbow planet" I I think it fits just right.
