I’ve more or less, with this image, finished all the practical elements of the project. The last practical assignment for this project was to design a billboard ad for Red Bull. Since the character I had designed was Medusa, I thought this was an amusing idea. The basic design and layout is based on the Heineken ad I had mentioned in an earlier post and I twisted Red Bull’s slogan “Red Bull gives you wings” to match the Heineken ad’s curtness. On to the group’s critique and submission! 😀

I finally finished the turnaround sheet! (Hurray!) 😀 Being my first time doing a turnaround sheet I struggled to get it right and measured correctly so they were the same at first, but with help from guides and grids and stuff, I got there! I took some tips from the previous blog link and took note of having one arm bent and one arm straight to help later on. I think I did okay, a lot more simple than I’m used to doing but doesn’t look too shabby if I say so myself. What do you guys think? Constructive criticism/critique is always welcome! Now…I just wait and see what my group thinks.
I figured it might be useful to post some screenshots of WIP’s. 🙂 *rages at Photoshop for being uncooperative while working*
As I was preparing to draw the turnaround character sheet for Medusa, I kinda realised that my usual style was a bit difficult for me to draw all the way around – also time consuming and I had to bear in mind time restraints. Not to mention this being my first turnaround sheet. So I considered drawing her in one of my other,simpler styles to see which worked. Although in this sketch page here, I liked both I went for style A rather than B as I think it’s more light and appropriate for the project.
Hey guys, recently I’ve not been feeling to good (I’m sure you don’t want to hear how I threw up my insides so I’ll stop there 😛 ) so my progress has been a little slow. None the less I’m not too far behind. 🙂 I managed to keep in touch with my group members and decided on things. Regarding the logo, everyone loved my idea so we all drew a design or two, mine wasn’t the best but I’m okay with that. One of the others’ designs were much better thought out and draw so I liked their designs better anyway. 🙂 Most of us already had drawn sketch pages and such for our character design and are drawing a final turnaround sheet. In my case I think the pre-cursed Medusa design was by far my favourite anyway and had decided on drawing. Off I pop – to drawing things!! 😀
