Salvador Dali

April 29, 2009

I have this project that needs to be done about some random person, to which I picked Salvador Dali, being an extremely influential creative individual both in society at the time to even nowdays, and by agreeing with many feelings and aspects he expressed via his personality, and subsequently via drawings, acting, photography, etc.

Anyway, doing a complex cover is not exactly necessary, nonthless, I found this as an opportunity to motivate and set myself an aim at creativity. Here’s a few results, I should produce more as ideas come along, there’s still plenty of time before I need this delivered.

If able, I’ll probably print one of the oil canvas ones in an actual canvas, should give a nice, visual, tactile appeal.

Cheers!

University Ribbon

April 26, 2009

Anyway, in Portugal there’s this custom where soon-to-be-graduates hand out ribbons to others, so they can write things, wishing good luck, etc. Which brings me, I was handed this kind of ribbon, and went to work!; now all there’s left is to write a message and hand it out. Here’s the design, which I found funny how I ended up “sketching” in photoshop and doing the actual work as I went (also doing by pen and without the addition of color, that became mandatory halfway).

And here’s the drawn out work, added with details and fleshed out as needed;

detail-33

Custom is to write messages and such, but I find they all end up being the same archetypes – the person in question knows I wish them the best of everything, so I might as well draw in something that carries some meaning, diferentiates from other ribbons and relates to the person in question.

Cheers!

Random Update

April 3, 2009

I wish I could focus more on tasks at hand. In reality, what happens the most is spreading out efforts amongst several things and not accomplishing anything. With that said, here’s some random work, a first for a finished Illustrator + ‘Shop work.

First time I went ahead and accomplished thru a sketch to the computer. Also learned a few things about saving files and image types, what can be saved, etc.
