Kamelot Concert

My husband went to a rock concert the other night and took some pictures. I saw them and was inspired to make some vector art. I really liked this one picture of the visiting artist and how the light was pink and yellow on her. Right now I can't decide if I want to do all the belts and buckles on her outfit or if I should leave it plain. Also, there was a yellow light hitting her as well and I tried playing with that idea. It is still rough, but at least you get the idea of it. Any comments or critiques are welcome.

Rooster Painting

My mother-in-law commissioned me to do a painting of a rooster for her kitchen. It is purely for decoration and not illustrative. Here are some concepts I came up with and I am not sure which one I like best. Maybe the first one because it's so flowy and would be fun to paint. The second one  is quirky and the last one is cute. So we'll see. I am hoping to get this done pretty quickly and I think it will be a good "for fun" piece to do.

Sunday Sketches

 I haven't posted anything lately because the company I am working with for the children's book still needs to finalize the contract. I have a lot of concept art for it, but until we figure out the copyrights I cannot post what I have been working on. So I am showing you sketches I did yesterday. The first 3 I did during church and the last one I did of my mother-in-law at a dinner party we had yesterday. I wonder if people think I am not paying attention at all when I sketch, but in reality it really helps me listen to the things going on around me, or focus on a speaker.

Cute birds!

So I really liked what anonymous said to help my little birdie problem. So here is the new one and in the primary colors too! As far as the logo, my aunt chose a. for the final one. She will be using the little birds on her website.

Locrydian Logo

Hi Everyone!

So these past few weeks I have been working on a logo for my aunt's music producing company, which is mostly directed to children and infants. I worked on finding the right type face as well as how it looked for most of the time. I only had a day or 2 to work on the logo symbol and here is what I came up with.

a. I researched what a locrydian/mixocrydian and on wiki it said that an example of it is the intro to Sweet Child O' Mine. So cool! So I tried to visualize what it looked like and I came up with the movement behind the text.

b. I wanted to play with kiddie idea some more, and if the music my aunt creates were and animal it would be a bird. It is acapella and happy sounding so I felt that it fit. Although my original was said it looked like a fish so I fixed it and came up with the image below.

c. I wanted to play with the treble clef and researched it so I wouldn't be accidentally copying anyone and I came up with the above.

I have to say logo creating is fun. I still need practice, but I tried to keep to the logo design principles.

Any feedback is welcome! Happy Friday!
