So I was pondering ideas on what sort of gig I should start doing next. At the same time I wanted to draw something cute, so I started off with Pikachu form Pokemon. I didn't want it to be just any old ordinary Pikachu though so, I thought, why not color him differently. "But What colors?", I said. Just then my stomach made a noise so I went to go feed myself. The first thing I saw when I looked into the cabinet was a box of Trix cereal. The Trix Rabbit was obsessing over those colorful bits of sugar again and that's when I got the idea to make Pikachu the colors of the Trix Rabbit. I shall call him..... PITRIX!
After that I needed another idea on what sort of characters to combined. My partner thought he was giving me a hard one when he chose Radical Edward from Cowboy Bebop and Michelangelo from TMNT. Together they became..... EDDIANGELO!
One client had a big request for an image of 600dpi. I didn't think my computer would be able to take it but I managed to get it done. It was actually quite fun drawing up the scenery as well as the characters that kind of just came off the top of my head as I was putting this whole thing together. The client had a story line in mind but while I was recreating it I put a couple personalities of my own in that might make the scene interesting and somehow tell the client's story without words.
We started off with a simple sketch of what the client was looking for. This was the original idea.
This was the end result. The client wanted resemblances of Makoshika Park in the background so there is a bit of scenery back there with some structures I quickly faded together.
This is the main character Katie. She was injured during the game and was put on the sidelines to watch while they had a less enthusiastic player take her place.
I was thinking, the girl in green with the pony braid was the shy and timid team player on Katie's team.
The girl in orange is the team captain of the opposing team who is actually pretty friendly and a fair player.
This girl is the cautious player on Katie's team, who could also be Katie's best friend.
This girl is a star player on the opposing team who cares only about winning.
This girl is a trouble maker on the opposing team and is known to cheat.
This girl is Katie's team captain, she's a bad ass who doesn't like to lose but she encourages the team even on their off days.
These are the soccer moms! Proud and cheering for their girls during the game.
Again these aren't the actual personalities or roles that the girls in the images play in the real story. This is just what I've been imagining as I drew them.
A client of mine wanted to create a logo out of a portrait of herself. She started off with a different Fiverr artist and then somehow found me. I re-created the image on the left in my own style and used a portrait of the client to make the facial features more realistic.
There were a number of different versions of her after that to get the right feel for her logo.
I flipped the image.
I widened her smile, took away the rings and made her wink.
I tried drawing her in a different pose.
Then I went back to raise her smile and eyebrows once more.
And finally I made her look through the magnifying glass.
My client was pleased with this one.
With all the editing I did, this could have been an animation she said. She's even thinking about having me animate it now. LOL!
Recently I've had the chance to work with a wonderful client who hosts her own Weight Loss Program to inspire women to loose weight by "Living Wildly". Her program is called "Wildly Alive Weight Loss" and you can see what her program has to offer here: http://wildlyaliveweightloss.com/
Here are a couple of the unfinished works I did for her that I really enjoyed making. I didn't post some of the completed work because I want to leave that to her site to show off, but you'll know my work on her site when you see it, because it is very similar to these few images. Nichole, I wish you the best of luck with your business! :-)
