How to… Be Conceited: Editorial Development

Here’s some experimentation with colour and texture working toward the final artwork

I’m almost done with this one at this stage but I can see that there is a little something that I could do to improve it.

2 More New Editorial Briefs: “How To… Be Conceited” And “How To… Undo Things”

The firstĀ  article is “How to… be conceited “by Guy Browning. In it describes the annoyance experienced by anyone who is unlucky enough to know person with a severe case of self-love and adoration. These kinds of people can only think of themselvesĀ  and are the center of their own worlds.
In my illustration I want to show that a conceited person is constantly their chosen subject of conversation and that they have a tendency for extreme amounts of vanity.

So here is some original line work

the character and her speech bubble, i want to show that she’s always talking about herself

I’ll have more sketches to put here later after I scan them.

Here is composition and the first application of colour


The second article is “How to… undo things” written by Guy Browning. In this one he talks about the difficulties in taking back mistakes we may make in life and how convenient it would be to have the use of ctrl + Z in real life.
Here’s a bit of line work
and here with some colour

admittedly these don’t look too good so far, trust me, they’ll get better.

New Editorial Brief: Why Small Victories Matter

I was asked to design an editorial illustration to go with the article “Why Small Victories Matter” written by Oliver Burkman. The artical talks about the benefits of taking a more positive attitude by taking pleasure in the minor triumphs in life.
I would like to express this in my illustration. It should should be up beat and positive.
Here is my original line work

Here is my idea for the composition of the final image with some colour possibility.

SPAM!- The 3 Characters.

Here are the 3 finnished characters together in a composition


and here is the composition and characters with the digitally developed text and all the logos
I’m not yet satisfied with this as an image and feel that there is more that can be done to improve it. I particularly dislike the background and it’s colour, the characters don’t seem to stand out enough. I can create something more effective, eye-catching and energetic.
