Pocky Final Piece

So here is my final piece for my Pocky advert! I did actually really enjoy making this and I hope you enjoy looking at it! The main characters and stuff are made out of paper and card and then its all put together and edited on photoshop. Glad its finally done anyway, now to tackle the rest of my mountain of work! Oh and Happy Halloween!

Madness Of Crowds Editorial

Really really struggled with this editorial and I'm not pleased with it at all, but my tutors seemed to like it so I guess that's all that really matters! Just one more of these to go.

Some more Pocky WIP

My advert is slowly getting there! Made these 3 characters yesterday with my new Silhouette Cameo. Very exciting stuff!! A lot quicker and less painful than cutting everything by hand with a little scalpel!

Sun, Sea, Sand...And Sniffles Editorials

So, here are three illustrations for another editorial. My tutors liked 2 of my initial ideas and the top two images are a variations of one and the bottom one is another idea. But I can't decide which one is best. I think I'm leaning towards the first one but any opinions you have are welcome. Here's the article too! It's basically about why people get ill when they go on holiday and stuff like that.

Pocky Advert WIP

Here's some work in progress of an advertising brief we've been given. We have to illustrate an advert for Pocky (Mikado) using a scientist, his assistant and his creature. After talking to a tutor about the above two roughs she said I needed to combine elements of each picture. So I did and came up with the image below! It looks a bit wrinkly because it's done on tracing paper but I'm pleased with it apart from the text at the bottom I need to work on that, its all a bit squashed!

Why Small Victories Matter Editorial

Another editorial piece. I like this one a lot better than my last but I'm still not sure that I've got the hang of editorials. I don't think I think outside the box enough. But practise makes perfect and all that.

A Social Gathering

So.. I think I've finished? I'm at that place where I don't know if I've edited too much, just enough or not enough. But if I carry on will I end up with too much? I think I need to leave it alone for a bit and come back to it later to decide. But this is more or less my final piece. Obviously I had to make life hard for myself on the very first project by making it 3D but I slowly slowly got there. And I am a lot happier with it than I thought I'd be. The composition is a bit off but there's not much I can do about that now unless I dismantle the whole thing...which just might destroy me!

Girl in tree: Cassandra Rhodin
Screaming boy: Oliver Jeffers
Creep behind chair: Edward Gorey
Girl under table: Mary Blair
Other thing under table: Joan Miro
Elephant: Dr Seuss
Drunk old lady: Erte
And the girl in the middle looking scared is supposed to be me.

How To Decorate Editorial

First bit of finished work for 3rd year. An editorial illustration for an article we were given about decorating and how we use it to express our personality. Not 100% happy with it, might need some more tweaking at some point.

A Social Gathering WIP

Just a quick upload of my first project for this year at uni! Eventually there will be lots of little characters in here having a tea party . . . Or at least that's the plan anyway!
