Hello All! I am sending out a call for help on this rainy Monday we are having here. The Lilla Rogers Semi-finalist gallery has been opened for voting, so I would REALLY appreciate your time on this. If you follow the link here: http://lillarogers.com/gts-2014-round-2/ there are instructions on how to vote. Voting will close this Friday, September 12th, and the finalists will be announced Wednesday, September 17th.
This was such a nerve-wracking 10 days of creation. We had to create an animal character for a kids’ t-shirt. (You had the choice to include how to display, or add type to your image.) For me, the hard part was paring down what animal to represent! I did at least 4 versions of the pelican once I actually decided on the animal to illustrate. Then there were the thoughts on how to display this on an 8″x10″ that would be shown as a 72dpi image in a gallery of 50 people. After looking at the gallery, I do wish I’d done some different things, but the main thing they wanted was to see the animal character. So I bypassed all the mock up stuff and just showed off my birdy fisherman. Hope I made the right decision!
Here are some process sketches, to show the beginning to sweating out the end where I had to press the “Submit” button:
