Character Design Challenge 08/2017 – Robots and Androids
”A mysterious Fortune Teller has just arrived in your town. No one knows who she is, nor where she came from, but rumours claim she owns a unique set of Tarot cards: when she shuffles them and then lays a card on the table, the character in it comes to life..” – This short brief invited artists to the new Challenge at the beginning of July 2017. And people from the whole World started to share their beautiful artworks. And so did I. I’ve created an interpretation of Strength, a Tarot Card of Major Arcana.
Character Design Challenge (CDChallenge) is an amazing challenge in which people from the whole World participate. Its main goal is to unite artists no matter what is their skill level or style. CDChallenge promotes their art, thus helps them to develop their skills. The greatest thing, in my opinion, is that people help each other. And to be honest I myself noticed, like never before, that my skills get better. Not only in a field of technique (the process was faster) but as well as in creative thinking.
At the beginnig the problem lied in a choice of the right Card. I was choosing from a selection of 22 Major Arcana’s Carts. Firstly I planned to create a character that refered to Tower Card (disaster, sudden changes, revelation). I took an interst in Temprace (balance, patience) and Wheel of Fortune (good luck, karma). But at last I choose Strength (courage, control). I did some researche about it.
Character Design of Indian Dancer made for Character Design Challenge in May.
Presale! – new carts
Promotion banner – Playmarket’s carts sale.
A promotion banner design made as part of the work for wozkinazakupy.pl. The company asked me to design a banner for the newest sale promotion in their shop. The sale included a selection of shopping carts from Spanish manufacturer – Garmol.The project of promotion banner design included few propositions of design. After the choice of the design which met the expectations, I created three colour variations for it. The choice of the colours I have used based on the image of the company. They are subtle but catchy. The banner was placed on company’s web page as well as the fan page on Facebook (with dimensions changes).
The land of Vikings
A very long time ago in a distant land of Vikings was a little settlement of brave warriors. Those people have never felt a fear of any other people. They believed that the constant war was their destiny and a mission from gods. “The land of Vikings” is a series of Viking character designs with a different role in their society.Berserker, Fearless, Connector, Cheif and Smith – five character designs represent various people in “Land of Vikings” society. The miscellaneous allowed me to dig into my creativity and create totally different kind of design. To establish a design of their appearance I did some reaserch in Norse art. I have possesed a knowledge of a different art styles, so I could design armours. In addition I choose poses that could give the most personality to the characters. At the beginnig I designed the berserker. Jorunn is a typical warrior. She enjoys the fight with few opponents at once. She seems like gaining energy from the combat. The scars are her throphies. Guthroth, Fearless, on the other hand is a little bit different. While he still love the battles, he rather picks up the most difficult opponents. (More work in progress)
