I decided to start looking at some of my original illustration ideas that were the first, drafts of the ideas for the gif animations with in the Walk the line project. There were a few that I felt needed to be shown in the light once more, and could really use a creative update. Not only that, they were drawings that I really wanted to try out again, yet, I didn’t know where, and luckily enough, this is the project that will do just that.
I chose a select few, due to the fact, that I wanted to keep the link of the words that these images are associated with. As the posts chosen reflect the word ‘Feel’ more than the rest, I found that this may help me more with choosing how the publication or the content of the document may be laid out.
Reminder: How these illustrations may look, may change over the next few days. I want to try out a few compositional ideas with the concept, as I would like to see how colour may work with them as well.
I decided that my first approach with the illustrations, was to take another look at the images already presented in the posts. The first was the hand, so I tried to redraw this in many ways with just thick felt pens and later with fine liner pens. I wasn’t happy with the thin lines, as i had to consider that when printing those out, sometimes those don’t always show. The choices in colour were chosen, due to that the previous one had a variety of different colours being used. I had to narrow it down to what colours may work well, but all in to consideration with the word the image was based on, I wanted to keep to its meaning and try to consider two colours that would amplify feeling.
I might revisit this method again soon, but I would like to try being playful with how I draw out the hand and see if I could start overlaying or even collaging it with other hands soon.
I wanted to try revamping this guy again, as he was also an important aspect to my gif project. I had to consider how i could really take advantage with his look this time, since we’ll be using colour seperation and working with two tones.
I started to redraft his original look and decided that maybe, he might look better side on, to make him pop out of the page a bit more. To be honest, I’m not sure where this drawing or plan might go for him, but I had an idea, that maybe his clothes having patterns or different textures may be an interesting aspect to work with.
