Mit grosser Freude schreibe ich diese neue Ausgabe meines persönlichen Zeichner-Newsletters.
Ich habe mein on-line Portfolio komplett überarbeitet und alle Kategorien enthalten neue und aktuelle Illustrationen, Cartoons, Designs und Animationen/Videos welche ich für diverse Kunden gestalten durfte.
Trying out the swanky Editor in the WordPress iPhone app and using this opportunity to point out that there has been a major site update. All categories have been updated with new artwork and the entire navigation and presentation has been given a new look as well.
I hope you enjoy some of the new illustrations, designs and cartoons and please stay tuned, because there will be new posts coming very shortly as well as a new newsletter update.
Regular client Sanafort AG (a renowned Swiss producer of natural Reishi mushroom and other tonic herbs and food supplements) needed website and newsletter graphics for Christmas and the New Year and to advertise upcoming product launches and promotions.
As always they allowed me a lot of creative freedom and I think the results are quite elegant.
Es war mir eine grosse Freude als Charakter Designer, Illustrator und Whiteboard Video Produzent bei diesem Projekt mit dem Team der Firma digades zusammenzuarbeiten.Vielleicht gibt es schon bald neue Abenteuer mit unseren Freunden Michael und Stefan aus dem Video.
Von Ideen und Konzepten, über Storyboard, Charakterentwicklung und Character Design, Sympathiefiguren und Maskottchen, Illustrationen und Reinzeichnungen in diversen Stilrichtungen für Druck, Web und Video kann ich Ihnen das gesamte Spektrum anbieten.
This is what the rough sketch looked like when it was completed:
and then I placed this rough sketch on a template layer inside my Adobe Illustrator document and drew and inked the line art for the three characters, the Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin, the witch/vampire lady and the werewolf.
Finally I also colored the artwork in illustrator using flats and shading and also several gradients.
The final artwork looks like this and is 100% vector art so it has no pixels and can be scaled to any size losslessly.
Follow me along in the following tutorial videos. If you have any questions please post them as a comment under the videos in my YouTube channel and I will try to answer them as quickly as possible.
