Character Design: Mr. Ramdu

I’ve been feeling a bit blah and aimless in the artistic department as of late. Inspiration doesn’t come very easily and I’ve been wanting to add a new character design portfolio piece, so yesterday I sat down and forced myself to be spontaneous. I think I’ll call him Mr. Ramdu, and I’ll make him some friends so that he won’t be lonely. Nobody should have to dance alone, after all . . .

Portfolio work — the Dynasty Trilogy

Portfolio work -- the Dynasty Trilogy

This is series of book covers I designed for my Graphic Design portfolio class. No actual story to go with them, sadly– just a vague “Hero’s journey” premise. Fairly simple to produce, too– like much of my other stuff, I simply Bitmap’d an inked drawing, created different colored “plates” on separate Photoshop documents, and then overlaid them to get that cool lithographed look.
