Back from vacation, I feel great to come back to my pencils. Here are the 5 steps I used for creating a crazy cat from the sketch to the final result. The vector desig is perfectly adapted for printing on very small or very large product without loosing quality. A new mascot is ready!

We start with a small pencil sketch, outlined with a large pen. Then this is the vectorization step completed by some alterations on the initial drawing and followed by colorization. A blue cat? Why not, it matches so well its funny look. For shadows and touches of light, you need to imagine one or more light sources and visualize the character in 3D! Well, I’m still working on it…

Have a good week!

Today, bring out a drawing I colourised during last autumn. The original sketch has been done by LN : Sweet enripsa. I first discovered her blog: Shy Attitudes through my random drifts on internet and then her Flickr portfolio. For me, this drawing means the drawing passion and goes perfectly with my urge to seize back the pencils and creating this blog. Finaly, I opted for a colourisation using Photoshop of this drawing to take me off… and that worked well: 2 days of colourisation later, I start drawing again!

This one is much more blue to depict water since the product are water containers. The vases are turned into red corals surrounded by fishes.

I’ve seen today some new submissions in the Normann Copenhagen’s Flickr album… some are simple but creative. Have a look on this album: Submission 2009

Second participation to the contest Norman Coenhagen as explained yesterday: “Turn around the World”

The title is “Under the lights”in reference of the poduct: a roof light. As the first one, I have kept the strokes simples to keep a visual difference between the product and the drawing.

The woman’s drawing has been done before this contest, in 2003 to illustrate a Maloya dance contest. Native from Reunion Island, Maloya was a rebellion dance to protest against the slavery. This dance consist to move vigorously all the body, trampling and keeping the feet close as if they were hold together by chains.

Do you know Normann Copenhagen? It’s a Danish design company with a good range of nice and invenive products. I love especially the simplicity of their collections. I told you about this company while they started on monday a contest around their last collection. If you want more information, have a look on be creative and win!

Here is my first contribution:

In this picture, I tried to keep it simple, fresh and dynamic emphasizing the movement and the transparency of the glass with an analogy with the earth movement and the atmosphere transparency.
