Here's a fun piece I made for my Twitter page. I wanted something super cool to hit people in the eyeballs with, should they wish to look at my page. I've always struggled with personal branding, but decided to let loose on this piece and see where I could go with it and how much personality I could fit on those pixels.
I started thinking about what I like. At first silly little things like my favourite number, fruit and flower. Then on to my personality and values. If you know me, you'll know that I'm a very happy, loving and giggly human, this is where the heart character comes in to play, she's bursting with joy! I'm also quite the feminist and will not hesitate on shutting something inappropriate down, hence the no and the stabby dagger! Beware! Overall I wanted to give off the vibe of someone who is very loving, happy and optimistic, but also very strong, powerful and fierce.
I pulled some inspiration from an old drawing of mine, 'she's a goddess' and some more from a couple of my favourite images on Pinterest. You'll also notice that the small collage on the right is where my colour palette inspiration came from. You may also recognise the 6 numeral and the big leaf!
Once I sketched out the basic layout of elements and gathered my colour inspiration, I jumped right into photoshop. All of the elements are redrawn with my Wacom tablet and Kyle T Webster's amazing brushes. I used a brush with a charcoal effect to get that nice gritty texture on the edges, which I loooovve! Thanks Kyle! ;D
I'm super happy with how this piece turned out. Thanks for checking it out!
