I've been working on today's piece for a few weeks now. If you are a follower of my instagram, some portions of this post may seem familiar. Some time ago, Yui asked if I could create an image that incorporated her family into elements that she could identify with as a personal logo. After some thought, we concluded that merging the family business' into one design would be the most ideal. Her father's side created tofu, while her mother's side grows cabbage. Since she is the product of these two families, no other design solution made as impactful or visually-intriguing image as the thumbnails below.
Just before the Golden Week break, I started utilizing a method of painting that solely used masks and blend modes. By incorporating that method into the design process, I managed to get subtle color and lighting variations between various planes of both objects dependent on their orientation in space.
What do you think? What two things should I combine next? What imagery do you think represents your family? Leave your thoughts in the comments below. As always, don't forget to like and share this post~
Until next time,
