Master of Death. I had an idea from when looking for the previous day’s topic. So I saw this when scrolling around on Pinterest:
I was thinking that this was a symbol of death.. in a way.. in Harry Potter, so, another symbol was the IIDs of The Ice Girls from Day 23. Them arriving is basically the symbol of death that has occurred, so their company would need a good logo design. I did want to theme it off of this sort of idea:
However, I had used this with the museum on Day 11. But, (for spoiler reasons that I can’t say) it can also work for the logo for the Ice Girls. So for the logo designs, this would be the basis I’d go from.
I then had a quick look around Pinterest for some inspiration on what sort of logo I’d want to produce. The hand would be the feature, as holding the hand of the IID would start the calming atmosphere (see Day 23 for full explanation). So I found a few images to go from.
Now to put the ideas all together.
I started with a 3B to get in the angled shape and directionality of the hand. I used direct observation and the reference picture to do so. I then added in the plate in.
I then outline the whole thing in a 0.6 fine liner. However, the fingers did go a bit wrong.. but the overall sketch worked out okay. This is one of the reasons I’m not the biggest fan of ink, as it is a very permanent medium.
I then wanted to make the plate have a welcoming glow. I chose green and wanted to recreate a glowy effect similar to Day 27. I did add a bit too much colour, which I tried to water down best I could.
Overall the drawing could’ve been better, but also could’ve been worse. I will rework it at some point, however, for now it isn’t too bad, and gives me a better idea on plate design. Plus, since it’s a droid, it doesn’t have to be perfect, not all droids would look identical to humans.
Until Next Time.
