From sketch to final design! Let me know what you think!

  • My initial "napkin" sketch
    Then the follow up sketch after I decided that napkin sketch was the idea I wanted.
    First ink to try and see how my lines would look. Didn't like it, so I redrew it and did it again.
    The ink redraw!
    And my final Piece!

    There are a couple small changes I plan on making, like mAllow instead of mEllow, and just going to move the text of Captain a little bit down off the border, and might thicken up some of the exterior lines, but otherwise I was quite pleased. This whole process took about 5 hours from through/design to finish. I have been wanting to practice more design and logo looks and originally wanted to do this in Illustrator but ended up doing it in Photoshop instead.

    Thanks for sharing your process. I think it turned out great. I did like the original mouth a little more. But this one gives him a more Duh look.

  • Thanks for the response @Chip-Valecek ! I did like the first face a little better as well, but after talking with a few people in person who know the creature type we agreed the final one was more appropriate. I have since made a few minor adjustments to get some edges off of each other and thickened up some lines. Can't wait to print a few and see how they look on paper!

    Really great to see the piece transform from the rough to the finish. Thanks for sharing!

  • Wow! It is always really cool to see the process. How a napkin sketch can turn into a really interesting and useful illustration. What inspired this logo idea?

  • @RJWoodworth Thanks! I think what inspired it was a mix between liking the creature design itself (Murloc from World of Warcraft) and just thinking of cereal. Mrrgl is kind of like some of the sounds they make, and I was just sitting at work thinking about a Murloc cereal, in my head Mrrgl-O's sounded really cool. I think just kind of telling myself I wanted to come up with some logo designs for practice helped push my mind towards this.
