View Full Version : My frist WIP.. sport images for a memory game
01-05-2006, 03:27 AM
Hello, :wavey: this is my first time posting my WIP here :D
The following images I am making them for a simple memory game. There are 8 images of sports theme. I used references for all of them. The more I look at them I get this "clip art" feel about it..., but oh well here is what I have so far.
Any crits suggestions etc are welcome..
The final output will be a lot smaller 100*150 pixles (the size of the cards).
These are bigger to show some detail

hi Ines :wavey: i just saw this thread today (think it got buried fast cos the forums were busy lately)
your drawings need more shading around the edges i think.. they're good but abit flat at the moment. for example, when using orange, try "enhance" the shape of the orange object by using various shades of orange from light to dark
the sailboat pic is the best of the lot :)
edit: added image to show what i mean (just a suggestion, btw, it depends on what your client prefers)

Thanks Deaderthanred I appreciate the suggestion.. hmm yeah I can see what you mean, thanks for posting an example :D. I did that a little with the bowling ball picture but I agree the rest of the images need a little more variation in color to give it more depth. They do look flat dont they?
I'll work on that. Lighting is my worse enemy :)
Oh its a windsurf not a sail boat :D lol, and that one is my favorite too.. it looks like it was made in illustrator, I dont know how I made my lines so straight and clean for that one.
hmm 75 views and only one comment... I can take critcs people .. go for it.

Hey there! :)
For things that are symmetrical, like the bowling pins, make these in Photoshop or Illustrator from a non~rotated / front on view by doing one half, and then duplicating and flipping the other half from the center pivot. I recommend using the path / pen tool in PS. Then, once you've painted and tweaked stuff to taste, then and only then merge the two halves into one and rotate the whole bowling pin accordingly.
My two cents, hope it helps. :)

Hi Rebecca :D
You know that is a clever idea.. I always think about that when I work in 3D. Make half of the object and then mirror it. Funny how I did not think about it for 2D work. I am going to try that out. I need to learn illustrator since I never use it to get those nice clean lines. I did use the pen tool for the windsurf image and that is my favorite one because the lines are clean. I should try it in my other images. Thanks so much for your comments :D I always appreciate it.

No prob Ines! :) I like the path tool in Photoshop. Nice and vectorsmooth as in Illustrator, but I like to work in PS way better, so it's quite handy there. :)
If you ever need any help (and it's something simple) :D, just email me. :)
