My project 3 was national sports team logo project. I chose “Manatees”, which is Florida’s baseball team, and this image is the original of team logo.
1. create a background line by pen tool before create details.
2. Fill a background colour.
3. create red ribbon because I think starting to create a line from big image is more easily to follow its line.
4. create inside circle lines and team name except any shadows.
5. to show a shadows of “Manatees” by pen tool. Now the name has liveliness than before.
6. create manatee behind the ribbon.
7. Add some details of manatee (eyes, eyebrows,tail, nose) and base ball.
-The red pattern was so hard to make because the original logo’s image quality was not good, so when I’v zoomed it and created the red patterns, it drove me crazy.. 😦
8. give to manatee a hat.
9. create another texts that “Brevard County”.
10. Create a baseball bat and fill the same colour with inside circle line.
10. Final logo.
Finally, after I create a “TM” line, the logo designing was finished.
While I’ve worked this project, I realized that I am not good at using pen tool in Illustration, especially creating circles. Also, because of some texts’ sharpness shapes, even though I tried to make it as same as sharpness, it was hard to make it exactly same. However, it was a very good experience to practice using pen tools and developed strategies that where I starting to create a line properly.
Because I am interested in this project, I would try again 🙂
