WIP- What do you see?


What do you see here? I want a very simplistic design But I feel like it is too abstract. Would more detail be better?



Here is an outline version so You can see what I'm trying to draw.

I wouldn't say it's too abstract, I think you got something going. Maybe you could try adding thin black lines on areas that show shading? And were you going to do all white?

I like the minimalist idea but I couldn't tell what it was until looking at the second image.

I was reminded of Raiden with the first image due to the partial rice paddy hat looking shape and the other lightning bolt looking shapes. But at the same time, I didn't actually see a person.. just a bunch of strange shapes.

Work more those lights (maybe including a second color) also add a dim (or lighter) backlight. It helps with legibility.

@arthurlucena the word legibility refers only to text... now I'm THAT guy.

AnthonyMoore

Yeah, I thought Raiden as well. The mouth looks like the eye and his right shoulder line looks like the mouth.. if that makes sense. And I saw the highlight on the left shoulder as a fist coming at me.

The 2 Color thing actually looks much cooler then I imagined.

personally i think you are going to have to work a hell of a lot harder to get this accepted for voting, and even then it will probably tank in voting. is it beautiful/ clever/ brilliant/ funny/ gorgeous? nope. have a look at the kinds of designs that have printed for inspiration.

I'm so glad you told me this. (can you hear my sarcasm?)

It would look a lot better if the hair was more animeish I think. Sorry but I don't really see the hair in the 'hair' right now. d: And that blade handle would look good too if you painted it in too. Maybe block in a third neutral color, not destroying the current red/white contrast, to define more of the portrayed character?

Reizake

I think this is the final copy. Any obvious problems or small tweaks needed?

How is the positioning on the shirt?

I like the idea and concept but it's heavily lacking a proficient execution

ManuinMotion

The idea is nice, but I find the white spot of the hat very... massy. I don't know, but the attention goes to the great white masses instead of the whole design.
