ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY | ONOMATOPOEIA


Using: Pencil Crayons and Tech Pen.

ILLUSTRATION TECHNIQUES | NEW BEVERAGE FLAVOUR

This is one of my projects I did rendering a new flavor of a beverage retailed in a 355mL can. Considering the limited visual field of the images and text as well as thinking about how it will wrap around a cylindrical form. I chose an existing company and made sure that the logo and the typeface was exact. (However this project was not intended for the beverage company itself) Markers were used in this project as well as the mortising technique. Mortising is when you render the background with out leaving room for your illustration and then glue your illustration, which is on another piece of paper on top of the background. Then you cut around the illustration making sure the bottom background is also being cut. You remove the top illustration as well as the bottom background paper and re-glue the illustration.

My first step was to gather a variety of different canned beverage. I found actual cans and examples of cans on the internet. I even searched for some of the cans around the world and different types of fruit and vegetables. I selected some as a source of inspiration and used them as a reference for harmony, composition, and typeface.

I then sketched thumbnails the different layout designs, techniques, and flavors.

I selected two of my ideas and made a linear comprehensive on white bond paper. I sketched a larger version of my thumbnail with a pencil then I went over with a tech pen. 






It was quite tough to work with markers for the Pepsi label since the new Pepsi logo was so small and the typeface was very thin. I kept exploring with shading techniques and I also tried a splatter technique on the first one using a household cleaning product since I thought it would cause the marker to separate and look like bubbles. I chose the Fanta design as my final since it was my favorite one because the composition was nice and the colors really made the design pop and stand out.














This was my final design!

Thank you for reading! 

Products I used: Prismacolor Markers, Graphite pencils, White bond paper, Marker-rendering paper pad 
(for the comprehensives and Final artwork), Heavy/thick board (for mounting/backing the Final artwork), Glue, Tape, and Scissors.
