It was more interesting work than previous project. I chose the Jaguars team logo because it looked clean, and color matching was also fancy. However, when I analyzed this logo before start work, I realized that every color piece must have color gradations. Anyway, it was a new challenge to use many functions in the illustrator, so I start the work.
For this reason, I planned several process for this work that outlining with black color, base coloring and detailed coloring with shadow effect and color gradation effect.
1) Outlining with black color
The first process was so simple, just drew outlines and some black parts. However, the outlining must be accurate.
2) Base coloring
The second process was a bit complex because I had to distinguished the border of between each color shape. First, I painted the texts and panel. The texts looks 3-dimensional effect because of the color, and they involves varied gradations for the effect. Therefore, the work to distinguish each shape exacted very careful attention. (First time, I didn’t divided so exact, so I needed extra work when I painted the gradations..)
Anyway, base coloring was done! 🙂
3) detailed coloring with shadow effect and color gradation effect.
Painting gradation work made me exhausted but was fun. Gradation effects made my work splendid that I expected. Unfortunately, I made some mistakes when I painted the texts that I didn’t delicately divide the border of each color shape, so I re-divided and painted all color shapes for the text parts. 😦
Painting shadow was simple, I just created several black shapes and gave proper opacity(less than 70%) to them.
Finally, I painted all color shapes with gradation effect.
