Win The Trophy Avatars

These are some Avatars that I designed for Win The Trophy about a couple of years ago. Since I've got a Characters section on my website now, I decided to add them to that portfolio.

Shrimp Sketches 2

So waaaaaay back in June I posted some sketches that I did for a freelance project, I was doing, in which I was designing a shrimp mascot for a clothing line.  Anyway, I did quite a number of sketches to get the look of the shrimp down.  This is the last three rounds of sketches.
With these five sketches I was attempting to make the shrimp have more of a cooked shrimp shape, based on the request of the client.

 The cooked shrimp idea was the right direction but it needed to be a little more stylized. It needed to be a little simpler too, so that it would work well on clothing.  The client decided that they liked the one with the Popeye style arms but wanted me to work on improving the face a bit.
So, I came up with these final five designs and both myself and the client agreed that #1 was the best.

Next time I will post the final Illustration of the Jumbo Shrimp.

Eustace Consulting: Anna

I Just recently finished a brand new character for Eustace Consulting based on their newest team member, Anna. You may or may not have seen the previous set of characters Right here. This illustration is, of course, done with the more detailed rendering much like the previous characters. I'm definitely getting more comfortable with that style now. It also helps that I've upgraded my version of Adobe Illustrator which allows for transparencies on gradients and therefor makes blending them together, much easier.

All New Jeff Morin Art

Hey folks! It's been a while since I've written any new posts. Sorry about that.  I've been rather busy moving into a new place and then totally revamping . That's right, I redid my whole website from the ground up.  I decided to get with the 21st century so I'm now using a nice little content management system called Get Simple which looks really nice and modern.  It's now much easier to get around my site and much easier for me to upload new content.  Also, I've added some new artwork and portfolios.  Each of the portfolios has a nice little image gallery, slide show feature.

I'm pretty excited about it and I'm even thinking about adding some other content to the site, like for instance, a process section or a tour of my studio.  I've got lots of ideas but they'll have to wait for the not-to-distant future.  For now, I'd like to move on to other projects.

So, I invite you to come take a look at my newly remodeled website.  And maybe you've got the need for some custom cartoon artwork, don't hesitate to contact me because I'm the man for the job! But you don't have to take my word for it, come take a look!
