|My newest deviantions...is subject to change at any given moment.|
My name is Missaquaitaine, but I imagine that's a bit of a tongue-twister, so you can call me Missy if you prefer.
Ever since I was very young, I would always be drawing.
Thus, it became a hobby, and a passion, of mine to create whatever was in my head onto the paper. More recently though this has also translated into writing, although that's quite infrequent and often stays up in my head most of the time.
I work in traditional mediums, mostly because I was raised on them. So, I very rarely deviate,  from said materials.
Oh, I guess it would also help if I would tell you about myself a little more.
In a nutshell, I'm a happy bubbly person with too many ideas and not enough time to jot them all down. Asides from art I like to read, listen to music, and spend time with friends and family. I also don't mind a good chat with people on the net, so please know I do not bite! Ha ha.
Asides from the above, have a fabulous day and stay creative!
My First CG-Animated Character Design!So a few months ago the good people at Sunrise Productions commissioned me to do some character designs for one of their adverts, a cute short for the Italian Juventus football league. I had never done character work for CG animation before then, so you can imagine I was a ball of nerves. I had absolutely no clue whether my designs would even translate to 3D at all, and here they were asking me to also take care of the T-pose drawings for the modelers to use! Yikes!
Luckily, everything went down incredibly smoothly and I learned a lot about CG animation. (I think everyone knows by now I'm a 2D nut, so I'm a blank page when it comes to CG.) Though, seriously now, I'm massively pleased with the end result. Sunrise's website is a bit outdated, so I didn't expect this calibre of work at all. This is definitely a short I'm proud to have played my small part in.
The short's up now so you guys can ch
How to Design a Logo, Step by Step Guide.Chapter 1 - From the start
When we design a logo, we are fulfilling a need for an identity, because people think in images, not words. For example if you read “banana” on a sign, you don't think of the actual letters that form the word “banana”, you think of the fruit, you form the image in your head. That's what we want when we make a logo.
The following are features every good logo should have:
Easy to adjust. This means it has to be understandable in both small and big scale.
Charming. Once you see it you won't forget it, even if you didn't understand what it meant, you will still think about it.
Readability. It should be easy to read at any size and in any color, and shouldn't leave room for misinterpretation.
Easy to comprehend. You have to know what service or product it offers when you look at it.
Authentic. The design must not mislead the observer to believe something it's not.
