DITB needed an advertisement banner illustrating the girl on the left
and a drac-in-a-box on the right. It's a fairly simplistic animation,
but it's eye catching- and that's what matters most. The original image
size was 4MB, but managed to get it down to 67KB for web use, hence
the low 30 colour quality.
Dracinabox.com banner girl (inked)
The original character drawing of the girl was a lot bigger, but was
kept simple and I allowed for cropping of the top and bottom parts of
the image. She's evolved since my first interpretation, but in a good
way. I think she's prettier, but as far as some Goths are concerned,
I dunno if that's a good thing or bad!
Dracinabox.com banner colour props
All the props for the banner were made separately and animated in Adobe
Image Ready. The box was constructed purely in PhotoShop and I'm glad
I didn't keep it freehand! I chose to go for an anime cel style colour
job since it shows up better on banners and allows for more colour gif
Dracinabox.com banner (pencil concept)
Well this is how is started. The main change from this original was
the font- this concept was designed for a different set of dimensions
and after then being instructed to then add the words "Gothic Clothing"
underneath, it had to change to a pre-made font. It's probably better
off that way. I just realised I missed out the girl's right hand thumb!
Let's hope no-one notices ^_~
