Blackjack: RIGHTS: Behind the Scenes! Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Alexander Simmons is back at it again. In collaboration with partner Chris Ryan these cats decided to do a story about AMERICA, what it means to be AMERICAN, and the Blackjack drama that all that entails. I was asked to contribute visuals for this project and went through different iterations.
Design Brief: The brief was very basic in providing descriptive keywords.
Rough: Sometimes the visuals come immediately. So the basic layout was done very quickly.
Pose Variants: Of course once I got far enough in the design I had to choose the best pose for Arron Day aka ‘Blackjack. Did we want the 1. I double dare you to make a move. 2. i’m gonna shoot first variant. 3. Guns blazing variant, We choose variant 1.
Reference Photos: Hey, the Internets Rocks:-)
Final: A bit of Photoshop and Manga Studio and ‘Voila. I’m a huge proponent of integrating typography with images so its was just a matter of a few tweaks.
Very PROUD, once again, to be affiliated with the works of Simmons and Ryan and BLACKJACK.
