Summer Time ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡ and Small Projects

 

Summer is here and I’ve been busy with a few small projects. I keep progressing with one and then starting a new one; here I have a few game assets I’ve designed in Illustrator. I think it’s going quite well, I may add a few more icons like coins and some girly sword designs.

I’ve also started a project for my portfolio based on the recent film Ghost In The Shell. The film inspired me soo much, I have an image in my head of what I want to design, but it’s not coming out the way I planned so it’s taking me a while. My idea is just a bunch of icons and conceptual drawings based on the film. My other project is an idea for a mobile game app I’d like to add to my portfolio.

I’ve been looking at a lot of UI artists portfolios and I feel like I need to improve so much, there’s always competition but I know I can do it.

Once again, it’s been a while since my last update! I’m so sorry, I really mean it. Lately I’ve been going through some ‘stuff’ ( ˃̣̣̥ω˂̣̣̥ ) … mentally I was in a dark place where I almost gave up on myself and my artwork ‘again’. I didn’t want to talk to anyone, I had no energy and no motivation to do absolutely anything; I was being negative about everything and I really put myself down.

My boyfriend always stands by me and has helped me through this. I don’t want to go back to that dark place again, EVER!… I now feel motivated and determined to focus on what I love. I want to move forward and I will move forward.

My mantra “To fail is to succeed, we struggle, we learn, we conquer.”

I finally finished my sword icons. I changed quite a bit of it, I decided not to include the shield; I was becoming too fixated on making it perfect and ended up spending way too much time on just that.

You can check out these cute weapons up close here –> Behance I hope you like them, feel free to comment/criticize. I’m always up for improving my skills.

✧ Weapons Update ✧

Really happy with the way my weapon icons are coming along. I can see my Illustrator skills improving drastically (⌯⌅⌄⌅) …there’s still a lot I think I need to learn about Illustrator, but so far progress is looking good in my opinion. I decided to make a few changes to some of my designs, hopefully I can work with them better.
