Now Playing Tracks

Here are the rest of my pages but not all, as every thumbnail in my animation gallery and illustration gallery leads to a full size page with illustration or video…the “tumblr” and “Facebook” buttons in my contact page have been made my me, and they also work :)…..the buttons shine when you go over them…

so over all i am fairly happy with outcome…if i could do it again i wouldn’t scalpel (in photoshop for web purpose) every single button and thumbnail as i did, but done everything on one page then save for web purpose and i would be much happier man…oh well you learn something every day…

So here is my home web page… creating it i thought of the things i enjoy; night, moon etc…and hopefully i keeper it simple…all of the buttons going to be linked with appropriate site and back..

Although I seem to sketch out only home page i also think about the other sides of my web…so the ideas for home page might end up as gallery page or about page…

Explain the difference between an illustrators website and a technical information website:

All of the 4 websites I have talked about previously (both the 2 I like and the 2 I don’t enjoy) are more of an Illustrators web, however Disney may be more technical site I think…. 

Any ways the main difference I would say would be that Illustrator/ Animator web site will contain more of images/ personal work of an artist and only handful of text (compared to the technical site which for example is definitely HMRevenue web, where you will not find many pictures-the only ones that are there, will be the free pictures from free pictures webs).

So animator/ illustrator will add lot of images / videos to their web to show of their style /skill so that potential client will be able to decide whether or not that is what he/she require for their needs. In case client will come to a reason that “yes, this is the artist I need” then they are able to use contact details of an artist that will be included at their web; and perhaps client will want to know a little bit more about artist so there most Illustrators /Animators include their Bio with few words about them self…

Where as on Tech web site you’ll see much more writing; such webs was made just in the simple “rocky /edgy/ non- stylize way (just because no body cares how pretty will be the site where they are going to read about how much tax they will pay, no…on the other hand artists web will be stylize so its even more persuasive for the potential client, to choose service of an artist…..

Here is something a little bit digressing from digital image 2, however not by much I think.

for my third assignment in visualisation 2, I have been told to create character modelled on to metal armature. So here it is … 

Its first version…so it’s not even fully finished and bit crap in some places….but ill fix it soon :D for now I hope you all will enjoy this one :)..

So here are the two web sited that I hate for their layout. Or may be “Josh Sheppard” one I only don’t like, where as the Disney web is full of commercials  and it looks like somebody gave little kid some colourful pastels and a peace of white paper- everything will be colourful/crowded in the end and there won’t be any free space- saying even more it looks like badly decorated christmas tree…

Here on the other hand are two examples of the web design and layout that I absolutely LOVE; I mean you have everything you need and its still “clean”, you are able to read everything without straining your eyes, as well as following the web just couldn’t be easier….oh wait there always is an easier way with big FAT letters and Arrows, however those I think should be used at sites like Direct.gov or HMRevenue because everybody just loose them selfs there sooner or later…

So any way first web belongs to Luis de Royo, one of my favourite fantasy Illustrators/artists due to his uncial, full of desirable darkness paintings, as well as apocalyptic imagery of fantasy worlds of which I am really a HUGE fan of.

His web (above) its like corridor in which there are 6 doors and each leads to different part of Royo world; from his blog to shop where you can buy one of his many books or paintings.

Then there is second web. This time it belongs to PIXAR, even though it been created by a man that loved Disney (and so Pixar meant to be like sister studio -or daughter even), it became much more mature more…just way more Disney is with his omnipresent pinky lovey-dovey colour that instead of cheering or I don’t know “warming my heart” it just make me want to throw up; don’t get me wrong there are some nice movies by Disney but loot of them are just too much..

Returning to Pixar; even though it came lets say “womb” of Disney it is…just like its web site: simple, function able, but even so there is exactly everything there to let you fall in love with it without “giving back your lunch”… 

The FINAL ASSIGNMENT !! WeB Promotion :)

So in this assignment we was asked to make our own online gallery to promote and present our art work/ illustrations/ animations.

It must be a simple design, keeping our work under the theatre spotlights (in the other words our work = V important and rest not so much).

To get an idea of how I’ll design my web page I must first look at 2 sites I like and 2 I don’t like, explaining why. I also need to explain why a website for illustrators is different from sites of technical info.

We make Tumblr themes
