One of the many reasons I’m a part of Robotface is that we can all challenge each other and provide feedback. We occasionally put out monthly challenges and we set out to each do the Zodiac for the year. My personal growth goal was to play a lot more with color and character design. My character silhouettes had all started to feel a bit same-y same-y so working with monsters was a nice way to break out of that.
To help with the color choices we used coolors.co to pick palettes based on the birthstone of the month that the Zodiac symbol represented – more or less. It’s an amazing tool to help you get unstuck in a sea of colorful options. All the pieces were done in Procreate, as usual, using a variety of brushes.
I’m really happy with them (Aquarius is a bit rough.) Bishop said that they reminded him of Personas from Persona, which is now an anime I’ll need to watch.
On a website note: the gallery block in the Gutenberg isn’t too bad! I need to dig up an overlay option or something similar I think. And those caption styles need some work.
