Added a blush line & Rough Pastels Filter:
I decided on using this photo bug use it was the “logo” of my page from last year bur i had always needed to be touched up a little more than I had already done before, so I set out on a mission to touch up the image and change its art style and I feel that I did just that…
From “DAY: 5; Thursday” post.
I also practiced some of what I learned from the chapter on an image that I’ve been using for my background on the main monitor.
I picked this image of Aoba Suzukaze from the new show NEW GAME! because it was kind of a funny picture that is extreme well drawn, and i wanted to add a little something extra to it.
Work In Progress:
This screen shot was taken after I converted the Text “NEW GAME!” into a path layer and I was playing around with the colors.
Finalized Image With 3D Text:
This screen shot was taken after I converted the text path into 3D Text, than colored it Purple-ish/Pink-ish color and light blue.
Today I started on a poster design based on a major event; the first Arc Genesis Gate opening from me novel.
For this design I used only the Line Segment Tool, The Shape tool, and the Black Arrow tool.
2nd stage of the design:
This Is were I started to add The Stars Of Fate the keys to opening the Arc Genesis Gate.
Progress thus far:
This is were I added color to be able to tell different objects apart from each other.
I Will Be Working A lot n this Image In the future, and I hope to complete it soon…
Today I Worked More on the illustration for my novel…
In this image I added the rest of the stone bricks used for the floor design, I also added a picture of mahogany to the two pillars on the sides so is looks more realistic.
Arc-Genesis Gate 2 parts, I went and copied the blue section of the gate, and pasted it into the red gate so it wouldn’t have a huge hole in the middle of it.
Nest I changed the stroke weight of the two halves of the gate, as well as made the Key Stones smaller, than added a drop shadow to them and the gate.
Next I added a black stone image behind the bricks to gat that realistic vibe.
Here is wear I darkened up the drop shadow and made it more pronounced.
Finally I added a Colored pencil photoshop effect to almost everything.
I am almost done with my poster, I added a quote that was said by my novels antagonist before his death…
For this I the used text tool, and two drop shadows to make this bloody effect.
Today I made a poster design passed off of my novel.
For this poster I used the outlines of Ann Fang and Mavray Grim two of the four long dead kings of blood who survived the massacre 100 years before the start of the book…
Mainly used the pen tool to create this outlined design, ass well as the live paint tool, and the text tool.
Today Lynda.com was down, so I worked on a project of my choosing, than I went to CC and took a pre test…
Arc White Rain (Shadows Twin Brother)
Im not at all done with this image, but I did at least get his extra long hair formed, though I will need to take some time to work on this image. for this I used the pen tool and one of the already done outlines.
Missy Davis (Mavray Grim)
For this image I took the outline of here from my last poster and got rid of the fill…this is a illustration of her for the character card in the front of the book.
Missy Davis/Marry Grim
For the Character Page that I am working on for my light novel I am starting out with the character page of Missy Davis Arc-Age’s Crowned Mascot/also know to the people of Arc-Age as the Vampiric King Mavray Grim the Puppet Master…
At this point in the image I added the red to her tie that changes color depending on if she’s Missy (Pink) or Mavray (Red); I also added shadow to the Black Brass buttons on her jacket, and the glowing Crest of the city of Arc-Age behind her, I cheated the glow using drop shadows, the tie coloration, button coloration, & the Girls Arc-Shool Shot uniform badge on her jacket using different gradients.
Next I started to add the background in so as to gat a feel for the lighting conditions;
I also added a steal plate and bolts behind the crest to add more feeling to its design.
And finally for the day I added a offset copy behind the steel plate so it looked more industrial.
Note From The Novels Author Aura Rune:
“The Split down the middle of Arc_Age’s Crest Relates to how the original Mavray Davis was executed, it was during colosseum fight, and she was spit in to by a large crude Axe right down the middle, after surviving 100+ fights two each day, what a way to go…”
Today Worked some more on the character page for Missy Davis\Mavray Grim…
Hair and jacket:
I did A LOT of detaining on her long hair that was created using the pen tool and line segment tool…
Today I worked on the same project as the last project day…
Greadent added to the real plate, and texture added to the jacket sweeter thing:
Longer skirt added, a clipping mask was used for this design and for the jacket in the image above.
I Decided to add different texture to the image to add in designs that I eat could not draw on my own, and/or because is is easer than having to draw them by hand…
Todays final image:
Today I nearly finished the Character card that Ive been working on…
The Hooked Boots and gold laces were mad using the pen too and line segment tools…
Next I aded in some color to the background and fixed the holes that I had added in to the background.
I printed off a copy of this last version (above) with printers marks added, so i can do a sketch of the image and get a good idea for the face, witch I will probably draw over in photoshop…
Today I worked some more on the same project as last week…
For this step in my illustration process i used photoshop to draw some of the major details. I used the brush tool to draw the eyes and mouth.
Final Work Day for Mavray Grim character card…
Today I finished the character card project that I have been working on as of late…
Over in photoshop I got a good sense of what the mouth would look like.
Than I went back into illustrator and add the final details using the pen too, and drop shadow effect.
Next I plan to work on the main characters character card.
*EDITED IN ON October 10, 2016 at 9:56 A.M.* I might add a few most details to this image if my art style for these characters change…
Today I finally made a background art for my YouTube Channel…
Link: Aura Rune
I used the skills I turned in yesterdays lesson from Ch. 20
I used the Rectangle tool create the background design…
All it took was one square, the transform effect, and a gradient…
My Channel name is made up of two copies of the same text with the text behind text colored black to give it more depth.
The Rune symbols it two circles, one large and one smaller plus a bunch of some what randomly placed magenta lines…
The final part is the eye witch was really hard to create…
Its meant to look more like a wolfs eye but no matter what it looks like…it an eye…
I touched up the detailing on the eye a bit I think it looks good…

For this project I used the brush tool, and the eraser tool.

As you can see I brightened up some of the coloration, and added the other sleeve, It would have probably never been added had I not noticed that I forgot to sketch it originally.

I am loosely basing the design off of Vascar Fontana from the Sunrider VN series.
I also started work on a comic that Ive been wanting to do for a while now
This is areal rough start, but it will get better, It will be done in color, instead of B/W, because color is much easer to do.

Today I created and finished the logo for -Rune Media-
Today I finished the -Rune Media- poster and a Retro Game Nite Poster for the Gamerz Club:
-Rune Media- poster
For this poster I put time into designing each section based on the color scheam of each members YouTube Icon, and color preference.
As you can tell I also added a mockup YouTube play button at the bottom on the poster.
The colored part at the top is meant to be a place were many different YouTubers can join our group, then have there name and color added to the top.

This was meant to be a more simple design but it is still meant to citing to the club and the event.
