Captain of my soul

I decided to start with a quote by William Ernest Henley "I am the master of my fate, captain of my soul". I feel these are words that ring true to my heart, its a bit long but I really like it.

  • For my mood board:  I went ahead and looked up images that to me conveyed the visuals of the quote after doing the word brain storm, I decided to look up some sailing boats, some colors for my final and some lettering.

  • I chose the word "Captain" as my maine word to start the exercise, as you will see I even spelled it wrong right from the beginning :) 


  • Following some simple thumbnails to get me warmed up - still very much a beginner I kept thinking how in the world am I going to get this to work!?


  • Not giving up and keeping at it with my mood board close by + the teachers examples :) (Which were very helpful so THANK YOU!) I decided to add some of the elements like a captain hat or a life saver, boat, some rope and I was getting much more happier with my results, so far I like the 2nd and third from the top to flush out into a tighter sketch.

          And of course I am open to any advice suggestions. :)
