Illustrating a Series of Nintendo Badges

Introduction

I decided that i'm going to be working on a series of badges featuring some of my favourite Nintendo characters. I've always respected the work Nintendo puts into developing their games, so I hope to capture even a fraction of that passion in this set. As a newbie designer, I look forward to learning a lot from this project.

SECTION 1 - BUILDING IDEAS

MINDMAP:

- Mind map was actually a really useful concept to help your mind flow. I was able to generate a lot of ideas in a short period of time. I decided on using a couple of characters/franchises and on a mysterious, dark mood for the series.

 

SKETCHES:

- I tried to capture the most distinctive features of the characters in these sketches. I also sketched some photos of familiar landscape in the games.

- I tried to sketch by picturing each part of the character and then reverse engineering towards a common shape.

SECTION 2 - BUILDING CONSISTENCY

Moodboard:

I was looking at badges and illustrations that used a variety of different colours but still managed to maintain a consistent theme either through shape, colour or overarching concept.

SECTION 3 - BUILDING A SERIES


Going to work on adding more detail.
