Need everyone's input!!

Postby Delight » Mon Sep 05, 2011 2:59 pm

Hello to all the HOFS out there! I have decided to get more involved on the board and take on some volunteer work for designing new artwork for the NFSA store and T-shirts for next years NFSA conference! I would LOVE to have everyone's input for what kind of artwork they would like to see! If you have any cute ideas that you would like to be brought into reality please list them here. I am open to everything. I do mainly fantasy artwork but I love to do animals too! So this will be a good oportunity for me to excersize my skills! Thanks!

I have been thinking of some ideas and have a couple of thoughts to share.

* I love symbols/logos so I was thinking maybe you could create a shadow/shape of a sfs that would be all black and then inside have a colored red heart or have the heart cut-out? You could put this logo on top of the state where the conference is to be held, put it on coffee mugs, t'shirts ect...

* Unless it is some where obvious and I am blind or not had enough coffee...I had a hard time finding the link to the cafe press store. Maybe it could be put some where obvious this on the front of the website or even give it's own link/forum?

* What about key chains? Zipper pulls? Socks?

See if you can post some of your drawings so people can see how good you are. :D

OMG...I love your artistic talent! I especially love the sugar glider peices.

I bet you could do a very awesome tribal flyer!

Oh I will leave the details to you ;) I bet you could do some wicked awesome drawings of various sorts.

I just love the idea of a flyer symbol with a heart inside. I could see my self wearing a t-shirt or hoodie with this symbol.

I used to breed gliders so I also have quite the soft spot for them :lover:
I miss my gliders but don't miss their stinky smell! Those boys can sure sent mark up a house in no time! Love the fliers cause they have litterally no odor as long as their cage stays clean - and they don't throw fruit all over the walls!!

I worked on this a little bit tonight, I do not have a scanner here (it's at my mom's) or any good pens to do anymore than the outline sketch BUT let me know what you think and if it's liked I will progress with it in photoshop when I scan it into the computer at my mom's house. I am thinking black on the top, white on the bottom and a red heart in the middle. Image

I had to do it split black/white because when I was trying to draw something that would be all black it was too difficult to not just have it look like a little black blob LMAO so I decided it needed a bit more detail :roll:

I love it so far! You could also do another variation of this design with the squirrel in flying mode and place the heart inside his chest cavatiy? You are so very talented!

Because I don't have a scanner I had to re-draw the whole thing in photoshop tracing the picture I took with my cell phone. I really need to invest in a digital pen so that my lines come out smoother, it's a pain in the butt to use the computer mouse.

I took this image and re-did it using a higher resolution and a different program. It looks much cleaner now.
