An elegant male in an urban adventure setting to illustrate our brand identity.
I] Drawings instructions:
One drawing to illustrate Antlion’s adventures in an urban setting
The male’s style and personality are described in the attached brand character document (it is important to grasp our identity before drawing)
Artilion is crossing two skyscrapers walking on a cable. He carries two travel bags for balance.
Our inspiration comes from the movie The Walk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKSeSX-dzso.
Pictures from the movie do not need to be followed strictly. Most importantly the reader should feel:
1) A sense of adventure/thrill/risk yet in all elegance. The work on perspective is important here to ensure that feel of thrill and risk. This will be a key part of the evaluation process.
2) Bags are playing a key companion role during the action. It should feel like the bags are helping the adventurer keep balance as he walks.
3) We are in a modern urban setting
4) The man walking on the cable is dressed elegantly. For dressing style you may get some inspiration with the home page drawings of http://www.loropiana.com (specifically the ones in Tokyo, Shanghai, New York and Rome). Caution, the rest of the drawing style here is not correct (looks too classic, not modern and enough action packed)
II] Drawing Style:
Drawing should be realistic enough so the reader has a reason to believe the situation could be a true story. But it should not be too close to a photography that would leave no space to dreaming. Drawing style should be adult, modern, elegant and charismatic (ref attached “OK”examples. We do not want drawings that look too “smooth” (ref one attached “NOT OK” example)
Bags however should be drawn in a much more realistic way, i.e. close to photography. Bag preferred colors: dark red, dark blue or dark green.
