Subject: Re: [MA-SOC] Metro Anime merchandise contest?



This is a rough so its hardly finished.  So proportion comments aside:

http://www.kohr.tv/metrogirl_v1.jpg

First off some comments.  I like the idea of having 3 logos, one a
girl, a guy and a robot.  I was thinking of the copy deck being "Metro
Anime" "boys * girls * robots"  Just to be strange.  Also from a design
standpoint i want to stay away from "fan service" and make all three of
the shirts palatable to all.  With that I have done the girl.  The box
would be a rounded color box and the coloring muted.  I guess the
closest style I want them to equate to (at least the girl) is Ragna
Murata's works.  Though I also want it to be a little in my style, to
give it a uniqueness.  I will start the boy sketch tomorrow.

Best :D

Rob
