Using Adobe Illustrator, I designed a drop cap for the letter ‘S’. This drop cap doesn’t just represent my last name, but the whole of my career as an artist.
My ongoing personal project is a comic about fauns, and my color pallet is usually limited to browns with few splashes of colors. For these reasons I ultimately landed on this design.
After creating the initial vector art, I animated the gif using Adobe Photoshop. I researched effective ways to create animation smears, which led to several failed attempts. In the end, I found the least complicated method worked the best for my skill and deadline.
