A gift for a giver, extremely limited edition of 1 by chrismandesign / my first bloggy experience






It’s been a long time, since a dear colleague from Singapore had a kind gesture of generosity, sending me a group of gashapons very rare, even in his country, not to mention that they are virtually impossible to get here... 


I told him that I would try to match his kindness somehow...

Well, this is what I did, something product of my own mind and made with my own hands; not so much, but it was made gladly so I think it’s worth while anyway =D... 


It took me some days, from the initial sketch to the final result and I decided to show the main steps of the process. 

The first is the scanner of the pencil sketch inked without any modification, the second is the same sketch with enhanced contrast, the third image is the final result with digital color and the fourth has a paint effect to give it another feeling, something subtle.

As i said somewhere, I’m not a professional illustrator but I have some drawing skills (at least, I think so) and i liked to draw a lot of things, before I became a professional graphic designer... 


Finally, Dennis a.k.a. Katsuden, if you want this gift, just send me an e-mail (you already have mine) and I will send back this illustration in a medium or high resolution file (if you want to print it) or if you give me the size of your screen, I could send something to fit as a wallpaper... I will be waiting =)... 

Next week, if GOD allows, more toys =D

THX mr. Yasser, but i hav no plans to change my blogger template (that is indeed, slightly personalized cuz i applied my skills as web designer) for some important reasons:
1. I selected carefully the colour gama, according with the "corporative" image i designed for my blog & bearing in mind the easiness & confort in the readability of the contents.
2. I saw other nice blogger templates, but usually they violate the speed of download, making slower ur blog & hurting ur ranking in the search engines.
3. THX GOD i hav many visitors dialy (100 or more) with my simple, great & effective blogger design... so, as u can see i know what i’m doing... =D
