Adaptation B: Library Thumbnails

In my tutorial I was told that drawing isn't getting me anywhere and instead was told to use photographs of the objects I would like in my environment and edit them using the tools and filters available to me in Photoshop to create an engaging, detailed concept. Still using a limited colour palette, here are the thumbnails I created using this method. The first image is the concept with the photographs original colours.

Adaptation B: Thumbnail Colour Experiments

After my interim crit I was told I should be more bold and pulpy with my designs. Here are some colour experiments I did using only 5 colours in each piece. I was told to start of using an original image from one of my influence maps and then paint colours straight over the top. I added the line art at the end of each piece to make it more defined and look more like Scooby-Doo. I am very pleased with how these turned out, the next stage is to transfer this methodology into my own designs.
