Thanks for your patience Clinkers! The 2014 baseball season is about to start and things are pretty nuts around here trying to help our teams get everything ready. But lets dive into a long overdue Designed By Clinkers round.
Blake! I love this concept and the execution. Very clean, ver beautiful. I messed with some of the colors to make it pop. I think a metallic blue thread on that fish would really bring it to life. I love it! One-n-done!
Mike! What a badass interpretation of Kong! I love how you simplify him. You’ll see that I added a background element toe the pencil to bring it together. My only issue is Kong’s left hand. He’s waving at us here, which is cool. But it seems like a wasted opportunity for something. A thumbs up? A “we’re number one” finger perhaps? Not sure what’s the best story to tell with that left hand. Thoughts from Clinkers? But seriously that simplified Kong head is a stroke of genius.
Aussie Ry! Love this guy. The design is wonderful. I have 2 changes. I like the closed eye version but he needs to have a bigger smile on that face. Only a gigantic smile would cause the eyes to pucker up like that. Also the raccoon tail could use a few more bands. to make it stand out a bit more. Other than that it’s great. The best part? His inspiration boards. Check out those bad mamajamas.
