One of my favourite games in Fallout: New Vegas by Bethesda. The Tops casino is central to the storyline of the game.
The Rad Pack at the Tops Casino is believe is based on the Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Buddy Greco.
I really do enjoy their type of music, so much so that I was listening to them whilst creating the moodboard. I retained the 60s theme as well as the Fallout game series too. The motto of the Tops Casino is “You’ll dig us baby, we’re the tops!” Any feedback or constructive critiscism is welcome.

The universe is in great peril!

This is my second submission of video game posters.

“Long live the great and glorious mother brain!’

I only used tutorials to get the texture for this one which I’m proud of.

the poster is done in the style of a Chinese propaganda poster. The sunburst is certainly eye catching and its simplicity in only using two colours, and black and white. I used Adobe Illustrator to create the black and white mother brain and metroids, also the red sunburst. I placed them all in Adobe Photoshop and applied the textures and filters. The only thing I could criticise is the border chops off the metroids teeth at the bottom, adding a red or white circle to the mother brains eye would tie it in nicely with the metroids white eyes. Feedback welcome. Enjoy!

Saviour of the Universe

On Monday ( a few weeks back ), I took the time to travel to Brisbane and see Queen + Adam Lambert Live in Concert, which was epic! This got me listening to their music again and I was reminded how they did a song for the movie Flash Gordon ( which was an epic movie). So, today I made some time to create a flat image poster for the movie.

The body pose is based on He-man ( Stephen Hawking has a better chance at painting the Mona Lisa than I do at drawing a stick figure ) and the type is Futura, which I thought was appropriate seeing as the movie is a bit psuedo-futuristic, dodging lasers, star trek style space ships and a wardrobe that could compete and win against star wars. I place the image on a free poster mock-up through Adobe Creative Cloud, designed by Mike Delsing. Now that I see it, his pants could be a darker shade of blue to stand out from the background and adding ‘saviour of the universe’ at the bottom centre in a script font would give the viewer an answer as to why he’s standing on a strange world wielding a sword in a power pose. Constructive feedback is welcome; I hope you enjoy.

Logo Design

A while back a friend asked me to design a logo for her dog breeding company she started up. She had three Rhodesian Ridgebacks and they’ve won quite a few show medals. Unfortunately she couldn’t use this logo for reasons not of my own. So I’ll post them here for you to enjoy and view my process of how I achieved the final outcome. enjoy!

Blessed are the coffee makers

One of the first designs I did just for fun, when I first started my course. I love coffee plus there’s a line in Monty Python’s Life of Brian, “I think he said blessed are the cheese makers”. I found it funny so I put my own twist on it. Everyone that has their morning cup of coffee should feel blessed to start the day off in such a way. The first photo are my ideas I drew in my A5 notebook and the second is the final background that was made when I first started using Illustrator. At some stage I may finalize Saint Barista. Feedback welcome. Enjoy!
