I gave did a little drawing of this, I thought it was a really cool photograph. From th1nkPhotography.
So, my brother has asked me to paint something on his wall.
Initially he just wanted Marvel characters, but then he decided he wanted to have some Mortal Kombat characters too.
It has now progressed to Mortal Kombat versus Marvel characters.
Anyway, I’ve created a few mock ups of the scene.
NOTE: I just got images of the characters from google so that I could work out their placement, rather than sketching them all out in photoshop since I’d be moving them around and wasn’t sure which characters Aaron wanted me to use.
He decided that he wanted the background to be changed as it wouldn’t go with the rest of his room, and also, that Raiden should be lowered to the ground.
This was just another possible idea that I had, of using half the board as Marvel and the other as Mortal Kombat, but he preferred the other format. It is also important to note, his wall is basically a square, so I’m going to need to take that into account. Trying to squeeze so much detail into the space, with each character’s face could end up being a disaster, so we ditched that.
This is the final image. This should be what I end up painting it onto the wall, but he may end up changing his mind, who knows.
He initially wanted to get rid of Spiderman altogether, but then I pointed out that it would end up with six MK characters. So then he wanted to get rid of Kitana, since it would reduce the amount of blue. Instead, I lowered Spidey so that he wasn’t swinging in the breeze, and added in Mileena instead. I did offer to put Jade in, but he wanted the pink one.
After seeing how well Sorcha’s font turned out, I decided to create my own.
I had a little free time on my hands and used the typography experiment that I created as the font.
So, not sure where to start I youtube it and found the video below very helpful.
It was uploaded for years ago but still works.
It told me to use My Script Font.com, where you print off a template, fill it in, scan it and then it will generate your font (all free of course).
I did what it told me (aside from printing it off), I opened the pdf file in Photoshop and made sure it was set to greyscale before filling it in using my Wacomb tablet. Then I saved it as a .jpeg like it said before uploading back on to the website.
After a few seconds, your file should be ready for downloading.
It is awesome.
It actually works perfectly.
It’s also called “Pengonian” in case you were wondering.
I found this quite interesting, if not a little strange.
