Italian frog for Warning Zone party at Firenze

Yes, I know it's been absolutely ages since I last posted some work. I've actually been on holiday for a couple of weeks and therefore was too busy beforehand to update my blog (plus I forgot!). Anyway here is a frog I've created recently for Warning Zone. It is the latest adaptation of the frog character I created for Warning Zone. You can see some of the other examples in my portfolio and in previous blog posts 01, 02, 03. This particular frog is being used on an invitation for a 'Supper at Firenze' Italian restaurant in Kibworth. Check out the frog below and how the front of the invitation looks below again. Would love to know what you think. Enjoy!

Warning Zone - New Frog characters created!

 

I have recently created a couple of new frog character designs on behalf of Warning Zone who are based on Frog Island in Leicester. A detective type frog was needed and also a version of the original frog (see this post for details) for use on a Christmas invitation.

 

 

I created a couple of sketches for the detective and then several slight variations during the vector stage of artwork. The frog above is the final version and the images below show the sketches and the vector varieties.

 

 

 

Below is the final version of the frog in a Christmas scene looking festive and jolly!

 

Let me know what you think and please feel free to  get in touch if you would like to discuss any artwork you may need creating. Call me on 01858 462779 or email me at nathan@antcreations.co.uk

Warning Zone - Frog gets the 'Graffiti' treatment

The frog I designed for Warning Zone earlier in the year (see here) has been given the 'graffiti' treatment. The company who actually sprayed the artwork on the wall are called Urban Canvas and they've done a great job! (Their site link www.urbancanvas.co.uk)

He now appears proudly outside their building at 30 Frog Island in Leicester. Check it out if you're driving by or check out Warning Zone's website at www.warningzone.org.uk

Warning Zone - Their Frog on my Blog

Warning Zone are a company based on Frog Island in Leicester. Due to the great name of their location it was decided to promote the business by using a frog character as a bit of a company mascot. The frog will be used in numerous places but especially on the website and in particular the blog which is aptly named 'The blog on the Frog'. A brand new happy frog character was therefore required to fulfill his promotional duties.
The frog needed to be a typical green frog that can be found anywhere in the UK. He needed to convey a positive persona without being too silly but also not too serious. A fun frog but not necessarily a funny frog. The initial design is of the frog sitting on a rock or a very small island (a frog island)! At a later date the character will also be developed further to incorporate different poses and props.  Here is the final full coloured result for the initial frog pose...

 

 

If you're interested to see how the character developed then please read on! As I mentioned earlier the frog will be in different poses in the future therefore the initial sketches are of a frog both standing and sitting. I created several sketches for the first stage and then some additional sketches following the feedback from the client.

 

 

One of the frog's were chosen as the favourite. With only a few minor changes needed I went straight to vector artwork and created the amendments on screen before sending the next stage to the client, a version of the character in black and white and also a version using a few flat colours.

 

Some minor changes were required after this stage, mainly the shape of the rock the frog was sitting on. It was a little too uniform and needed to be more irregular and rock like. Apart from the rock all that was left to do was to add the minor details such as skin patterns, highlights and obviously the correct colour schemes.

The final result (appearing higher in this post) can soon be seen on the Warning Zone website.
