Phew – today I can report that I have spent my time designing.
Errrr … no …. not hurrah … but boo!
I spent all day drawing and painting but guess what – yep, I DON’T LIKE MY DESIGN AGAIN!
Oh no not again!
I decided to use the elephant head image from the Wallace Collection but I had not foreseen the collision of
TWO CURLS – ONE CURL FROM THE TAIL AND ONE CURL FROM THE ELEPHANT TRUNK!!!!!
The design does not work, I believe it is because of the two curl elements in the design. The both look odd together.
How could I have improved this design? Well, I think the tail curl needs to be removed from the design and a different element added to the end of the tail. I am also going to go through my sketch book and look at some of the designs that I did very early in the research process. I would like to make some proper illustrations of these first drawings and see if I can get a shape that I am pleased with from these early sketches.
Even though I am feeling disappointed in my design work today at least it has made me think deeply about what I would like to achieve as an end product.
