I was invited to create avatars to one of the most creative design team – unfold. Thank you, guys, for the opportunity to make this idea come true!
The artist sets a unique character and signature style to the avatar. If you generate an avatar by software, you won’t be able to get this result.
Identifying and understanding the basic shapes is my guide when approaching each new avatar. The forms reveal a lot from the person’s character and temper.
Did you know edgy and sharp forms discover a rigorous and precise personality while the rounded shapes suggest a kind and easygoing nature?
The accents are our hidden (or not that hidden) identificational numbers. They are our spell, making us recognizable from one another.
I tried not to overdo with the accents since the avatars are not cartoons. The avatar usually has a different purpose – to present yourself in social media, to use them on your CV, email signature, or to make a present to a friend.
How do the persons’ visual characteristics speak to me? I don’t know in person the unfold team, but by observing their marks, I create an image for them. Into the individual perception of the artist lies the making!
The artist is a philosopher as well since he observes studies, and with each work, he presents his truth in front rest of the world.
I prefer to draw analog because this way, my imagination lands much faster on the paper, instead of on the tablet screen. It is the first step I take before going to digital drawing.
That’s my passion! I express with pen and pencil in my hand since I was a kid!
These are the final avatars! I hope they will bring a lot of smiles and positive emotions to unfold!
Here is is the most exciting part for you – to discover how the artist sees you!
