Signature Elisa by Vashtastic Signature Elisa by Vashtastic
This is for VecType Week - VecType Signature Contest!!! I'm so glad I got this done. I downloaded Illustrator CS 5 and since I have some free time, hopefully I can play around with some cool tuts and brushes.

For this piece, I wanted of course to make my signature - of my actual name for once. I wanted the piece to be something more than just a font slapped on with nothing else.... I pulled a lot of design themes from paisley lmao and of course art nouveau (mucha = <3). I almost want to say that I went overboard with the flourishes, but I do like the finished product. I did everything freehand, so no fonts were used.

All I could hear while I was making this was my Typo teacher saying "Remember, make it legible. I don't care how pretty it is, what good is it if I can't read it?!"

It's SO beautiful! :love:
At first I thought it said Lisa?!
But I love the way you combined the E, so it looks like a picture, and not just tekst..

LMAO and here I thought it would be safe since it is an unusual name. How do you pronounce yours?

wow, just...wow. This is just gorgeous! Honestly it makes me think of a tattoo (which I guess a signature kinda is when it comes to art ^^; ) I love all the little details and how fresh and alive it feels. I hope you win! You totally deserve to!

Aww I bet you were surprised to win the comp then!! You're too hard on yourself :D It's a beautiful piece, and heaps of colour isn't always the best thing, I think you made the right decision keeping this in black and white...it has more of an impact than if you would have added colour :)

Ash's rainbow colours work wonderfully for her pieces though, and you use colour wonderfully yourself...it's just not always needed, sometimes simplicity really makes something stand out from the rest :D

Ooh, I absolutely love this. I don't think you went overboard with the flourishes, though it looks like it took a LOT of effort lol. I could imaging a typo teacher saying that. I never got that class in school unfortunately.

thanks, it did and it didn't. i had a very finished sketch that i used, the part that killed was all those freaking circles and getting them lined up lol typo class made me realize that i did not have what it takes to be an excellent graphic designer ^___^ how have you been? what's new?

I've been well enough I suppose. I'm still kinda trying to figure out what it is I want to do with my life, lol. I'd actually like to be a graphic designer myself.

Other than that, nothing's new. I saw that Anime Vector Artists went down, and that kinda made me sad. I can understand why though.
