Personal Branding

Just updated my bear, this is the still image I’ll use on business cards etc, however I plan to copy the effect onto the whole gif.

I used a combination of photo manipulation and hand drawn elements to create the brown fur texture, blurring and merging the layers. I went for a brown bear, as a couple of years ago when I made the gif, I used a reference of a brown grizzly bear, but as you can see I’ve layered up several shades of browns to create fur, and I found a good brush in photoshop. (I also used some oranges and yellows) I also added some soft pink for the inside of the mouth.


I’m planning to use the paper bag background that I used for my website for the business cards to make a border around my image, I played around with different hues, and I haven’t really decided which colour to use, I may stick to the original colour, but I did experiment with pinker or greener shades.
