This week I worked on a second set for the Minnow Avatars Generator requested by @wearecodex.
If you haven't seen my first proposal for these, you can check them out here
Since I already explained the process the first time, I will not go into that much detail. I will say that I was feeling inspired by a Circus theme and its patterns, colors and shapes. That's why this set is even more quirky and odd-looking.
I started off with the same setup from before and created more parts out of my imagination.
The image below shows the first elements:
Then I went on to create the whole system for 3 minnows:
I started to bring out the previous parts to see how the first and second sets would work together:
I had to make sure all the parts fit together perfectly with the previous system, this took a lot of time and micro-adjustments, but I finally achieved it.
Benefits / Improvements
- This system brings even more variation to the current one, which can help increase user engagement.
- The new set works perfectly with the previous proposal and should work with other contributions.
- These three minnows add more expressions to the generator such as disgust, tiredness and frightened eyes, just to mention a few.
- Everything was done in vectors using Adobe Illustrator, saved with text in curves and for versions CS5 and above.
