Hi, I'm Michelle a Graphic Design/Illustration student. I'm struggling with my first proper brief!! I am to create merchandise and posters for punk band called 'Bi-Polar Bear' (in there own words.. something that will make you think, WTF) They liked my original sketches for this tightroping polar-bear. They wanted bright/contrasting colours and bold black lines. I'm not sure it works now its finished... What can I do to improve? I think the position the bear is in is a bit stiff, and doesnt really flow. The outlines dont seem to flow well. (I'm using illustrator and new to 'Live Trace' etc. What can I do to improve?? Should I use the pen tool? Simplify the shapes? Work on anatomy/certain areas of the illustration? Also the poster design, I know the type feels a bit 'blah' any ideas on what I can add to it? Or what typefaces / composition to use?
