AY, SECOND PLACE! THANK YOU GUYS


EDIT: Darn. I put in “page 6” instead of “page 5”. There’s no missing page, don’t worry.


Hello hi good morning welcome and today you’re looking at my Concept of Love entry! I wanted to try and make my entry stand out from the others, so I went with an almost 3-colors-only palette, simple looking characters (so that you can put yourself in their shoes if you wanna) and multiple concepts of love in a single entry!


————————————————————————————

I heard of the Concept of Love contest through the front page banner, and I wanted to join in the fun. I originally started out with the idea of a yin yang-type concept, but I quickly realized that it looked... boring.

I had multiple concepts of love in mind, so I said “hey why not use all of them?” I thought of that while on the treadmill the other other day, 4 days before the deadline. (February 13 2021) Knowing that i only had 4 days, I settled on a black-white-red look, and simplistic character designs.

Squares and circles for heads! Red against grayscale! It gave me White Stripes vibes, who always used red, black and white in their stuff. (I’m not fans of them unfortunately)

I started first with page 2 because I didn’t have any ideas for the first page yet. That’s the reason why it looked different compared to the other pages, with the less saturated shadows and whatnot. After I finished page 2 and 3, I was up at night doodling ideas for pages 4, 5 and 1.

You can see lots of scrapped ideas, like how the ending is supposed to show me in the balcony of a house in some tropical island, while wearing a suit and holding a glass of wine.

I eventually reused my first ideas for my entry, the yinyang metaphor, for the third page.


After going it for 2 full days, I finally finished it! It’s here!
