Paul Howalt features his icon design work, methods, sketches, and more.
- [Instructor] In this movie,…I'm going to share with you the iconic work of Paul Howalt,…a designer and illustrator based out of Arizona.…I've known Paul for a little over 14 years…and he's simply one of the most talented creatives…I've ever met.…And nice enough to let me give you a look at how he…approaches his icon projects.…So, let's dive into this.…What you see here is where Paul starts.…It's a lot similar to my approach to design…and that is it starts in analog.…
Analog facilitates digital creation.…So these are some thumbnail sketches for an icon set…that he's creating for a specific project…that I'm going to show you here in just a second.…But it all starts with drawing.…It all starts with encapsulating or capturing the essence…of an idea,…In this case,…it's a simplified bird character.…And from this thumbnail sketch,…and when I say thumbnail, it's small,…from this thumbnail sketch he then works out…the vector artwork that is very reminiscent…of the sketch itself.…
So, it does capture the essence of the character…
