The Forest Invasion

By Alecat

My submission for this year's AVCon merch design competition. A hoodie design.

The idea was to subtly hint at an old... friend in the trees. I think I should have made the character lines a bit thicker, but I ran out of time. I wish I were able to use more spash colour in this though. Unfortunately there were no linking colours in the character costumes for me to use to tie the greens throughout.

Experimented with using halftones to shade things but I think it's clearest without them. I instead used butterflies and grunge green splashes to break up the white background.

Hoodie vector from Jake Burke. Can't find a link, but I hope that's sufficient credit.

[edit] Huh, just read entries have to be black and white. I am dumb, but at least I put a black and white preview of the design with my entry. Obviously I am bad at reading rules ._.

[edit2] Now that the contest results have been released... did anyone spot the invader in the trees? I didn't want to give it away before but now I just want to learn from whatever mistakes I made here. Can't wait to see the winner's design!

Yeah, it wasn't until I read the description on your entry that I realised! And I'd already submitted by then.
