Right so now I was on my way to develop what I have in mind for my final piece. It took a while to get there as again I wanted it to fit well with the brief thus making me have to get a lot of feedback and make a few changes from the first version, I also think that I’ve experimented a lot on this project for my front cover. The development will cover over two blogs as that I made two different versions.
Doing what i did in all my other assignments i decided to get some feedback from a few people on how it looked. I mostly got good feedback though some people could not see what the illustration was, saying that the smudging did not help. So then I took it back to the drawing boards and decided not to smudge the illustration at all and make the shadow less noticeable which I found it worked out perfectly.
I used the old article to reassure that people will know the subculture i’ll be reviving, I also used it as a sense of looking back at history and getting people to remember who they are and what they did wasn’t so bad. The reason why I done the smearing effect is because zoot suiters had rough edges under all that luxurious clothing. Though I thought it would work pretty well others unfortunately did not agree so therefore i changed it. I will be putting the smudge and non smudged version in my portfolio for future references.
Below is the finished version.
