‘Tendo (PS3 \ PC)

My friend from work, Niko, commissioned this beautiful stick. I’m really proud of this one AND I’m proud of who it ws built FOR.

Niko’s son, Vasilli, just turned six… and knows EXACTLY what he wants.

When designing the artwork, Niko told me that his son wanted Mario, Sonic, Pikachu and Donkey Kong – all together.It’s a simple request, really – but six year olds aren’t known for their sound design strategies – so for me it became a challenge.

How can I incorporate all the customer’s requests, and still have a design that looks competent and cohesive. Using the Super Mario Galaxy image as a base, and adding a ribbon along the bottom (with the client’s name on it) allowd me to add the other characters ON THE RIBBON – thereby separating that area from the background and allowing those smaller characters to not look “tacked on” or out of place.

So here we go with the details:
