Wow exciting bags coming down the chute here shortly.
This is among several “pet projects” that I deeply want to do. I had to start somewhere so this is the early stages of this project.
These are the working images for the elements bags.
The idea is having each elemental symbol, unabashedly self-promoting, as a kind of floating hexagonal “plate” of power that exists in the center of each plane of elemental power.
The Flame Element looks really good and is the most developed so far. I just need a hot spot under the icon, almost molten Earth.
The Air Element is a tricky one as I want to make it more made out of glass or have the clouds and air actually forming the symbol… but clouds are made out of moisture so I have to be careful in that design.
Water just needs to be re-tooled so as not to be so chaotic and control the color and shape of the icon’s splash.
Earth just needs a bit more love and a re-tooling of the falling rocks/dust.
I am attempting to create a visual illusion of depth so you cannot quite determine the size of the icon.. is it as small as a coin or is it gargantuan. How far away from it are we? Etc.
As I am ultra-picky these images may change a little and will for sure be dialed in as individual pieces of beautiful art.
As they stand now, they are in concept phase. I have made one bag as a test (left) and the concept looks pretty promising.
I am also thinking about having the packaging card be a fold out poster… or a mini-poster rather of the actual bag print that will wrap around the bag. Still undecided on that one.
Also thinking about making a 4 bag special package where you can get the whole collection as a special purchase maybe even so far as a display box. When the bags are folded down, and the 4 elements are together, it would be cool to have them as a set. I dunno 🙂
