Weekly Challenge - 01 October - 07 October

This week's challenge is an exercise in tone values.

The Challenge:
Create a product label or image of a packaging box using only one colour. The colour doesn't matter, as it's just your colour of choice, however, the colour must be used creatively to give the impression of multiple colours. Hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, and shading may be used to convey these tones.

Research & Reference:
You may re-create an existing product label or packaging for this exercise. For research and examples, take a look at woodcut prints, or the portraits on most paper currency.

Due Date:
All submissions must be posted to this thread by midnight, Saturday, 07 October. Comments and critiques are invited and encouraged at any point during the challenge.

Good luck!

-- BK

Illustration from the Deers and Doebuck Comprehensive Catalogue of Oddities and Endities "Specialty Foods" AKA "Culinary Assaults" Section:

"Only Deers and Doebuck has the guts to offer Bernie's Peppers! Suffer from a selection of peppers from across the globe. Bernie's is the only supplier of the ultra-hot Obliterati JalapeƱos and the ever-infamous Solar Doom Peppers. Order now!"


While not the first illustration I've ever made for my Deers and Doebuck catalog, this is probably by far the best and most authentic-looking.


I can see now that what was meant to be the far ear needs work. It looks too easily mistaken for a neck. However, if it's seen as the neck, the head then needs a far ear drawn in. Also, there's too much white space on the tongue and, arguably, the roof of the mouth. Live and learn.
On the other hand, I like how three-dimensional the mouth looks.

PS. I ran out of time, so this is only halfway done, heh. I was going to go back in and make the various values with hatching (using that darkest brown color), and I still might. Just wanted to have something done by the end of the week.

Nice. It almost looks like you swiped a real label for this. :p

It's a mouse or other small rodent. I didn't have an exact species in mind when I drew it.

Thanks, Don :)


Aaand nope didn't swipe anything, lol. The king salmon thing is a logo I use for myself sometimes, and everything else is the magic of fonts and geometric shapes.

edit-- I also have a few graphic design classes under my belt (I'm an illustration major so only a few xD), so I knew a little about what I was doing before I started.
