8PE Entertainment Logo (Behind the Scenes)

This was a fun logo to create. I decided to try a different process than I normal. Usually I use my laptop but I wanted to challenge myself to create this logo solely using the iPad Pro 9.7in and Apple Pencil with only two software programs, Procreate and Affinity Photo to sketch it out and edit.

Here's how I started:

I like to begin with sketching. I believe that is the base needed to create any design and helps shape the artwork. After I use a pen tool to outline the highlights, I am able to begin adding shapes and giving the design life by painting in and adding color. Each step is important because it provides me with a smooth and organized manner to create. I am sure many other artists feel the same way. This has been a skill that has helped create numerous projects of mine.
