Special Feature: Making Of

So, here are a couple of my early sketches and discarded attempts:

超 (super)

sketch_super

sketch_superThe idea use the page layout for the character (the Hanzi character, I mean) came later so I had to rearrange everything


力 (power)

sketch_strength

_16
(these are okay as concepts, I think. The one I went with is probably slightly less close to the basic meaning of the character, but more memorable.)


红 (red/bonus)
赤 (red/naked)

sketch_littlered(I was confused about the different reds at the start)


男 (male) & 女 (female)

sketch_mf


吃 (to eat) & non-realized 喝 (to drink)

sketch_eatdrink(I’m still kind of annoyed I couldn’t make the 喝 character work.)


土 (earth)

sketch_earth



鬼 (ghost)

sketch_ghost(For a while I tried to make this a crusading knight’s ghost, so I could put a cross on the chest, and I messed around with it in some other ways before restarting from scratch.)


哭 (to cry)

sketch_cry_1

skech_cry_2


氏 (clan)

sketch_clan


出 (to come out)

sketch_come_out_2

Come_out5


弓 (bow)

sketch_bow


大 (large, big)

sketch_big2
