Lillia – Magazine cover, web banner, launch party ticket and branded merchandise


Here are all my JPEG files of my Lillia campaign. I have also included some examples of other work that inspired me and gave me ideas. “Lillia” is a film.

Magazine Cover

Launch Party Ticket

Web Banner

Here are some examples of web banners that I thought looked really cool and stuck out to me. I want to create one that stands out on a web page and that uses bright colours and is eye catching.

Here is my final design.

Here is my branded merchandise and I will explain why I have chosen to design these.

The Flor D’ Assasins are the enemy of Lillia in the film, and in the end she kills the leader of them and avenges her father’s death. I like to make T-shirts that arent just a logo or the character, but to make them geeky and funny, as this is becoming very popular at the moment. This is my other T-shirt design.

This design I think is quite amusing, as Lillia chages the colour of her lilly depending on what mood she is in. When she is happy her lilly is pink, and when she is fighting and angry her lilly is white. It rhymes too which gives it another amusment factor.

I designed this mug in the style which is also quite popular at this time, not using a heart for the love, but using a different logo, which in this case is the lily. Here are some examples that I have seen that insipred me to design this mug.

Boston is a dominant Irish town, so instead of using a love heart, they use a traditional clover, the sign of Ireland.

Here they hate noobs, so they represent hate by using the skull.


My Final 20 second animation sequence


Here below is my final sequence of my character Lillia. I followed my storyboard but slightly changed the camera views, to fully show off my animating. I have uploaded this to youtube so it is fully online, and I hope I will gain some constuctive critism, so that I will be able to make my animating better and gain more knowledge.

I will say that I did struggle with this, not with the animating, but with using the uni computers, as I dont think they are capable of running such a powerful program. My pc ran slow all the time, espeacially when moving my cameras around, and this did annoy me quite a bit. I dont know if there are better computers to use for this program, but I will certainly not be using the uni computers again for motion builder, as it runs better on my laptop.

My Character Development


I took a picture of myself so I could get a good idea of the size and shape I wanted for my character. I then drew my first draft looking at this picture.

This is my first sketch of my character. I don’t really like it as i wanted her to be more skinny and curvy, so she is more sexy and confident. I flipped it as well so she can look better. I drew another outline in illustrator.

I drew this outline by first drawing it rough, then using the pen tool to go around my sketch and neatening it up. I then coloured it in a shaded it to create my final character design.
