8 add de­cals and text to your ma­chin­ery

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Where ap­pro­pri­ate, I like to ap­ply logo de­cals and text on the sur­face of the mech de­sign. I stud­ied graphic de­sign in school, and I’ve al­ways en­joyed logo de­sign and brand­ing. By plac­ing text and lo­gos strate­gi­cally in spe­cific ar­eas, I find it helps to com­ple­ment the over­all de­sign. I don’t like to clut­ter the de­sign with de­cals since it’s only meant as an ac­cent and not be the main fo­cus. Along with adding a bit of graphic flare to the de­sign I think de­cals can also give a bit of back­story to the mech. Maybe it’s the logo of an in­tel­li­gence agency for a se­cret project, who knows? Just have fun with it!
