WeChat Sticker | The Daily Life of A’Wang – Episode Two
Since the first appearance of my sticker “The Daily Life of A’Wang”, it has enjoyed great popularity in downloading and using. I really appreciated your supports and encouragement. In two months of usage, I found that these 24 stickers couldn’t fit the needs of diverse chatting. So in my spare time, I started to create episode two for my sticker. I hid a gem from my previous article if you were heedful enough to notice it. There’s a sticker not belong to the Episode One that was a hint for Episode Two.
It named “The Daily Life of A’Wang | Episode Two”. Compared with my first sticker, the second one may be closer to daily expression. I thought about the frequent words that people usually chat, and combined the unique characteristics of my dog. Then together, they were transformed into another cute sticker in the end.
My stickers were all designed out of the working hours, or at night. A sticker was born from two or three hours designing. The process of creation was really complicated, including concept brewing, a combination of each design element, analysis of perspective representation and dynamic figures, the ratio of exaggerated expression, etc. After that, retouch was a must before the sticker was ready to be used.
As shown in the image above, a sticker was composed of several anchor points, which was connected by Pen Tool and then outlined the figure step by step. I really encouraged you all to create your own artwork instead of copying. For the approval of being published on a sticker gallery, it usually had to wait for 10 working days. However, this time, it took only one day as my sticker was submitted. Probably because of the originality, I thought.
There’s an anther hidden gem in the sticker. After the hours of designing at 1:00 past midnight, I was totally worn-out. The last 24th sticker awaited my pen to fulfill the emptiness, but I was lost at that moment. I lay down on the bed, stretching out my arms and legs while looking at the ceiling. Then an idea came across my mind: “Why not an exhausted expression?”. That’s how the last one was created, which had made a funny closure for my sticker’s Episode Two, I thought.
For more details of how I created the stickers, feel free to read my previous article ” Sticker | The Daily Life of A’Wang”. I hope you love my Sticker Episode One & Episode Two. Enjoy downloading and chatting with friends and families with my stickers. Maybe, some other time, there will be Episode Three.
