It is such a pleasure to have found Mochammad in this site. First time I engaged a designer/illustrator in Truelancer. The job is to make an illustration for 3 characters for my soon to be released poetry book cover but he gave me more than just the characters. He designed a book cover for me too and it looks unique and not like a normal book cover. I love the extension to the back part of the book.
Throughout the project, he delivers the illustration results consistently, phase by phase and efficiently quite fast and contributed so much to make the characters I had described in my storyboard alive. Example, I described in the storyboard that I would like one of the characters' forehead to be abit high and he literally did it based on my requirements. Just nice and cute. And one funny unexpected situation happened. One of the characters we called it the Denim Gal, cos she has to be wearing a denim jacket. Apart from highlighting the importance of that jacket, I did not describe so much about it but he ended up creating the character similar to me. Like hands behind her jeans' pockets, the posture, the hair and the type of earrings which I used to wear when I was younger. These simple aspects connect the dots to the storyline of my poetry even though I had no intention to make it obvious but it looks abit like me including the protruding mouth from the side view. I mean the dwg is prettier than my actual self. Anyway, of cos I told him to reduce the protruding mouth slightly cos that view is not my personal favorite. hahaha.. and of cos he helped to botox it for me and makes it looks naturally perfect. The other character in dark yellow singlet was also beautiful describing the character in my mind.
Every details of these characters which I requested like the hair colour, skin tone and so on were meticulously carved. The gal with the high forehead, he helped me enhanced it with a purple blazer and tie to make it look like my favorite character in Ocean's 8, Lou Miller by Cate Blachett which I had a last minute idea. Gorgeous.
Overall I am so proud of the entire final design. I cannot wait to publish the book. Meanwhile, I already sent the image to be printed for my mobile phone cover and it is now my hp wallpaper. I love it a million times and appreciate Mochammad's efforts and professional results!! You guys can ping me to see the screenshot of it if you dnt believe me. Thank u Mochammad!!
