Vector Cover – Kingdom Hearts

This is a children’s manga cover concept for ‘Kingdom Hearts.’ I compiled the basic layout in Photoshop using multiple images and used Illustrator to vectorize the final layout. Only basic shapes and multiple gradient fills were used to create the final vector cover. The characters were outlined and multiple gradients were applied to achieve the details that I wanted. As I progressed from character to character I developed better techniques (Sora was first, then Mickey, Donald, and finally Goofy). By the time I finished the last character, I definitely felt like I had a better understanding of gradients. Afterwards all of the other elements were vectorized with exception to the bar-code which was a raster image.

The outlines for the book cover were pretty simple. Most of the time and detail was definitely spent on using multiple gradients to give a 3d-like effect for the characters. Originally Sora was smaller and I wanted to include 2 more characters (Kairi and Riku) next to him, but I didn’t have enough time. So I just enlarged Sora to fill in the extra space (which is why his outlines extend far beyond the vector masking). As for the logos, I vectorized all of them except the ‘Disney’ and ‘Square-Enix’ logo because I found those online.

Software Utilized: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop
