Rough Concept Development: CMYK pen
March 27, 2011 § Leave a comment
We’re working on a project in class making a pen for a specific demographic. I chose the artsy character designer profile we made up, and so far the design involves some sort of black-box mechanism for mixing CMYK ink (controlled by sliders) so you can draw in any colour. Other ideas include Wacom pen / capacitive touch screen stylus (iPad etc) integration. It’s a lot to fit in a small package, so I might have to leave those. You can’t have it all, I suppose. Well, the stylus would just be the pen nib without any ink, but the Wacom part requires actual electronics inside which might be a tight fit.
Anyway, sketch page 01, the very first and very roughest of drafts.
That claw-hand is kind of creepy. Maybe it’s designed for witch ergonomics as well?
