"XVIII" Watermark / Logo
Because I could, and for practice, I re-created my new watermark in Substance Designer. This is a realtime capture taken in SD, the apparent depth is entirely in the height map.

"XVIII" Watermark / Logo

I needed a super simple watermark for my renders, this is what I came up with. It's a simple enough design to be used nearly anywhere and lends itself well to different colors.

The roman numerals XVIII (18) in the middle have two purposes. First, this year (2018) feels like the year I've finally come into my own as an artist. Also, 18 is the number of the Moon tarot card. According to some sources the moon represents both creativity and anxiety, something that resonates with me deeply. It just felt right.

This was first drawn out in a notebook, then messed with in Photoshop, and finally refined and finished in Affinity Designer.
