WINNING DESIGN - The Song of Mermaid - Robsonborges

shoutOut on 30/11/11 by DuncanBoxie in peeps

Splishy Splash!!!

Congratulations go out to Robsonborges for his stunning first victory on Springleap with his impeccably cool fantasy design entitled, The song of mermaid.

Mermaids are rather mysterious creatures!
In some cultures they are beautiful half maiden half fish beings who save drowning sailors from a date with Davy Jones Locker, in others they are terrible creatures that seduce you with their looks and then drag you beneath the waves to feast on your flesh.
Hmmm, well either way, this design has a powerful allure that cannot be denied.

This amazing design has employed the art of incorporating ‘negative space’ in order to create a more complete piece. It does this by using the tee colour to its full potential, which in this case becomes not only the background colour, but also the main colour for the mermaid and her fishy friends.

To top it all off Robsonborges has created a dazzling gradient effect that silhouettes the mermaid beautifully in its glow and enhances the overall depth of The song of mermaid.
I personally like the fact that he made a secondary row of stalactites to create an added sense of intensity…now that is what I call going the extra mile!

We asked Robson Borges to tell us more about himself, this is what he had to say:

"My name is Robson, I am a graphic designer and an illustrator based in São Paulo, Brazil. I love urban art, rock, t-shirts and the internet, I try to inspire myself in everything I see on the streets and on daily lives of the world's metropolises. I am very shy so I do not like to write about myself so much."

Well, he may not like to write about himself, but his super cool designs speak volumes about his talent and personal nature!

If you would like to see more of Robson Borges amazing designs please cruise across to his personal website….prepare for your jaw to drop to the floor ;)

This has come just in time for Christmas, if ya know what I mean…hint hint Santa!

Robson we cannot wait to see your next submission, we have no doubt that it’s going to be awesome.
