Here's how i would make Facebook's Poke Icon... :D
Idea was born while i was working on one of my previous projects:
http://dribbble.com/shots/443218-poke you can see the initial sketch of it attached to that shot.
Here's a quick snap for guidance and inspiration i used... hehe http://d.pr/EBLK
Since so many people wonder about this, I'll move this info to here:
Pencil used - Uni Kuru Toga Roulette Model Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil
Sketched on - Behance's Dot Grid Journal
over 1 year ago
Magnifique! Objet d'art!
mmmm not sure. I like it... just not sure if I love it... post it in context? also I want that pencil what is it??
thanks guys :]
@Nick Slogget hehe, perhaps it's hard to tell because it's just a rough idea, I am just not sure if I want to invest any more time in it :D we'll see on the responses we get here.
Pencil used - uni kuru toga roulette with auto lead rotation
Dot grid paper - dot grid journal from behance (just in case anyone wonders)
That looks… awesome
Eddie.. you don't sleep. lets be honest. freakin design stud. I got a question for you off of dribbble btw.
thank you for the pencil rec.
I do love me some dot grid.
and I'll agree with lagoony - its pretty slick.
I definitely poke like this.
@Anthony Lagoon thanks buddy.
@Nick Slogget sleep? what's that? No prob, shoot me an email.
@Haziq Mir haha, thanks! :D
Nothing like a good poke... Love these sketches you do man.
Also... tnx for the tip on the pencil.
wtf, amazing work.
Great work Eddie!
Lol I had to zoom out my browser + roll my chair to the end of the room before I saw it xD Freaking nice though :) well done
Nice sketch, but how does this geometry help you or work when it's at sub-20px sizes? Not a skeptic for the hell of it, but as it's one of the primary design constraints, I'd love to see how it works there.
Kuru Toga, the best pencil there is.
@Justin Roberts haha thanks buddy and u're welcome you can get it for under $20 on jetpens.
@Juan Gomez @Alex Cican @Eric Millington thank you guys!
@Gijs Rogé it's a sketch / game ;P thanks mate. :)
@Sebastiaan de With thank you, geometry here is to show that it will still make sense when it's enlarged. You can see larger version of original FB poke icon if you google it http://goo.gl/RQnZL . But yeah it wouldn't be so important if it only had to be 20px.
@Sully Taylor said it
Man, I love the way you sketch. Gotta buy myself a new dot grid sketchbook too.. If only Facebook looked this good.
Thanks guys! :)
I would like to purchase this "equipment" but is very expensive to send Brazil :(
I loved pencil used - Uni Kuru Toga.
