UI Skin test for LOLapps

So this is a bit of a diversion from the normal types of art I pursue (I'm keeping my options open for full-time work as you can probably imagine), but about a week ago I finished a skin test for a user interface for LOLapps (an up and coming app/game developer for facebook). I think it turned out very well. They gave me the test after speaking for a few minutes on the phone saying it would take two hours. Well if I did user interfaces on a regular basis I could have probably churned it out in two hours, but only after the necessary research into the style they wanted. All in all after the research was done, I think it took about 4 hours. So not too bad. I'll have to wait and see what they really think about it later though as they have decided to put off hiring for the position for a few months - bummer.

There are a few things I could fix and make better about it, but I was kind of on a time limit of course. It was designed in Photoshop, with a few pieces made in Illustrator and Flash. What do you think?


  1. I think it looks great. was it supposed to be a medieval theme?

  2. Thanks, well the game has a Victorian setting and they wanted it to have rich colors with a dark slant. So this is what resulted.


Thanks for reading, now tell me what you think.
