Been a while since I've submitted something to one of the dA contests. I was kindly invited to participate again so I thought I'd give the Toshiba contest a try.
About the design:
Ahh, my school days, how I miss them. From grade school to college, they seemed so carefree compared to my busy life now. I wanted to capture that carefree and energetic spirit that these young whipper-snappers seem to have in excess, while at the same time depict an image that's completely modern in style and meaning. Hopefully I'm not too behind the times, but I'm pretty sure this trendy style's still considered cool by modern-day youngsters.
Hope you kiddos (young and old alike) dig it.
Oh and comments and crits are always welcome as usual.
Done completely digitally in Photoshop CS5; about 25 hours.
Just as an FYI, the "digital" logo as depicted in this image is completely original and is not used by any current corporate entity. It's really just a simple decorative label of the title of the artwork that I came up with on a whim. If you'd like to download a copy of the image without the logo in the corner, you can get it here:
And here's a sample view of the design on a Toshiba Satellite:
