Voltron Laptop Skin Design: Final Product


Form Cat-tron

12 x 8

Photoshop / Illustrator

This design is inspired by the Netflix Original Series – Voltron: Legendary Defenders. I used a screen-split formation used in the show and put cat versions of each character in their respective spots. The backgrounds represent their main focus, abilities, and personalities.

The first thing I did to make this was trace my sketches of the cat heads into Illustrator. Then, in Photoshop, I separated the screen and drew the backgrounds. After that, I put the Illustrator cat head files into photoshop. I duplicated the layers of the cat heads and took away the saturation to make a white version of the cat heads to put behind to create a white “shadow”/highlight.

Lastly I places my design on the GelaSkins template and cropped the edges in photoshop.

This has probably been my favourite project so far. It’s not perfect or top-quality, but I can see myself improving the more I practice these programs. I like how it turned out and I can’t wait to continue to practice and improve.


Some Elements of Design Used

Colour: I used colour to represent each character presented. I generally used a colour scheme in each section. Top left: Analogous (Reds, Oranges, Yellows), Bottom left: Monochromatic(Blues), Middle: Complementary (Purple and Yellow), Bottom right: Monochromatic (Yellows made browns)

Line: I used literal lines to separate each section from the other, but it also leads the viewers eyes from each section back to the middle.
