Mechanical Text - 8
Eight was actually the final number I designed, so I had a bit of fun with it.
In the penciling, I was borrowing some influences from some gaming art books I was given by a friend as a birthday present. I think that definitely leant to my making this number a bit...chunkier than many of my others.
I do like how the influences from the books gave it a sense of movement, The large segment at the top looks like it's going to start moving side to side, while the stalks at the sides of the bottom loop look ready to contract, changing the shape of the number.
