I've been getting a lot of YouTube layout related commissions as of late, so I decided to hold off from updating the blog with individual post and just upload them all in big bulk. Four of the layouts were commissioned by the popular YouTube entertainer Outback Zack. The last one was a quickie for a group of friends who run a small video game focused channel.
N00b vs Pro was the first of the set, and the one I had the most control over. I was in charge of creating the branding of the channel. Everything was created from scratch, with the character based off sketches by Red Minus. Because this is a new channel there no previous established look or style.
There's no release date for when N00b vs Pro, but you can see the layout in half its glory on the YouTube channel. As mention, has no YouTube videos but has put up, but there is currently 800+ people subscribed to the channel!
AniMEME would be the second layout, and the simplest one, basically place a lot of well known memes around a layout. I did recreate and animate 5 memes for the show such as Success Kid, Condescending Wonka, The Most Interesting Man in the World, Good guy Greg, Scumbag Steve, and Bad Luck Brian. The rest were recreated by the various animator on the show.
Again, no release date but it does have an insane about of subscribers; 5,000+.
After the first two, Zack had me do his personal channel. I did this and next one within 24 hours. This one was a lot easier than the previous set because the theme and brand was already set before it was handed to me. They just wanted a new more professional layout. I made a clean layout with the assets I was given, the logo, the illustration of Zack's face, and the gears coming out of his head. The rest of what you see is my work.
Yo Mama is the fourth and last YouTube layout I did for Zack. Based off his popular animated series Yo Mama, I took premade characters from the show and arranged them as you see above. He asked for the layout to have Brodie (the host of the show) be on one side, and 7 of the regular Mama's be on the other. He wanted the mothers to be clickable, and feature a link to the official Facebook.
I opted to make the logo part of a phrase, "Yo Mama is so..." and then each of the Mama's being a choice of a joke; So when you click a mother you're ending a sentence... "Yo Mama is so... HAIRY!" Which when you click on that mother it will take you to a playlist of hairy mother jokes. Also to save space I edited Brodie's shirt to have a "Like Us on Facebook" design on the chest. I thought it was clever way of having the Facebook link on the page creatively and space saving.
As you can see above there was various changes made before it went live.
