Work completed as part of course work with MoGraphMentor.com
This is the last version of one of the first assignements we made for MoGraphMentor.com: Designing for a theme.
We had to design and illustrate a collection of objects and scenes that live within a conceptual theme. Each of our comps needs a consistent visual style and is related in some way to a theme.
We had to hand out 6-9 Frames and one titleboard.
I choose the theme: Busker
I began mind mapping, and then sketching and coloring with watercolors on paper.
I chose a handmade style and made some vector illustration in Illustrator using the “Pencil Tool” instead of the “Pen Tool”. I thought it would fit better than having clean, graphical Vector graphics.
In a second step I loaded the vectors in Photoshop and tried to paint them in a watercolor style but digitally. It was for me something really new. And I realized how powerful brushes are in PS.
During the process I had the idea to tell a story, so I choose to combine the Illustration with a text.
Conclusion: It was fun using Illustrator and Photoshop in a way I never used before. I realized that texturing in PS with brushes has tons of possibilities and it needs a lot of decision taking to stay in a conceptional theme.
