A quick demo poster tutorial image for a digital illustration class I teach.
I created this in class tonight to demonstrate a working process between Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The assignment was to create an ad poster for a modern product in the style of poster designs from the early 20th century, up to, and including the WPA period. I demonstrated also how you can build your own color themes using the eyedropper tool and any digital image as well as Adobe’s own Kuler website. We also talked about how to use the airbrush tool settings in Photoshop, like the dissolve mode, to give the old style, roughened airbrush look. We also talked about how to work with the layer blend modes to further texturize and fragment the dissolve brushed areas.
