A couple of years ago I attempted a vector version of a British classic art deco design, the Wills's Wild Woodbines packet. Now I know what I'm doing, I'll have another go and get it right; meanwhile, here's a couple more I've done recently (and a little more accurately). This one I finished off with a little noise to take the shine off, as it were ... ... and this one I applied a couple of texture layers to, to make it look a bit more knocked about. If anyone's interested, I'll post the whole afdesign file for you to see what I did -- let me know.
Hi Folks, Attached is a work in progress art deco air show poster I am putting together. I have never been the artistic type so I am struggling with coming up with a suitable way to add shading to the plane. As you can see there are 3 planes on my poster (There will only be one in the end) each one is an option I am looking at. 1 is white with no shading but I think it looks too clinical. 2 is one with a grey gradient added and 3 is a white one with a further black layer added over the top with the opacity reduced and with the noise increased. I'm not happy with any of them if I am honest. Is there anyone out there that can offer some advice? Cheers folks Mark SGA Poster v1.0.afdesign SGA Poster v1.0.pdf
Brits of a certain age will recognise this classic cigarette packet design from the beginning of the last century. (Or if you're American, it's a PACK!) Even non-smokers loved this Art Deco design, and there was uproar in the 60s when it was changed to something modern and unexciting. All done in vectors in AD.
I watched a documentary on BBC tv a few weeks ago, where they attempted to recreate the opening night of the Beeb's television service in 1936. I've been interested in the mechanical (and electronic) technology since I was a kid in the 50s, and I have one or two contemporary encyclopaedia articles by J L Baird himself. Naturally, I thought I can do that with a computer ... So here is a frivolous try-out imitating the BBC's own style, as made in the 1930s by the legendary celebrated (and entirely fictitious) inventor, Prof. Kasper. You can see the finished video here: https://youtu.be/z6nLyJw3G30. It was made in Serif's VideoPlus -- of course!
