Cover of One Horse Town poster

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I usually don't have time for creation, but those I do at work, but when I have free time, I like copying — as we did as student with paintings — appealing visuals from others.

Like I said to @firstdefence , I like Art nouveau, the seventies and all those poster from the other century in which I'm born, or earlier ones.  That's why I really like this artist: https://1horsetown.co.za/

Here my cover of one of his Poster from 2015.
I can certainly spend more time on the hairs… just not today!

The black can be atone to look more like the original, but I like this punchy one.

And the lines.
A lot of vertical and horizontal lines appear while zooming or dezooming, it's a bug, if you noticed this, please comment here:

looks like quite a bit of work...I noticed you mixed the raster/vector...one of the features I really like about AD but have not used it recently...certainly speed things up..

In fact, the vector part is fun because it's fast, and the work grow easily. The tricky part is the "flowers", that can't be done without cuting the upper part in moons.

It's a good exercise with simple forms, more complexe using the appearance panel that I barely use and multi-strokes (but it's not easy to have the result in 1 single part, sadly).

Playing with the font distortion was really easy and faster than expected with the Transformation tools once you've added wavy strokes-guide lines in background and  selected part of the nodes.

 

And for painting: the skull was fun and contrasted enough to reproduce easily. But the hair and the yellow leave… seems deceptively easy, but are not.  I suspect I zoom and unzoom too much, working on details that won't be visible.

 

I noticed another bug on export with the different strokes. I'll try to find a solution, perhaps expending the stroke…
