Another Scooterissimo poster artwork. This is the 0 series vespa from 1953  which featured in the film with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. Roman Holiday. This is designed as an A2 poster and I wanted that grainy look, so I added 100% noise. There's also a scan of some old book endpapers multiplyed in there.post-30726-0-22201200-1494007550_thumb.jpg

Ohh, love this! Excellent poster work!

 

Brings back memories too as I always wanted a Vespa. But as a youngster all I could afford was a Cushman Husky motor scooter, 2nd hand. Looked really ugly like this...

Thanks so much Jer. That Cushman looks as if it was a military machine mad to be dropped by parachute...

Now's the time to get a Vespa! The modern ones look brilliant.

Nice artwork, good colour choice. I think it would work well with the flat colour by itself. How about you put a version up without the noise?

post-30726-0-71948000-1494754924_thumb.pngThanks. This noise issue came up in another thread and still causes my brain to hurt. This was printed out at SRA2 and is perfect -ever so slightly grainy without looking like it's made of sand. Unless anyone knows of a better way, I had to take a punt that the amount of noise I added would print up looking correct. When I exported the small version to put up here, it's too noisy but I didn't want to sift through hundreds of layers converting levels. Maybe a screenshot would've been better but I didn't think of it...

That is actually a good point. The final target medium being print changes what you do on screen dramatically. Being a motion graphics guy, the screen is the target. I think you made a good call there.
