Hello creativity lovers! A quick break from Star Wars content for this post so I can finally update my blog with the art I’ve been making over the last few weeks. For anyone who is here purely for the Star Wars content, do not fret, my friends! This blog celebrates Star Wars AND creativity, so I post about art-related topics every now and then. If you want to see more of my art-related posts, you can do that right here! Some of it will also be Star Wars art, but some like this piece are not related to Star Wars.
And speaking of tutorials, I have done a couple of tutorials that I haven’t posted about, and one of them I did last year! I put that one on hold because I became a little frustrated with the process. If I remember correctly😅 I abandoned it and revisited it several months later, and funnily enough, I finished it, and it came out really well (I think!) So I’d like to blog about that one today, I won’t be going through the tutorial today, but I might write about the process later on. For now, I just want to show my friends what I’ve done because I struggled with this one a fair bit.
There was no PSD to work with either, so you had to do everything following the online tutorial from scratch. Here is the original poster:
I had many issues getting the text to the correct size and alignment. So when I stopped, I left it half done, and it looked like this:
When I came back to the poster after many months, I decided I would do whatever I could to get the text and alignment right, and I came up with two versions of the original. I finally decided to change the colours of the final version to reflect more of “me” into it, I guess. And then I animated it for a bit of fun and I think it came out great:
I guess the moral of my story is sometimes putting things down for another day is the best thing you can possibly do. Especially if you’re stuck and going nowhere. Art can be a fantastic thing, but it can also be frustrating. It’s all part of that creative process 😊😁 Just don’t give up and come back another day!
I am trying to learn how to design posters. And this was the first typographic poster I’ve tried to make. So you’ll be seeing more of this type of art as I learn and grow – but with less frustration lol 😂🤣 If you have any comments about this art or any of my art, feel free to leave me a comment. I always reply!
