There are three tracks and each track, Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced received their first brief on July the 28th. I am doing the Advanced and Intermediate tracks but this post is about the Advanced track and my design that I have done for that brief.
The brief asked us to create a design based on impulse and water ways. We were given some inspirational jpegs and a color palette and then off we went to interrupt the brief using either Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
I really wanted to move out of my comfort zone, which is children's characters and textile design, so I decided that I would create a textured watercolor background and then add lots of layers to my design. I used Adobe Illustrator and I created my own watercolor brushes for the design.
I also created a pattern brush for the design that is used to give the illusion of being under the sea.
I will post the other designs in the weeks to come.
thanks for reading and commenting.
