Sky Development

ABOVE IS A SLIDESHOW OF 5 IMAGES

I had a lot of trouble with making my sky look more like a sky and not just blending the sea with the sky. My peer suggested cartoon like clouds but then they just looked out of place. This is when I got the idea of adding gaussian blur to the cloud to make them more fluffy.

Finished clouds.

Me and my peers think the clouds to the left work the best for my theme. They are more realistic than the clouds that my peer did for me. The gaussian blur really helps with the messy brush strokes and makes them less of the focus and more of an asset.

 

These clouds still look a little out of place from the rest of my final outcome. I could make them with the pen tool like I did with everything else but the gaussian blur makes it less noticable.

Typeface Development

I am experimenting with my typeface more after having a talk with my tutor about my typefaces and suggested messing around with warping the text in Illustrator. With doing this, I can make the text have a watery effect to keep to the theme of my work: Atlantis.

Digital Development 2

I took a picture of my hand rendered work and then placed it on my Illustrator document. After that I turned the image into a template which made it so I can trace over it.

Then, after I got the shape right, I smoothed the edges to give it a more smoother look instead of it being separate brush strokes. This made the vector more cartoon looking and more suitable for my target audience. I then did the darkest green the outside like the drawing and slowly started to make it lighter the closer in it gets. This look instead of using a gradient gives my style quite a unique look but still keeping the cartoon look.

I wanted my work to have a more realistic look but with the time restrictions I had on this project I don’t think I would have been able to do that.

Possible Fonts for Poster

I want to use a few fonts on my poster which are easy to read and catch your eye.

Corals

This font is very clean and formal. It is easy to read and noticeable from a quick glance. It is a little thin but I think I can use this for information or the title.

Calm Waters

I think this would work well for my title or my body test. It is easy to read and it suits the theme of Atlantis. This is most likely going to be my chosen title text. I will discuss these with my peers though.

Atlantis Cruise

This text is really good. It’s bold but easy to read. I can imagine this text being as body text at the bottom of my poster.

Thickedy Quick

This typeface I can imagine it being the date release of the game.

I will make a mock up at home where I can download the fonts of what I want the poster to look like.
