Hello! Today I want to tell you about my style searching and experiences.
I never tried to define my own style. I always worked in different ways but everyone always said like "Oh Liza, it looks so like you!". Whatever I did - vector/raster/web design - doesn't matter. But if you want to be a good artist, you have to have your own visual style.
some of my very and not very old pics, find more in my portfolio but it's also quite old ==
Autumn 2017 I finally found the style I like to do, like to watch and which has some perspectives (as I hope).
As an experiment and studying I did simple lettering using my own technique.
I chose random quote "Piglet joy". It's not popular phrase on Russian but sometimes you can say it if somebody (or even you) so happy that almost squeals and grunts from the pleasure :)
Every time I'm starting from the rough paper sketch. I can think properly only with pencil x_x
After that usually I'm trying to find the color scheme. I chose 2 final variants and decided to pick the last one.
Work itself is a bit boring - simply making base shapes by pen tool in Adobe Photoshop, adding values and textures by different brushes on different layers with different modes.
This is the finished piece. But I want to make the center composition more bright and interesting, so I changed the background to add more contrast.
Final final variant :)
Piggy so happy that almost squeals and grunts from pleasure and thanks you for watching :)
