I present to you my next entry for @sndbox's Crypto Art & Design Challenge [Round 7: STEEM!]
This time I decided to use the incredible style of the Famous Artist of the Northern Renaissance Albrecht Dürer!
So I hope you like it! ^.^
This was probably one of the easiest idea I've ever had. Mainly because I was truly amazed by the the pen-and-ink drawing of Praying Hands and wanted to try the technique using only Photoshop...
but that's not all.
I wish with this work to show the value of this cryptо currency. For me, it is not just another logo in the competition, but a future for development, income growth, an opportunity to achieve higher goals.
Who knows, may one day will become my main income. ^.^
So let's get started! ^.^
As always, the first element (and the most important one) was the Steem logo. I made basic contours, shades and strokes:
I had to hide the logo for now and concentrate on the hands:
Then combined the two and added shadows and highlights:
I didn't like the logo, it was too dark for the composition, so decided to make it brighter.
That way I concentrate the viewer's eyes first on it and then on its subordinate elements.
I also painted some grass behind the hands, because the background was too simple.
Special thanks to @shotgunscream for his advice to make the background a bit darker, to have more contrast with the hands and the logo.
After some adjustments here's the final version:
Hope you like it!
^.^ Have a unique day, everyone! ^.^
Thanks for stopping by!
