Companion "Love" Poster

I had so much fun on the two "Love" posters I did for #sundayART that I decided to make another. This time with a quote from Plato. Pretty much a companion piece to the gray one from before. I tried to keep the layout/scale the same.

#sundayART: Love

Two entries for the prompt "Love." I wanted to try out a more minimal graphic style using text. Had some different plans initially for the yellow one, but the text was being uncooperative so I changed it around. These were fun to do, not my normal style. Inspired by the two quotes and done entirely in Photoshop. Designed to be 11 x 17 posters (I know it's a little hard to read some of the gray text at this smaller scale).

#sundayART: Shapes

My drawing for the "shapes" prompt, which has taught me that I could definitely use some tattoo drawing practice...Pencil drawing (9" x 12") scanned and colored in Photoshop. I used this lovely stock image for reference. Such a beautiful girl and a great photo!

#sundayART: Eye

This one is a little odd. It's my image for the #sundayART prompt "Eye". It's of my cousin and her fiance (although it doesn't look a thing like them! Whoops) I didn't want to do traditional eye image, and I saw a photo of them in these monster sweatshirts with big googly eyes and thought it was perfect. I started with a pencil sketch and then had no idea what to do when I went to color it. Came out ok I I said a little on the weird side. Oh well. Colored in Photoshop. A couple hours.

#sundayART: Color

So now I am not only suuuuper far behind on my #sundayART challenges, but I am also going out of order because that is where my inspiration took me. Here's my entry for "color." Portrait of a friend done in Photoshop. I picked a color palette from Design Seeds called Beaded Bright. and used only those five colors. I thought it was a really fun challenge with the palette and will probably do it again sometime because I enjoyed it so much. About 1.5 - 2 hours and lots of textures!!
