Project: Pattern and Symbol Landscape
Medium: Digital Art
Type: Class project
Created: April 2018
During the spring of 2018, I had to create this poster for one of my college classes (Digital Illustration). For this project, I looked at various stock photos of oceanic scenery (via Stocksnap) an inspiration for creating the ocean–and all that inhabit it– via Adobe Illustrator
For elements of nature (e.g. trees, grass, rocks), I used the ellipse tool, as well as the pucker-and-bloat effect, to modify the shapes into different symbols and experimented with the texture effects to create different textures for different elements in my landscape image. The palm trees, in particular, have some textures to make them pop out of the background more.
Here is a screenshot of my Illustrator work:
