This work is an advertisement poster for the Vertex Music Festival I made in my illustration graphic design class. The experience of the festival is like being in a mystical laser show in the deep mountain woods where you connect with nature through music.
So to emulate this experience in the poster, I started by sampling the Buena Vista mountains (which is the location of the venue). Then I stylized the hills and created a starfield in order to depict the look of the concert. I made the deer spirit and the star field in photoshop by using custom brushes, rendering noise, difference clouds, and drawing out feathered selection areas with the lasso tool. Lastly, I mixed the images all together into one composition and organized the poster text to show the venue details.
