I have to ask why you didn't use illustrator? Do you hate the people who are going to have to work with this, when it's printed?

Do you just not know Illustrator? It's fine if you don't, not going to be a dick, but this kind of work is what Illustrator was designed for, and if they want to repurpose the art, your workload would be so much easier if it were vectors. Plus, you'd never have to worry about maintaining sharpness, or having the colors shift enlarging or reducing the image.
I mean, great work, but it's time to learn Illustrator. Instead of a massive file, you could have one that's about a meg in size. Then just place it in InDesign. set the type - and it prints perfectly, every time - and making adjustments and corrections and modifications would be a LOT easier and quick.

how much money did you earn?

Good job OP. Looks comfy

pretty nice illustration and style. im hoping there is text that will go in the bottom box. maybe even around the entire border.

Trying to put together a pilot project for a redesign of my parties' visual identity. Local branch is currently in a bit of a dumpster fire so any new ideas are welcomed to get us out of the sewer and back in parliament.
It's a bit of a Catch 22 though, because I don't get a stamp from higher up approving the project and hiring a professional designer til I convince them it's a good idea. Sadly I don't have the skills to actually put the ideas out of my head and on paper.

The tl;dr of the idea is to hijack the revival of 1920s style aesthetics in advertising recently for ourselves and tie it in with the parties past as it was historically strongest in the 1912-1929 period. Try to call back to a legacy and so on. I'll post some of my work so far and what I'm aiming for.

Any c&c desperately needed. This is just s generic "muh rural communities" one.

This one is targeting recent scandals of wolf packs mauling cattle at will as farmers aren't allowed to shoot back, wolves being a protected species.

I traced it off this photo, admittedly not the best choice. Maybe adding hind legs would clear it up?

Looks good, do this in illustrator itll go 10x smoother and be 5x easier.

Nope sorry mate I'm from the other one (Slovenia). Confusing I know. Much luck in your quest.

That font is ugly as fuck. Your illustration got no texture. lines go in all directions and lead out of the picture. form contrasts are too high. That sheep looks shoddy.

Your examples are all pretty static in their composition but do play with light an shadow. Study them more carefully.

Please learn about composition.

I guess >>372303
was more like a lucky shot, since it's pretty well balanced based on the forms used, but the font is still ugly. If it's not a font but hand drawn, notice how designers used effects like shadow on the lettering to give it some sort of visual advance over all the other elements.

actually working on the communication for this theatre play based in the movie Persona, by ingmar bergman (awesome film, imo). here's a link to a small video i'm dealing with now.

https://streamable.com/2ah1a

i did the supervision and art design for the photographs, taken by a friend of mine, and also the art direction, set and costume design for the play.

in the beginning the actors asked me for a script adaptation (i also write scripts, in these days you can't stick to only one job) and i did a more contemporary/harsh vision of the play, updating the visuals and texts. but then the actors wanted something more similar to the movie, more poetic and dreamy.

then i wanted to respect the original look of the communication and to use the original font of the original poster (pic related), but the play director is kind of stubborn and wanted something more "updated".

so i'm playing now with some non serif fonts that don't convince me at all, since they don't relate with the spirit of the play.

looks good but the length of the pinky finger is bugging me a lot. i think it's a bit too short

I'm racking my brains on how I should portray a LAN visually in a video game. I think an isometric perspective would be cool.

The "2020" is way too fucking generic. Not bland, generic. (it's a good choice to have a simple font so it doesn't overshadow the bigger text, but you didn't have to use goddamn Arial nigger)

I’ve seen much worse. At leat the ordering makes sense.

I don't care about layer management, I want to know why this wasn't done in Illustrator.
