The CAMP Festival is back this year and for those who doesn't know. It's a creative technology conference happening in Calgary, Canada. For 2015 edition, they will have speakers such as Aaron Draplin, Shantell Martin, Yuko Shimizu, Zander Brimijoin and not least Neil Huxley. Gotta check them out! In Bram's Words OK, so maybe camping is not everyone’s cup of tea. The annoying mosquitos are constantly after you, and curious grizzly bears are breathing down your neck, not to mention the lack of showers and abundance of greasy hot dogs your mom would scold you for eating.
World Collabs 4 Winning Entry Tutorial by Mat Macquarrie
Hello and welcome, this is a quick tutorial on how I created my poster concept for the World Collabs 4 competition. The tricky thing about planning a tutorial like this is, I created the elements with the 3D shapes from Joao Oliveira.
As a quick intro to this read, A World Collabs poster begins with one designer supplying some elements and the second designer adding to those elements to create a completed poster. My goal was to use the elements supplied by the collaborator as much as possible in creating my piece. For these steps, all I did was take the shapes, expand and rotate them to start forming my robot and it's environment. Later I pasted a robotic eye that I created for a previous project. A link to a separate tutorial detailing how I made the robotic eye can be found at the bottom of this page.
I started by trying to frame the environment for the face to hover in. I flipped the shapes around to create what I called a rubber-room effect on the sides. Then I just started layering shapes one at a time until the robot started to take shape.
Once the robot was complete, I added a glow effect on the upper left of the skull-plate. I selected a wide circle brush and set the hardness to 0 and 70% flow and threw a quick dot and set it's layer style to Linear-dodge.
Final ResultI figured the blue/black colour palette would be pretty popular among other entries so I wanted to change it to something else. I opened channel mixer and tweaked it until the dark blues turned to the gold/plum colour that I have now. Then I just layered a quick title and a signature and I'm done.
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
