Creating a Graphite & Watercolor Poster in Photoshop
You may have noticed that fine arts have been making their way into graphic design in a big way over the last few years. Graphite, watercolor, acrylics, and scanned-in textures are sprouting up everywhere, even corporate design (historically the last group to the party). I personally love the look of graphite and find myself emulating the look of my trusty 3H pencil quite a bit. But when I was commissioned to create a poster for a local band, I decided that I would attempt to create almost all of the elements by hand, and composite them all together using Photoshop.
