I made my portrait using the app, Procreate, on iPad with apple pencil. I initially used a lot of texture and lighting brushes to create a background for my portrait. Then I use the selection tool to select an area as the portrait’s hair and fill the area with air brush tools.
I created texts and decorations on the portrait also using the selection tool. After I selected the area, I firstly filled the area with darker color, then I added white highlights to create a 3D effect using air brush tool.
Finally, I used the RGB curve tool to adjust the color of the whole picture. My use of this tool increase the contrast of colors and created a more striking look to the picture.
After I finished my portrait, I created another background using texture brushes for my poster. I inserted my portrait into the file and used the distortion tool to distort the edge of my portrait. Then, I created text showing my different names in different scenarios using selection tool and air brush tool as how I made my portrait.
The style of the poster is an abstract and fantasy style that present my personality and my art style. I added text in different style and shape of my different names including english name, artist name, online name, imaginary name, primary school name to show my multi identity as student, artist, and online citizen in China. My use of textures and color of blue, pink, and purple creates a dreamy impression to my poster, which also connects to my personal imaginary world. I can improve my poster on making the portrait a little less abstract so that the audience can recognized my face.
