China Open, a professional tennis tournament would like a flat portrait of a tennis player for their advertisement. The portrait may be used for a poster, brochure, website, wall, etc.
Primary – A more artistic advertisement usually is directed more towards a younger audience + Tennis fans
Secondary – Attract people aesthetically to engage in tennis
Improve a form of advertisement aesthetically through imagery
Present proper information on the tournament
Include notable players competing for the tournament
The illustrations are very detail based and time-consuming
Before beginning the design, I’ve visited several sites to find similar styles of design to what I am doing, all three artworks demonstrate a realistic element blended with implements from the artist. The first artwork gave me a very good example of hair, as the level of detail is not too minimal or extreme and gives a very good representation of the hairstyle of the character. The second artwork is a good example of the detail in the artwork, the character shows good depth through the way the clothing is shaded. The last piece of artwork also gives a good example of shading on the character, but it gives a better example as it also shows the hair and face of the character.
