Hey people! Today I’d like to show you some fresh psychedelic poster art – right out of my mind! It’s a poster I did for my friends from Earth Star. What I really like about this poster is that it had to be done in a very short time and I could make it. There are different sketches and the final artwork within the post.
What I did first was a very quick and rough concept digital sketch. The name of the party is Self-Discovery so I’ve decided to depict a cyber-shaman having visions of stars and planets.
After the guys from Earth Star have accepted it I’ve drawn a detailed pencil sketch of the main character.
Usually I don’t color my sketches but my girlfriend presented me a pack of markers for my birthday and now I’m using ‘em to get a quick understanding of how a colorful image might look like. Plus sometimes there is some unexpected bleeding that might help me adding more details.
I did not stick to the colors from my sketch ’cause they looked too old-school)) more suitable for psychedelic-rock gig poster rather than a trance party. So below is the result.
Most of the artwork was hand-drawn using vector art software. Below is the list of stock I’ve used for background and planets:
