High thought about the future is inseparable from the mind of a man. It’s the dreams that define his character. And hence, holds an important place in shaping up his expectations. Rupinder Singh attempts to interpret this relationship between a man and his expectations in a surrealist manner through his poster, Live your Dream.

Step 1

Started sketching in Illustrator. It’s best for drawing geometric shapes. Took reference from a few crystal images to understand basic shape, texture and angles of a crystal.

Step 2

Created random collage of cloud images in Photoshop. Imported the Illustrator file (crystal outline file) into this Photoshop document. Cut a cloud image into fragments with a layer mask and the Magic Wand tool (W). Used the line work/outline layer to make the selection and hide the part of the image that needs to go.

Step 3

Repeated the previous steps to get an overall image similar to this. After all the areas were filled, merged all those layers to lower the file size. Left it for a while and created a new file in Photoshop for background design.

Step 4

Created the background using few high-resolution stock images such as, green field, an old man and few clouds that gave a dramatic look to the sky.

Step 5

Arranged all those stock images in different layers and made them black and white. Deleted the extra sky on the field image using a very soft brush and replaced it with the more dramatic and textured sky.

Step 6

Imported that giant crystal and adjusted its highlights and shadows using Image>Adjustments>Curves. The design was almost done. Added some details like lights, shadows and textures.

Step 7

Made two copies of the crystal and placed them on two different sides. Added some Gaussian blur to make them look out of focus. This would create depth in the design. Also created shadows wherever required.

Step 8

Added reflection and shine using white coloured normal round brush with 0% hardness and 100% opacity.

Step 9

Created light strokes of around 50% opacity and placed them wherever required. This added details and depth to the design.

Step 10

Created one curves adjustment layer and adjusted highlights and shadows.

Step 11

Created a new layer just below the light and shine layers and added the above texture to it. Scaled it to fit the canvas and changed its layer property to ‘Soft Light’. Got that vibrant coloured texture.

Step 12

Created a new layer and filled it with blue colour. Changed its layer property to ‘Exclusion’. This gave a cold temperature to the image.

Step 13

Added text on the top. Final image

Usually, the idea of working on the creative front for a Government project is not welcomed by many studios. But Lopez Design has accepted the challenges that come along with these big scale projects and have been successful in carrying out the same.

Branding For National Impact

India a globe in itself with a population of almost 1.4 billion, it is important to create experiences that belong to us. Design is about people and the Government is the largest client in context to the impact it creates – it is an opportunity to design for millions. Taking on a Government project replaces the notion that design is for an elitist audience with the idea of design being for the masses.

A Rigorous Process

Government projects involve tedious processes – right from extensive documentation to verification of credentials and adherence to formal guidelines. Nevertheless, this struggle needs to be done to get recognition from the Government – that good design is important and can make a difference.

 

Studio Lopez Designs’ first major project was identity and branding, communication collaterals, website design, social media and signage for Bihar Museum, with biggest challenges being dealing with the bureaucracy at the administrative level and getting payments and approvals sanctioned. Patience and persistence are the secrets to move forward in such kinds of projects.

A Measured Gamble that Pays Off

A client picks Lopez Design recognising the potential and brand value. Equally, we take the initiative to bid for Government projects as the prospect of designing for a larger audience outweighs the tedium of administrative processes and other risks. Because of our rigorous and thorough design process, we usually get it right the first time, rarely facing opposition, in spite of going through the many levels of authority.

 

Under the umbrella of UNICEF, we were commissioned to do the branding of the Health and Wellness Centers of the Ayushman Bharat program.

Indian Designers Can be Catalysts

We have garnered achievements largely by pushing boundaries and rising against the stereotypical application of design. Making the design, region and nation specific and addressing the character, language and behaviour, imparting an authentic feel to the design.

 

In Ayushman Bharat, the branding program was about painting the walls of 1.5 lakh local primary health care centers. Creating a national brand and yet a local brand was an achievement by which each HWC has its own unique character. By allowing people the creative power in execution, they became catalysts in the design process.

Simplicity and Creativity in Implementation

Sometimes following standard design practice and providing all specifications falls flat. In the Ayushman Bharat project, created a system with an element of creativity: a simple brand manual with 3 to 4 steps to bring a level of consistency and giving ownership to people at the ground level. This worked wonders and yielded beautiful results. People took responsibility and delivered within the time period. Leaving implementation to the people was a bold and necessary step, but was successful.

 

These projects outshine many corporate projects because of their scale and reach. It was a moment to take pride in our design process as it is making a difference to the nation.

Every one of us responds to emotions in our own personal ways. But for all of us, it is an explosion. Sometimes it is expressed through an outburst, at other times, it just submerges within. Every time we explode, we lose a little bit of us. Digital Artist Fahd Hussein captures a moment in that explosion to create his piece, ‘Extraho’.

Step 1

Found a collection of stock textures on the net that would be the building blocks for the image. Found a wall texture and smoke/ ink in water shot.

Step 2

Dug out stock images of a broken egg shell and a jelly fish. These would be part of the visual elements to be used.

Step 3

Picked out an expressive face from T-gar’s stock collection on deviantart.com to create the ‘protagonist’ of the piece. Arranged the model’s face on top of the texture and erased out enough to force a seamless blend. Colour-toning the image helped in setting the mood. The green was chosen to give it a little ‘creep’ factor.

Step 4

Time to explode the face. Chopped off the eggshell and placed it to fit the contours of the face.

Step 5

Added some shading and colour to get the depth. Air-brushing helped to get the desired effect.

Step 6

Blended in some cracked earth/ peeling paint textures for stress marks where the face exploded.

Step 7

Took the smoke/ ink pic and masked it out to get the ‘hot smoke’ feel. Blended it in Screen mode to get the desired effect.

Step 8

Took a couple of the jellyfish pics, inverted, huerotated and curve-adjusted the jelly out of them till they looked adequately ominous.

Step 9

Took another one of T-Gar’s lovely face shots and placed them in line with the flow of the jellyfish body.

Step 10

Masked out the extra bits and did the usual blend-mode/ colour correction routine till it started looking natural.

Step 11

Did this for multiple jellyfish till a swarm was created.

Step 12

Placed it all together. The finished piece started taking shape a little.

Step 13

Added appropriate shading to get depth. Some ink-splats and similar textures were added to enhance the ‘creep’ factor. A liquid spurt on the head, some spot colour and final colour-toning signed it off.

Step 14

Got the final image.

To be a success story, one needs to dedicate and devote two hundred percent from your heart and of course, be blissful at heart. Alicia Souza is one such example to know about and be inspired from.

Alicia Souza

Sometimes, things don’t move as they are planned. Whatever has to happen, happens and there is definitely something good in it. So is the case with Alicia Souza.

The Inception

The reason she started illustrating as a freelancer was because she needed to pay rent. She feels like she didn’t intentionally get into the place that she is in today but rather fell into it with circumstances at hand and the choices she made. Alicia moved to India to illustrate and her style evolved into the style she uses primarily today. Setting up the online store came after massive demands started flowing in for it.

Launching her own studio, Aliciasouzastudio has been her biggest responsibility. Even after time constraints restricting her from visiting the studio often, she makes sure to communicate with her wonderful team working there through instant messages and collates information via spreadsheets. She also has a partner taking care of the studio.

Fate and Fortune

Alicia is one lucky person to have destiny on her side! She didn’t set out to establish her brand with competition in mind, she started it because there was a need and she wanted to fulfill that.

 

The basic idea of starting out, let her live without any competition pressure and keeps her grounded because she is true to her work and does not look in any other direction than her own path. She believed in herself and her work, and considered it as a case of ‘I’ll take this as far as it will go’ and it’s still going!

A liking for funny characters and a special love for drawing cartoons seems to have just seeped into her work. From drawing many different characters in the past, Alicia now prefers telling stories and incidents via the ones that imitate her life in a way. Whether that character be her husband or her cute little dog go, she converses with those characters in her own style

Promotional Planning

Alicia feels that it is important to market oneself and these days with the choices of avenues available for marketing, it sometimes becomes confusing to decide the one which would do maximum justice to the promotional work.

 

She chose the platforms of Facebook and Instagram to promote her work as she felt the most comfortable using them and she knew she was going to stick to them. Also, she tried some other ways of promoting her brand and they too proved to be successful for her like Amazon, Happy Wagon, a retail and online store founded by aliciasouzastudio as well. She also has an online store on Etsy.com under the name, ‘Alicia Souza UK’ which is handled by a team based in the UK.

Alicia does not have a success mantra, but she firmly believes in the concept of trial and error. She does not follow trends, instead does what makes her smile and hopes that it will get a smile on other faces as well!

 

From her experience, Alicia suggests not to over-think, to work hard, be humble and enjoy the process.

Fashion photography blends commercial photography and fine arts. After you understand the communication objective, it is important to understand the role of different elements as well to fix the final frame. Fashion Photographer Omkar Chitnis shares few techniques and insights that help in getting a visually dynamic fashion frame.

Choosing the Subject

The process starts with the subject. It can be a model, a product, a service, anything. The other elements should be used to support it. Magnification of the shot comes next. For example, if you are shooting for a clothing brand, you need to take a full-length shot. If you are shooting for makeup, you have to take a close-up shot. The background is a very important aspect of any picture. It enables you to complete the image.

Fashion Photography

Planning the Frame

Unlike Landscape photography, in fashion, you design a shot and accordingly go about models, magnification, poses, lighting, etc. The kind of lights, the distance at which they are placed, the shutter speed, the aperture etc. everything makes for the final frame. Keep in mind two key factors, the amount of light and the expected temperature of the image. Also, in the post-production, temperature and tones of the picture should be adjusted accordingly to justify the picture.

Choosing the Tone

There’s a vast difference in lighting for colour and black&white images. While shooting in colour, tone and intensity of colours matter whereas in black&white, grayscale of the colours matter. Some tones may look interesting in colour but flat in black&white. So, as a photographer, understanding the grayscale of every colour is important. Thus, clothes, accessories, background and even the hair colour of the model matters in a black&white shoot. Capturing a frame in colour and then making it a black&white is a wrong technique

Setting the Context

Expression and attitude of the model is really important to make an impact. But since fashion photography is also about clothing, you need to ensure clothes are not getting blurred or losing the colours, details etc. Make up and model should compliment the clothes, the subject of the shoot. Keeping the lighting soft gives soft results, retaining the softness of the skin and expressions.

Creating the Mood

Sometimes, shooting in low shutter speed helps you create depth and mood, being helped by a little-blurred hair. Shooting men is different from shooting women. One should decide the look of the model – sexy, confident, soft or blunt. Lighting comes to play here. Generally, a bit of contrast works in men’s shoot to enhance the sharp features. It’s important to understand the anatomy, nature and character of the personality. When features are a bit blunt, bright lighting helps you enhance the features and hide the flaws. Similarly, high contrast lighting creates drama.

Shooting in the Open

Outdoor photography is a different task altogether. If you are using only sunlight, you will have to be very precise about the time, the angle of the light and the location. A study of the light source helps you a lot. Sometimes you can use sunlight as a key light and use flashlights or continuous lights to fill the excess shadows or vice verse. When you shoot in just sunlight, background matters a lot. Remember to not let it overpower the model at all. If need be, light up the natural background as well.

Adding the Elements

Many a times, the fabric on the model creates drama. Keeping the overall image dark makes it more interesting. And a blurred background creates a nice depth. Using backlight can create a nice dimension. Having a bit blurry foreground creates mood in the picture.

Presenting it Perfect

After selecting the final shot, colour correction is a very important step. Just a tinge of colour helps you create a different mood altogether. Cropping the picture is also an important part. While shooting you should know what to shoot, but you should also know what should be kept and done away with while editing.

The world is a beautiful and balanced composition of humans and animals where currently an imbalance has been created between the two. Rohan Dahotre has translated his love for animals into illustrations in an attempt to create awareness and restore this balance.

An unhindered interest to watch animal documentaries and amazed by the behaviour of animals, Rohan names Nature as his biggest inspiration in life and accredits it for where he stands today in his professional career of being an illustrator, specifically illustrating animals.

An animal lover by nature, Rohan studies and observes animals in terms of their form, characteristics, behaviour, colour, patterns, texture and habitat. With an aim to make people aware about the existence of these creatures and the beauty that lies within them, he took to drawing animal portraits.

Inspired by tribal art in general and African doodles lately, Rohan began experimenting with doodles of tribal patterns on photographs of animals in the wild. An extremely positive response to his first doodled-Rhino on social media motivated him to the extent that he created an entire series based on tribal art doodle on animals.

Living for Animals!

Describing himself as a versatile artist, Rohan tries out different kinds of styles. He is of the opinion that using the tools of pen and ink help him in strengthening the foundations of his of artworks and keeping his basics in place.

 

The excellency of his skills earned him an opportunity to doodle for Google and work with WWF, the World Wildlife Fund.

Challenge Yourself, Go Beyond!

Not such a big fan of type art, he still took up the challenge of ’36 days of type’ only for his love towards animals and came up with a series called “Owlfabets”, owls in alphabets, drawing owls, keeping the style clean and minimal and yet not losing the identity.

 

Rohan recommends the budding artists to carry a sketchbook everywhere they go as inspiration can be found in the bizarrest of the places and then comes the need to have a place to pour that thought onto.

The future is full of endless possibilities. Create your own.
