anyone know how to get make wonderful pink/green/purple/blue blobby gradient things?
artist: David Rudnick
also "get make" is a #hot&trendy new MFA design term yall probably haven't heard of..
This image makes more sense to me than the top. Looks like a basic gradient with some object effects like inner glow. Perhaps a transparent gradient on top as well for the light blue side effects. That's my guess.
Yeah, this is definitely a gradient mesh from Illustrator. If I had to guess, I'd even wager the external glow in the second one isn't a glow effect like >>250733 said, but just more gradient mesh points - note how it changes color to a deeper green in some places, or gets a harder edge near the N in Heaven.
haven't you heard that quote "Nothing that's worthwhile is ever easy."
other than this i wasn't able to find any:
Anyone know a good way to get the "photograph of a printed poster" look?
On a lot of his work there's that white glare on the top and bottom, and slight on the top left side usually. Must be an overlay he developed. Brushing it on? or is that a better way
This is some really good shit actually, guess it's time to re-learn that stupid gradient mesh tool
enlight us op, also explain to us why Yale mfas are all nerds obsessed with 90's mech animes
It's literally just a picture of a print dude
I'm pretty sure it's not a picture of a print. If you check out his website and look at more of his flyer work they all have pretty much the same reflective moments on the page.
Regardless, it would be cool to synthesize the effect. Any ideas?
Yeah definitely not a print. I'm sure he has the template since they're all exactly alike. I had no other ideas than to just apply paper/poster textures and draw out the flares with glows. It's trickier than I thought but I did a quick mock up of what I mean. Needless to say it didn't turn out that good but it'd just be my idea of achieving that.
