In today’s tutorial I’m going to take you through the step by step process I used to create a dark outer space themed poster named Lunar. The artwork combines textures and vector geometric elements to produce an intense layout showing off the beauty of the moon with high tech sci-fi style markings. We’ll be using both Photoshop and Illustrator to make the most of their different capabilities and combine the two different types of artwork into one cool design.
The design we’ll be creating uses a mix of heavy grainy textures and clear sharp vector elements to produce a cold dark poster based on the moon. We’ll use Illustrator’s powerful shape tools to easily create a series of intricate geometric elements which we’ll paste over to Photoshop in order to assemble the complete artwork.
