A quick warm up trying out some techniques of form, but also a statement about the growing jumble of American values under the current administration.
Love the sense of depth! Really nice composition.
A beautiful piece!
Also, I would love to see a tutorial on this.
It's actually just an Illustrator file to begin with, all flat fills, with main red, white and blue colors, and then slightly darker versions of those colors to make the differing tonal planes. Then I popped it over to PhotoShop and did a dissolve air brush along the edges to make them gritty and gradated. Then an overall yellowed paper texture on top of everything to unify it.
I love this, Paul! Beautiful image, technique and message!
