Wedding Posters

Mendhi poster

The design for the Mendhi poster, is the more colourful of the two pieces, due to the nature of a mendhi ceremony being full of bright and vibrant colours, primarily oranges, yellows, greens, and pinks.

This poster showcases a beautiful streamer covered pole, wrapped in the flowers similar to those that are in the ceremony, and at the very front is the bride dancing in her green dress made of intricate patterns I thought would best represent the kind of clothing to be worn without seeing her actual dress beforehand.

I kept the piece busy with all the details, and different brush strokes, and left space at the bottom to be displaying the couples names, and their event date, while its surrounded with the same flowers around the bride to keep it from feeling empty at the bottom half.

The colours, although seem like many were used, are a rotation of the colours; yellow, blue, green, and pink.

The size of the piece is upon request 18" x 27"

Nikah Poster

For the second poster, I wanted to use the colours and design to be far more minimal and give a smoother more minimal look to each area of the piece, given that this was the poster for the event of the actual marriage vows and document signing.

The design was meant to illude an emotion of peace and calmness throughout, with the floral arch, the very minimal colour palette more so than the last poster, and the piece to display both the bride and groom standing together with the writing of the date written at the bottom of the poster.

With this piece I was experimenting with the creases in the fabric for details as well as the colours blending in the background together, and learning to create almost a golden metallic shade through digital art with the linework staying messy and thin, to not take away from the minimal look of the piece.

The colour palette I had finalized were a rotation of blue, green, yellow, and brown shades for the skin tone, hair, and clothing creases.

Looking back at these two pieces, I did the best I could with the amount of experience I had up until that point within the realm of digital art. I learned a lot through this commission, and had gotten a far better handle on the brushes, colours, and techniques of digital art through working on this commission, especially under a two month deadline.

That being said, It's been some time since this poster was made, and with time my art skills have drastically improved, and there are many things I would have done differently and better had this commission taken place now rather than before.

The improvements I would make now would be found within the skin tones, detail work, typography, and the stiffness of the poses.

In the beginning of my digital art journey, skin tones were not something I knew how to recreate within the program like I did through traditional materials, so the tones in the pieces do not showcase the depth and complexity found in the tones of the bride and groom, making it feel as though it wasn't as reflective of the real life couple.

If given the chance to, I would put in in far more details to the piece, and created a much better flow of body language within both pieces, so that the bride and groom don't look stiff like statues.

To help with the movement in the piece, changes in linework would have helped in creating depth that was needed, as well as consulting a graphic design guide on typography when choosing the fonts so that they don't look like they were chosen at random or unrelated to the piece as they do in these posters.

All in all, the two posters are pieces I am proud of even with that hindsight, given that they were made at the very beginning of my learning digital mediums.
