Here is a slight idea i had for the front cover of the creative review magazine.
So what i was going to do and did is get a picture of a guy wearing some well known steampunk styled fashioned cloths and for example i got this image.
And with that image is that i vectorised and made the guy wearing the clothes look like a cartoon style drawing. I think this style that I’m going down will be good for my portfolio and good for the front cover of the creative review magazine. the reason why i used the colour green in the background is because the main colours when i think of steampunk is brown, green, gold, black, grey, etc. From this idea i will develop more interesting and better ideas to eventually create my final piece for the front cover design. i think the cartoon/vectorised image is more interesting than the normal stock image. Ignore the text at the bottom as i was experimenting with different text and 3d elements to see what fits the steampunk style.
