For this one I wanted to show you roughly how I go through making my title backgrounds.
In my last post I showed you this design which I had been working on for the title background of an Arabic makeup series I want to do.
Once I’ve drawn roughly what I want I take a picture and work on it in Photoshop, I tend to make several versions of a piece till I settle on my favorite.
The first few tries are always rubbish, but after trying a few times I finally get it to look how I want it to.
Normally when I finish working on a piece I leave it alone for a few hours and then look at it again.
When you’ve been working on something for a few hours you tend to miss all the flaws and it’s only by taking a step back or getting a second opinion that you’ll see what needs improvement.
My main beef with this one is that all the patterns I had drawn had just gotten “lost”, also I wasn’t overly fond of the colour.
I wanted the colour to look like the light from a sunset in the desert on a palace wall, and this just didn’t quite cut it.
I had a similar issues with this version.
The colours were just too much and not subtle at all, also the patterns were completely lost and not as noticeable as I wanted them to be.
I finally settled on this one, I might tweak it a bit more before I use it in a video but overall it’s got the feel I’m looking for :)
