The task the teacher gave us was to create a poster based on an fictive cultural festival, and we did this in Gimp.
In this student work of the poster, I have been working with forms and lines. I have been focusing on humans to express motions and to communicate community. In the process I have also been working with nature, in different settings like forest, mountains, and at last I ended up with sky, and stars. The reason why I ended up with sky and stars is that I saw that the forest and mountains did not feet inn with the rest of the picture, it did not give the impression that I wanted for this poster.
I also wanted to put in a cross to express even more the purpose of the festival.
The people in the poster I cut out with a scissors tool, and the same for the cross. The background is just a layer that I put behind all of the layers.
If I was more experienced I think I would work even more on the editing of the layers. But this is what I ended up with.
This is pictures for some of the process:
And then the result of the poster:
