Content: Brushes

When an artist use Photoshop to draw, there are so many brushes to be chosen, this chapter is talk about how to choose the brushes.

I put the brushes on the final work, to explain which brush I used on every part of the picture.

Font selection

I use Corbel, a san-serif font with my infographic, because the texts are only for titles, like the fonts in advertisements.

 

As the name states, ‘sans serif’ fonts are fonts without serifs. While some sources say sans-serif fonts have existed since the 5th century BC, it wasn’t until the 1920s that they became somewhat popular – mostly being used in advertisements.

Main color of infographic

I use black, light grey and champagne gold as the background color, because my illustration is colorful enough, I don’t want it be more colors here, so I choose black and light grey.

The reason of using champagne gold is because there are two robot characters in my illustration, and they are made by metal, I want to use champagne gold to present the material and it is suitable with other colors.

The light grey part will occupy most of the infographic.

The strengths of this infographic is showing the process step by step, the audiences can see every steps of the final work and read the description texts to learn.  But there are also some difficulties for new learners to learn from the infographic because it didn’t tell anything about the preparation of digital drawing.
