10.2 Sailboat Rogata

Sailboat Rogata

This project began with, what is a sailboat rogata. I wasn't sure so I looked it up. A sailboat rogata is a sailboat race. I had to make an illustration of the rogata and create a poster of it, using only the imagery as the only form of communication, graphic symbolism. So I used an image of a sailboat as reference then illustrated it using illustrator. Then I brought it into photoshop to add color. I decided to use different colors for the boats to represent that they were opposing teams. I added a orange sky background to set a mood of a day coming to end, then added the lake as a final touch to add to the realism of the poster. Over all a simple but rewarding illustration.
