Argentinean graphic designer and illustrator Gustavo Brigante ushers in the second season of fotolia’s TEN Collection. Gustavo Brigante offers a composition on the Work theme, entitled “Manos a la obra “, which translates as “Let’s get to to work”.
The artist found inspiration in his latin-american origins, to come out with this work. “Digital art and graphism are a way to innovate and impress, especially when it comes to free compositions,” he explains. “I can therefore let a part of me express itself. I accepted to take part in this project because I am self-educated myself. From my point of view, the best way to learn is to practice, and persevere.”
A personal work, with Latin-American influences Brigante chose the theme he wanted then he searched for the ideal visual to make his creation. “It was easy to find the photos of my choice on Fotolia,” he explains. “As I neared the end of this work I needed one additional photo. I took advantage of my encounter with the TEN team to organise a shooting session, in which the cameraman took part as a model. I then imported his photo into Photoshop. To obtain graphic consistency, I managed a few adjustments of colours, shades and exposition, without damaging the original image. This allowed me to bring together stock images from Fotolia, and personal photos. As for the methods and tools I used, I chose those in Photoshop and 3D, which enabled me to add another dimension to my work. The last step was to integrate the shadows of it various elements.
