So I’ve started to create a poster to use in another file but I’m a bit stuck. I thought about creating a maze or something like that but the filesize will be larger and larger. I have my own bokek textures, sparks, and leaves but as I’ve said, I’m stuck. Any suggestions and would there be interest in a file like this?

The file is huge, about 8161W x 12071H at 300DPI so I’ll definitely need to downsize it as GR has a filesize limit.

GR has a 500mb filesize limit, You can save yourself up to 70% space by turning off the layers before exporting.

Pretty hard to say, and geez, that’s LARGE ! Haha. Anyways.. I always think about what I’m going to create and when I get stuck I just throw around some shapes, filters and such to see where that takes me. It’s your file, so you have to have some idea behind this creation? It looks nice to me, and I would just continue using those lines to make some kind of ‘maze’ as described. I did a small test, something like this:

It’s crappy, but I didn’t had the source file :) But, something like that, but more lines and less static, but more dynamic placements. Good luck!

@Arik, just tried that but doesn’t work. Seemed like a good tip though!

@RZDESIGN, I didn’t have any real idea behind it, I just wanted to create a poster for my poster frame template haha! I did have something similar in mind like your mock-up but in my opinion, it gets too crowded. Currently I’m trying to convert it to a festival poster but maybe I’ll create 2 versions.

Haha, ah well. No problem! Good luck tho. I still think you should try something with that ‘maze’ thing, but less crowded then! :)
