If you will try to stare at this picture for few seconds, you should see silhouette of Red Queen head. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a poster using the Pen Tool in Pixelmator, mixed with some colours and textures. The whole process won’t take much time and I hope you will like the outcome.
Open Pixelmator and create a new document. I’m using 700×800 pixels for the size. After that fill the Background Layer with beige color.
Take Elliptical Marquee Tool and draw oval form in the middle of document, then fill it with light beige color.
Go to Edit > Refine Selection… and choose size 20 px. After that create a new layer, fill it with beige color and put it below the layer. Then go to Edit > Deselect All.
With Pen Tool create a strip form as shown below:
Now we are going to add some shadows. Take the Pen Tool and draw them like in picture below and fill shape with dark beige color.
With Pen Tool create a cross and fill with dark grey color. Afetr that change the Opacity to 75%.
Now create a rhombus, fill it with dark red color and change the Opacity to 90%.
With Pen Tool create a heart and fill with the same dark red color, after that change Opacity to 85%.
Create a spade, fill with with dark grey color, then change Opacity to 90%.
Now we are going to add texture. Go to Layer > New Layer > Choose Picture… and choose Texture picture. After that change Blending to Overlay and Opacity to 35%.
