Time is on your side

March 4th, 2010 by admin | Posted in Competition Entries, Photoshop Magazine   No Comments »

Hi!  This month has started out busy in work.

And at home I decided to go for another competition.

In the Advanced Photo-shop magazine there is a competition to make a

T-shirt .  So I gave it a go and as usual have learnt a few more tricks in

Photo-shop during the process.

I gathered things that I thought would be trends in April, such as the weather,

Steam-punk Art, etc…

Then using the blue palette given by the competition I made my entry.

It’s not my usual style as it was completely freehand drawing as this was

the only way I could be sure I kept to the colour palette – but I was happy with

the result. And after I thought of a title for the T-shirt I decided last minute to place the

words on the T-shirt. One of those happy accidents Artists have all the time.

So let me know what you think or if you have any news or suggestions.

Oh and by the way – the model used for the T-shirt isn’t anyone I know and definately not me with those

hairy arms…..lol

Little white lies

February 27th, 2010 by admin | Posted in Competition Entries, Movies   No Comments »

Another photo-shop competition. This one was for Photo-shop Daily.

The brief was to make a poster for Ricky Gervais’ film ‘The Invention of Lying’.

I enjoyed the film. I haven’t heard the competition results yet. I’ll let you know

if I win anything. If you don’t hear from me it’s because I lost and am sulking….

If nothing else comes of it I learnt how to do text in Photo-shop and that after

playing about with Ricky Gervais’ head for a few hours he actually becomes

very attractive…..

I see you !

Yes, this month I have fallen for the hype and I have been to see the movie ‘Avatar’ in the cinema.

And to my surprise it was a brilliant film, well worthy of the hype.

There were men watching the movie that had obviously been dragged there by their

family kicking and screaming that were crying through the whole film.

How wonderful and fun it must have been to work on that film. What a dream job.

Anyway you can guess that my January image is going to be an Avatar – after all

you tube is bombarded with Artists showing how to make yourself into a blue

giant so why should I be any different?  So here is my attempt at making an Avatar

from an image of Beyonce – because she looks like she could be a beautiful one

and I hope they write her into the next film – well there has to be sequel – its a box

office hit that has already made a fortune. And I’m not complaining for once,

despite my hate of sequels I can’t wait to see Pandora in 3D again…..

Stage one – I chose an image of Beyonce

Stage two – I cropped and cleaned up the image

Stage three – I turned her blue

Stage four – A bit of remodelling of the eyes ,

cheekbones , nose and lips

Stage five -  Those yellow eyes

Stage six – after some details are added  the finished Avatar of Beyonce.

Please let me know your thoughts – this is not meant as a tutorial as I’m a Photoshop

novice, I’m just showing you how I made this image , so any tips or suggestions on

how to improve my technique are welcome.

Drowning in work!

November 23rd, 2009 by admin | Posted in Competition Entries, Photoshop Magazine   1 Comment »

November has been a busy month for me so far in work. I have had a lot of images to

do for a new business website. On the bright side I have learned a lot more about

Photoshop in the process through my usual trial and error strategy.

I also learn a lot from the Photoshop Creative website.

Each month I try to enter their competition as it forces me to try out

new techniques.

Here is my latest entry called ‘Beneath the Water’, 

I have learned that it is best to change the colour of the person before

adding it to the background or else the background will also change colour

- so here I changed the person to blue then added it to the background.

Bubbles were made using the lightening and darkening tool.

Let me know what you think or post your tips for me.

Zero the hero – ine!

October 19th, 2009 by admin | Posted in Competition Entries, Movies, Sci - Fi   1 Comment »

Hello! This October ‘O’ or ‘Zero’ was created.

Zero is a character I have made for the new ’9′ film Elfwood competition .

Zero is unique. She is a child . Always loud, brash and the naughtiest of the rag dolls , Zero often ends

up down in the dumps, head in hand with an anguished cry of ‘it’s not fair!!’.

Occasionally she pins her safety pin ears together across her face in a sulk.

But she is also very sensitive and cute.

 - I’m looking forward to viewing the other
