Baseball Card – Colourization

Baseball Card - Retro Images

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Vintage Baseball Card in Photoshop – WebpageFX

This image had a lot of cool things: colourize the image of Joe DiMaggio, use of layer styles and blending modes to make the image of Joe and Yankee Stadium seem more like an illustration, use of layer styles to “age” the final card design.

The coolest part was the colourization of the image of Joe DiMaggio. It was a bit of a surprise to me when I realized that I had rarely done a colourization of black and white images. I had done lots of changing the colour of an item in a colour photo.

Finally this image was fun to create.

I guess after three sports related images a well deserved drink is in order. Ok maybe not well deserved, but semi-deserved.

The cool thing about this image is it’s great use of splatter images (for lack of a word) as masks, backgrounds and textures. The other cool thing is that the impact of final image is definitely greater than the individual images that make up the image.

A third sports image in a row – I guess we now have a trend. What made this image creation interesting to me was the creation and using of the grid in the background. It was quick and easy, but effective – it helps make the image visually more interesting.

I guess summer is basiclly here. A good sign of that is the last two entries into the gallery have been sports images. I am not sure it is a trend, but worth taking note of.

Once again a quick and easy image to create – the best part was how easy it was to move the overlay blocks to make the image work better. This was an image that doing some fiddling paid off with much better results.
