Motocross Grunge Style

Phone World

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

This image shows how a reasonable, but not great image can be turned into something rather effective. In this case the final image could be easily a basis for a motocross event poster. Using layer styles, brushes and layer masks the blue splatter behind the main image is quickly created.

Phone World

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  3D Mobile Effect – Tutorials Junction

When I saw this tutorial the first thing that popped in my mind is “Alice in Wonderland” meets the mobile digital world. I liked how I was able to merge the images together despite a major differences in tone of the images.

Transparent Shirt effect

Torn Paper Portrait

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  See Through Clothes Effect – Tutorials Junction

This image is a bit misleading – to get this image done the main transparent cloth effect is rather easy to do, but the little touches that makes it really works took about half of the production time. As it can be guessed making and blending modes does most of the heavy lifting. It is colour curves and displacement layers that make the final image work.

Torn Paper Portrait

Tutorial:  Torn Paper Portrait with Photoshop – Blue Lighting

A quick an easy Photoshop effect, in this case using the power of layer styles and smart objects. The use of the layer styles gives the face image it’s colour / black & white locations (helped along with a mask). The power of the smart objects is in that it allows the face image to be changes quickly. In the case shown below it took less than 2 minutes (sort of cool).

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.

Whisky on the Rocks

Blended Images - Dual Threat

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

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.

World Cup – Blended Patterns and Images

Blended Images - Dual Threat

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

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.
