Heads up display eye effect

battlefield_soldier_eye_effect

Software: Adobe Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  PHLearn Photoshop Channel – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvQm1wuCYCQ&t=509s

The advantage of this graphic effect is two fold. Thanks to the Iron Man / Avengers movies the effect the seems futuristic, secondly the effect is easy (and quick) to do. I originally wanted to use a photo of Robert Downey Jr. / Tony Stark, but I realized that people would feel I had just grabbed an image off the Marvel website. So instead I used an image from the battlefield game.

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

I have not posted anything in a while, so I figured it was time to get something done. A poster was a natural fit (I have already done a baker’s dozen posters on this website). I saw a tutorial on the Blue LightingTV YouTube channel, well it made my desire to get something done even greater. You can see the result.

Chalk Text Effect – Rule Breaker Text

Software: Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Creating an image on a chalkboard is now very trendy. At first resturants put out a listing of their daily specials on an A-frame chalkboard. Somewhere along the line it was no loner enough to just list them with your normal hand writing. Now a chalkboard’s message had to include embellishments, fonts, text on a path and banners. Now a whole industry seems to have grown around having the best looking chalkboard outside your store.

Haunted House

Haunted House

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS CC

Tutorial: www.photoshoptutorials.ws

Halloween is over for 2014 (actually Christmas and New Year’s are also over), but a haunted house image never truly goes out of style (except for birthday and Christmas cards).

This image was a fun exercise in image editing and layer styles and adjustment layers.

Luna

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

From the number of space images I have created, I guess I have a love of space and it exploration. This image is a bit different in it is not trying to be scientifically accurate, it has a bit of a romantic feel to it. I have to admit that the colour pallet reminds me of the work David Blackwood (see http://www.davidblackwood.com/).

Ferrari Sketch

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

There has always been a bit of a battle in my mind if I like photography or illustration better. Photography can capture all the reality of a moment in crystal clarity. Illustration can strip out the unnecessary and highlight the important aspects of an image in a way that can be difficult in a photograph. So I find this Photoshop technique to be in many ways the best of both worlds.
