Viking Style Text

Viking_text

Software: Adobe Photoshop CC

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

I have to admit, text images are fun to do. For the most part text images are relativity easy to do, don’t take too long to complete, and the effects can be very effective.

The choice of this image almost seems preordained. I recently started watching the Vikings television show, I saw a poster for the same show at a transit station, and I found this tutorial online. I will file it under fate.

Silhouette Movie Poster

Composite_With_Silhouettes_1

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks for Designers

I guess June is movie poster month, this is the fifth movie poster style graphic posting.
This image features a silhouette a pretty common and useful graphic staple – think the early ipod posters/commercials. But unlike the standard all black silhouette (or one colour silhouette), this design features  an image inset inside the silhouette. A great way to bring some impact to a design, and fairly easy to do in Photoshop.

Vendetta Movie Poster

Vendetta

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks for Designers

This image is good example of the power of levels, layer adjustments and what can be done with a few nondescript background images. Only the image of assassin – I know a major part of the final image – was a specialty image. The background image was a very average urban street image taken on a bright, dry day. A few layer and level adjustments and the image is one of danger and foreboding on a wet and rainy night.
Pretty cool if you think about it.

This image is the result of my last image, the exploding planet. After reviewing the YouTube tutorial, a list of recommended videos come up. In the list was one on how to make a sun and I decided to do this one next.

Colour Eye

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

I can’t say how many times I have seen this effect done – it seems to be a standby for all print houses that want to say “we have an eye for colour” (or color if you are from the U.S). Despite being over done in print publications, the image is effective.

It occurred to me that I had never done this image. I decided to give it a try, and it worked. Actually it was amazingly simple to do. I think it took about 5 min. It definitely falls in the “easy-to-do, but very effective” group of special effects.
