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.

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.

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.
