I created these 3 posters purely from inspiration of the World Cup and 3 players for me who have stood out. There are a lot of great footballing artworks around at the moment so I thought I would try my hand at creating my own. I hope you enjoy.
This past week I discovered some great vintage images online coloured by various artists across the globe and it was something I really wanted to give a go. Having scoured the web for some historic black and white images I came across the 'Lunch atop a Skyscraper' image which was a perfect starting place to begin, it’s an iconic picture and I’ve only ever seen it in Black and White. Having looked across the internet a few artists have done various colour versions but I was keen not to just copy a style already done.
The second James Hunt image I came across on Historical Pics twitter account (you can follow them over at @HistoricalPics) and although the image wasn’t a great resolution, it captured what I wanted to achieve when coloured.
The third was an image I found when looking for Historic Images on google, it’s an iconic image from the Vietnam war and in all honesty didn’t take too long to do and I’m pleased with the outcome.
Hopefully I’ll be adding more of these images soon and I might even advertise to restore and colour client images also so get in touch if you have an old family photo you would like to see restored or coloured!
I've just completed another tutorial from the brilliant Chris Spooner's webpage, Spoon Graphics. I think the tutorial was posted last year and I somehow missed it.
As usual with Chris' work he explains everything really well step by step. I wanted to take a slightly different stance with my piece and focused on somewhere I had been before.
You can find the tutorial here, Create a Trendy Retro Cityscape Design in Photoshop and you can also follow Chris on twitter @chrisspooner where he often updates with tutorials and inspiration.
Another day, another tutorial!
This time it's another one from Chris Spooner's Blog over at Spoon Graphics. Chris decided to share with us his technique to create an event poster for his Stag Do.
As I am attending a friend of mine's stag do this year, Chef Daniel Catford, I decided I would follow Chris' great step by step tutorial.
The tutorial uses both Photoshop and Illustrator to create, I did veer slightly off tangent at times but managed to keep in line with what was needed for certain effects!
I'm a little disappointed that I didn't choose a slightly better image to clip for the Quad Biker as it has pixelated slightly but overall I'm happy with the outcome and as it's just for fun I won't get hung up on it too much.
Today I have followed a great tutorial from Chris Spooner over at Spoon Graphics on how to create this poster effect and personally I love the outcome and will try it out again on a number of different pictures I have in the future.
The process is very simple to follow and would be great for CD covers or posters alike. The photo itself I had to edit using some of the filters and actions spoken about in my last blog post.
You can find the tutorial post here at Chris' site, try it yourself!!
I have been experimenting with some Photoshop Effects for some pictures I took on our Honeymoon at Disneyworld last summer.
The effects I have chosen give a real Retro look to the pictures which is great. I would love to, one day, get a proper camera and get into photography myself. For now though, I will carry on with the editing side!!
_Today I followed a nice tutorial from Sterling-based Designer Steven Bonner about adding depth to your work using Illustrator and Photoshop.
This technique involves using Vector shapes and graphics to create the outlines you want and then taking that into Photoshop to add the depth to your piece.
Steven realises that the depth effects can, quite rightly, be done in Illustrator but there tends to be some noticeable 'lag' in the time it takes to produce, so doing it in Photoshop is a much more, pain free, way of producing it.
The tutorial itself is hosted on the Computer Arts site which you can follow from there.
This Blog is edited by myself and often updated with resources and tutorials to help you the same way they will have helped me!
