very nice title for a very nice illustration :)There's nothing else i can say about this, it's so you and it's great - the quirkiness and the content.I think you're ready for the next level. Your illustration style is fantastic and i would love to see your work on a bigger scale like a series or have it applied to a more specific purpose.keep up the gorgeous work!
thanks much! i love how our industry allows us constant, wild possibilities for exploration. this and the previous one are part of a wordless series called "gabriel".
very nice colours and textures. a standard i would love to see in storybooks.
:)andrew when you next dropping by the youthpark for kopi slack time with enqi & me?
nice work.How did you create the effect? What kind of photoshop brush do you use? Would be great to see how you did it. :)
i used the blurred-edge basic brush, then multiplied the layers over a water-color texture that i created offline and scanned in. labouriously erased using the same brush to create more glows. andrew taught me the miracle effect of the 'multiply' layer function :)i think there may be a faster/smoother way to do this im not sure how yet.
eeh! I am confused! it's just me. Sound complicated with watercolour texture (is it under filter?)Thanks for explaining nevertheless ... it's good. :)
Cherie- why do u need to "labouriously erased using the same brush to create more glows..."Looks like u can get the same thing faster with a patchy texture mask tht u can scan in and tune quickly w the same brush.
Christine- the "watercolour texture" was hand-painted and scanned in to use as a base if I am not wrong.
I would like to know how you do the multiply effect too,why not just overlay? :o any differences? :p and how to "glow" it? o.oThanks :)
yup, i think the effect is prob best created in the background texture that is painted and scanned in, then colors tweaked with hue and saturation. yeah, i use mostly multiply, darken, overlay and sometimes linear burn... its trial and error for me, i'll try each effect until i find one that works best for that particular texture. still learning the tools! anyhow whack first :)the glow is done with the same blurred edge basic brush in a lighter shade on a layer at the back.here are some tutorials i found useful altho sometimes hard to understand:http://abduzeedo.com/magic-lighting-effect-photoshophttp://photoshop8x.com/view_tut.php?id=5
Thanks again for sharing. :)
Very interesting use of layers to bring about the effects. Thanks for the tips and tutorials. I like the concept and the overall style. Hope to see more. :)Josh.
