It’s winter break, and I decided to download a trial of Photoshop CS4.

It’s bloody amazing and I don’t know how I lived without it.

I’ve made a few things, but mostly have been playing around with all the shiny new features and tools.  Today, I decided to make a new wallpaper for my phone.  I wanted to keep it simple but still make it appealing to the eye.  After messing with brushes and some very bright colors, I produced this:

FRACTAL in cyan

Which was followed by this:

Not totally happy with the turnout of this one. Not happy at all with the turnout of this one. The only thing I like is the colors. >_<

But I wanted to do something vector pop art, and I wanted to do something with my latest ship – Jimmy and Ginger! Aren’t they just adorable? Here’s a pic…

Oh the little cutie pies! I wuf my widdle snookie wookums! Who’s the cutest, sweetest, fluffiest (lolwut?) couple? Jimmy and Ginger are, my widdle pumpkin pies! Yesh, the best actor and actress of 1940 are the cutest!

:3

*ahem*

But you’ve got to love her face in that second pic.

Yes.

^______^

I have to see “Vivacious Lady.” Soon!

Sweeter Than Peach Pie

October 8, 2008

Yum. Pie sounds pretty good right about now. Anyways…

I actually made this one a long time ago, but forgot to post it. Eeek.

As much as I love black-and-white, color images are better when it comes to graphics. Colors make images a lot more versatile. In this image, I used mostly soft, warm colors in the background, along with many sparkles and other shiny things. (The focus of the image is the same as the original, but what wonders the background can do for it.) Obviously, the light is green, but it still fits. :)

色合い

September 13, 2008

The pictures used here come from one of my favorite photo shoots of Maki’s, and my second-favorite photobook of hers. The title of this post means “hue” or “tint.”

I got the colors by using the color mixer. I hardly ever used the color mixer. No, wait – I don’t remember using the color mixer before now. but after making these, I think I’ll try it out more often.

On with the graphics…

^ That one was later changed into this:

Red -with- Stripes

*Ohnoez, it’s smaller in width than usual! :O

I love frames in pictures. Any pictures. They’re fine around the picture, but what about in the picture? It creates an interesting effect. When I saw that texture, it was a must-use. (Credit here.) I put it on the first image I figured would work. Add in some paint splatters, and voila, this happens.

Blue Bruins Paradise

Oh, why yes, I did make another Bette Davis picture! Thankfully, I did her some justice; this one turned out much better than the last one with her. Regardless, the person doesn’t matter. I’ll work with whatever looks interesting. I wanted to do something with putting lines around the focus of the picture, and tried the effect shown. The fact that I used blue and yellow were coincidental. They just so happened to look right. Once I was done, it looked like a poster you’d find at the UCLA Student Shop. (Well, that’s what the colors reminded me of.) Lo, it was given the title Blue Bruins Paradise.

Oh, and I listened to 80s music while making this instead of my usual Asian music. Yay? [I wasn’t Rickrolled, if that makes it any more interesting.]

Mirrorcle World

The only things that inspired me for this was warm colors, the “dissolve” blend mode, and of course, Lauren Bacall.
