Moving On

I've realized i'm going to run dry with just photoshop as my posts, and the quality is stale anyway. It's summer time and I've recently fallen into a bunch of time in my mornings and late evenings. I need to relearn java script, and convert some old knowledge over to flash. Working on a side-scrolling platformer with sprites and animations with a buddy... will keep you all updated.

No picture for today's post

Hehe, funny joke.

This next picture was something I just threw together in a few minutes, more as a joke between friends. It's not very high quality, but I figured i'd share and someone might like the theme.

It's been a while... more photoshop!

It's been a while since I tried messing around with photoshop, and after seeing an image with fire as a main theme, I became inspired. I also just recently watched the movie 300. Spartans and fire were my inspiration for this image, as you can tell. This took me about 35 minutes from start to finish, a lot of my time was spent finding good materials. I'm becoming more and more proud of my work, and I still would like more feedback or tips and suggestions from you all to improve myself.

Ocean Water

Ever since I made that other water image, I thought it needed a more realistic touch to it. Yeah, the bluesy kind of color and overlay looks nice, but I wanted to use a real image. The inside fill of the letters is now an actual ocean wave, and I'm pretty satisfied with how it came out.

Back to Work

Time to ease myself back into working and studying.. Here's an easier thing I tried to edit with photoshop, it looks as though the letters are filled with liquids.

Next I'm going to try and make it so that there actually is a liquid image in the letters :P

Final Vacation

I just got back from my second and final vacation for a while. It was less of a vacation, and more of an extended party. The Jersey Shore is a place of non-stop action and parties this time of year, and i'm exhausted just from 3 days there. I was living off of macaroni and cheese and potato chips.. very healthy. The ocean water was very nice though, and the midnight dive was well deserved. It's time for a lunch break and nap though, back to work tomorrow! Perhaps more Photoshop tonight.  

Also, I'm going to try and add a poll.. bare with me.

Once More, With Feeling

I've been listening to Johnny Cash lately, and one song in particular inspired me to alter some images with Photoshop.  "When the Man Comes Around" is a song I find to be catchy and meaningful, and the words that come with it carry some serious weight.

This image is what I came up with, again practicing my skills. Still open to tips to anyone who has experience though.  I don't really have an eye for art :P

A little sun, a little fun, a lot of tan and burn.

As said in my previous post, I was down in Florida for 5 days. I do not usually travel south, and the humidity almost conquered me. However, I did have a great time with a few of my friends as we went on roller coasters, safaris, and water parks! My skin is almost done peeling off now that I burnt it, and a decent tan is forming :P.  I have over 100 pictures from this trip, most of them animals from the safari. Kangaroos, Lions, Fish, Rhinos, Alligators, etc.

  I had a great time and visiting Disney World is definitely worth the time and money. They had an awesome display of fireworks and waterworks combined with special lighting tricks over a lake at night. I was able to enjoy this with my Chinese dinner one of the nights, and a group of friends with dessert another night.

The above picture is me and a few of my buddies on Tower of Terror. That ride was so awesome we went on it 4 times. For those of you that don't know, it brings you in an elevator to the top of a hotel tower, opens the doors, and drops you from the top to the bottom!

Disney Break!

Sorry for my lack of posts, I was just at Disney World in Florida for about a week. I'm way too tired to make an educated post right now, more on this tomorrow, along with pictures! :)
