Vector Style illustration

Used photoshop today which is all about layers. Layers are great because they give you flexibility to add different colours and images on top of each other and lets you change things and hide areas not wanted.

Used loads of tools in photoshop:

  • magic wand
  • polygonal lasso
  • paint bucket
  • paint brush

Some of the steps in the layering process. Took about 32 layers and nearly 2 hours to get to the final image.


Given a photo and had to animate it.George_B       face

Took some time to get from A to B but not bad for a first attempt! at least i think so…… I have used photoshop before but that was almost two years ago so had to rack my brain to remember some of the tricks of the trade. Technically can manage the tools really well but need to get more creative.

I really enjoyed it. I feel I could improve to give my image more character and maybe a new personality by adding more features e.g. glasses, a cap, freckles or maybe a stubble.
