Zin's Photoshopping Thread

49 posts in this topic

Just wanted to start a thread to gather opinion on my latest works. I've recently upgraded and I think it's helped my style vastly.

02.21.2009 - Lost (Considered Complete)

Hammerhead_lost-2.png

Inspiration:

Lyrics - Christopher Norman feat. 3PM - Turn On The Lights [Yes, there are lyrics in this piece if you look carefully]

Photo - Great Hammerhead Shark by amanda.pippin Link

Notes - Hammerheads are known to use the earth's electromagnetic fields to navigate and capture prey. At the same time, they travel in shoals/schools. This particular hammerhead was photographed by itself in a school of an entirely different species. It is for this reason, I proclaimed him lost; just like myself at this current point in my life. This piece is also largely inspired by Electro Party Flyers with their stunning colors and swirls.

02.22.2009 - Otherside (Current Project/Not Complete)

slipaway-1.png

Inspiration:

Lyrics - Christopher Norman & Topher Jones - Otherside

Photo - Sunset in Chatan, Okinawa by dragonsfanatic Link

Notes - Originally, this was inspired by Johan Gielen - Okinawa Sunset and my love for anything Okinawa; however, while I was working on this I listened to the Otherside track, and I felt more compelled to include a song with lyrics. Another way to explain it would be the fact that I grew up in Okinawa, so those islands would be where I left my otherside. This piece is also inspired by certain event flyers (props to those who can guess which ones).

Yes, everything except for the actual photo for which I give credit in the thread. I have the PSD's to prove it too.

EDC = Electric Daisy Carnival; GSC always has a huge Pre Meet Up before the party and then we have an Ultra Circle on Saturday during the party.

Something feels a little off on both of them, so I think I'll start from scratch and make another one.

 

Thoughts and comments are appreciated. :)

WHOA NEON.

 

I think it may be the color combo for "SSBMU" in the first one x_X It may look better with a more toned down cyan and slightly brighter (and a little warmer) blue for the actual font.

what are you using to create the 3d lettering?

 

I used blender.

 

 

Here's Marthy's signature so far:

I'm awaiting to see if she likes it and I also need to ask her what's her favorite song to put the lyrics on the left side.

 

If she doesn't like it, I'll have to restart from scratch. =P

 

A slightly less busier version:

And the final:

Might change depending on her decision of a font. =)
