It’s been a while but here is my latest Photoshop painting. For this project I found a pattern that tweaked my interest in Filter Forge and used it through the entire painting. I made several different shapes in a number of sizes, then added textures, shadows and reflections. I also made use of the 3D plugin that’s Photoshop CS6.
All in all it was a fun project that took several hours of time that I should have been using doing house work. Which do you think is more interesting and fun. Hmmmm! Enjoy.
For this post I have worked on a couple more Photoshop paintings. I love starting with a blank page and then just adding colour, paint strokes, layer effects, a photograph, 3D, filter effects and imagination. It’s like magic when the final piece is staring you in the face. These projects can take 5 minutes or 5 hours depending on how complicated you want to make it or how imaginative you have at the time. I love it. It’s almost like therapy. Here are two pieces I just completed.
For the project on the right I chose a base colour of burgundy and worked from there. If you want to try to make something like this yourself, I’ve put together a short description of how it was done. Of course while going through it you could change the base colour to what ever tickles your fancy and use different brushes and so on. I’m sure you’ll come up with something just as beautiful as this. Start with opening Photoshop to a new canvas. I made mine letter size, it makes it easier for printing since most papers come in that size. Here is how I did the rest: http://youtu.be/V98C47VmLi0
This month I am featuring 3D Illustrations by Paul Sherstobitoff. Paul has an amazing talent for producing the most exquisite 3D art. Paul has so many beautiful images, I found it very difficult to choose just 9 images. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
Here is a short bio of the artist. Paul began his career in Vancouver, BC as a commercial artist in the early 80’s. Completely self-taught in all of the ways of the airbrush, Vancouver became his stomping ground to perfect and hone his skills. From there he moved to LA where he began collaborating with his airbrush heroes on projects for the entertainment industry. After 5 years in the LA illustration market he began a career in Fine Art where he was soon represented in galleries across US and into Europe. Commissions for the City of LA, Bank of Colorado, VP Disney, Charlie Sheen, Tom Cruise, Mark and Brian, countless Music Industry Execs and Entertainment Dignitaries, etc kept him busy to a point where Paul concentrated strictly on fine art.
Whew! He was one busy guy.
From there he found himself in the world of digital 3D imagery where he has been for the last 15 years and now is back home in Vancouver where he started his journey.
Here is a link to his web site where you can see what else he’s done and also see the process of how he creates some of these images http://www.illustration-3d.com/
