Had a photo shoot at Sugar Mill Night Club in Hull. This is from the second shoot of the day. Model feature is Betty Banzai from Model Mayhem. I want to do a grunge type poster similar to this Dirty Grunge Poster and Simple steps to create impressive illustration. Also this list of 450+ grunge brushes helped.
Background cut and left white
Duplicated layer, then Filter -> Artistic -> Cut Out. Set blend mode to 60% opacity.
New layer render clouds then blur, add radial shape in new layer
Build up layer with grunge brushes and changing layer blending styles, altering graduated blend mode
Continue with other brushes
Show all layers
Then text layer with graduated layer style.
Would have been my mums birthday today. She was a big Abba fan. I grew listening to all their songs. Now when I hear them I always think of my mum.
Missing you Mum.
Where is the spring and the summer
That once was yours and mine?
Where did it go?
I just don’t know
Taken last year in my Dads garden. Always has a good show of fuscias and other plants. Used the coffeeshop.com action for rounding corners and a vintage action to give a faded photo look.
Another old shot. Taken at St Stephens in Hull. Used photoshop for selective colour/mono effect.
Taken awhile ago used a litho tutorial found here http://istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=49727
Then used a brick wall texture with a radial full layer. Might have a go at another one in the near future.
