Indigo !

Perhaps the antenna could be a touch more pronounced (darker), but sure - works for me. Message couldn't be clearer.

Inspiration

I recently "refound" this collection of mini tutorials for creating various textures in Photoshop from a blank document. Even though they are a little old, they still have good information to get the creative juices flowing!

I know this forum is a bit old... but oh well. Here are my examples of art work done with PS7. Two were created by making shapes and applying blending modes. And a ton of layers! The technical looking graphic was inspired by a Photoshop User artical. The "framed" photo is actually matted with a digital matte that I created for a clients image. This is much better viewed close-up.

Very well done Goose... Do you have any more where this one came from?

Robin I love your designs. I love the dreamy feel and the expertise. You are sure teaching me a thing or two about shapes and blending modes.

Goose, GREAT stuff. I wish I had your talent.

Janet

Thanks Janet,

It's really inspiring to get so much feedback from these forums. In terms of the artwork, it's really all about patience and attention to detail. There's really not much difference between manipulating elements in photoshop and traditional drawing and painting. In the end they are all just tools.

I have to say that your site is one of the best ones I've seen. Very simple, very clean, too the point, and very attractive. It has the bells and whistles without the looking like it has the bells and whistles. I was into web sites for a short period so I have seen many sites. Many sites try too hard to put the bells and whistles in their sites to impress people and what they end up with is a site that looks like it tried too hard to cram bells and whistles into their site and a site that doesn't quite work properly. If I was teaching someone the logic behind designing a site I'd show them yours. It would show that you could actually have an attractive site that performs everything needed that is completely black and white. Also, one that you don't have to scroll for five miles on every page. I am far more impressed with that than I am with the drawings (I am impressed with those as well). It's fairly easy to come up with something to make and if you know perspective and highlighting and shadowing, you are set for almost anything you want to do. Being able to put imagination ingenuity and the like into things is the next step and your site goes there. I know I'm going on and on and on but that just shows how impressed I am. I sent the site to a friend of mine immediately after I went through it. LOL That is what I wish I could do. Amazing.

Does it still count as "from scratch" if you use a photo as a reference? I started with a blank screen and used the pen tool is PS to create "fake" vector art, but I did use a stock exchange photo as a reference to place the highlights and shadows. This is my first experiment with creating something from nothing is PS---it is harder than it looks, and so is using the pen tool!

All artists copy - great artists steal

Works for me as an original.

Bet your 'version' has an attitude all of its own. It is that attitude that marks out originality. For instance Joe Cocker recorded With A Little Help From My Friends which was originally done by Ringo Star. Who remembers Ringo's version now?

The pen tool is the best - nothing else in the world can do what the pen tool can do. Good start.
