I’m always setting myself projects to do and to add to my ever expanding portfolio. As a result 80% of my portfolio is self-taught and motivated work but I don’t really see it as work – it’s too much fun for that!
Over the past few months I have been enjoying teaching myself some new techniques on Adobe Photoshop. I’m absolutely obsessed with watching, buying and testing out everything to do with the software. I think i’m going to look into doing a course on it. Here’s my take on a bio-mechanical insect using so so many layers and overlays. I was pretty pleased with the end result and tried out some other techniques with animals in photoshop which i’ll upload in another post; perhaps i’ll make this a regular thing and focus on the different aspects in my portfolio to give you a more in depth knowledge of the different pieces I have. Note to self: remember to keep creating!
The Insect series of images I created was was a really fun set of images to produce. I wanted to create a robotic feel to the creatures using techniques I had learnt from tutorials.
I’ve always had a creative background studying graphic design at college. Then whilst at uni studying Industrial design. I’ve dabbled in web design and recently started looking at UX & UI design.
By far, my most used and loved program has been Adobe Photoshop CS6.
Why do I love Photoshop? Photoshop allows you to create anything that is in your mind. With imagination and creativity you can create images that are other-worldly. I’ve always used the program and enjoyed learning all the tools in the program. My favourite tools have to be the pen and wand tools! You can create some crazy things with just these tools. There are still so many things I want to learn. I enjoy watching tutorials or reading articles explaining the newest techniques.
When you have such a powerful tool as the Adobe suite at your disposal, you can really achieve incredible images. Graphic design is something that I have always done and will continue to do.
Creating images that could be used in marketing and advertising campaigns is something I really enjoy doing.
