Adobe Creative Cloud

Daily Design Challenge!

Daily Design Challenge!

So I wanted to practice working on design in Adobe Illustrator, for both personal and professional! So I looked up the word of the day at Dictionary.com and came up with a design based on that word. And the lucky word was… drumroll please!
Phenom!

I came up with this concept for a after school tutor program. Hopefully that came through!

I challenge you to come up with a design based on this word as well!

Adobe Photoshop CS6

So I have wanted to get Adobe Photoshop for such a long time, but the cost was way to much to afford. I’m sure I am not the only one this has happened to. However, Adobe has heard the call of millions of starving artists and college students and has provided the tools we desire in an affordable manor. I give you… Adobe Creative Cloud. For a reasonable monthly fee (http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud.edu.html?promoid=JQPEQ). What Adobe has done is made their software available online. This membership allows users to get access to many of their apps (photoshop, lightroom, after effects, etc.) instantly to your computer.

If I haven’t been able to convince you yet, go to the website now…NOW, and get the 30-day trial period for free. I have been using it for only a day, and I’m hooked. Here are some simple photo’s that I have ran through photoshop in about 30 minutes.

I created this image from two separate captures. The snowboarder was cut from a different shot altogether, and cropped and blended into this fiery rail.

I had posted the original image a day ago, which was a full color print. I was able to highlight only the woody and make the background black&white.

 

Ok enough with the inner salesman, hopefully this has been knowledgeable and informative. As an artist (and I use that word loosely), I finally will be able to have the tools to illustrate what I  see in my minds eye.
