Curiosity + Forced Solitude = Creativity

March 14, 2008 at 5:42 pm 3 comments

Spring Break has commenced. However, I, unlike my comrades, am stuck in my dorm room until 10 AM tomorrow. Therefore, I did what I usually do when there’s nothing else: I turned to my good and constant friends, Photoshop and Google.

I first performed a Google search for “free photoshop brushes.” (I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to growing my brush collection.) I clicked on the first link which took me here. I then proceeded to dl most all of the grunge brushes, plus a few swirls and foliage.

The following is the final composition:

I then decided to play with hue/saturation, and this is a comp of all four:

And here’s one a couple hours later:

I’d appreciate your comments!!

    Those are pretty neat, the litegraphic image is my favorite. I’m the same way with brushes, I keep getting more and more of them. They make me happy. Anyway, i like your website, I just started mine the other day so it still needs some tweaking. I hope to see more of your work.
