horizons to aspire towards…

…or to tremble and despair at our apparently lack of ability.

I’ve been reading quite some Advanced Photoshop magazine stuff of late. They’ve just completed a round up of some of the most amazing works done in photoshop in 2008. They are quite simply nothing short of amazing. I’ve posted some samples of just how amazing these people artists really are. Some of it is hand-painted into photoshop, others are really amazing renditions of photo-montages. Astounding!

Part of me feels pretty inspired by their work and vision, another part of me is completely demoralised by just how far the journey there is!

Must keep telling myself to take things one small little step (or brush stroke or mouse click) at a time. 🙂

I really like this one. Photo montage meets art, and the colour choices are brilliant.

This one was painted in to photoshop, lights and textures added after. Shows that photoshop is not just for photographers.

A pure photomontage done in a very stylistic way. Desaturation and variation used to fade the background jazz and highlight the cab that’s being promoted.

I love the idea behind this one. Each ‘landmark’ is coloured by a single shade. Together they paint a vibrant tapestry, celebrating the colourfulness of cultural diversity.

Finally here’s “one for the road”(i’ll like to see who gets this reference”). Scott Kelby’s Blog. Scott Kelby is an amazing photographer and photoshop professional. Kind of a legend in the industry by the way. In his blog he usually posts alot of neat photoshop tricks. He’s currently running a feature on Photoshop CS4’s new tools and they look pretty useful, especially Content Aware Scaling.

Note to self: Must do and post portfolio for prospective clients.
