Photo manipulation with smoke

Whilst I have been using Photoshop and Lightroom for years; much of the work I have done is at the entry level. So I have decided I really must increase my skills on Photoshop and have been looking at various tutorials; both paid and free. Many of the vids on YouTube are excellent but are time lapse screen recording; occasionally with sub titles. I found Letsgettoit and watched and then followed (for the first time) one of the tutorials. This was the result:

Business board game

A training company client had devised a board game for staff to explore well-being within themselves and their organisation. I was presented with a very rough draft and was required to create a print ready piece of artwork that was A1 in size. The design was printed onto vinyl rather than card for easy packaging and transportation. The image below shows the first prototype which was to be taken into organisation for ‘testing’ purposes.WBW01

My new Cintiq

Finally taken delivery of my new Cintiq from Wacom. Awesome piece of kit; such an upgrade from my trusty Intuos which I have had for some years. I now have no excuses for not getting sorted with digital art:)
