Aliens ate my homework... by Sku11head Aliens ate my homework... by Sku11head
Started out with the tag line and ended up with that. Can't figure out exactly how, but I'm happy with the outcome.

Completely created in Photoshop.

I've been having fun playing with the style. Might work on some large scale pieces that I have ideas for.

I love the look of this man. Where did you learn how to do this kind of style? Do you have any tutorials or anything?

P.S.
You inspired me to try something like this: [link]

Sku11head Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010
Wow, thanks! I don't have any tutorials up... yet. I just constantly look for different styles of design and pull in the things that I like about each. This piece is funny because I think it combines a lot of styles all together and somehow it worked out. I checked out your piece and I like it, I think it could use more textures though. Think of the ground, tree, leaves, sky and moon as all having their own unique pattern. You nailed the idea, now I think if you thicken up the patterns it'll feel more alive.
And thanks again :)

How'd you make the little lines following the ship and stuff? A dashed brush?
Like I said, I love the look of this and if you ever made a tutorial I would love to spam it all over the internet lol

I used illustrator to make the dashed lines, it's so much easier. You can make a line and just turn it into dashes. Then I bring it over into Photoshop and play around with it, adding color and drop shadows, etc. I tend to do a lot of my shapes in Illustrator and bring them over into Photoshop, especially if I'm designing for larger print.

Cool! That's actually what I did for my thing--and I was just messing around with the textures now...they do make a huge difference. Anyways, thanks! Your piece looks awesome, hope you win something!

Do you do Motion Graphics? This looks like a still from a really bad-ass After Effects project.

Sku11head Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010
Not yet. I pretty much only work in Photoshop. I'm trying to branch out into some 3d design work, but this puppy is all Photoshop. It would be fun to see it moving though.

If all the objects are basically on different layers it wouldn't be hard. CreativeCow.net has a bunch of information about After Effects.

Of course you have to acquire after effects first :P It's kind of expensive but for motion graphics you could probably go as far as version 7.0 and be fine (now, where you can find version 7 is up to you loll)

If it's something you're really interested in you could just download the 30 day trial and keep reinstalling it every month. I've done that with quite a few programs.

Then again you might be super rich (Well I know you definitely have some spare change after winning those two contests!) so I guess you could probably buy Adobe Creative Suite CS5 if you wanted! :lmao:

Yeah me neither.

I dunno why Adobe doesn't release their software free for educational use and implement some type of innocuous watermark or something. Most of the people who end up getting their stuff illegally were never going to buy it or make money from it anyway and many of them end up going to art school and buying it later because they learned how to use it.
