    littleMatt vs. pea3698 :: Inspiration Reborn

    Hope Im going about this correctly?

    So... My PS skills are pretty dry for the past couple of years all Ive really used PS for is re-touching photographs at work/home and Im seriously jealous of the work that gets done here in the Arena.

    Ive never had a battle before so if anyones up for it hopefully some of that skill will rub off on me.

    Rules:
    Images no wider or taller than 700px
    Rotation is kool
    Element from the last volley to be included
    4 day turn around ish

    I really like how you did the font on your volley littleMatt. Very clever

    I'll be lurking in the background watching this battle

    This is way off my normal style and i'll admit not much photoshop was used. But, here is my first return. I'll go a bit more photoshoppy in my next one. Let me know if you can't see the image over the black silhouette.

    btw i volley fairly fast but that doenst mean you have to. Take your time. How many rounds are we going??



    I've seen something like this somewhere but i'm not sure when or where, but I guess that's what being inspired is all about.

    Ok I just got home and I can't see the face in the silhouette. If you don't mind I would like to make it more visible? Just a slight change.

    Nice return man, I like! The silhouette looks good to me.

    I dunno how many rounds, what's normal?

    I said 4 day return just to accommodate. I'll try and get something up a lot quicker than that. (work permitting)

    No problem with the return time littleMatt. I don't think there is really a normal round number. Sometimes you go until things get busy and you need to stop. Or you can pick a number. If we pick a number I normally say a min of about 4 (it takes about 2 to really get into it and that seems to be when people start working better with each others styles. A max of like 7. Just let me know, i'm open to anything.

    Original image

    Here you go

    4/5 rounds sounds good to me, though I'm afraid I'll be quiet over the weekend as I don't have tinternet at home.

    I loved your last image man. I'm trying to stay away from fantasy type images. (a rut i got into) But that image almost made me go in that direction. Anyway here is my return.

    Title inspiration notebook


    ENJOY

    * upon comments and my staring at the image I am reloading another version. I'm not doing this because of negative feedback more so because I just didnt think all the stuff on the left page was needed. If you want ill load the old version just say so

    Little matt, I love the colours on that snow scene.
    Very cool twist on the typical black and white.
    Pea: your work is, as always, very cool. I really like the note book.

    My only complaint?
    The tape, build it up with a few more layers, lower the opacity to give it a little more translucency.
    But thats just me and I know buggerall.

    Pea3698 - the text on the left side should have been rounded to match the paper a little better, other than that I like it.

    littleMatt - er.....uh.....mmmm.....mountains are a tad dark. Seriously, I really, really like this image. Your best.
