Duck Swimcycle

I Created a gif of a duck! the ducks movements were first drawn on paper, then touched up using photoshop.
also in photoshop, the layers were arranged into an animation, which has become the duck you see today
Swimming... with a vengeance!

In class, we did some typography! For my typography project, I made the space core out of the word space.
For the most part, main tools  used were the pathing tool and the text tool (of course). layer blending was used to coordinate colors.

This second stop-motion viedo was made out of sticky notes. planning mainly consisting of using a grid in photoshop, and adjusting accordingly. I made a turtle that is a siege tank. a siege-turtle as you will.

ready to roll out!


My first frontier into stopmotion, behold as a snake buys a used car.
making stopmotion is kinda self explaintory, take a picture for each time you move things, put em in order
made using flash.

Samuel L Jackson is tired.

Other Stuff

Here is some random stuff I made that is not connected to any project in particular

Gritty Reboot

Our final retouching assignment was to retouch one of our own photos.
Instead of only retouching my photo, I gave myself a gritty reboot. Each scar consisted of the inner shadow tool, and opacity settings. I found that the bevel and emboss option in the inner shadow box helps make the scars look more jagged.

Don't ask about the eye.

In the grim future, there is only Max

In the tradition of hollywood, we did some photo-retouching. using tools such as the spot healing brush, the blur tool, and the patch tool, we can make people look more attractive (according to pop-culture). Photo retouching is commonplace, and creates an unattainable standard of image that some people try to achieve anyway. Go society!


I'm too lazy to add the before for this one...

Like a boss.

Pew Pew Pew

Using the RGB colorwheel, i made a colorful assortment of finger guns! I mainly used layer blending to make the wheel disappear, and make the guns colorful. Imaginary death has never looked so pretty.

Colorized Exo

In class we messed around with layer blending and threshold adjustment
I recolored an Exo from Nuclear Dawn. In ND, Exos are a unparreled force of destruction, but for now, it just looks classy.

Turned out pretty well, but unexplained photoshop errors required me to do a printscreen, which may cause a loss of quality.

Anyway, enjoy!

Unit One!

Unit one of Comp art is complete! here is my stuff!

Project 1: Angry Pancakes: My first foray into the magical exciting land of photoshop, this pancake is rather angry. Not my best, but its an okay first attempt.

 Who wants pancakes?

Project 2: Frog tongue: my second foray, I'm getting a bit better. first use of clone tool and drop shadow. not too shabby for my second project

You might want to get that looked at...

Project 3: splatfant: not exactly a "splat" or a "fant" my plaid puffin still manages to stay classy. Creating the puffin used mainly the warp tool and opacity settings. 

They've gone to plaid!

Newimals: My combination of a penguin and gull turned out rather well, color blending was quite annoying. any gaps made by removing gull parts were replaced by the clone tool. much fine tuning was required.

Flying Penguin!

Clone Project:  The clone project utilized mainly the eraser and the ordering of layers. unfortunately, due to the sheer number of layers, some distortion was inevitable. next time, I should consider using the polygonal selection tool instead of the eraser. All in all, the Max Horder turned out pretty well, and is as ravenous as ever.
I seem to have developed a taste for brains...
