3D Text By Ashley R.

3D Type by student Ashley

The past few weeks have been absolutely crazy for nearly every human being on the planet. All of my classes at PBSC have been converted to online and we are carrying on.

We had a mini critique in Blackboard today for Photoshop 2, and I wanted to share this piece by Ashley. It’s not finished but she did a really great job creating 3D text in Photoshop. The group gave her feedback in how to improve (not a lot to improve on) .

It’s nice to see that life continues while we all practice social distancing. Stay safe everyone and we’re going to get through this. Stay safe xoxo

Mountain Man by Yaritza

Mountain man by Yaritza, student of Professor VIctoria Martin, Palm Beach State College

Yaritza created this fabulous work of art, and its title is the mountain man. Isn’t he beautiful?

Yes.
Yes, he is.

Yaritza is a fine artist who wanted to learn Photoshop because she realizes it’s so crucial for artists to know how to self promote and create digital artwork.  I mean, do you want to have to pay someone to create pieces for you, or would you like to know how to do it yourself? (I am a cheap-skate. Pocket the cash people!)
The colors, composition, and subject matter have a genuinely ethereal quality. Fabulous job, Yaritza. Keep going with the Photoshop work; you are amazingly talented and splendid things lay ahead in your artistic future.

Salute to Ian M.

photoshop pieces created by Ian

These pieces were created by Ian, who is enrolled in my Photoshop 2 course here at Palm Beach State, Lake Worth. Each of these pieces is impeccable.

What makes them powerful is the use of scale to alter the way we view things. A shark fine becomes even scarier, and from a cave, a gigantic eyeball stares back at the viewer.

Well done, Ian, keep up the excellent work.

Digital Painting by Crystal M

student work Professor Victoria Martin

Today I would like to share a work of art created by the incredibly talented Crystal M. Believe it or not, this painting was Crystal’s first attempt at painting, and I would like to tell her that it shouldn’t be her last. Pablo Picasso and Cubism inspired Crystal’s portrait of the artist Frida Kahlo.
The blending of two separate faces, the colors, and composition all make this an incredibly well-executed work of art.

If you like art and painting, and even if you think you’d be no good at it, you should consider registering for one of my Photoshop classes.
