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.

Krysta

Today I want to shout out to the very talented Krysta from my Digital Imagery for the Fine Artist class. These pieces are all about line quality. Often you’ll hear artists and designers talk about line and how important it can be to the emotional context of a work of art. May I say Krysta nailed it.

My students are required to keep a sketchbook, so these were initially doodles filling the pages of Krysta’s. She scanned the images into Photoshop and incorporated photographs of textures and colors to create variations. The line is so delicate, and speaking of subtle, check out the faded colored dots. I taught my students how to create image transfers, which give the beautiful faded/aged feel to the colored dots. Miss Krysta, these are such lovely pieces. Please keep up the magnificent work, and keep inspiring all of us around you.

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 fin becomes even scarier, and from a cave, a gigantic eyeball stares back at the viewer.

Well done, Ian, keep up the excellent work.
