I’m proud to say that I think the full-feature turned out even better than the cover image! From a file-structure standpoint I really forged new terrain, and went crazy using adjustment layers on layer-groups choc-full of nested & masked layer-groups. I wanted to maintain maximum editability at all times. Basically a bunch of techniques nobody will ever see (that I should have been doing years ago), but I feel like I opened up some new workflows, and tapped a li’l further into Photoshop’s abilities as a compositing tool.
I totally got lost in my work while wrenching on this cover piece for S3 Magazine. Before I knew it, I had clocked over 13 hours and several revisions – specifically to the type in the main heading. I tried a few new things that really worked out well. I’m definitely excited to see this in-print!Stay tuned for the entire 6-page feature on Ameen’s car!
My new deck finally arrived. I’m pretty stoked how it turned out! I got’r all gripped up, and all the hardware bolted on… so she’s ready to thrash!I pulled all the decks off of the Slide Style™ Store… but if you’re interested in snagging on, I have a BoardPusher storefront set up. If you’re needing a wider-sized deck, let me know and I can arrange that for you!
