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!
