This new MotorMavens deck and a bunch of other designs by my hand are once again available online!I can make decks in different widths, from 7.25 all the way up to 8.25, including old-skool, pool, and longboard shapes – so if you see any decks in the store that tickle your fancy, but need a different size, just let me know! I will get re-sized and up in the store for you STAT.
I added a new feature to the site that breaks down time and software details for each project. It is my hope that it will help prospective clients get a better idea on what it takes to create the work that I do. Too many people STILL think that you just wave a magic wand and click a few buttons and BAM – you have good work. That has never been the case, nor shall it ever be such.I rolled up my sleeves and got to customizing the WordPress interface so I could toggle this data field on (the default is off) as needed. It made for a good exercise, because I learned a few things in the process… and I am definitely pleased with the result!
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.
