DIGITAL Artwork: Germinate42

Filed Under (GFX) by WildFire on 12-04-2005


Before I'll forget, I did take some time last weekend to update my digital art site, pixelcatalyst.lair.

It will be turning 6 years old this May.

Just a new splash cover for now... but hopefully I could do something GFX/HTML-related before summer ends.

The 1600x1200 wallpaper version of this artwork, which was previously released for Depthcore, can be also be downloaded in that site.

Here's a quick adobe photoshop tip: Take some time tinkering with the Image . Adjustments . Channel Mixer feature. That is how this blue colored splash cover was derived from the brownish wallpaper version.

You'll be satisfied with the results.

You don't need the latest CS version to do some great things in Photoshop, so tone down that insatiable thirst of yours for version upgrades. It doesn't hurt though to anticipate the coming Adobe CS2 release.

Photoshop, is one of those reasons I'm sticking with Windows while pining for a Mac.

Sorry Linux friends... GIMP is just mega light years away from PS. (Desktop-wise of course, server-wise I am aware of those linux-powered machines used in render farms.)
