Winter last year, I participated in the new Sybex book “Photoshop Secrets of the Pros: 20 Top Artists and Designers Face Off”. The book is out now.
I was fortunate enough to be teamed up with the immensely talented Audrey Mantey (www.ideamouth.com), and given the theme of “Pollution”. The result is a Photoshop Battle consisting of 10 volleys, 5 of mine, 5 of Audrey’s. As a superb treat and a great turn of events, our chapter was selected as the freely downloadable sample chapter.
The battle was great fun, and soo exhausting. While it took as long as a usual Noscope update takes, it was different. First of all because it was a book, and one aims to please :). Secondly, due to the nature of Photoshop battles, the image changes, sometimes radically from volley to volley, and while the theme may be the same, the “language of communication” and thus style changes. I think the end result is very good, I’m particularly pleased with the my last 2 volleys.
