Wallpaper: Find the Girllllly!

A friend wanted to experience live my brushing, this wallpaper is the result of that request. How can I resist the request of a friend to learn some of those skills that endless hours have manage to a no return when the time has come.

If you take these saying that you barely need to hold me. Just take those stairs before you hold me and kiss me to grow old with me.

Ok! Just for your info! Its done in Photoshop using some custom brushes, first find the girly, then the kiss and last the old beard man…

The eyes holds the door to your soul…

Our eyes holds the door to our souls, the secret to know the present truth in a subtle way that is beyond the realm of the spoken words. Be wary, of those who can see through your inner most lies and the darkest fantasies, for we all have two eyes.

Ok! Enough of that, I was practicing my photoshop brushing skills and this is what I end up with. As for the eyebrow, I got sleepy! It took me more than an hour to complete this, I must be loosing some brain cells! Practice keeps it perfect and nothing is perfect! But I choose to practice! Anyways, I am off to bed, enjoy!

Vista Main Brochure 2008

Vista Main brochure for the year 2008. This travel brochure lists all the resorts to which Vista have their travel connections, hence it is used for the travel agents and clients to drive information to finalize their holiday/travel destination.

The theme of this year is sunny Maldives, which is depicted with the use of the vivid colors. The main brochure consists of 48 pages with 50 resorts information, including the room types with photos and recreation, dining and other activities available from each and every resort.

I would like to extend thanks to Shiba, corruptedsib for helping me out on this project. Nearly 70% of all the image and typesettings were done by Shiba.

Splash Photoshop Brushes

Work on the Vista Main Brochure is almost done, the few final touches are what remains, which I would be able to finish up today. I will say it is by far the best commercial design product that I have worked with. You will have to wait to see what that look like.

And for you to download and use here is another set of photoshop brushes, this is an age old brush that I have been using on various artworks. Nearly 70% of my work, one way or another, consist one or more of these brushes.

Hibiscus Photoshop Brushes

This is a brush set that I made for a project. These hibiscus flower brushes were used in many of my photoshop projects. So here I am sharing the brushes, use it in whatever way your imagination allows you to… These brushes were made using photoshop CS3 and I have no idea if it works in the older versions. Do let me know how it goes.
