ABC..........Game
« on: August 11, 2008, 10:13:06 AM »
Thought we'd better start off the games again.
I think Dave showed this to me at a care & share day?

Please feel free to start any other games that you fancy

What a brilliant plane, is it a single 260? If so what size is the final model?

Yes just one 260, it's on the small size. Didn't measure so not 100% sure.

I've been working on some new designs and I have one starting with "F" that I'm just dieing to post, but I have to wait for someone else to post their "E" sculpture.  It's been two whole days since Graham posted his dolphin, and still no "E"   :(  :(  :lol:  

Oh sure I could go ahead and post it in another section but what would be the fun of that?  :D  Besides, for the most part these internet games are as close as I get to being able to jam with my fellow balloon artists.

Sean, how did you do that? Would be handy to know that technique.

I used Photoshop.

on a layer above:
1. Select tool (circle) - Make a circle the size you would like your eye to be. [edit]>[fill]>[I chose black]

2. Select tool (circle)- Make a circle for the outer ring. [edit]>[stroke]>[I chose 2pt black]

3. Select artwork layer (not photo) - [Filter]>[distort]>[Spherize] this will give it more of a 'ballooned out' shape. I know it's hard to tell on just this little bit of artwork, but on a larger endevour, it will be the difference between looking like it's drawn on something flat over your balloon vs. drawn ON your balloon.

I learned most of my photoshop stuff from here: http://www.good-tutorials.com/tutorials/photoshop

Here's my attempt, dont think I done it quite right as I couldn't move the eye around after I coloured it in?
