★Welcome to my Gallery!★


Hello Friends!
This here's my gallery! I hope to have regular updates here on things I've made and I'd love your CnC. I intend on striving to get so much better at my graphic design skills and aim to become a graphic/web designer when I leave school. So again your CnC is invaluable to me. Please be critical but in a nice way - like all Artists I can be sensitive about my work. However i promise not to bite your head off if you dont like anything I've done.

Philosophy on Graphic Design
I've been graphic designing for over 2 years now, I've had my share of tests and trials. When I first began I used Gimp and did so around the two years mark. When I started I wont deny I was awful at it, however I wanted to get better and progressively teach myself. People always told me, that I'd never amount to anything, I was rubbish and should just quit now. Some tried to direct me to tutorials, however I refused. I wanted to develop the skills and styles all on my own. I made up this analogy to demostrate the approach I take towards graphic designing.

"To me, adding the effects to a stock is like adding the icing to a cake. Without it, you should have alright tasting cake, however it can taste a bit plain, so we add icing. Too little icing you might as well be just eating cake, however too much icing just leaves one feeling sick."

My favourite quote from someone else is:

"Simplicity carried to an extreme becomes elegance."

The Artwork


Tags
These tags can be used by anyone on THIS site only, please credit me, and link back to here. You are not allowed to use them on any other site unless you have special permission by me.


[Unkown Date] - This one was my second photoshop tag ever. Its rare that I still love them, but this one I do. Something Magical happened with the lighting and the clours which I honestly cannot explain. I've tried recreating similar effects multiple times but I never can seem to get it anywhere near to the clarity of this tag.


29/11/09 - A brilliant stock of Sora, it makes a pretty decent tag on its own, I just tweeked the colouring, levels, and angle to make my own creation.


30/11/09 - Poor Tina, She's been begging me for MONTHS for a Chi's Sweet home set for the both of us, School kept me down so much I just didn't have time,
Finally Here it is! This is the full coloured version. I made Tina and myself dual tone ones to be extra cool. ^_^ Vector is fun.


14/12/09 - A collab with my Bro, He did most of the work, which left me bewilded what to do with it. So... I added a texture and changed the entire tag. I dont think even he saw it was going this way. :] It's the first vertical tag I've made that was successful.


16/01/10 - Wow... it's been over a month since I've done something decent to show everyone. Today marks a momentous day where i turn over the metaphorical leaf, and get out of my Creative Depression. Today I decided to instead of wishing 'why can't I be like them' changed my tune to a different note. From this day on im not going to try and be like everyone else. No ma'am Im going to be like ME! This lovely tag was made for you Callum!


16/01/10 - Woah two in one day? Impressive. This one is for my Bro, Ken, this one's for you! Keep it real.

Avies


Banners


Misc.

28/11/09 - Decided to have some fun with some brushes I recently downloaded. It turned out rather pretty. Im trying to get loads of practise in when I dont have school to bother me.


28/11/09 - Fun with Vector art. As you can see im rather amature at it, however i've always loved the art style and intend on continue practising and mastering this style. Hats off to those of you who already are amazing Vector artists. You're the reason I'm inspired.


29/11/09 - I must really like these colours or SOMETHING. I struggled to find a name for this piece of art, but, the night sort of colours lead me to Nightlife. It's another one of me just experimenting with brushes. Nothing spectacular.
