2018 Backspace Reboot

For quite a bit of time now, I wondered what it would be like to apply new tools to some of my old material. In this instance I revisited an item from the Backspace series. It was originally made from a photograph that was manipulated in photoshop/gimp. Today it got a lot more complicated, in Blender.

Here is the link to the original post. See if you can spot which item was redone.

Simple promo design

Here is a quick outline for crafting a web banner for a promo slider. I use a 2 phase approach: create a background graphic and add a message. Also, when you need to maintain a slider with upcoming event promos, it is smart to use a template file and just add a layer for each new slide as time goes by. This way you have all past panels for easy reference.

A black background portrait
