Happy Halloween

Here’s another gif animation created in photoshop CS5 using simple selections, paint brushes with some layer effects added. I then apply blending modes and adjustment layers to add rich colors and lighting. The pumpkins are duplicated, converted to smart object, then puppet warp has been applied to create 3 different poses. I then animate these using Photoshop’s frame animation. Feel free to help yourself to this little animation (just right click and “save as”). Cheers!

Photoshop Animating 3D

November 2, 2010 at 11:49 am (computer art, Digital Art, graphic design, How to make a gif animation, Photoshop tips and tricks) (, , , , , , , )

Photoshop CS5 can handle 3D obj files. For this animation I made the texture transparent and turned on the visibility of wireframe and vertices. I then added a gradient overlay layer effect and some text effects. On a separate layer I created the sparkle over the letter “i” using a paint brush set to Dissolve. I then added an inner glow effect, set to red with a blending mode of Color Burn. I did the same with the text and with a few paths that I afterwards stroked with a brush that was set to “pressure” and had “angle jitter” applied.
