  • Case Study: April 2012 Wallpaper
    A little behind-the-scenes moment.
  • I've decided to do a second case study, this time for my April 2012 Wallpaper. Just a quick look at how it all came together. If you like this, check out my December 2011 Wallpaper case study
  • 01. Started with finding some stock photos that I wanted to use and brought them onto a blank canvas. 
  • 02. Added some light texture to the background and cut out the mountain from the stock photo then duplicated and adjusted to extend it to the right. 
  • 03. Extracted the statue figure and made a few color adjustments to it. Also added a slight drop shadow to the mountains for more depth. 
  • 04. Image wide color adjustments and overlays added. 
  • 05. Added more texture elements to the image (in the background, around the statue and mountains)
  • 06. Added more texture and watercolor elements around the statue figure. 
  • 07. Finished off the image by adding in the calendar/date element. I decided to use the font "Rougfhouse" from House Industries to give it an ink'd look and feel.
