The Olympics in 2012 took
place in London and the buzz caught up pretty fast. There was plenty of talk, advertising and
celebrations of one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
I wanted to create something to mark the games to use the iconic
Olympic Rings in the process. The background scene is a stock photo (by aschaeffer
) I found and
you can see it here
The sky was simply clouds that I made with the brush tool and added
behind the image of London. I then used the ‘Oil Paint’ option and
adjusted the levels of the image so as to create a silhouetted London.
