Hi! This is my entry for the Envato Elements Contest of July 2017, also winner of the 1st prize!!
The contest consisted in creating something using the provided material, such as photos, fonts, plugins and presentations.
You could also use any material found in Envato Elements!
I was really waiting to try it out and this was a good occasion.
Envato Elements is a database of top graphical goods made from the best artists around the world, not just a database of photos, there's literally everything and everything is good. It's a candy house for a penny.
My conclusion after this first experience is that having access to it can be a game changer in many different types of production, it could possibly change the way you layout your production pipelines making them smoother.
Another subtle thing, i felt like Elements could be a good way to don't get fossilized in style and technique and be fresh overtime, for each project i could use a different set of brushes, textures or fonts because i like to experiment or just because you can.
And last thing, the inspiration, just watching at good stuff gives you good vibes, this image came out from nothing. It was an emotional flyer with a turtle at the beginning, but then a few researches on Elements drove me into a journey.
Check out also the time lapse progress video of the preparation of the image!
