This is the poster I came up with to inform people about an art show that's happening downtown in Apex. I really had fun doing it and found a lot of good ways to make the poster stand out using photoshop. The pictures in the poster are not the original ones; they have added effects that were implemented to make the poster look a little unique. The actual artwork looked a little more like colored pencil. However, I still think the poster looks good.

This is the picture I came up with when trying to create sparkle art. It was a bit weird as I was not entirely sure what exactly the end result needed to look like, so I made a lot of the brushes I used look like they were shining. I changed the modes of each dollar so each one is unique. And once I was done trying to make it look shiny, I flattened the image and added some lense flare and lighting effects. Overall, quite the illuminated picture.

This is the image I created of space. There are three planets with a bunch of little stars around them and some cool little reflection effects. The planets themselves have some odd colors but they still look pretty cool with one even looking like a human eyeball.

This is the second collage I made on return to photoshop. Using techniques from the flower brush I made Pikachu into a brush. This time the stamp differs every so often because I figured out other styles other than the basic ones in the last picture. This one features air brush and wet edges.
Brushy Stamp: Flower

This is the the last piece of art that I think we're doing in Adobe Illustrator. I made a stamp of my favorite character from the anime Fairy Tail and plastered him all over the page. He is shown in different colors and some of those combined into a gray color. I had a little trouble coloring him and I couldn't figure out how to make just happy in color so I ended up just coloring the box. I still think it turned out okay looking though.

This is a continuation of the logos. These logos were made in the same program as the last group; however, these logos are 2D rather than 3D and I did not use a radial gradient in any of these where I did in some of the 3D logos. While making these I did discover some pretty cool fonts as seen by the T in the star logo. Very fun and easy to make and there are almost endless possibilities.

These are the logos I created in adobe illustrator. The top three are made out of ellipses and text, mainly M, S, I, and X. The bottom one I made using a star and ellipses. It was by far the coolest in my opinion. But I enjoyed making them and I wish I had a little more time to make one last logo.
