Art Show Poster
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.

Sparkle Art
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.

Space Image
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.

Brushy Stamp: Pac-Man
This is the final piece I made upon return to photoshop. I downloaded and used a brush texture pack labeled pac-man giving me access to a couple different brushes shown here. Quite a fun texture pack and I think the end result was very colorful.
Brushy Stamp: Pikachu
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 first of the stamp pictures on return to photoshop. The tutorial flower is shown here with the basic stamp in the top right corner overlapped by many different types of flowers surrounding it in all different colors and sizes. Not much differs between the flowers because I was messing around with the settings but it was still fun.

Happy Stamps
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.

2D Logos
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.
