Today was a challenge to find any time to make something, as I didn’t end up with free time until close to midnight and work was busy with non-creative stuff. I was hoping to make something non-digital, but a quick search of crafty things didn’t inspire me.
I figured I could probably do something in about an hour with Photoshop, and I wanted to continue improving on how to use action scripts. I ended up taking another sports photo and seeing what I could do with a lightning type effect. I’ve posted the result here.
This image feels like a work in progress to me. I was hoping for something really cool but I think I landed on the cheesy side of things. I kind of rushed the selection process, and I think that has much to do with it, as the edges between the body and the background seem kind of rough. I don’t think the body blends well with the background either. But for a first shot at things, I’ll take it.
