Guitar Neck:  This piece was created with basic shapes and the pen tool. I used several layers of texture and different blending modes to make the 'wood' and inlays on the guitar neck look more realistic. I used gradients on the frets to give it a 'metal' look and used layer styles to create shadows and highlights to give the piece depth. I also used patterns for the tiny detail on the strings.​​​​​​​

Horror Movie Poster: I took a picture of my hand and edited it in photoshop. I used the selection tool and masked the hand to extract it from the background. I used feathering and decontamination to make the mask more accurate and it give it a ‘clean’ look. I drew the torch in Illustrator and edited the rest of the composition in Photoshop. I used white text to first draw your eye to the title then directing up toward the hand then out toward the  creepy footprints in the background.
