My latest collection of textures has undergone some extensive processing to produce a set of versatile resources that can be used across a wide range of projects. A series of photographs of rust were first equalised to bring out the tiny details, then smoothed to produce an array of speckles with a choice of heavy to light texturing. The hard edges of typical texture files can limit their use, so these speckle textures all smoothly fade out with no abrupt lines. Then, to allow for maximum compatibility and ease-of-use, two sets of PNG files were exported with white and transparent backgrounds.
Everyone is familiar with .com and .net, but did you know you can get your own free .design domain? As a designer myself, I think it’s pretty awesome that we can get a domain name that reflects what we do, .design. I have teamed up with Porkbun to offer all Spoon Graphics subscribers a free .design domain name. The first year is free, and yearly renewals will be less than $35 / year, instead of the $70 offered at some registrars.
Follow along with today’s Photoshop tutorial to turn your pet into a renaissance masterpiece. We’ll use a public domain oil painting of a 19th century Dutch General as the source, then combine some Photoshop filters to apply the painterly look to a digital photograph to blend the two images into a comedic portrait that is cute, surreal and hilarious at the same time!
