Christmas Tree

Just a quick post. I woke up quite early today and after being informed about how the world was built by aliens (Thank you History Channel). I decided to boot up the machine and have a play.

I like to play in Photoshop and Illustrator quite often. I feel that playing in Photoshop or Illustrator the two main graphic programs I use is like an athlete training. We all need to keep are skills from becoming rusty.

I started by playing with 3D shapes and creating a texture for them. From there it just grew until finally i had a light bulb moment. This moment was joined by a cup of coffee.

Once I created my first 3D sphere, I player around with duplicating the layers and changing colours. I used  a custom shape of a Christmas tree as a guide to the shape. I then created some lighting details and the snow to be layered over the baul bauls. I then added the decorations in the back using more custom shapes. Work time was around 2 hours and 30 minutes minus the break near the end to go Christmas shopping.
