(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/1195214617/1024bound)This was originally created with Photoshop 5 a few years ago when I was working for a newspaper. I would often get a few hours of downtime at the end of production so I'd play around with various parts of Photoshop that I hadn't used before. I seem to remember that this started by filling the canvas with one of the pre-installed textures & then colouring, cloning, adding layers & playing with blending modes. I've tweaked it a tiny bit but I couldn't do much as the PSD contained just the flattened image...ah well. I still like this image, there's something in it that I couldn't capture again.
