“Saynt George & The Dragon”

December 17th, 2011 No comments

On an unrelated note… I just received a wonderful limited print of a piece by John Howe (signed by the artist). It is truly a remarkable work of art. The detail in there is fascinating and the energy of the composition is palpable. I really like his take on the dragon as a wormy, serpentine figure, far from the glamorous winged creatures we’re so accustomed to in fantasy art.

Speech Bubbles Everywhere!

January 31st, 2010 2 comments

One method to get a speech bubble in Photoshop is to draw an elliptic selection, add a tail to the bubble by using the polygonal lasso tool, then fill the selection with white. Finally, you add a black stroke effect around it all and hop, you’re done! Well, it actually becomes tedious after the third one… So I wrote this script for Photoshop; all you need to do is draw the ellipse and run the script (as an action). And voila! Instant speech bubble! :)
