InDesign has got some amazing tools when you’re working with print/type, allowing you to quickly setup grids, columns/rows and much more! Here’s a few magazine spreads I recently created in InDesign CS6 (click image for bigger size):

Photo Manipulation in Photoshop – Meerkat + Cheetah

My first attempt at inter-species photo manipulation, combining a meerkat’s body with a cheetah’s head! Wasn’t able to blend the colors right, but came close to it:

I based it off the Seneca winter 2012 ad campaign. The people, pigeon and Seneca logo were vector elements brought in from Illustrator. Original poster size: 20×28 inches.

Season Effects – Photoshop CS5

What we’re doing here is taking an image and recreating the environment to give the effect of different seasons. Original (picture of New York Central Park by unknown person)

Summer! (or I guess you could even take the original for this)

Flash animation – Cheetah Run Cycle

Flash animations generally don’t require too much work if your assets are all setup and you have everything planned out. This was a pretty simple scene with a looping background and a run cycle.

Starting off, I got an image to use as the run cycle for a feline:

Once the image was traced out in Illustrator, I added a gradient and started testing out the animation in Flash since I hadn’t tried it before.

I then came back to Illustrator to add spots to the cheetah and shadows as well. The shadows were just flipped, re-sized versions of the original with reduced opacity.

Moving to Flash, I imported my frames and started setting up my animation. I then imported grass and ground elements from other illustrator files.

screen5

I’d already setup one of the layers with a large width to animate so I set that up for the other grass as well, but instead I did it in Flash. This was done by duplicating and reflecting the image onto it’s right side so the part where they join matches along with the beginning and the end ensuring a smooth loop. This was then classic tweened from right to left.

I added clouds and a simple background and was almost done with the animation. Just to test out how audio worked, I also added a song from the lion king soundtrack on a separate layer.

And finally, it was complete! Click to view the flash animation!
