This is the 3rd experiment I did custom shapes in Photoshop.
This is wicked and inspering
It feels a lot to me like some of Syd Mead's old studies in light and shape.
You've gotten very confident very quickly with this technique, and the results here are very effective.
Your really getting somewhere with the custom shapes now, I like the clean crisp look and reflective qualities, nice one
It's great for really crisp graphic shapes within an image. The weird thing is, it almost doesn't matter what the source image was, since you build up a lot of layers using the shapes at all different sizes
Yes, the possibilities are endless with the shapes,and your right about them speeding up the workflow, they can always be converted to 3D to help build up a scene, I do this sometimes as my modelling skills are not what I would like them to be lol
they kinda look like concept art
