Here are a couple of pictures of me in my studio working on this sign. The first pictures are the painting before the black is added. The black makes the painting pop! The three holes in the bottom are being filled with color Gels and strobes to give the Guitar Hero effect. This painting was done with Liquitex laytex paints.

THEY ARE COMPLETE!!! I was hired by the Desert Star Theatre in Murray, Utah fo create 3 new back drops for their new production of Wizard of Odd. These images in their original state are 26' x 13' and fill the entire stage...they are huge. I created these images 100% in Photoshop CS3 and did a 1:1 ratio and reduced that in half to get a high res file that would look great for the printing. I taxed my little Mac Mini to it's limits and each file was close to 2 GB, so it took nearly 10 minutes to save each time. This was a really big project, I had only 3 and a half weeks and they all went through major changes and revisions...and as anyone knows I have very little time anyways with my million other projects so I would stay up till 12:00 or 1:00 in the morning a lot to get these done. I really had a good time doing them and feel my Photoshop knowledge is at a solid A game.

Here is my progress on the backdrops for the Desert Star, they are getting huge! Back drop 2 is 1.4 G big...it is the biggest file I have ever created...I am pushing my Mac Mini to the edge when I work on it....it sure is a lot of work, I pour every free amount of time I have into this project. I will put up the final images when the project is over.
