GTA SA Effect - Everything is done by me, no filters downloaded. First, I adjusted colors to make the image look more like a cartoon, then I used the Brush tool and reduced colors even more by replacing similar colors with just one color. The third step was to highlight the edges of bodies and muscles and also removing some unnecessary details. I finished it by adding a blurred High Tatras silhouette. I have started working on a few other photos that are going to have the same effect as well, so stay tuned!
Typography Dispersion - I have seen a few tutorial on this, but as I finished, the effect was not so good, so I decided to do it my way. First, I created a selection, did a few tweaks with layers. Then created a text layer and played around with mask and this is the final result.
The biggest plus of this job position is the english speaking environment. There is a lot of foreigners in the office and we also have a team in Mexico, Brasil, China and Romania, so the fluency in english is mandatory and english is our lingua franca.
I strenghtened my awareness, sense for detail and I learned what a real responsibility is. Similar to programming, one wrong zero or comma can create a lot of problems, especially when you cannot find it.
