Anyone really good with making images...

Anyone really good with making images...

([msg=70557]see Anyone really good with making images...[/msg])

In a fit of boredom not too long ago I got this idea in my head to start fiddling around with creating a rather odd picture. I don't have much more than general graphics design experience and up to now everything i've come up with so far isn't quite what i'm wanting.

I'm just curious if there is anyone around who is really good with creating images who's looking for a challenge. Its a rather odd (and almost certainly original) image but it shouldn't be terribly difficult for someone with a little skill.

THE IMAGE:
I have 2 children....Emerald Skye and Adam Joshua. A couple weeks ago I was in the bookstore and on the cover of a cell molecular biology textbook in the college texts section had a picture of an atom on the cover. I thought it would be interesting to have a little play on words and make something interesting for myself....My goal is to create a picture of an "Emerald Atom"

I can go into more detail but i'm just curious if there is anyone around who's done something like that before.

I have no idea what you're talking about. An atom kid?

My understand is that it's a pun. He wants to make a picture of his children "Emerald and Adam" look like an atom and call it "Emerald Atom".

I'm not a photoshop wizz but I think something that might help hear is blending the image, that will make your children look blurred, and have a look for paint brush patterns for PS, maybe you find one that is good for making an atom like picture

Yeah I thought he meant something like that. I just don't understand what he wants the image to look like. Do you want a picture of one of your kids with a big atom shooped on their head?

Haha, I see what you saying. I figured that he wanted to blend them up. Into like a blurry atom shape.

This sounds to me like he wants an abstract image involving the precious gem, emerald, at a subatomic level. Or perhaps an image of an atom the color of emerald, and all shiny-like? Maybe a nucleus that is an emerald, and the rest looking like the atom itself? I think a more specific, targeted description will help! :)

Okay, since you are new here.
This post dates back to 2012, 2 years ago. OP hasn't been online in ages, so this post is pretty much dead. Posting to it will have no to little addition and is concidered to be pointless.

Please don't post on threads that have been inactive for so long. Thanks

If both you and parakkafaith keep this up, I can retire early from the forums. Also 'consider', but who's counting. Keep it up! :)

You can count on me!

But seriously, it'd be nice if this place was alive enough that we could go a day without really noticing a necro or some skiddie cry for facebook hack help.

Sadly true. I hope the staff is still working on it...
