    Default Buy my 60cents Apple Ipod?

    playing with strobist and decided to give this apple more attention by trying my photoshopping skills. As titled because the apple was the only variable cost

    My self critique is that the menu pad could have taken up more of a 3D shape (did warp alittle bit) which I could not really achieve

    Negative space may not work for some but I may add some stuff to it in the future eg musical notes or just some words

    C&C welcome!



    Edit: picture has been improved alittle and replaced

    Very cool idea and I like the execution.


    just curious, why didn't you keep the menu pad verticle?

    vertical u mean?
    umm, i guess since the screen wasn't upright the menu pad should be the same too but i need to figure how to make it sort of like rounder and wrapping around the apple..probably will try again..maybe liquify =X

    prefer square crop!

    unless you move the outlet to make it more vertical - the space above the apple does nothing for me.

    but i'm glad you're doing such stuff again, very quirky, and i always love your apples

    just noticed your comment that you might put stuff above.. i think perhaps some wording might help.

    somehow, i thought maybe you could draw a smiley face on the ipod screen, but that's me.. i'm cheesey.

    yup, cheesey or not doesn't matter, it reflects alot about myself too hahah..

    the space can better be improved with the icons and menu screen too but i'm so tired after editing those little bits that seem all-so-easy haha

    played with photoshop, the shapes was created using those tools in ps, so were the icons on the menu pad. It was created using the polygonal tool and the rectangle tool. did various rotations to get the angle roughly there. the pad was desaturated and masked (i couldnt find a way to link a layer to another, if anyone can help me on that it can save lots of time)

    after re editing, i discorrected the distortion and copied the newly distorted pad over the 2D one as quoted in yapster's post.

    basically is about that but took me super long because of the unfamiliarity with the tools i guess.

    hope that helps, otherwise i can clarify again if needed!

    Nice one. I like the concept.

    How about playing with the idea further, maybe lose the headphones and antenna, or even taking a bite out of the apple?

    did a few other variations without the earphones on the apple, only the wire head plugged in.

    Umm, taking the bite was suggested too but I reckon it would be damn yellow by then and I could not guarantee a 'nice bite' cos i bought only one.

    Its a good idea though, probably on a green apple nxt time!

    Dip the bitten apple into lemon juice or water with dissolved vitamin C pills, that should delay the browning enough for you to get the shot.

    yea

    Basically, any mild acid/alkaline should denature the polyphenol oxidase released from the cut fruit cells and do the trick


    and wow... cool shot! (prefer a green apple though )
