We thought we might let you know why there has been a bit of a lull here on Besotted, I hate excuses for not showing up to ones blog but I am a sucker for a ‘behind the scenes’ so here goes…We have been working like mad scientists on our next Photoshop action set for Foto Rx, this one is for helping out our fellow lettering artists (and it works super on line art too!) What used to take me 28 steps (I counted), now takes one click! It’s an incredible time saver, there’s a quick clean, a non-destructive eraser and even an action for turning your lettering into a Photoshop brush (that’s the ‘awesome’ brush we used on the photo). It’s going to streamline many a lettering artist workflow, allowing them to get back to what they love–lettering. It will be a quick and easy way to get your base ready for vectorization or even to have a finished product to show off for web! We are extremely excited about this launch, because as you may know from visits I have a serious affinity/addiction to hand-lettering and to be able to share this product with you makes me want to implode. So when’s the launch? We have a May Day (that’s May 1st), launch date on the books, we are working frantically to get there, have the actions beta tested by professionals and novices alike and get you the best tool possible. In the interim we may be a little spotty with posts as we finesse this next launch and get ready for our other top secret projects (yes, it’s a bit thrilling in these parts and I am terrible at keeping secrets!) We made the ‘awesome’ Photoshop brush available for download, go ahead use it to your hearts content, you can download it here. If you want to be one of the first ones to be notified of the Lettering Photoshop action set launch (and get even more freebies) than you can sign-up here.
P.S. In case it wasn’t obvious, that awful green tinged photo of my lettering on the left was how it looked when I shot it with my Iphone, it would have taken forever to get rid of the color, shadows, splits and splats, but not anymore….
