Photoshop Phight by zakarranda Photoshop Phight by zakarranda
Two emotes, fighting with everything they've got: the tools of Photoshop.

----------------------------------

Note: Sometimes a browser takes awhile to load, so if it's jerky, just give it a minute :- )

I've been working on this project since February, and finally it's done. I didn't work on it while I was away from dA. Yeah, let's go with that excuse.

I think I was initially inspired by =JJA21's [link] , which has emotes playing with MS Paint tools. So I got this idea, choreographed it, and started working on it.

Gradient - creates a massive repulsive field
Lasso - ...it's a lasso. It lassos things
Pencil - standard weapon, swordlike
Burn tool - flamethrower
Paint bucket - douses with water (or, it just occurred to me, any liquid, depending on the color)
Dodge tool - allows rapid movement
Magic wand - shoots lightning
Move tool - thrown like a spear, cannot be deflected, must be avoided (gotta move to avoid it, get it?)
Magnifying glass - in this fight, used only to attract the lightning


I'm most proud of the use of the gradient, burn, and dodge tools. And the magic wand. And...gah. I'm just really happy with it overall.

Photoshop CS4
289 frames
20 seconds
I don't even know how many layers. I don't want to think about it.
Somewhere between 15 and 20 hours, over the course of 6 and a half months.
