Birthday gift for mo by VinDeamer Birthday gift for mo by VinDeamer
WOW. This took me all freakin' afternoon!!

In case you're wondering who mo is, he's one of my best friends over at the PixarPlanet forums. He's such a great kid, and he deserved a special picture for his birthday (which was way back in June.... :blush:).

This is my interpretation of EVE and M-O from WALL•E as humans, and they also play a very important role in a WALL•E fanfiction I'm writing; in which they consider each other brother and sister. I treat mo like a brother over at the forums, so I thought this would be appropriate. 8DD

Only a week with Photoshop, and I'm starting to feel it like the back of my hand. This didn't turn out bad for my second time doing a finished picture in Photoshop, huh?


EVE and M-O are the copywrights of Disney-Pixar.
Art by me!! (and the characters are half mine, too.)

eth! so pretty! I wanna know how you did that reflection thingy! XD

8DD Why thank you! I still can't believe I did this in one afternoon.... e_e

Anyhow, what I did for the reflection was first I made a soft gradient on the bottom (background layer) to give the effect of a shiny floor. Before I flattened the image, I made a selection around the line art, color, and shading layers and copied it (so they will all stay together and not have any white outlines). Then I pasted it, flipped the copy horizontally, and rotated it 180 degrees. I squashed the rotated image a bit, lined up the feet with each other, then turned the master opacity on the copied, rotated image down so it blended with the gradient floor.

I hope that was a clear explanation.... I'm not the best at explaining things, so if you need more insight just lemme know... 8'DDD Thanks for the comment, glad you like it and I hope I was of service! :salute:

Nice job. This is going to sound like a random comment, but I just love the 3D style of the text in this picture. It looks so cool. The characters are also awesome. I expected nothing less. It seems that you've certainly gotten to like PS! Keep it up! :w00t:

Thank you! Yeah, I was playing around with layers one day, and I found out that you can actually change the look of the layer itself using the blending options, which I always use for text. I tried it with my handwriting, and I loved the way it looks!!!!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE PS. I can't believe I lived without it all this time! It's almost like I have a feel for what's better quality without realizing it, and as soon as I started using PS I knew it was better.

I most certainly will!!

I know what you mean. I don't know what I'd do without Photoshop these days. BTW, I tried animating in Photoshop a few weeks ago. It's actually not that hard once you get the hang of it. :nod:
