The House: Before & After

Close-up of the title. I used the font Feast Of Flesh (italic).

You can get the font right here.

The hole in the roof was really fun to do. The wooden bars under the tiles, are actually a piece of the fence that I've stretched out and scaled to fit in this new context.

What's a ghost house without a scary looking spirit in the window?

Darn it! Who left those bloody smudges on the stairs?!

This is something you don't wanna have: the one and only thing that separates your house from the graveyard (the fence) is broken!

Back in Kolding after having taught at Rødding Højskole for three weeks. I had a great time there, and once again confirmed to myself, that teaching really forces you (the teacher) to study the software more than you would normally do. I’ve been teaching Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Flash / After Effects, so I’ve been quite busy structuring schedules for each day. The cool thing is, that all the material can be re-used for next time!

I spent a great deal of time on preparing a project in Photoshop for the students to try out. Basically it’s a matte-painting where a regular victorian-style house is transformed into a ghost house!

The images above show the before and after stage of the project. Slide your mouse across the image, to switch between the two stages! Credits to Jonas Drotner Mouritsen for lending me the Flash file, which is originally used here.

I’m planning on making a series video tutorials based on The House. That would be kind of fun.

    Eij hvor er det vildt fedt det du har lavet med før/efter billedet hvor man kan trække det langsomt fra side til side!! Sad ihvertfald og trak et par gange til højre og venstre for at se alle de ting du har lavet om :D FEDT!

    Fedt! Viser sgu meget godt hvor meget Photoshop egentligt er i stand til at gøre med billeder — det er jo ubegrænset.

    Havde slet ikke set alle detaljerne før du viste closeups.
    Nice skrift også :)

    Sikke en forvandling – der er vidst langt igen før jeg kan kreere noget der bare ligner – good job, Joaquim! og arhj hvor jeg fortryder at jeg ikke meldte mig på det korte kursus først :( øv øv øv

    Awesome!!!!
    Hvis jeg nogensinde får penge til at lave min disaster/horror omkring kæmpe radioaktive vandrendepinde (Return of the sticks) så ved jeg hvem der skal stå for plakaten :)

    Ture

    @ Ture — Jo tak man :) Du skal sgu bare smide en mail hvis du ligger inde med nogle sjove projekter jeg kunne komme ind over. Kunne sgu være nice at lave flere plakater. Det er jeg ret tændt på faktisk.

    Det var en super fed opgave på kurset. Ville ønske jeg havde photoshop dokumentet fra dengang, så jeg kunne genskabe de effekter :-) Desværre gik min com død uden at nå at redde noget. Kan slet ikke huske hvordan vi gjorde – desværre. Er det muligt at få ps-filen af dig?

  7. Jokke-svin says:

    Hey Stine. Jeg har just nu sendt filen til dig via Wetransfer.
