During the build up to its launch a series of movie posters were released that were made using one of the free design resources from Spoon Graphics, hat tip to James White for the spot!

It’s an interesting effect that takes a static photograph and brings it to life with subtle movement, often referred to as 2.5D, or the parallax effect. The effect makes use of Adobe Photoshop to cut out an image, then uses the timeline feature to convert the still picture into a video. It works by clipping the image into different areas, then adding subtle movement so that the foreground and background move at different rates to create a slow motion panning effect.

What You’ll Be Creating High-quality textures are an integral part of creating digital artwork with depth, realism and visual interest. One of the best ways of adding believable detail to any digitally created element or illustration is to use good textures.
What You’ll Be Creating There are many methods of digital painting. You can paint in grayscale and color later, you can use various Blend Modes to create maps like those in 3D programs… But sometimes you don’t really have time to waste on thinking and planning.

Today we’re going to have some fun in Adobe Photoshop creating a cool sci-fi space scene with planets, moons, nebulas and colourful cosmic space dust. We’ll start by making a vast black universe full of tiny stars, then begin building up the scene with a large alien planet and its moon. To give the scene a cool sci-fi vibe, we’ll add a vibrant nebula then finish it off some with intense lighting effects.
