Pleasing the Customer

So I was working on an Ad today and the customer liked the ad, but found the girls mid section showing to edgy… I know in this day and age…. so anyway normally we would just go search for a new photo, but seeing is how this is the 3rd photo we tried and actually liked; I decided to do a quick change to her clothing. These are the results, not my best work, but was fun and only took a a few minutes… time is crucial when I just want to get something done and move on.

Here is another one I had to do, it was a little more tricky. I ended up just drawing an undershirt onto this one, most people may not even notice. It came out alright it will do. Beats having to spend 45 Minutes to search for new photo’s for the ads.

This is really a first attempt at an actual Caricature, I have a hard to time exaggerating features sometimes.

DIY Ultimate Desk: Update 3d Sketchup

Found a great Application that I had never heard of before and now I am hooked. Google Sketchup, is an amazing FREE program that lets you design in 3d and really figure out your designs in a new dimension. Helps to figure out sizes and problems you might run into during the build process. Anyway short story here is what the desk will look like. Only real change is in the base, as you can see I added shelves to the base because the depth of the desk is deeper than most standard desks there is room for 8 inch shelves. Plus I find I never stretch my legs much when I am at my desk anyway. Also all the wood has been purchased, cut, and almost ready to be assembled!!!! New monitor came in and waiting for the DVI cables and additional Video card. New update coming soon.
