Usually, I detest Photoshop as I never achieve what I need to create. However, I am glad to say that I now feel like an expert.
I used Photoshop to create realisitc digital designs using a technique called Displacement Maps. This technique will realistically place a design on an irregular surface and a draped pattern can give the illusion of real fabric. It transfers the shadows of the garment on top of you fabric in order to give it a realistic look.
Originally, my first design took me an hour to perfect due to me not understanding the steps! Once I figured out what I was doing, it was completely fine and only took me an hour to achieve the other designs.
The original pictures of the model and the suit are from Moss Bros which gave me a nice base to work from.
Currently, I am working on putting all my designs into a catalogue called One Canada Place. This will help me to achieve the professional finish I want as well as displaying all of my designs.
Now I am just waiting for the catalogue to be printed and I hope to include some fabric samples in it too.
