A Full Frontal Christmas

trees-xmas-19b-03
Readers of recent posts here will hopefully get the title. For those who missed them: no need to be alarmed! I’m referring to projection of 3D textures which I covered in a post earlier this month. I’ve dialled it down, gone all minimalist and thrown in a circular gradient for a subtle slice of variety. I’m quite liking it.

Christmas is no time for restraint, so here are some alternatives; it’s the same design, just different colours. The choice for header was actually the last one made – that might seem natural and obvious, but it’s rarely the case for me, actually. With digital art and the array of enticing buttons and tools, it can sometimes have you going further than you really need to.

I hope everyone has a peaceful holiday, whether you’re celebrating or not. There’s not long to wait, now! To wrap things up, here’s a gorgeously elegant (and criminally underplayed) take on a classic Christmas song. Yes, of course it’s the Carpenters. I’m nothing if not predictable, but then, Christmas is all about familiarity. It really doesn’t get much better than this, well, not for me anyway; I bet even the Lindt Master Chocolatier wishes he knew Karen’s secret.

Merry Christmas.

  2. That’s a full frontal beauty right there. Love how it’s layered and gives depth. Kind of reminds me of a theatre stage with the curtains opening to the background scenery. A bit of Christmas razamataz! Have a good one, Jacob, and a fab n creative New year!

      Aw, thanks TVTA! Inverting the colour on the final did more than I expected where depth is concerned. You know, I’m really liking the stage interpretation and, once again, you’ve given me food for thought. You’re a total star with all this inspiration, thank you so much! And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!
