Music Is My Life by Vectortrance Music Is My Life by Vectortrance
"Music Is My Life" - Gail's Mix Tape


Made for a friend who is into retro stuff and lives for her music.

I used a few brushes sourced on Deviant Art but I cannot for the life of me remember who's they are due to the fact that I downloaded dozens of them at once and deleted most of them because they were crap. So if your brush was used, please let me know. I will give you full credit.

Hi there.
I made that text by
a) Finding a typeface I like
b) Laying out my text
c) Once I was happy with it, I made a selection of the text layer and masked out the centre
d) Laid out all the content I wished to show through underneath.

No special tricks or techniques in Photoshop, just a combination of basic skills and tools.
The great thing about Photoshop is there are always many ways to create the same result.

yes, i know, but it's a bit difficult to get dA prints for me because i don't live neither in the US nor in the UK and besides, as a student i don't have much money :D

Yeah, it sucks... I can't buy them either :)
Someone suggested once I try and make this design a t-shirt. Maybe I'll do that instead :)

for one, this really isn't abstract art
since I can tell that it is a tape.

Seems more like vector art to me.

When I think Retro I think simplicity,
as in less fine details.

Considered a black boarder?

I give you a B.

Duely noted. Not really vector art, but definitely could be recategorized. Perhaps a mixed-media or typography piece? I dunno. I'll sort it out.

Thanks. Yeah, definitely not my normal style... But it's good to experiment once in a while :)
I think perhaps some time soon I'll do another text art style piece.

didn't have time to comment properly on your work but yeah.. this is really good. i love to see when designers put in a lot of effort and details into their work. it tells me that you are working on it till it looks the way you want it to, that your not just quickly putting something together and passing it off

music is my life too!!

:iconvectortrance:
Vectortrance Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009
Music is important!!!
Yeah, one of the things I discovered since becoming a more active participant on dA is that the more time you spend in your work, really nailing those subtle details that 95% of people will miss anyways, the better the piece looks to you, and the more the 5% of people will appreciate it.
Thanks for all the kind words.
