Here’s a new magazine cover style nouncement that we did recently:

This picture really was great as an image to start with, but we did some color work on it to make it work better for a magazine cover look, with a solid white background.  To make the baby more integrated with the background, we brightened his face up more, especially close to the background, as if the background is acting as a light source.

Also, it may be difficult to see at this size, but we found a font that had olympic sports characters for each letter (like a Dingbats style font) and put lots of those characters over the white background very subtly, just to add some interest and go along with the olympic theme.

It was a fun change to do a magazine style since we do mostly movie poster styles.
