Animated eCard

Happy Birthday Maverick!

For this assignment we were to use Photoshop to create an animated eCard. So I decided to incorporate my friend’s, whose nickname is Maverick, birthday which is on Halloween. I used Uncial Antiqua Regular (for the lowercase) and Kingthings Petrock Regular (for the capitals).

And William Warby’s Jack O’Lanterns 2010 from Flickr Creative Commons extracted from the black background and adjusted the lighting.

Fall leaves
I used Micky’s Fall Sampler 2006 from Flickr Creative Commons for the background. I used a gradient overlay with a soft light.
