PhotoshopCAFE Design Challenge 12 Finalist
PhotoshopCAFE Design Challenge 12 Finalist
I'm a big fan of Photoshop guru Colin Smith's books. I entered his annual contest this year and just found out I am a finalist. I created a cover with my piece Búsqueda ( http://society6.com/AndreVillanueva/Bsqueda_Print ).

I won some cool software, including Sketchbook Pro. They are still announcing the grand prize winners... If I win, I will just scream wherever I stand... They are giving out some SWEET prizes for the top winners, including a full-blown Creative Suite and some of the new Wacom tablets (I just have a puny BAMBOO pad).

I just learned that Russell Brown, Adobe's Sr. Creative Director, was one of the judges... I am just stoked that these Photoshop Gods actually looked at my work, let alone deem it worthy enough to get me to the finals!!!!
Andre Villanueva commented on February 18, 2012 6:47am
Well, I didn't take the Gold medal home back to Birmingham, Alabama, but I am very encouraged that I was a finalist the first year I entered. Can't wait to try out Sketchbook Pro and some other cool software... I'll try even harder next year.
Joan McLemore commented on March 7, 2012 8:39am
No way, man...........are you from Birmingham??? I am from North Alabama! Congrats as a finalist!!
Joan McLemore commented on March 7, 2012 8:39am
Love the dynamics of this piece! I enjoy working up abstract designs and you are truly inspirational.
Andre Villanueva commented on March 7, 2012 9:28am
Cool!! I'm actually from Helena, but just say Birmingham to simplify things. I do like your Photoshop work!
Andre Villanueva commented on March 7, 2012 4:59pm
I love doing abstract work, Joan. You don't have the pressure of actually making it look like anything :)
Joan McLemore commented on March 11, 2012 10:57am
I DO completely understand that feeling. I sold commissioned portraits about 20 years ago and felt quite a bit of stress in bringing forward the likeness of the subject, to the completion of the work. There is so much freedom and joy (and as you say "catharsis") in creating abstract designs!
Andre Villanueva commented on March 11, 2012 12:37pm
Yeah, I hear you!
