How To Make iPod Ads

Recommended Posts

Err... Step 2?

As well, if I think you are trying to achieve the effect of black on a background color then I am afraid that it has already been done.

Oh god I'm so embarrassed. Honestly I didn't mean to press submit.

It has already been done? Really?

My apologizes, I couldn't find one anywhere.... I guess this was a failure.

Keep writing, then let it get locked. This seems better written then the previous and I would rather see this archived for searching then the other :wink:

Well written tutorial, but I have some suggestions if you don't mind.

1. Altair shouldn't be 100% black. If you look closely at iPod commercials, you can always still see the outline of the features of the subject. This would make him look much more like what he is, an Assassin, with all of his equipment, rather than a plain silhouette.

2. Try to make the green background interesting. Normally the commercials don't just use a plain color, they have some sort of effect running in the background at low Opacity. Adding a horizontal line with gradienst or something like that will make it look less 2D, and keeping it at a very low Opacity will make it appear as part of the background.

Just something you might want to think about. You're the author here, so you can do what you want.

EDIT: Here's my take on it, using what I talked about (If you tilt your screen, or stand up and look down on it, you can see Altair a lot better)

Ya, I know that the iPod ads have some detail to them I just didn't mind much of it. Still, I will add an "Additional Steps" when I have the chance.

Edit: Done!

Was that what you were talking about?

I always find an invisible gradient works well.

Invisible? That makes for an extremely detailed yet absolutely uniform background :D
