I promised Umur I’d post something this week, so here’s something I’ve been holding until I got the last completed photo in, but said screw it.
So, we first tried mod podging some random magazine clippings, get an idea of how it all works, how much to use, all that.
My only major tip is mod podge light, even coats, and after it semi dries, go over it again on top to really penetrate through the paper. Glossy and other impenetrable media are a bit more difficult to work with, but light even coats is the only way to avoid rippling with that as well.
on to the process!

I made this just for fun, but thought someone might enjoy the high resolution texture.
and here’s the full size 3500×3500 jpeg to download in all its glory (Opens in a new window).
And the full photoshop file with the original texture and all the colors in individual layers, download this ~180MB Photoshop file that’s rar’d up (it’s about 350MB uncompressed)
If the download link doesn’t work, I apologize. It’s my personal dropbox and it’s got a limit of daily traffic. Try again tomorrow!
My friend Joe likes to mash his name into things. Like when I pick him up and don’t let him leave, he calls it Joe-Napping.
He also likes quoting Conan the Barbarian (sometimes appropriately…sometimes not).
Therefore, for Christmas I made this beautiful image for him. He was ecstatic!! In the photo he looks super grumpy about it, but I assure you he loved it. He’s just trying to make the same stoic face as he appears in the image. Though, nothing can match that majesty. Just look at how glossy those pecs are.
the whole process took me a little while, and it’s not completely perfect, but I’m extremely happy. When sorting my images in Picasa, the Google Algorithm that does face matching guessed that this picture as well as the original Conan the Barbarian source photo I used both appeared under Joe’s name, so I consider myself successful in this endeavor
It’s been about two months since I started my new job. I finally feel like I’m doing what I was meant to. Everything here comes so naturally to me, I feel challenged, understood, and overall extremely satisfied.
Just a quick update, because I haven’t done anything on the website in a while besides upkeep on the back end. I haven’t taken any photos or done any big projects really, except Jonan the Jobarian, which now that I think about it, I don’t know why I haven’t put that up here. I’ll do that ASAP. As in, next year some time.
We made a new piece! It’s called Dragon’s Breath. A special request from a dear friend of mine Samir Balwani made it to the top of our list. He requested a drink that would be ideal for shots, totally unique, and cool. Easy enough
