Japan by AuraHACK Japan by AuraHACK
I watched ^smashmethod's tutorial on this, and I knew I really wanted to try it.

No surprise I took Japan as a theme, I fuckin' love the country xD I also REALLY like how this turned out. Not bad for a first try, huh? All stocks are pulled off of sXc.

I tried to split it into two, and have like, an Edo-era collage and a Modern era collage together, show maybe the evolution of Japan? Or the difference? Same thing really. Whatever.

Time: 3 days (7-8 hours total)
Tools: Pen Tool, Brush Tool, Eraser, Gradient Tool and some serious Transform tool
Music: Lordi, Alice Nine, Dir En Grey and Polysics

Wow, you've captured the contrasts of Japan very well. From what I know they haven't gave up on the traditional life style and I hope they never will. This country has fascinated me for a very long time. I can't think of another place where you can find both the latest technology and ancient customs.
