Silly Thesaurus Page – Rough

I’m working on a project for a text book publisher right now.  One of the images they had me do was supposed to be a set of specific words on a thesaurus page that were trying to get off the page.  I just heard that they decided to cut this particular image for space reasons, so they don’t need the final.  I thought I’d share the rough with you, since I don’t have much else to do with it at this point.

Had I finished it, the lines would be nice and neat and dark, and the cartoon words would be colored.

There are several other images they do still want me to finish and I will get paid for the work I did on this one.

Photoshop Tip: Text Along a Curved Line

Did you know that you can run your text along a curved line in Photoshop?  Just create a path (I’m not going into how to do that) and then switch to the text tool.  Move the curser over the line and it will change the way it looks.  Click and type and you’ll be typing along the line.  Neat, huh?

I learned about it here.
