Austin's Artwork and Creations

I'm interested in graphical editing and weather, so I decided to combine the two.

Here is a slate I made to mimic the HD National sidebar showing where you are looking.


Here is the overlay I made for the video at the end of the post:

Here is the video I mentioned earlier:

Used Powerpoint to create the different layers and saved it all as one image and edited the text and inserted images in Photoshop, then used After Effects to put it all together.

Font used: Myriad Pro/Myriad Pro Light
Data fake, made up off the top of my head =)

Thank you for watching!!!!!!!!  :biggrin: :yes: :happy: :D

IMO, it's a little too cluttered :hmm:

Maybe make the radar smaller and the main box larger. I would also make the text about 4 or 5 px smaller.


Just a bit of constructive criticism. :biggrin:

I'd suggest adding some background objects just to fill the space and to use more colors than just blue.

Yeah, I centered the map and everything then it saved wrong, so it hits the top.  :hmm:

I was planning on adding animations but my time was limited... I will be working on some other stuff, but I will not be releasing any new "concept STAR" videos until November/December. I will be working on a Christmas special, that'll likely be my main target. Until then, you all may submit some ideas to me.

Off topic: my new site design.
This does have a large tidal wave as a background.
