#66 Always keep building your entourage file.
As you make your way through school, you will probably be making some computer renderings. ;) In every computer rendering you will be “adding entourage” to your designs to make them more exciting/engaging/more believable/etc. (If you do not know what entourage is look HERE)
Make an entourage file on your computer and keep it organized. You can recycle people, trees, and really anything into your designs.
Make sure you are smart with your entourage. You do not want to put in people with winter clothes into a summer scene. Also be aware of plants, especially trees, because they are region specific. Dont put a palm tree in a rendering where palm trees do not grow.
And “Multiply” in Photoshop is your friend! If you have an image with a background, you can blend the background into your canvas by using the “Multiply Tool”.
** No more hours of tedious cropping. Your welcome. :) **
Here are some places on the internet to get you started!!
