My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

More on the way.

Re: My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

lol, I hear yeah. I was hoping my Spalted "TREE OF VAI" would have at least got in the top 10.

Ohh well, it was fun photoshopping for the contest either way.

Re: My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

Awesome designs - too bad none were in Steve's final list, they definitely look better than some of the finalists.

How to you get your designs to look so life like with the strings, pickups, n bridge so real? what kind of program did u use to put your design together? i just used the template from the contest page - it looks really amateurish compared to yours

Arrow Re: My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

I just found an actual huge picture of a Jem and photoshopped it like hell
til I was happy with each concept, I used a few photoshop plugins to help
bring them to life like Alien Skin Eye Candy v5.1 for the glass & chrome
effects but everything else is just 2 years of extensive photoshop practise at work.

Re: My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

sorry i m new on Jemsite but how do i include a photo within my post like how TreeOfVai has done in his posts - instead of it turning out to be a link with a file attached?

IbanezFreak777: unrelated to this thread but i think your custom painted RG's are really so awesome, those would beat some of the finalists of this JEM contest too IMO

Woah ... i never used photoshop before ... know that it's a professional software for artists, photographers, etc ... 2 years is a lot of design effort. thanks for sharing!!!

Re: My Design a Jem Contest Concepts!

1st one is an awesome concept, but unfortunately with all the hardware on the guitar you lose a lot of whats going on, maybe thats why he didnt choose?

Cool idea though!
