Using photoshop, I created this salad man by cutting out food items with the elliptical marquee, the lasso tool and the quick selection tool (including the magic wand). I had to combine layers and move them around in order to have some objects behind others. I also used the eraser tool to get rid of any unwanted white edges.
Using illustrator, I created a town. I used the perspective grid tool and the rectangle tool to create the buildings and colored them how ever i wanted. I used the type tool and the free distort tool to make the “saloon” sign. I reflected the left side of the town and copied it to make the right side. then created the sky and road and sent them to the back. then I used the art board tool to fit the paper to my art work! 🙂
