Very inspiring stuff. indeed!! Great work my good fellow!!!! I'm glad you are doing this.

 

I have done something along similar lines where I post up the letters and diary entries written by my piloten persona (only just as they appear when you put them in the forum not all fancy like yours)...I enjoy the writing part. Perhaps you could explain to me how to made my stuff look like a journal entry or hand written letter so I can post up my little works, or would that be bad form stealing your creative juices and all that?

Luft is being funny, saying that Geezer's work is so good that it would be hard for Geezer to describe what he does.

 

Geezer probably uses Photoshop to manipulate images and create digital collages.

No bad form, no secrets, happy to share

 

1. I start with a photograph of an actual journal page, that I made look old with coffee or tea to stain.  I have a copy stand and good lighting, but for a single sheet you could do the same thing with a scanner

2. I scan at 300 dpi ( important for the text font to look nice)

3. I use photoshop elements to put the photo image on a layer and the text on a layer

4. If you know photoshop, there are things you can do to make the text look more like its real, like, make the layer slightly transparent, use a blur filter and I usual add a style layer to make the color of the ink vary.  ( this one requires more instruction, if you are serious about it and you have photoshop elements I can give you more 

 

Really is a mix of sketching, photography and photoshop, but you can get something pretty nice without going in that deep.

It was a reply to Smolders' question   ;)

 

It means that the subject in question is far more complicated than the person asking it realizes, and would take years of training to actually accomplish....basically exactly what Klaiber said   :P   Not meant to be derogatory in any way    ^_^

 

From past communications, I was under the impression that you're a professional graphics designer and/or cartoonist   B)

Understood, I was just teasing a bit.

 

Hmmm...tired old campaigner Architect... who stumbled into WW1 and WW2 flight sim world.... that opened the trap door into a love of Aviation Military history.... that led to repressed desire to do something artistic...that didn't involve budgets, schedules and errors and omissions insurance.

 

(unfortunately I somehow I still managed to get myself tied to a schedule )

Excellent work Geezer!  I love the little touches you put in the journal.  It really makes it come alive.
