Student Feature 2012 – 2013


Student Feature 2012-2013 Title PostLecturing at Canterbury Christchurch University (Broadstairs Campus, Canterbury Campus) is by far the greatest ‘day-job’ I’ve ever had. I teach a number of different modules, however it’s the ‘Advanced Photoshop’ lectures where we seriously refine our creative practice. Featured here is a selection of works by students I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year.


Some of these students (1st YRs) have been using the software for a matter of months, and it’s amazing what can be achieved in such a short amount of time. You can see a clear progression between 1st year and 2nd year work; just one year of concetrated effort can yield huge leaps in overall skill. Be sure to connect with the artists you like, and expand their creative networks. Enjoy!!

It’s crazy how fast you can develop your Photoshop skills – that’s what makes the artform accessible and appealing to many budding digital artists. I’ll be putting together a full-course (video tutorials) that outlines the exact process I used to instruct the students featured here today. Subscribe at the top-right if you want to know more, I’ll keep y’all posted on that!! Well done to all the students I worked with this year, Ive enjoyed it thoroughly :)

    I liked riot cop. I just wish there wasnt the glow around his head. Other than that it looks really good.

  3. Peter Brewster says:

    Standard was really high!!

    Thanks again Conzz for all the help you gave us even though i study Webdesign the main teaching i took away from the lessons wasn’t just the technical which obviously is important but MORE importantly was the approach to creative design and creative stealing ;-)
