A Design/Digital Illustration that has been slightly re-worked to be offered for sale as Cards and various types of Prints. It was created in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 using an original digital photo taken at the Empire Park Skate Park in Newcastle using a Canon 450D.
Skateboarding is an addictive adrenaline sport enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. It’s naturally most popular in cities and towns where the urban landscape is filled with architecture and infrastructure that often isn’t constructed to be skated on – yet these spots can be very skateable and lots of fun. Laws prohibiting skating in such places eventually lead to skaters and the skate industry either building Skate Facilities themselves or lobbying Councils and Governments to construct suburban Skate Parks. The photo was captured at Empire Park Skate Park (in Bar Beach, Australia) and then digitally extracted or cut away from it’s background in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where I added the graphics and chose a colour scheme for the design.
