Mike Harrison is a great digital artist and illustrator from Plymouth. He enjoys expanding his skills to inspire others. This piece, called Lost Continent was made for Depthcore’s 31st chapter ‘Freestyle III in 2007 and is a collaboration between Mike Harrison, his brother Pete Harrison and Niklas Lundberg. The I first time saw Lost Continent in 2008, I totally fell in love with it and quickly checked out more of his work. Mike Harrison’s work drew me into using a different aspect of Photoshop. I started to cut images out, play with them, move them around, and then paste them together. It was a really fun time for me, sitting there all day playing with Photoshop. It helped me develop a better understanding of blending, layer effects, masking, and of how to use the dodge and burn tools. Guess what, the result is fantastic and it really helped me develop a higher level of Photoshop skill.
