The voice of your old life calls. .. . but the new voice is the one you must obey
I haven't had a caption so run thru the filters like this in a long time. It's been revised, edited, retooled so much in 24 hours that I'm glad it's complete. This became an experiment in terms of not only design but also in message. The source picture inspired the whole thing. I heard the text in my head as soon as I saw it, so it wasn't hard to go and refine it. But I wanted to do a little bit more with the design . . .
This was originally influenced by Caitlyn's "Living Text" format she's recently started using in some of her captions. I wanted to put my own spin on it and my first attempt was noisy and unrefined. I knew it but wasn't sure what direction to go.
I showed it to Victoria who put me on the path to limiting the text fonts and colors. She also gave me a few design pointers that sparked the idea of the original background fade. This led to A LOT of visual experimenting and even looking up some tutorials. However, the BEST accident was found out how to combine to different types of fades to create one effect.
Between Victoria and Tamara, I went through a total of about eight revisions of this caption. The final result above was what I was most proud of. I'm also very happy with this one because it was the caption that sparked "Say The Word" from yesterday. I immediately went to work on that one as soon as I put this one to bed, but I posted it first.
That's all for this lesson, my dears. More captions to cum. . . *giggle* Until, next time, dolls.
