We are all super excited for The Hunger Games movie to come out!

Stoked to see what Gary Ross can do!

We decided to do a tribute poster to the Movie!

::

This composite is made COMPLETELY from scratch!

We didn't even have a Bow and Arrow.
I made them from a Vacuum Cleaner attachment and an Ikea lamp accessory!

::

We used Photoshop CS6 for the editing.
It was NOT very stable. We had several tool issues and crashes. I have made several tutorials in the past and many more composites using CS5, so I know there are just a lot of bugs in the BETA of CS6.

We are compiling a list for Adobe. Some are pretty bad.
3D space kept crashing and transforming of large objects would take forever, or simply crash completely.

The layout and new features are gorgeous! I really do hope they clean it up as we think CS6 is going to be the newest, hottest thing!

You should check it out if you get the chance!

The idea behind this tutorial is to get you thinking of other cool ways to tweak and use the tools this video provides to further your Photoshop understanding and completion.
