2011 csd Preview – Ramon Castro

Ramon came to the Sox to be the backup to A.J. Pierzynski at catcher. That has to be a fairly easy job as A.J. does not like to sit out many games. Ramon has made the most of his chances though.

I liked the look of the card, and wanted the challenge of the team name. I wanted to stay sort of true to the set by keeping the 1992 on the top of the card. I tried many ways of putting my name on the card, and none of them looked very well. I stuck with the current design at the top because it looked the best. The team and position line was easy so that did not take very long. The hardest part I thought was going to be the player name. How could I get an outline around the name? It turned out to be simple. I never use the text section on the side of my photoshop program. I found one that I thought worked very well. It is not perfect, but for me it is pretty good. (more…)
