Could use some help with something guys. I have some homework from a small graphics class I'm taking and I'm having trouble with it, we all have to do some kind of picture from, you guessed it, The Matrix, anything we want as long as it's based on that, so I thought I'd try something challenging and try to recreate this effect here.
Maybe I aimed a little high.
Anyway I'm practicing on this pic here, all in Photoshop.
Been struggling for days and the closest I can get to it is this.
Made the Matrix code ok, and what I do have so far looks alright I guess, but I know there's gotta be a way to do it, as you can see there's too much of the character showing through the code compared to Neo where it's all code, tried lowering the opacity, tried toning down his colors, messed around with blending options, tried adding more code (looked like crap), fresh out of ideas, it doesn't have to be perfect but just a little closer than what I have now, any tips, tutorials or whatever? Thanks in advance.
