for the project "artists are self directed" I choose to do spray paint as my medium because it's my favorite form of art. I was messing around with the colors and then decieded "hey I think this sucks so what if I scrape it with a roll of tape. Well it created a really cool pattern in certain places. So I covered those parts with circles and blacked out everything else creating planets. Then I added some blue to look like Stars and I was finished
for the second unit, which I don't know what it was, but I did this, I decieded I wanted to make a spin off of a cool picture I saw. I melted crayons and used a hair dryer to spread the melted wax around. After I finished, I made stamps of the wax on other boards and ended up with some cool designs
this project technically falls under the "essential questions" unit, but since I stopped my original "7 of hearts perspective" thing, this is what I have. This is so far my favorite art work I've done. I watched some YouTube videos on spray paint art and I used those techniques to make this. Everything on here was done with spray paint and I think that's really cool
Step 3: Custom Brush
Weve already learned how to do a custom brush, so in this step i just added a swirl pattern and made it a brush preset. my nw brush looked like this.
the next step is adding layers of brushes to the bottom of the cards adding a cool touch to the shirt and making it a little personal. i used the new custom brush and a few others to make it look unique.
THe Last step is just doing a little bit of touch ups and adding some more brush designs, giving you a final product that looks like this
My favorite project that I did in this class would be the Frozen parody picture that i did for the 12 days of photoshop. I felt like it turned out really well and was high quality. My idea for the project was to power swap ice with fire, like an ironic twist on the story. I learned some new features while doing this like using saturation to change the color, and the erasing the parts u want to keep the same like her skin and eyes. I used this photo for the Thing we did on the last day before break and it felt good when people actually thought it was good.
Question 1: I feel like this class has given me a great grasp on the photoshop program. Coming into the class I had only used photoshop a handful of times. Through out the course I was able to become more fluent at the tools, while still managing to learn somthing new about the program every day. By the end of this course I feel as though I can still improve, but I've been given the basics on a great program, Photoshop
