Here is my singing animal project. In my case i used a goat! and a song called chalk outline by three days grace.
To do this project, i took pictures of my mouth in various positions, then just shaped it onto the goat and put it in the correct sequence to give it an apperance of actually singing.

Here is my sparkle photo. I took a picture of me and my brother, (im on the left, and he is on the right) and just modded the crap out of it! ever since i wias little my favorite color has been red, and my brother's favorite color has been blue, so i decided to highly implement that into my project, and it decided the colors that I would use.

Dirt Bike Rider - February 2011 (UK)
Title:
The font used for the title is in Arial, bolded, and is the words "DIRTBIKE" in all caps. The size is 104pt and the words are schrunched together a bit too. The Title may be found at the top of the Magazine, and is the color white.

Top Stories:
 There are 5 top stories, The text is made from Arial, like the title, but this time in italics and bolded. This may be found on the sides, and bottom of the magezine, in a dark blue color at the size of 22pt.

Sub Stories:
There are 5 sub stories, just right under the Top Stories. Except they are in a light blue color, and at the size of 7 pt. However, the italic on this font is slanted slightly more than the previous fonts. It is made out of Ariel font.
Bruce willis + Minion = Brucinion?
SO! this is my "barbie" project. Honestly, it took me forever to even find the correct pictures that would work well enough together. I wanted to cross something with the minions from despicible me, and basicly any bald celebrity would have worked, however Bruce willis just so happened to be near the top of "bald celebrities" when typed into google. And besides! Bruce had a more recognizable face then most other bald celebrities.

sometimes......people who are given photoshop get a little carried away. This photo is just for kicks.
 Before




After
For this person, I took off all of the blemeshes that covered the cheek, smoothened out some wrinkles, and then I blurred the skin in general to make it seem a bit smoother. After that, there was a little bit of the face that looked a little "angular", so I smoothened that out a bit. Another change I made was the eye color. I changed it to a more greenish but ultimately brighter color to bring out the eyes just a bit more.

Before this unit, I had heard that photoshop artists had done a number on their models to make them look better before they put them on the front of magezines, but I didnt know it was THAT much work on them. Sometimes I think that too much photoshop is done to the person to make them look "pretty" it almost takes away from the original person and makes it too unbelievable, however there are also some people that look waaaaay better after they have been photoshopped. looking at current magezine photos, I can guess as to how much work they do on their models for that cover, but even though there may be techniques that I dont know how they did it, its still stunning just how much work goes into making someone look better.

This photo, is actually a very photoshopped photo. this girl has no freckles, the eye's were originally different, the skin is blurred to look more morphed and smoother. aaand basicly, its kinda impossible for some to look like this, juuuust like most magazine photos.

This is my quick little walk animation done by a little robot I made. Its played on a loop, so he will keep going and going and going and wont be gone like a duracell battery would, until you exit the page.

One of my favorite parts about this photo, is that its so fluffy! and that the fact I ended up mixing both the rhino and kitten together was actually accidental. I just wanted to see if it would work out okay, (with correct colors, or positioning or anything) then one step led to another and I got carried away and I like how it turned out!


This Is my Newimal called, a "B-owl"??
Im not exactly sure what is a good name for it, but it is a fearsome mix between a barn owl, and a polar bear. All I did was replace the head of the owl, apply a little bit of featherlike color to the bear and tada!

This is my "SplatPanda"
Where an animal is chosen to be mixed with some different colors, I like pandas, so therefore I chose to find an image of one.

The idea for this photo, actually took me a little while to come up with. However, the turtles show was always my favorite as a kid and I like pizza so my cartoon i wanted to be with was pretty much singled out pretty quickly. For the background, I just found a random pizza shop's interior and pasted all of the characters in there. The pizza box, is actually another photo that I had to find, so i tried to fit it in there as best I could. The main overlapping parts, are were I have a turtle (donetello) behind me, and two of the turtles on the left (michalangelo and Leonardo) are barely overlapping each other, lastly, the red turtle (raph) is also barely overlapping the pizza box. I thought about how I would be interacting with the turtles, and although I could have put myself in plenty of different situations with the turtles, I thought this would be the best. Me reaching for the pizza, whilst the turtles claim it as their own.
I will admit, the hardest part about This photo for me, was just finding the correct pictures!

I was supprised with how this project went. I had never drawn my shoes before, so this thing was entirely new to me. This Drawing was made fairly early into the semester, and it was actually pretty difficult to draw. I had to constantly keep erasing and erasing and actually had to draw this thing nearly twice because I got the sizes wrong! The main goal that we were trying to achieve with this drawing was to make one shoe overlap the other. This can be achieved multiple ways, but we were to make the closest shoe a darker shade than the one in the back to help convey a sense of distance. I remember having to take this shoe drawing home as homework because of how complex it got at some areas and from all the little mistakes i kept worrying about. I could have picked a much simpler shoe, but I liked my running shoes and I loved the designs on them and I loved the challenge it presented of drawing them. During the planning of the composition stages I had actually planned on making the veiwer seeing only the bottom of the background shoe, but I scraped that idea as the underworkings were actually even more complex than the top of the shoe! Even though i wanted a hard shoe, the bottom of the shoe put in that way just made it seem unrealistic and i couldnt get it look how I wanted and I didnt want it to be confusing, so i just settle for drawing the top part of it. Making the shading in this drawing was a bit tough to do, because the shading had to represent the actual colors of the shoe. With shading you only have shaded areas, and non shaded areas. Sure you have the different hues and such, but the shoe in real life actually has multiple colors, instead of just plain black and white. However, by putting dark areas in the right spots and leaving some areas blank, I was still able to add a lot of variety because of the value in the design of the shoes. Overall I recall having a lot of fun with this drawing. This project helped me realize that doing sketchlike projects, pencil shadings point perspective drawings (even though this project didnt include any vanishing points in it) are my favorite kind of artworks to create, and that I can never get too bored of doing them. (Even when it SERIOUSLY cramps up my hand at times!)
