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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
