Digital media sketchbook

So for the next few weeks I will be using my blog as a presentational sketchbook for my Digital Media class.

For this post i shall display a few examples of photoshop tutorials:

this is the image i begin with to help along with the tutorials.

FILTERS

for the image above i used the cutout filter to achieve the effect. You can do this by choosing Filter>Artistic>Cutout of which will then open a gallery pannel as well as change the image.

There are plenty of filters to play about with and here are a few examples:

bas relief     stamp

COLOUR BALANCE

taken from the above cutout image i used i have now adjusted the amount of colour there is in the image. To do this select Chose image>Adjustments>Colour balance. within the tiny box displayed you have the option to change your tone balance; for this image i used midtone whilst changing the colour levels to +100, 0, -100.

HUE AND SATURATION

you can also change the colour of the image by choosing to make the hue and saturation higher or lower. In order to successfully do this just go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/saturation. for this car image i changed the settings to -45 (hue), +55 (saturation) and +17 (lightness).

LAYERS AND ADDING TEXT

                  

this image here was created by using two layers and the difference style. You can create an image layer by going to File>Place of which will then add the new image to layer ontop of the background image; of which i used clouds for this method. i managed to achieve my final design by using the layer styles and decided to chose the ‘difference’ effect as it gives the image a posterized look.

Text was later added. to do this just click on the add text tool and click anywhere on the photo where a text layer will appear. Once the successful image is finished i flattened my image of which merges the layers together and makes the file size smaller.

Quick Update

Just a quick update for you all on what i am currently doing. i have recently become a friend and volunteer for Peacock Visual Arts of which is a small community printmaking gallery based in Aberdeen. if you would like to have a look at the prints they display and what is going on at the moment then just visit http://www.peacockvisualarts.com/ for more information and also for if you would like to become a member also.

 

i am also taking part in their Winter Exhibition later on this year in December so i am wondering whether to use a piece of art work from my course or to create something brand new. http://www.peacockvisualarts.com/events/351/the-winter-exhibition-at-pva - this is the link for more information on applying for the event.

i am looking forward to going back to college next week although i have no idea how i will cope with the homework as well as working six days a week…it may result in me leaving my job for a year to focus on my studies. Along with returning to college my journal is bulging with ideas as well as my many scrapbooks i have created.

I will continue to keep you updated with any latest events and also my work :D

 

oooo P.S a few people have been asking why my art work on here has been displayed as a slideshow; well the answer is because of copyright.

 

thankyou and i hope you all have a nice day :)
