continuation of the digital media developmental sketchbook.
here i chose a mixed media piece based on tear drops and a portrait I made of an African dancer.
for all of the following images i played around with the layer tools. I used multiply for this one and it creates a nice texture around the face but unfortunately is too dark and are unable to see the beautiful bright blues of the tears.
I then used vivid light from the layers options to brighten it up slightly from the above multiply image. It is slightly over saturated and highly contrasted but i am still able to see the face as well as the over-sized teardrops; only problem is the background is very dark and gives the image a gloomy feeling.
i then used the difference tool from the layers options and out of all three developments this has been the most successful. The image is full of colour and the portrait has merged nicely into the large teardrops giving a slightly abstract look to it.
