Digital media development LO2 part 8

continuation of digital media sketchbook

   

for the background here is used a mixed media piece done on tinfoil and an abstract portrait in pastel.

 here the difference tool was used from the layers option and it has really brought out the colours of the portrait and made the overall image bold and attractive. The portrait somehow caters for the background and makes the outline of the broken speed camera more prominent yet i am constantly drawn to the eyes of the portrait and the vibrant colours of his face.

 working from the above difference image i chose to use the graphic pen from the sketch section of the filter gallery. Now the effect it has given is fantastic and looks to be floating in the air yet unfortunately the male portrait is hard to recognize and sadly this is against my project idea.

Digital media LO2 development part 3

Just a continuation of the previous development process for my digital media project.

   

Here I chose a background image of a ruined interior made using glue and acrylics on an apron surface which then has the portrait layered on top.

 from the layers list i chose the ‘difference’ option and the result came back quite futuristic as the furniture has morphed into the portraits facial features seems almost robotic. The shading is quite dark but are still able to have the number of colours stand out.

 also from the layers list i chose ‘colour burn’. This unfortunately was not so successful; the furniture has morphed into portrait and shaped it well but to another viewers eye they would not be able to make out that there are additional objects surrounding the image.

For the next images to be shown below I decided to only manipulated the furniture. Not part of the original subject matter but there is nothing wrong with a little experimentation I suppose: -

 this has been transformed using the gradient map tool with a blue and yellow tint. It helps make the image more abstract and the yellow is quite overpowering therefore stands to attention.

 taken from the filter gallery ‘graphic pen’ tool taken from the sketch options. I really like the old style red colouring the graphic pen tool created and the detail of the burnt furniture has helped to give a rustic feel to this.

Once all of my developments have been uploaded I shall revisit the works I made and develop them further if i feel i could improve them more.
