Digital media development LO2 part 7

continuation to my sketchbook part 7

  

the image above was done as a mono print plant as was the nude. Both were later manipulated using a number of techniques.

 this image here was made using the chalk and charcoal tool within the sketch box of the filter gallery. i love the monotone shades mixed with a bright pink around the outlines of the figure.

  this was created using the difference tool of the layers selection. This is another tool that I am beginning to adore mainly because of the wonderful colours it is able to bring out in an image just like it has on here. the red and greens really stand out against the light brown shading of the backdrop to the nude making the nude the focal point.

 this is also taken from the layers section and is called ‘screen’. I have never used this layer technique before and i have to say it is basically a lighter version of the ‘multiply’ technique which is also found in the layers selection. I think this technique has worked wonderfully with the alignment of these images together. I chose to experiment with the ‘screen’ image further with gradient filter shown below.

  with this one i chose the brown tint for the gradient map tool. it gives the image an overall spooky look and i also like the fact that you are able to make out the detail of the plant yet the nude is still the focal point.

   gr -2      gr -3

both of these creations above were used with an orange and purple gradient map tint. Both images work well together and the colours do not overpower each other.

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.

My inspirations for the digital media project

Option A: To produce a collection of digital fine art pieces – use work from another project as a starting point and scan or digitally photograph your work for input and manipulation using Photoshop software, to produce new and exciting digital artworks.

This is the option that i have chosen to take further development on for the digital media project. I have collected a few examples of artists and designers works that also specialize within manipulation of their fine art prints.

  

The above works by Promise Tangeman are beautiful and show that she manipulates photography and her sketch work together in order to create art as well as postcards, posters, campaigns, t-shirts, etc. Her work is based around portraiture which is vibrant and eye-catching.

        

the above images by Sebastian Bremer are produced similarly to Tangens’s work by manipulating photography and sketch work together; but Bremer’s work in my opinion has a more story behind his works especially with the candid photography of the man driving in his car and the child learning to swim.
