a continuation of my digital media sketchbook
here is a printmaking piece of a flower which shall be the background of the portrait sketch above.
the difference tool was obviously used first here and i like the spotted pebbled look that the technique has given to the background. i also like how the background has added deeper detail to the portraits skin and the overall colours mix brilliantly together.
I then edited the ‘difference’ image further by using the tones of yellow via the gradient map tool. the flower in the background makes the portrait look as though she has butterfly wings. The use of one colour has created an overall abstract feel and almost looks as though the image was made with sand.
I had also edited the ‘difference’ image with the photo filter. I chose an orange filter to shadow the image and I feel that this has highly improved the attractiveness of this work. not too dark but enough to give the portrait an air of mystery.
