Digital media development LO2 part 17

part 17 of the digital media sketchbook

    

for this post i have decided to use another self portrait and also a mixed media piece of a train tunnel

 in my usual style the ‘difference’ tool has been used from the layers selection. the image would have been successful if the the face had not been completely hidden away especially as the effects of the background have worked nicely into the rest of the portrait.

from the difference image i then went on to use the gradient map as usual but the red completely overpowers the whole image resulting in both the background and the portrait a difficulty to make out.

 therefore here i chose a different angle for the gradient map on the ‘difference’ image by using the orange and purple tones. once again unfortunately the yellow tint added around the hair seems to take the image over and i am unable to make out the portrait.

 

sadly this part 17 experiment was a failed attempt.

Digital media development LO2 part 12

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.

the photo filter can be accessed via here: -

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.
