On the Twelfth Day of Photoshop... A Paint for the New Year!!!

So first, you may be wondering why there wasn’t an eleventh day. It was because I got sick and had to go home. Not very fun. I ended up sleeping until today when I had to go to school. It felt great. Anyway. We had to take a famous painting and making it for the New Year/ Christmas. So, I will let my painting do that talking. Enjoy!

My cinemagraphs are finally done. Although it didn’t take that long to think of and take the pictures, it takes a while to actually get everything in order. For me the problem came with the fact that when my pictures were taken, the camera would move. I had to match up the background and the trees around me to make it look alright. It was difficult but a fun project! I really enjoyed being able to take a photo and adding my own to it or make it different even thought it was already taken about a year or so ago. It’s funny that in one picture you can see me about a year ago and then I am in the photo frame a year later. It doesn’t show much of a change, but it can very funny at times! Hope you all enjoy!

So today we start a week long project on cinemagraphs! We have to take a still picture and make it move in only one aspect. So It will be difficult, but I am up for the challenge!

First up is the picture frame. My plan for this picture is to replace the frame with an animation of me ducking behind a tree or something. I kinda like the natural setting so thats what it will be. Hopefully all Ill need is the woods around here and my trusty old Photoshop~

Second is the lights. I plan on taking them an having one flicker on and off. This idea was given to me by a friend and I thought it would be awesome to make their idea real. So here we are. I already started playing with it and mostly all I have to do is copy the light and make it brighter and darker~ Simple enough!

Random Flowers

Got into illustrator today.... So yeah... Flowers on the first day. I played around with the distorts a lot. Some don’t even look like flowers, but hey. It was fun!

HALO IS HERE!!!! And guess who is obsessed!

That would be me!!! Halo four just came out and we had to do a project using ipads, so what better to draw then a Halo guy! Haha~ Note, I’m not the greatest artist in the world. And definitely not when it comes to ipads. But anyway.
1) The Idea: Again it came from me loving Halo. It’s awesome and I love it. Also Red VS Blue was a big impact. I’ve been roleplaying lately with them. It’s fun~
2) Theme: Again everything comes back to Halo. I’m obsessed at the moment and people love and hate that about me. From the first Halo is the first book, Halo, and the book Reach comes for of course Halo Reach. So the pictures are famous scenes from the games as well as the posters or advertisements. :D
3) Mood: Both of these games tend to be sad and a little gruesome. So a more serious cover with memorable pictures is a good way to express that.
4) Fonts: The Halo font seemed the most appropriate. It will catch the attention of anyone who knows what Halo is and get them interested in the books.
Note: I went a little 3D happy with thise project! Haha

 And for those crazy kids: HALO and REACH soda!

 And for those apperal fanatics: Rings of the books!

Limiting the color schemes of each card to the original colors of the holiday is the way to go. For example, Valentine’s Day has always been red and pink. So limiting your schemes to include those colors is the best option. The original colors were picked for a reason. :) Layer styles helps make words stand out and object seem 3D so it is a useful tip in creating these new cards. Along with your own custom brushes. From the hearts to the candy corn to the ornaments to the Easter eggs. Custom brushes are the way to go to get the affect you are looking for in an easy to do way. Then the final trick is text placement of the logo of Hallmark gold crown and the actual words of the card. Usually, front and center is good, but in some cases, you want it off to the side to add an effect on the card. Such as the Valentines card. Overall, this new line of gift cards was a fun and simple project. But in the long run, tedious. It Took 3 days to make these cards, but it was well worth the trouble.

Fun with Brushes

Brushes. From particals to flowers, its easy to store an image and use ot over and over again with different colors and patterns. Its fun to make things go together, but it can be hard to find the colors that go and to make everything look good. A neat little trick is using the same color but making it brighter or darker depending on the effect you want. But once you get the hang of it, it is very easy!

Tigger-A-Roo the New Coo-Ka-Doo!!!

Creepy Magazine features Tigger-A-Roo the new Coo-Ka-Doo. The once cuddly Tigger is now a menacing Cheshire Cat. His plastic surgery was a horrifying transformation and perfect for our magazine. We simple HAD to get him as our feature. Him and all this friends have made our entire issue. They all have their own problems and hideous stories. Making an entire issue was hard however. The color scheme was hard because they colors were either too light or too bright. Nothing looked right so the color alone took the better part of a week to do. But in the end, it turned out right and it make a great magazine.

Tigger the Cheshire Cat

I tend to love making scary things. So, this is no different. I put harmless Tigger as the creepy Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland. It turned out pretty well... Clearly. And it was tons of fun. But it was annoying trying to get thr hair the way it is and even then its not the best. But hey, its pretty dang good. :D Im excited for this project. And this is only the beginging!!!

The Names Bond. James Bond.

Today our job was to take an image and make it with words instead of the actual pciture. And I have been obsessed with James Bond lately since the new movie Skyfall is coming out. Yay! So for my birthday I get to go see it and yeah. Obsessed. I made a classic image of James Bond into words. The bullet scene from every movie at the beginning. I found it really fun to do and it turned out pretty good. So I happily present, James Bond 007!!!


I took my senior quote and decided to play around with it today in photoshop. Hehe~ So my senior quote is something I truely believe in. The song Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield describes me perfectly so it wa my senior quote, so I spiced it up a little and had fun with it.

So... Our job today... Well the past 3, was to make a real person into a cartoon. And well.. I chose Eminem. And what better to do than to make him an M&M? It was alot of fun. I really liked this project and had fun doing it. Once I was done with Eminem, I took Rihanna and made her an M&M as well. Then again. I took Nathan Drake from Uncharted and made him into an M&M. It was fun. For trying to make people into round versions of themselves. It can be quite challenging. You might find a great picture and think it will work great, but if they are not facing directly forward, it distors their face in an odd way. But it was a good challenge to have to look around and find one picture of their head than another of their body. But clearly it worked pretty well once you found the right picture to use. Doing this project over, I would have liked more time. It may not look like that long, but one M&M took all day trying to find the picture than distor the body to make it round and still look kinda like them. In the end, I really liked how this turned out. It was fun and I made the celebrities have a party with the original M&Ms to meet who they used to be!

The Real Cookie

So Cookie isn't my real name. It is actually one of my characters names. She was based after me and she has a big story to go with her. One of my good friends drew a picture for me of what she though that Cookie looked like. And its really good. The only problem is that it was black and white and dark and hard to see. So I took it and photoshopped it to make it color full. And Cookie loves Fall time with all the colors of the leaves so what better to make the color scheme than Fall? Haha~ So here is my most creative and amazing character, Cookie McNemic.

How to Make It: Case 2

Klare Ping is a troubled girl who has a lot of stress in her life. And her pimples are not helping the problem. So to help her out we managed to get her face free and clear. Now smooth, and add a slight tan. Add some color to the eyes and lips. And now you have the refreshed Klare!

Making it Look Better

So today, we learned how to take a person with poor skin and make them have beautiful glowing skin. So... Yeah... Here we go. I got carried away in the end and made her eyes a cool blue color.

This was the original image. She doesnt have that bad of skin, but the freckles were everywhere. So I took them out and softened her skin and colored her eyes. Tons of fun right?

This is the after image. Her skin looks brighter and her eyes are prettier. Then... I got carried away and loved the eyes so much that I made this.

Eye colors!!!! I love them so much! Hehe~
