Project 1 Steps
As a class we created an image bank with 5 images each, one of each: texture, landscape, face, animal, mechanical object.
I used animal images from the community image bank but for my background I had a specific concept and used images from a telescope and the moon.
We used photoshop to create an imaginary creature from the pictures in the image bank.
I mostly used simple tools including: lasso and magic wand, blur, burn and various picture adjustments. I used three simple pictures: a barn owl, a deer, and horse hooves. I cut out the deer body and cropped its face to fit the cropped owl face over it. I blurred the two together and merged the layers.
We used photoshop to create a habitat for our creature.
I used overlay tool, cut and past, and the burn tool to made a surreal landscape for my beast. It was a combination of four photos (2 for the moon and 2 for the background). Using the overlay tool extensively enabled me to create a surreal but simple background.
We used the layers in photoshop to create an animated clip of our creature in its landscape.
