Final Project

For my final project of my 9th grade Digital Art year :(, I decided to do another digital painting. As with my other painting, I took on the challenging task of painting a person, however, this time, in black and white. This brought new challenges to me because the colors are so similar and making sure they did not blend together was difficult. The background color was a challenge for me. It is not the same as in the photo because, as I mentioned, the color blended too much with the shirt.

In my original proposal, I thought I would add a creepy eye-drip effect on my painting, kind of like Alex’s (Bollywood’s Best Grumpy Cat) demon-like depiction of Julie. Yet, I wanted to keep this painting pure, and I didn’t like having a creepy effect on such a nice photo. if I did take that approach, however, I would have possibly made the drips be a different color (or an actual color/not black and white), to make them pop.

I’m glad I did another digital painting for my final project. With the limited time I had, as I worked on my Flash Animation project for what seemed like forever, I wanted to do something I knew how to do. I am also glad I took Digital Art. This was such a great class. Although MANY challenges were put upon me, I tried my best to fix them and became a more patient person, in my eyes. Thank you, Mrs. Oliveri for all your help throughout the year. I really appreciate it and can’t wait for another class with you!!

P.S. I will add the photo/final outcome later. It wouldn’t let me upload it…?

For my final project, I plan to take a photo from an old AC yearbook, and scan it in and do a digital painting of it using Abobe Photoshop CS6. I will try to make this digital painting different from my last one of my sister, by possibly adding more layers and using the opacity to make blemishes and other features of the face more prominent. I may also use a watercolor feature in photoshop, like shown in the other photos. The photo of Marilyn Monroe is my inspiration, because of the clean lines and the shadows being used appropriately,  really making the painting look more realistic.

(The photo of the boy eating the cupcake is the image I plan to use for the painting)
