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…?

WP #5 Digital Painting

Digital Painting Assignment

  1. Select a digital image (that you own the rights to or have taken)
  2. Open your image in Photoshop
  3. Create a new layer to start painting on
  4. Use the eyedropper to select colors
  5. Use the tablet and the paintbrush tool to paint the image

To turn in the piece submit a new post to wordpress and answer the following questions…

  1. How did the image evolve as you painted it?
  2. What experience do you have painting in real life (not virtually)? How did this compare to using paint and paint brushes? What was easier? What was harder?
  3. What is your favorite part? Why?
  4. What would you change if you could go back? Why?
