We learned how to retouch pictures this week, I personally don't really like doing it, feels weird to me. But we had to choose from two pictures, I choose this one. Clearly. On the left is the original and the right after I finished with it. I used the liquify tool and the spot healing tool mostly. Not very good with the liquify tool so I didn't do much.

Last week we were given cameras and a picture frame. We had someone take a picture of us and then put it on the camera and then photoshop. I went through a few ideas in my head and tried some but ended up not really liking what happened. Then I realized that I had a Paramore shirt on from the concert I went to during the summer. Using the lasso tool I took the background out of the frame and insert a few copies of a picture of a Paramore concert. I did this because while I'm at school I would rather it still be the summer and I wish Leigh would leave me alone. The End

This week we started the newimal project. Our goal was to take a picture of one animal and using photoshop make a new one adding different pictures of different animals. I decided to combine a cow, a pterodactyl even, and a leopard/cheetah (i don't really know the difference...).
I started off with this picture of a cow flying over the ocean with a dolphin and guess what? I got rid of the dolphin! Then I added the pterodactyl wings and eventually the leopard/cheetah I'm not sure which one face. The pterodactyl wings looked awkward cause they weren't the same color so I used hue/saturation and changed them to fit more and erased a little of the left wing to blend it a bit. The leopard/cheetah I'm not sure which one face I erased bits and pieces and then changed the color. It was all pretty simple but I think it looks alright. I also made a copy of the two wing layers, messed with the blending change thing to make it more shadow looking and all that fun stuff.
