Stewie and Adam Sandler

Here is my creation for the Barbie Project. It is a combination of the character Stewie from the show Family Guy and Adam Sandler. We were supposed to create a mixture of a cartoon and a famous actor.  This was a part of the retouching unit because we were learning about how if a barbie was a real sized person then she would be very messed up. Our assignment was to create a celebrity who was altered to look like a cartoon character that has strange proportions just like barbie.

Before this unit, i knew that most magazine photos were retouched but i had no idea that they were changed so much. Before, i thought that the pictures were just brightened up to make them shine more but i realized that it is much more.  I think that now that i have done some retouching, i realize how much different a magazine picture looks before and after photoshop.  Retouching artists do a lot of work on each picture and i think that they do most of the stuff that i did to this picture and probably a lot more.  What i did to this picture is removing freckles and blemishes, smoothening and softening out the skin and i also changed the eye color and saturation.

These are my new animals that i made. the guard dog bear was easy but turned out well. the parrot fish was harder to make because it was more complex and i had to make more layers. i did not put a background for that one because it was harder to see when i added one. the dog bear didnt have as many colors so i put a background for it.

Pear Reflection

This is my image for the shiny bannana project. instead of a bannana i used a pear and made that reflect off of the shiny surface. to create this effect i duplicated the layer, flipped it and then used the gradient tool.

Xray project

This is the photo i made for my xray project. i chose to do the xray on my shoulder and i put an axe coming out of it. i had to make two versions of the axe so that i could invert the one that is in the xray. this makes it look more real because you can see the inverted and the non inverted versions of the object.

Colorful Guitar

This is the image that i made for the colorize project. instead of a dancer or something like that, i chose a guitar and blended a bunch of colors onto it
this is the photo that i created for the cartoon project. the cartoon that i used was Spongebob because i know that a lot of people like that show and watched it when they were younger.  each object in the photo was from a separate picture that i put into one using layers.  in this picture, my hands are overlapping with the pizza and squidward is overlapping with his house.
