The end of my first week with SLR Design was today! This week has been great! We were given a project on portraits, where we had to do portraits of ourselves in Photoshop. I came up with two ideas, one where I would turn my face into a fox and another where I would have hair made out of water. These are the compositions I came up with:
Then I decided I would add watery reflections to them, so it looks like they are in a pool of water. This is what I ended up with:
I thought that they turned out very well and then I had the idea to combine them by having the water one reflected in water. So I came up with this:
I thought this looked great as well. So I sent them into Tom and Bex, the people I do my apprenticeship with, and Tom sent them back as if he was a client asking for a background and for the water one’s hair to blend in more. And I ended up with these:
But then, when I sent them in again Tom asked me to fit the fox one more into the background by adding lighting effects. so I did and came up with these two ideas which I can’t decide which one looks better.
The we were given a graphics tablet and I did a cartoon of myself:
I thought that this was quite good and fun. So that’s it for this week, I will update next week to see how I am getting on!
