Welcome In This Header I will be Posting My Art From My Senior Year!
For this project I wanted to make a poster honoring Kobe Bryant, I also wanted to honor the present aswell with the Lakers winning the championship, I had Lebron James climbing the staircase of "greatness" and reaching the GOAT or greatest of all time stature and chasing the ghost of Micheal Jordan. I wanted Kobe to be on Lebrons side fugitively while hes climbing the GOAT status. I used Illustrator for this project and it helped me get used to the program to start the school year again. I used alot of techniques throughout the project and learned alot about the program.
For this project I made a glow edit on one of my favorite NBA player, I learned this following a technique and made my own specific edits. I learned a-lot of new photoshop techniques and practiced some old ones, some of the new techniques I learned is using the pen tool and making specific selections and more with the paint brush tool. I wanted to create a background and utilized a brush I downloaded and tried to mimic a smoke background. I also learned new blending technique and created a mask in the beginning to edit the player. Overall, this project has thought me a-lot of new skills that I hope to use in future projects.
In this project I did a photoshop edit and a naruto edit, I used the photoshop skills I have been developing in the year and put the edit on my face because the show is one of my favorites and I wanted to do my next edit on the show. I used the masking tool to put the eye and edited it with my face. Overall this project was very fun and I'm going to continue to develop my photoshop skills.
In this project I wanted to make a normal city like Los Angeles into a beautiful scene from a anime. a director known as Makoto Shinkai is a very famous director who directs visually appealing films like Your Name. There are very distinct scenes in his movies where the sky is shown and I wanted to take the sky from one of his films and create a blending effect with the city of Los Angeles. In this project I used photoshop and used new features like the Camera Raw filter and the levels tool to adjust shadows and other things of the city. I also used a paint brush tool and lowered the opacity of the brush to create a tint for the picture as well as used a glow to create a beautiful contrast between the city and the sky full of glowing stars.
In this project, I did the similar concept as my last art piece but this time I wanted the art piece to have a cherry blossom vibe to it. I did the sky from the movie Your Name which is a highly acclaimed movie. In this project I did the same process as the last one except used different types of filters instead of the camera raw and really tried to play with the levels and shadows to brighten up the feel of the picture. I also played with the paint brush to give the picture a hue of blue and tried to illuminate certain parts of the picture to make it "dream like".
This is my first After Effects project. In this project although in the surface it may seem like a small edit there were many steps that were taken to achieve it. I needed to learn how to use the program and gathered the footage for the edit. Some of things I had to accomplish for the edit was using the tracking tool to use the fire effect that I got from online and track this effect to my hand, another unique thing I used for this edit was a mask, I outlined my hand to make a mask on a certain layer and changed the blending option to ADD to increase the contrast between my hand and the flame there were also other tedious tasks needed for this edit.
