I had to do a self portrait assignment for Digital Imaging class
and the first part I cannot post here because we had to put ourself into a famous painting
but the second one we could do anything.
I've never been quite fond of self portraits so I decided to do something easy take a photo I already had of myself and then took a patch of tiger fur from one of my photos I took at the Cincinatti zoo and overlayed it on
I did edit some of the stripes to make them longer and or shorter and add new ones. I also took out my eyebrow since one of the stripes kinda took that area over anyways. I then proceeded to make my eye more cat like which I then ended up taking a photo of my cat Beau's eye
After getting a photo of his eye I shaped it to the area I wanted as well as dialated the pupil more.
I actually am not too fond of this picture...it was really easy to make and I didn't put that much effort into it...but what do you know my prof. just loved it
she gave me a 100 and stated
"Eye creates a strong focal point...interesting use of line in highlights of hair(veritcal) and stripes on fur/skin(horizontal) and curling lines of flowers."
so it looks like if I don't like the outcome of my image she will love it.
