Todays words are……Breathe and Frightened!!!
They’re cool words together…am thinking this could be another dark kinda image…hmmm….or maybe not!!! I need tea and thinking!!!
So..turns out youtube wont play most Beatles songs, so gonna listen to some Bowie instead!!
I have been thinking about todays words…and am kind of thinking I could maybe try taking a photograph of a person in a dark room but with a hint of light around their face and then I could try to create a kind of smokey skull image in photoshop…then combine them to make it look like the person is breathing it out!
Oh….something cool happened today. A few days before I started this project I emailed Steve Simpson, explained what I was doing and asked him for two words….He emailed me back today!!! Am not sure what I’m going to do with them now though!!
Time for some photoshop tutorials I think!
So…I have done this…now have to to figure out how to make it smokey looking!!
Im back…I’v been off taking photos of smoke!!!
While I was gone I was thinking about what to do with the words I have received from Steve Simpson….and I reckon the best thing to do with them is keep them for the last day…..So it will be like a Bonus Steve Simpson kinda day!!! This one will be different because I know what the words are and so I will have a little while to think about it!!!! Hmmmmm….hopefully I can think of something good!! So thats my plan for that.
Ha…how cool is that!!!
Anyway…back to today….My plan is to mess around with some of the photographs and then merge them with the skull illustration!!!
This may be a disaster but its worth a try!!
So…this is kinda what happened with one of the photos…
Messing in photoshop…
So…I have to go home for a while …Im still messing around with this image…am not sure!!
Im back for more messing in photoshop!
Nah….got nothin!! Am getting kicked out of college and am going home to finish! I reckon I need to redraw a skull with a smokey kinda paintbrush!!
Think I’m done!
Right…so that didn’t go as planned! Oh well…tomorrow is another day!
Afterthoughts: Hmmmmmm…it kinda worked and it kinda didn’t. I definitely would have needed a few more hours to finish the piece to how I wanted it to look!
