work in progress

This is a sample of what’s to come with the final project.  The resolution of this image is actually way lower than the actual image I’m working on, I had to convert it into a smaller size in order for flikr to upload it.  I’m going to be working with many more layers on top of this, but this is to give an example of the colors and texture I’ll be working towards.

Final Project Proposal

For my final project, I think I want to explore photo collages and manipulation of photos through Photoshop. Thinking back on all of the projects, I feel like I had the most fun and got the best project out of the Photoshop collage.  It really caters to my visual mind in the best way, and I really like having the control of manipulating each layer in just the way I want.  I want to incorporate textures from paintings I’ve made and create an abstract piece in which I use the manipulation tools of Photoshop to create atmospheric elements and elaborate designs.  I want it to be highly colorful and full of texture and motion.  Perhaps I will include some content that are recognizable objects or icons, but I still haven’t necessarily figured out exactly what concept I want to branch out from.  Obviously, the composition and use of color will be considered, as well as the use of layers and transparency.  Basically, I want it to send your eyes on a deep trip of awesome, color, texture, and magic.  There’s probably going to be a lot going on with this piece…and I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Stop Motion Animation

I had many problems with this project.  But, I don’t want to make any excuses, so this is what I ended up making for you guys.  This has happened to me so many times, and it always scares the crap out of me.  While making the animation, I had a lot of trouble with the physical markers for the dry erase board, it was super annoying when they all of a sudden decided that they weren’t going to write anymore. FramebyFrame wouldn’t work for me either, so these are all digital stills. Also, the dry erase board itself was hard to keep in a constant spot, it kept moving as I went to draw on it and thusly, it looks all shaky and gross. Overall, it was good to have the patience to complete it, and to learn how to grasp the way things move when you do it frame by frame.

Animations I found…

This is a cute stop-motion animation that serves as a wedding invitation. Vampire Weekend is pretty awesome, too.

This is the music video for “Mykonos” by Fleet Foxes.  I really like the lighting effects throughout the video.  I also like the way he handled distance, perspective and transparency.
