Homework 10: Scrollrama

Homework 11: Isotope- still working on it

Homework 12: Transitional- no chance of starting

I’d obviously like to have my last two projects dropped because they just don’t exist. You haven’t seen my Game Salad game- it’s similar to whack-a-mole with a 30 second timer and sharks instead of moles because everyone hates sharks. You have also not seen my Scrollarama, of which I am very proud so please look. I think it’s a great promotional-type site for my work. Everything is clickable also which is pretty cool. I’d like an A in this class because I think you can definitely see improvement in my work. I’m doing to do a little defending now:

My Parallax was intentionally dark and moody and I decided not to change it. I searched out those photos and shopped them to all look like that, so I’m sticking by that choice because I still like it. It’s Night Before Christmas-y

My Ecommerce site could definitely use more words, but I still think it’s pretty eegant while being functional and simple

My slider is one of my favorites because I started to shoot for these projects instead of searching for images. It was motivational

My Scrollarama is my favorite. It’s simple and matches my site and is pretty

Anywho, this class was really great and I will definitely be taking more web design classes, most likely after I graduate. I’m even considering a graduate degree… what have you done?!

Have a great Christmas!

Worth 1000 images

Image 1

I think this picture is awesome. Being born on Halloween, I’ve always been into demonic and dark imagery. I love the concept of taking something so simple and cute, like a small white bunny, and adding a demonic twist to the image. The photoshop work is great as it’s simple and clean.


Image 2

This image reminds me a lot of my childhood, which was spent playing in the woods behind my house. One of my favorite things to do in the summer was group up with some friends and catch snapping turtles. This picture does a great job emphasizing the point of snapping turtle teeth. Although they are not quite like this, when your hand goes anywhere near their mouth, this is the exact feeling and image that will immediately pop into your head, as once they bite your finger it’s quite a task getting it back.

Image 3

Being a dirt biker, this image really catches my attention. The way the artist took a simple image of a dirt bike and added a fiery explosion to the back end of the bike looks awesome. I also like the color chosen in this image as it’s darkened and really pushes out the colors of the flames.

Image 4

As my final image, it’s another fiery demon like picture. I’m also fascinated by fire and the way it moves throughout images. I love the way the fire morphs into a demon face, but it also has some magical effects mixed in. The photoshop done on this image is pretty wild and I think it does a great job capturing how the artist can really make some of these images come to life.

Heres my home work

Homework 2

My favorite images on the Worth 1000 photoshopping contests, to name a few were:

One is because I love fairies. Two her wings are amazingly done. Three is the landscape is cool looking. Four the fish with the key in its mouth is an idea that is interesting.

One is because it is amazingly created, it looks like I am looking at a real person with a real lotus flower in her hand. Two the background colors and cloud-like look.

It has some amazing details, including the outfit, the wings, and the position the body it in. It has a calming feeling about it.

The image has a nicely done layout to it with where the fairy was place, as well as how she was place in. The colors are prefect for this sad scene. It was rendered amazingly.

This give the feeling of something that would come out of a child’s story book. The layout is cool with all the butterflies around the fairy.

It is amazingly done. The wing look real like I could really touch them. The fairy is in a realist pose other then a fake one.

It gives off a feeling of importance. The dress is cool looking, I would love to wear it.

I see Odette from the movie The Swan Princess. Dress from a dress-up game. The wings make prefect the dress and the female.

Homework 2

My favorite image from the Worth1000 is called Darth Homer It’s funny, and is well rendered! It looks quite realistic.. well, as realistic as Hoer Simpson in a Darth Vader suit can be!

And here is my second assignment:

Written Assignment:


This image, dubbed Hot Air Balloon, effectively uses Photoshop to blend and juxtapose an elephant with a hot air balloon, creating an interesting composition with an old time hint. Because of the unlikeliness of these two objects being joined, we are shocked at first, but due to the design with strong lines following the bridge and elephants nose, our eye travels all over the piece.


Flamingo Explorer is the shape of a bird, made of metal and wood objects, floating on top of water. I was drawn to this piece due to the impossible nature of its composition: hooks and fans, lights and barrels, wires and widgets, all making up a curious, goofy-looking bird.  The effective blending of all of the gadgets that make up the bird creates a very believable image with plenty to attract the eye.


Tyrannosaurus Rex is made up of smoke rising from a cigarette, curling to form the skeleton of the dinosaur it’s named after.  The flat back background limits the depth, focusing our eye on the angled billows of smoke creating the interesting dinosaur. It’s believable bone structure is effectively made up of rising smoke, with strong angles that pull the eye up and down again.


New York, New York is a beautiful piece picturing the demise, or evolution, of New York City. The image is split in half, with the waterline dividing the gorgeous sky from the submerged city.  It’s evenly balanced with the strong verticals of the two buildings reaching into the sky dividing the page horizontally and the flying vehicles adding some balance to the darker top left corner of the page.


Beauty effectively joins two chameleon-type lizards to share the same body. The artist affectively blends their bodies together, making it seem like the two heads are each looking at their own prey. Although the bugs aren’t portrayed entirely too accurately or realistically, the beautiful creature they have created makes up for it.


This final image from Worth’s 1000 Photoshop contest is Smith&Canon. It beautifully joins a camera and its different parts with the body and shape of a pistol. Due to the similar materials they are both made out of, we are able to join them without trouble in our mind. Its simply done and effective at the same time.

Homework 2 part deux, favorite images

1. Bolivian Blue Bean Brew

I was originally attracted to this image because I like the color blue and I like coffee. But I appreciate how the designer used the old maps and the burlap bags to add more texture and dynamism to the composition. It;s also interesting how the inclusion of these images evokes concepts of trade and international market– from the beans to the brew. And the blue coffee swirl is nicely executed.


2. Corona Blue

Again, I like the color blue. I am impressed with the creator’s ability to convincingly render the beer color to blue. Also, their inclusion of “Azul” under the Corona label is a nice touch. I didn’t even notice at first that they had changed that because it was done so seamlessly. I also like the creativity in including “Azul.”


3. Vegas girl

I really like the concept behind this image. The roulette wheel really looks an eye. The added sensitivity to lighting (the highlight on the roulette wheel and the shadow from the eyelashes) really enhances the overall believability of this piece, as well as the rim of red around the “iris.” Another great area of sensitivity to detail is in the treatment of the card symbols. They really look like they are painted onto this girl’s skin. I don’t know how they achieved such a realistic effect: It looks more complicated than simple blending modes. The bend of the painted symbols with the movement of the flesh, the corresponding highlights, and the perspective (enhanced by blurring) push this image into a realm of possibility, rather than improbability.

4. Water Babies?

This little bug is so convincing. It does look like it is made out of water. The way it holds and distorts a reflection of the leaves behind it, the texture of fallen rain over its body, and the splashing drop of rain are nice touches that increase the realism of this piece.


I just think this one is funny, but also convincing. I would like to have a fuzzy frog. Although I think the artist rendered the textures convincingly, I feel it could’ve benefited from more attention to shading. There are parts of the frog’s body that feel more like an applied pattern rather than fur on a living creature. I think the blue lacks the most necessary detail. And the eye could be more convincingly integrated into the body of the furry frog.

Worth 1000

One of my favorite pieces from the Worth 1000 website was this one. I like the serene feel of the setting the two mythical girls are placed in and how the ray of sunlight seems to be shining down between the two of them. The horns, hoofed feet, and tails are very well blended into the photographs of the two girls.


Another one of my favorite pieces was the fairy one. What I liked about this was the use of mixed media (photography and painting). I really enjoyed the color scheme because it gave off a very peaceful vibe. I also like how the background isn’t focused except for on the flowers and the main focus is on the girl.


A third piece I liked was this odd one. What I liked about this one was the humor factor that’s relayed in the caption of the piece. I also liked the background of the piece because it’s kind of vibrant, but still peaceful at the same time.


A final piece I found interesting was this ghost ship one. This caught my attention because of the contrast between the woman’s white dress and the white ship against the very dark background. The water is so beautiful and peaceful as there seems to be something a little morbid going on in the piece. I really liked the detail and attention paid to the hair and dress of the woman, giving them both dimension.


Homework 2


This is a favorite submission of mine. It is a creative idea executed flawlessly with very impressive Photoshop skills. This is really an image that I admire. When I look at it I hope that someday I will be able to create such a realistic rendering in Photoshop. The reflective metal surfaces are especially impressive because of the warped image of the complicated ground pattern within them. The concept, too, is an exciting one. The thought of robotic creatures duking it out in a post apocalyptic wasteland really sparks the imagination.

This is another favorite of mine. I’m a huge sucker for both Star Wars and The Simpsons, so seeing such a well executed combination of the two is very satisfying. The image is a combination of cartoony and realistic Photoshop styles, which is appropriate. It’s clever the way Darth Vader’s mask is transformed into Homer’s teeth. Like the first image, I really admire the reflective surfaces on this Photoshop.

This is another excellent Photoshop. Once again, the reflective surfaces have suckered me into this image. The highlights on the ant create a convincing morning dew effect in their mimicry of the droplets on the surrounding leaves. Like the first image, this one really sparks the imagination. It’s fun to think of a world full of water ants, and maybe even water people.

Here are my favorites from Worth 1,000.

I like this one because this summer I worked a lot with making women wearing dresses where the drapery folds were made out of different patterns of clouds, but this took it in a different direction by actually making forms with volume make out of clouds. I might try that now if I can figure it out.

I of course love this one, as an art history major. They take old paintings and play with layering. It’s interesting because I would never think to break the rules like that but there’s no harm done on the computer. Also it relates well to the way I paint and how many of the paintings were made because I work in oils in very thin translucent layers, much like photoshop. It’s a modern translation of the spirit of the old media.

The first two of these peeling and cracking entries, the fruit and the foot, are very well done. There’s a tremendous amount of detail in these images. They really look like the 3-D objects were carefully crafted and then photographed.

These first few buildings made of manipulated natural forms are really awesome because the artists pushed their creativity further than just coming up with super great architecture. With something like photoshop you can really change the way the whole world looks. It’s worth it to go the extra mile and address how each little part of the image works with the whole.

I enjoyed these because I collect stamps and spend a lot of time looking at stamp and letter design in general around the world. It’s nice to keep it relevant by making it a photoshopping contest. I especially like the one with the Browsers (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) because I see parallels in both topic and design in old stamps that I have.

And lastly, if anyone has had an art class with me before, they’ve seen me turn in a project with an old antique lamp in it like these. I love painting and drawing glass and I just love the structure. I’ve never tried anything digital with them before though. The first one just creeps me out it looks so real. The light almost lines up perfectly that I’m not even sure if that’s where the artist merged images or if I’m just not understanding all of the light sources.

Worth 1000

I enjoyed this assignment because my first experiences with Photoshop were with photo manipulation and editing. I’ve never heard of this website before, and looking at all the work by other artists allowed me to see to see other people’s styles of photo editing. Here are the works that stood out the most to me:


Berry Lips by jclarkedesigns. Initially I was drawn to the photo because of the strawberry and I wanted to see how it was manipulated as a beauty product. I really like the fact that the designer put the strawberry seeds on the lips too because that makes it look like a realistic product and added texture to a smooth image. The contrast of the red with the skin and white background really helped catch my attention as well. When looking through so many images at once, that is what really drew me to this piece. Its simplicity is what makes it effective for me. It looks very well put together and professional, and the use of Photoshop isn’t obvious and poorly blended (which is a pet peeve of mine) so seeing the flawless combination of elements definitely made it one of my favorites.


Daisy with a Pearl Earring by whiteducks. I like this photo because the idea was creative in combining a cartoon character with a famous painting, and the end result looks very nice. The added cracking of the paint and canvas on top of the photoshopped portion, the changed color palette from the original painting, and the shadowing make the Daisy Duck figure look as if it was meant to be there.


The last dance by AlbertMuda. I love the creativity of using the mushroom as a skirt/dress, and the texture of the mushroom makes convincing clothing. The color of the top on the woman was well planned for making the photoshopping process look flawless. Also, I like the choice of the woman laying down like that because it looks like she is sitting. It looks much more realistic with the mushroom image than the others in that section with a similar idea.


This was a cool website and after doing this assignment, I definitely want to look into it more.
