Here is the link to my infographic:



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.
