Similar to movie posters or motivational artwork these images will be made with inspirational quotes or music lyrics and a portrait.
Using the TEXT tool and the STROKE option you will add humorous references to your images.
In this assignment we will take portraits from the internet or your own (I prefer your own!) and use the PEN tool in Photoshop to create illustrative portraits.
Using the LAYERS and MASK you could even insert other pictures (or portraits of other people) into another face.
Adobe Photoshop already comes pre-loaded with several BRUSH options. So far we have just used a round soft or hard edge brush but for this assignment we will load a custom brush that represents SMOKE.
Please follow the directions given to complete the 6 Smoke Brush images.
We will also use the same technique using a PARTICLE brush and complete 6 Particle Brush images
Combining multiple images to create a photographic illustration is the goal of this assignment. Fusing photographs of your choice should depict a clear vision and creativity.
When Warhol began to experiment with screenprinting in the 1960’s, the practice was not a widely used medium. It was a lengthy process that required an exorbitant amount of patience and a keen eye for detail. It was also not unanimously understood as an art form, due to the interference of a machine, which created skepticism by many whose traditional views of art required direct contact between the artist and his choice medium. The replication of pop figures and celebrities was done in a variety of colors and mass produced into large panels.
Assignment: You will take 6 images and create a panel of Warhol inspired digital silkscreen panels.
