Classical "Painted" Portrait

In this project we had to find a picture and use filters to make it look like the picture was actually painted, so I used a filter and adjusted the lighting and shades so that it looked like the picture was painted.

Creative Blurring

In this assignment we had to choose and image and blur the back round but keep the foreground 
focused. I really liked this project because I think the effect dramaticizes the image and makes it more interesting.

For this assignment I took a bunch of pictures of myself and then I put filters on them

This project shows the evolution of the horse. A foal, adult, and then to old.

CandyLand Landscape

We had to create an imaginary candy land for this project, so I used many different
layers of different sweets to create this scene.

In this assignment, I had to add myself to a masterpiece. So I chose to add
 myself to the Mona Lisa and use filters
to make it look like I'm really supposed to be there.

Repetition Used in a Creative Way

In this project, we had to use repetition, patterns and such, to create a picture. So I took one image
of flowers and laid them over each other to create a pattern.  

Who's in our School?

For this assignment we had to add characters into our school. So, I added Mario characters.

Disproportionate Picture

This picture is a disproportionate photo, meaning things that should be small or large
in real life, aren't in the photo. For example, the bee should be small compared to the 
elephant, but since it's a disproportionate picture, it isn't. 

Seven Wonders of the World

In project, I had to photoshop myself into one of the world'd wonders. I chose the Pyramid
at Giza because I've always wanted to visit Egypt.

In this assignment, I had to create an animal incorporating five into one. The animal that I created
is a mix between a horse, a tiger, a butterfly, a zebra, and snails. I call it the "Zigerailfly".

This room started out as empty, but I filled it in with many things I enjoy. Such as art, animals, and my phone. I also added things I want like a vanity and a night stand.

Colorize a Black and White Ansel Adams Image

This photograph was originally taken by Ansel Adams as a black and white image, but for this
assignment I colored it in with a low opacity as to not make it look cartoony. 

Colorize a Black and White Image

For this project, I found a black and white picture off of Tumblr, and using a low opacity, I 
colored in and shaded the flowers and back round.

Picasso-esque Cubist Digital Portrait

In this assignment, I added many different parts of the face to one, just as Picasso did in his work.

Surrealist Digital Portrait

My surrealist digital portrait is a food lady, she is entirely made of food and 
nothing else. She really needs to brush her teeth though... 

Surrealist Digital Landscape

For my surrealist landscape, I tried to make it as full of funny, pointless things as I could. This way, 
it would be very interesting and amusing.

together, just like she did.

Formal/Informal Balance Art Rage Assignment

For this assignment I chose to use an informal balance. You can tell because if I folded this 
in half, the designs would not be the same on both sides.

Street Art

My street art project pretty much has no meaning at all...:) I was having trouble coming up with ideas
so behold: a pair of lips drinking root beer.

Rothko-esque Art Rage

For this assignment I had to draw something that was similar to the famous  Mark
Rothko. The colors have to look like they are "floating on top of each other". So I
used lots of blending tools such as the paint roller and the blending knife to 
make it look this way.

Bruno Mars.

9 Panel Comic

My 9 panel comic is a story about the "Over Worked Mom". She's almost like a super hero. One 
minute she's lecturing her kid about not drawing on the fence, the next minute she's giving her 
husband exercise tips. (You may need to click on and zoom in to read.)

Colored/Shaded Scene of Cartoon

In my cartoon I drew a family, three children and one mother, playing in the garden.

and blend them together. This way, the bird looks a little bit more real.

In the Kaleidoscope assignment I tried to use a lot of colors that blended nicely
with each other. So I used a series of blues, purples, and greens, and used 
a chalk board filter for the back round. 

Where's Waldo Assignment

I think this assignment was one of my favorites, it was sort of a collage that we had 
to create and incorporate our favorite things into it. Then we had to put ourselves as 
"Waldo" into it, can you find me?

Albrecht Durer Assignment

In this assignment, I have a picture of a dog that looks almost like it's carved in wood grain. 
 I had tried to find a picture that looked like a picture of my dog, Murphy. Then,
I used filters to make the dog look like it was carved in wood grain, as I said before, and 
I used a special filter in the back round to make the dog stand out more.

In this assignment, I had to draw a little scene related to a sentence
that rhymes with my name. So, my parents don't drive a Tribecca, 
but I used the sentence, " R is for Rebecca who drives a Tribecca"

For the "Cartoon Yourself Assignment" I pretty much just tried to copy how I looked, and

Cartoon Version of Masterpiece

For this assignment we had to take a masterpiece and either copy it, or add a cartoon
face into it. So I added the face of Mickey Mouse to the masterpiece Madam 
Matisse, the Green Line by Henri Matisse.

your own face into the drawing. I also added a filter that

sunset a little bit though.
