I decided to work on ”Underworld”

Underworld, basically is the earth under a man . I think most of people who think about the ”earth” would also related(get the mind as) to the word ”World”. The original meaning is exactlly different with this picture , but I think it’s a good way to show.  

The original photos:


Integrating Practice-Eyeglasses

10 Mar

This is my work for a visual pun-creating eyeglasses

My topic is ”BLUE” 

The original photos that I used: (from Google Images)

-About the horizontal line…

As you see , I didn’t actually draw a line in the image .

I make the background of the bottom part turn darker , and it really works which appear with a line in the image.

Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Hybrid assignment

5 Mar

1. -What’s Hybrid?

In the general analysis ,

the offspring of two animals or plants of different breeds,varieties,species,or genera, especially asproduced throughhuman manipulation for specific genetic characteristics.(dictionary.com)

We can also say that hybrid is also related to art , which mix two or more different elements together and produce a new creation(combination).

2. -Some Hybrids We Know

Mule , is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse. Horses and donkeys are different species, with different numbers of chromosomes.(Wikipedia)

cama is a hybrid between a male dromedary camel and a female llama, produced via artificial insemination at the Camel Reproduction Centre in Dubai.


3. I would combine white horse horse and bird together.

The landscape(I think it’s from Space ;D)

MY HYBRID!

I named it the ”Horbir”

(Sorry the name is not showing on my work,my PS is not working so well at home..I will try it later.)


PSD:(Sorry there is Chinese…lol)

I make this hybrid like an alien who lives in the Space.

I combined the white horse and bird together , it shows good when they are both in the colour of white.(And they both looks gracegul XD.)

I cut the horse’s head down(0oops sounds strange ;d) and paste it on the bird’s body.

Basically you can see some layers for the same image of the ”Horbir” , because I want to see which size is the best to fit the background.

I used some filters to make it looks brighter , and also used the brush from the Tool to modify the colours in the photo.

I try to use the filter called ”Blur” to make the background looks blurred so it can make the Horbir become a focal point…

but it does not really work so I didn’t blur it.

I think this assignment is very fun that we can mix different species together and make a new animal or plant.

The difficult of this assignment..I think is to search the animals or plants that we are going to mix for hybrid , because it’s not that easy to match the species.

what we really need is our imagination. 🙂
