“Hollywood Up to No Good” Self-Portrait. The second one is the result of a tutorial I tried out: Karim Fakhoury Horror Movie tutorial from Digital Arts Magazine Website.
Painting and pen tool tutorial exercises. Special thanks to Aquasixio for “You Have Your Head in my Cloud” tutorial. Two layer painting with my first tablet and stylus. “Night Light” (the bird) tutorial reference with some stock imagery from Kate Rose.
“Mike N Ikes” Tutorial thanks to Adobe. Started adding more digital painting effects because so many people are now Instagraming and applying filters that I have to up my game!
“Egg World.” Thanks to Alphoart and google for the tutorial and stock imagery/ textures. It’s not exact, but I’m content with it.
I’ve been really into splitting my photos in half lately.
Inspirational artist: Rio Yanez. Early Feliz Dia de los Muertos. Dedicated in honor of the ones we lose but never stop holding in our hearts.
Chicago Public School Strike 2012. Brought to you by Enrico Fermi Elementary Art Educator Miss Hunter from the courtesy of the South-Side 70th & Stony Island. Featuring Fermi Teachers. This was my documentary.
Middle School Projects “Doodle for Google” and Recycled Robots. Will post the stop motion animations in time. We did some awesome Photoshop projects as well I hope to put up shortly.
Hydraulic car found at where I get my repairs.
The second photo was taken with my Droid, and edited in “Paper Camera” photo app, which I highly recommend for people that enjoy instant artistic filters.
Taken for the student that likes cars. I hope that you utilize what you learned from the “Fragment” assignment, and venture past the auto shows and into some junkyards. Think about your environment if the car is sitting still.
No it’s not the pen tool. I’d rather paint. Something I need to do more often. This was my first attempt at something like this, but I figured I should try to push myself as much as I pushed all of you. I used Advanced Photoshop Vol. 6 for a reference until I decided doing my own thing is more fun. I strongly recommend that magazine for anyone who is interested in graphic design and advertisement. You might only be interested in photography, but you will be a much better artist and a more well-rounded/ marketable professional if you can enhance your photographic background different skills.
By the way…
I just received your cards in the mail and was very touched. I wanted to let you know that out of all the cards I received, yours meant the most because I felt it was sincere. I was sorry to hear that you lost a classmate as well. No matter what your beliefs, or whether you have lost someone, loss is inevitable. I have lost a couple family members, and I wanted to share with you something I told my brother years after our dad passed away.
“Do you really think that someone that was always on the move like our dad is sitting still somewhere? No way man. I don’t think so. I think he’s still going, and I think we need to do the same. You are an original, so I think you should find out who that is and what that means to you, and do that all day everyday like nobody’s business. That is how you honor people you have lost. You carry them with you by always doing your very best, so that way if they are watching you will make them proud.”
