This is another 'new animal' that I made. I really like this project. :D


Two days ago, we (the class) we assigned to make a newimal. A new animal. Haha. ':/
I decided to make a 'horse fly', a combo of a horse (obviously) and a butterfly. Using tools such as eraser, magic wand, etc... I added a background and faded the horse/wings to match the background and 'fade in'.
I really like this one, I feeel like I did better than the frog picture (ugh). It looks cool and I really like its wings.
If I do this again, I would like to try morphing a human with something. Maybe make a fairy or mermaid...?

Just for kicks and giggles

Because we learned this and I had some time after I made this blog... This isn't an actual project we had to do.


Yesterday we learned about stuff like the burn tool and the clone tool on photoshop. We used them to combine a woman's face (I hope that's a woman) and a frog. You made her tongue look like a frog was emerging from her tongue and going to crawl up her face.
I think it turned out meh... Yes. Meh. I don't think it looks realistic enough to be good. I need to work on shadows and figure out that stupid clone tool. I don't like it.
I would definitely add the tattoo I wanted on it, but I didn't have the time to do so... :/ I would definitely take more time on it in general.

Biting Pancakes

This was created as my first assignment in my Computer Art and Animation class at school. COOLEST CLASS EVER!!!!!
Basically you're using Adobe Photoshop CS4 the whole time so if you ever wish to try... :D Good luck!
What we were supposed to do was find a normal picture of pancakes and warp it to look like it would bite you back if you tried to eat it.
We found the picture and then uploaded it to photoshop. Then took the smudge tool and stretched it to around the size of a mouth. Taking the mouth of a snakehead, we inserted it into the space and then used the eraser tool (on a low opacity) to allow the color to blend and look a little more natural. Then we smudged again to cause it to look more realistic and then changed the color slightly with another tool that I don't know what it was... Sorry!
We were allowed to add our own touches so I added eyes. Turn it into a jpeg and VIOLA! This picture. I am highly amused by this picture. It looks like a mix of cookie monster and a pirhana...
If I did this one again, I'd redo the eyes. Or at least the eye on the left, I didn't have as much time on that one because the bell was about to ring and I had to finish it up quickly.
I feel like I've written a novel sooo.... Adios!
