Day Ten

Bad Mail:
      This is the last of ten projects. The prompt was something that we wouldn't want to get in the mail. I think this would be pretty scary if I saw this when I opened my mailbox.

Day Nine

Literal Interpretations of Compound Words:
      I made a sunflower in the literal sense of the word with a picture of the sun, a bunch of flames, and a flower stem. I positioned it in the flower field so that it was almost in the sky like the sun.

Day Eight

Scary Signs:
      This was really easy. We were supposed to make a sign that was scary so here ya go.

Day Seven

      This was for the collaboration between Kangaroo Express and Apex High. Kangaroo was nice enough to give Apex students free Roocups as part of their launch this year! With a roocups you can get 25 cent sodas and slushies all summer long, so it's really awesome. Since our mascot is the cougar, I thought I'd photoshop an adorable baby cougar sipping on a Roocup.

Day Six

Something in Motion:
      I used motion blur for the rockets and the warp tool for the exhaust. Cool background courtesy of Google images.

Day Five

Scrambled Body Parts:
      It's like one of those hand puppets you draw on with sharpie to make talk, but with with actual eyes, eyebrows, and a mouth.

Day Four

Scribble Art:
      This was superrrr easy but it looks pretty cool. I used photoshop's masking to do this.
Here's one with some layer style effects added:

Day Two

Disney Superhero Mashup:
      Here is Rapunzel from Tangled as Catwoman from Batman. Since Catwoman has a whip it reminded me of Rapunzel's hair, although Wonder Woman has a lasso so that could have worked too...oh well. I had to get rid of her dress and some of her hair to get her Catwoman outfit to fit right and I added heels too.

Day One

      I guess you really are what you eat! This little mouse has been found to be made of cheese. Project for day one of "The Twelve Days of Photoshop" in Mr. Sands' class.

      Soooo....this is pretty self explanatory. It's a duck. And it's pink. But yeah I used Adobe Illustrator and the pen tool to "trace" a rubber duck. Then I used gradients to color it and there you go. The beak was the hardest part because of the overlapping etc.

Illustrator Flowers :)

      We made these by starting with a star shape and a radial gradient and then using pucker/bloat to make flowers and star things. It was fun to make all the different shapes and play around with different sizes and layers. I also put some random spirals in for the heck of it.

      Well I should have taken more pictures so it wasn't so choppy....and I'm still not quite sure on how to erase without messing everything up and/or making it all super tedious. But they're still cute and I'll hopefully do more in the future that are better than these.
