Project #1 Process

July 16, 2008

hi, people. I am going to present the process from one of my works from project #1. This image is about transform myself into a cyborg-like figure. I choose 3 images and combine them all together.

First, as you can see, I opened up these three images under PS3. (I saved the files as TIFF files first.)

Second, I desaturated both my face image (as “a” ) and the wires hole image (as “b” ) (making a B/W photo work is my intention on this project.) Then I dragged the a image to b image, and I transformed image b in order to fit on my face. (It’s really helpful if you set your overlap image capacity at 50%, you can move and set the image on the perfect spot without switch the layer visibility back and forward.)

Third, it’s time to have some fun, once I set image b on the perfect position, I start removing the boarder and the areas which I don’t want it. There are lots of ways to select the areas, such as masking tech, lasso tools, magic wand tool. In this case, I use both lasso tools and magic wand tool to select the area I want, and then inverse the selection area, then clear them all!

Forth, after some editing works, now it looks not that bad. But I still feel something missing here. So I drag one more layer on the image a. I resize, set the layer blending mode as “overlay.” This will provide a better aura and texture for the image.

Phew…finally, Here is the Final version!
