These are the different Photo effects. The top left one is a Sepia. Sepia is a colored black and white effect, so that instead of it being black in white it is blue and white. The top right is a black and white effect. This effect is self-explanatory. The middle left is an emphasis effect. It focuses on one point in the picture, which in this case is the eyes. The middle right is a double exposer effect. This is when two different images are in the same photo. This double exposer has Castiel and a night sky. The bottom left is a boat in hand effect. This is when a photo seems like someone is holding something when they actually are not. The last effect is silhouette which is when you see the shape but not the actual features.
This is a photoshop of a chair. It was normal before I thought the word armchair. I got a bunch of pictures of arms and hands and I used a chair as a base. I then modified the arms and hands to fit the base of the chair. Once i got them all into place I turned off the chair layer and this was the outcome. The Armchair was born.
Trompe l'beil means art that fools the eye. This one in particular is moulage. Moulage is art that looks like a wound and is used mostly for training anyone in the medical field. To create the picture shown you must get some paint,silicon, toothpicks, and q-tips. First apply the silicone( or supplement if allergic to silicone) to the intended area of the body. Next make a cut where the silicon is. Thirdly lift up the silicon and add yellow paint around the scratch. Make sure to smear it with a bit of red to give it a bruised effect. Lastly add liquidy red and black paint to the open area for blood or a scabby area.
The issues with photoshopping magazines
This was a quick photoshop of a fat duck. It is now skinny. Something similar to this happens very often in magazines. The authors of the magazine photoshops average people(normally females) to look"prettier". Some people are 100% against this,don't know, or don't care. I personally do not really care if a company photoshops someone to look different as long as no one tries to do it in real life. Some people try to look like photoshopped models when in reality it is impossible. That is not ok.
Elements and Principles of art
Art can be many things. You can create a sculptor or painting and it can be called art. thats what it is: making something. Thats why I like art, it means you can create something. Art gives you freedom of creativity and an outlet for anything.
