Haunted House

I started by shading the cartoon castle with the paintbrush tool and the paint bucket. Then I used the move tool to add in the ghosts and the girl. I filled in the girls dress, hair, skin, and face using the paint bucket tool. I also added some color to the ghosts using the paintbrush.

Bird Coloring Page

I used an online picture of a bird coloring page and filled it with realistic looking feathers. I used softer looking feathers around the face and more textured feathers on the wings and body. Then I used the paint bucket to fill in the eye and beak.

Peacock Kaleidoscope

For my Peacock Kaleidoscope, I used: the paintbrush tool, paint bucket tool,  gradient tool and patter tool, to create different textures and styles in the kaleidoscope. Each peacock has a different design and color scheme. I tried to use colors that worked together and stood out against the black background.

Where's Hannah?

For my Where's Waldo project, I added things that described me and things that I enjoy. I used the magic wand tool and the selection tool to select what I wanted in an image. I also used the erase tool to erase unwanted things that were accidentally selected. Using many layers, I was able to move things around to make it more interesting. In my Where's Hannah, I hid four normal Waldos and myself as Waldo. Can you find them?

Black Panther

One of my favorite animals is the Black Panther, so for the Albrecht Dürer assignment I choses to do a Black Panther. I started by dropping out the background to isolate the panther. Then I filled in the background with a black and white pattern. Using the graphic pen tool, I then added texture to the panther itself.

Edawrd Gorey

Using the black and white color scheme, I drew the body of the young girl, standing around the banana trees, by hand. I used a stencil for the head, though. I also used the stencil tool to create the banana trees, the bananas on the tree, the sun, and the banner. I used the texted tool to create and write my poem on the banner.

Jamie Grace Coloring Page

For my celebrity coloring page, I chose to do a picture of Jamie Grace. I used the paintbrush at size three to outline her entire form. First, I started with her basic outline: hair, eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, and outline of her outfit. Then I went back and added more detail to her outfit, hair and earrings.

Cartoon Yourself

For my cartoon yourself, I did a picture of my friend, Cambria, and I. We took the picture at school using Photo Booth. I used the eyedropper tool to bring in colors from the original picture to fill in the cartoon versions of ourselves. We love books, so I placed us in a library that I dropped in using the move tool.

The Coast at Amalfi By Ivan Aivazovsky

Using the eyedropper tool to get colors from the original painting, and added them to my picture. I used the smudge tool to blend the colors and shadings together. I was not able to fit in all of the details but tried to stay as close to the original as possible.

Scream Part 2

After completing my Scream Part 1, I dropped in my face. Using the magnetic lasso tool to outline my face, I then used the move tool to place it in my Scream. I decided not to use any filters and to just keep it simple so that you can still see the the details in the background.

Scream Part 1

For my Scream, I tried to make him look as much like the original painting as possible. I used the eyedropper tool to take colors from the original painting to put into my version of Scream. Then I blended the colors together using the gradient fill. After, I used the smudge tool to make the colors look more wispy.

Mona Lisa

In my Mona Lisa, I add a few personal things to show a little bit about myself. I placed her in a bookstore, by using the move tool, because I love books. I also added her holding one of the books that I enjoyed. I created a new layer, then erasing some of the book to make it look like she is actually holding the "The Giver". I changed her hair color and made it curly by placing it behind the image. Using the eyedropper tool to make her dress my favorite color, blue.
