Georgia O'Keeffe Painting

Using the paintbrush tool, I used different shades of reds, pinks and purples on the petals. I blended the colors together using the blur tool and smudge tool. I blended different shades of yellows and oranges with the smudge tool and blur tool. At the very center, I used different shades of a dark purple and blended them together with the smudge tool.

Creating a New Logo

I enjoy watching shows like Castle and Once Upon a Time which are on ABC. For my logo, I colored the background a light metallic blue and made everything on it darker. On the ABC logo, I added other logos from different channels that might interest the watcher. ABC has a family channel and a news channel, that is why I added the "family" stencil and "news" stencil on either side of main icon.

Post-Impressionist Portrait

For my portrait, I used an image that I had taken for my digital photography card. I used a special effect brush to create the dotted texture it created on the image. I used colors from the original picture to create dots of the same color. This gave the image the post-impressionist look.

Formal/Informal Balance

For my informal balance picture, I colored the wall brown and smoothed it down using the smudge tool. Then I created stencils of floral wallpapers. I placed them in opposite corners to make the different on both sides. On the left, I also added another floral design to make the differences stand out more.

Post-Impressionist Landscape

I used a waterfall as my landscape. I used colors from the picture to make it look as much like the origanal image as possible. I used one of the special effect brushes to create the dotted texture in the image.

Street Art Piece

I love to read and I decided to do a book quote for my street art. I dropped a cement wall into ArtRage and created a stencil out of the book quote. When I had positioned the stencil the way I wanted, I used the spray paint tool and, using a dark blue color, I filled in the letters trying to make them look as messy as possible.

Stencil: Rhythm/Movement

For my rhythm/movement project, I used the smudge tool to blend a matalic white into the background. Then I placed a snowflake stencil on top in a pattern. Slowly, I filled in the snowflakes with a light matalic blue.

Rothko-esque Painting

For my Rothko-esque, I blended three different blues together, using the smudge tool, to create an ocean feel in the background. On top, I blended an orange, yellow and pink together using the smugde tool, creating a sunset feeling. 

Celebrity With an Animal Name: Anjellyfish Jolie

For my celebrity with an animal name, I did Angelina Jolie and cropped her head into a jellyfish. I created Anjellyfish Jolie. I added the movie title "Maleficent" to the background because it is one of the movies that she is well known for. Then I added a picture frame around it to make it look more fancy.

Felt Tip Drawling: Castle

For my felt tip drawling, I drew a the two main characters, Castle and Beckett, from one of my favorite TV shows "Castle". I drew most of the picture and traced hands and shoes. Then I scaned the image and began coloring it, to make it look similar to the origanal. I dropped in the wood flooring and wall texture, the green wallpaper,my Beckett and Castles hair and the carpet. I used the paint bucket to fill in the stairs, clothing, shoes and skin tone.

Nine Pannel Comic

For my nine panel comic, I wanted to have an origanal theme. I took characters from my favorite Disney movie, "Tangled", and put them into an old castle. I used the select tool to cut out all of the characters. I also used the paintbrush and paint bucket to create them backgrounds.
