so this 'digital illustration' class i'm in right now is a complete joke. Haven't spent more than an hour working on a project yet...

Finals are due Thursday morning.....

I haven't started it yet. Actually, I have no clue what I should do.. So help a kid out...

Here's the thing - He said we can do ANYTHING we want. It has to involve compositing, masking or some other form of heavy digital manipulation. Can be real looking, surreal, completely fake, whatever.

No guidelines, no focus, no nothing. I fucking HATE assignments like this. Just give me a fucking task and i'll nail it down. Don't make me come up with a project out of the fucking air when I have no interest at all in whats going on here....

fucker.

Anyway, give a kid some ideas. it doesn't have to be shit I shot, I can use things from the internets, etc. Just has to be awesome.

ready... go!

play with variations and the difference blending mode. I had a lot of fun doing a project with that before.

pics of what you did?

It's not the phtotoshop part that's killing me, it's the 'subject'

the difference blending mode ain't gonna do shit on a black PS document...

have them stored on my external somewhere, but I think all I have left are the scans :mad: ..... to use the difference mode, duplicate the orig layer make your adjustments to and set the top layer to difference. You can def get some neat effects, let me see if I can't find those pics

i'm gonna fail this fucking class.

I can't think of a goddam thing.

I can shop just about ANYTHING I want, skill wise.

But my creativeness is at a fucking dead stop.

When turkeychicken said movie posters, these two immediately came to mind..

Seriously... ANYTHING....

These need to be printed and matted by Wednesday 7am.

or do some kind of fake "band" shot, but take a bunch of pics of yourself in random ass poses and compile them into one shot.

As for a movie poster, you could do the obvious horror flick type deal. All you really need is a stair case, large knife, a picture of someone and extensive use of the burn tool in photoshop. You could title the movie so it relates to your course number or something.

"Horror in PHO 220" or whatever

ok. Talked to the instructor... He was no help.

Said to do something that I feel strongly about, blah blah blah.

I don't really have a 'message' to send with my digital illustration....


Oh, and no text. Not allowed to use text....

convert some model shots to pinup?
convert some model shots to something sexy with a skyline in the background etc?

search a place like model mayhem for some of the stuff their "photoshop wizards" do and get some ideas that way?

:dunno:
