I just was amazed how easy it is to make the pattern look seamless without any further adding and working on the borders. I remember this course from last year that the pattern was made in a very different way. Here its only to choose the right image and the right cut to get it look interesting. I took some pics from a Photographer friend of mine that i am allowed to use and was blown away how fast and easy you can make a really nice stemless seeming pattern from an image. Not much to write but much to do this time! I did many and posted those i found best as kaleidoscope and as pattern.Thanks for the really good lecture .
After watching the life class i had to do some more and i found that it is really very important to zoom in a lot and make them fit a hundred Percent exact. Even one point not matching makes the pattern uneven. Good workflow is to create the first square (I used 2000px X2000px for the final and 1002 px X 1002 px for the four images, 1002 because in order not to get a white line you need to overlap a little and still it needs to fill the 2000px a 100 Percent. ) Inspired from Ross images i used our stones in the desert and will for sure create many and use them! I guess in the end i will even be able to load some to CC for everybody to use.
And of course i needed to test the plus that Hilde showed. To use a brush . Go to Brush choose one and click on the butterfly in the toolbar above and choose Mandala . Be surprised!!! That's amazing and i can t stop to play with this,
And there is endless options to fill, you can scale and if you go from the toolbar panel edit to fill with pattern you can choose a script and fill different. I found a new playground!!
Cubism is like standing at a certain point on a mountain and looking around. If you go higher, things will look different; if you go lower, again they will look different. It is a point of view. (Jacques Lipchitz)
- No perspective
- showing objects from various angles
- flat, two-dimensional surface
- breakdown of the subject into cubes and other geometric forms
- rhythms of shapes colors and patterns
After the australian session i got so many ideas (those that stuck with ideas watch Ross a lot he brings so good examples from his students from himself and from the internet) so i just did the assignment for this class. I did two images one like organic science fiction cubism one a geometric division from many variations from my face from different directions. I actually used on both images the same series of photos i took on my new google Pixel 3 phone! The result is completely different. And i am sure i could fins many more variations if i had time...i enjoyed this assignment a lot and i enjoy to divide and scale my already so not symmetric face...
For this image i followed the following tutorial its really good even if its not for a person. But the fact to use inner shadow makes it look very cubistic.
For this one i combined all layers from different images with gradients to get the impression its just one image. i scaled a lot worked with the liquefy filter and layer styles. In the end i did all black and white with tint and added to overlaying space backgrounds.
I really like composition and mainly double exposure there is so many ways to do it. I followed the tutorial of Hilde in the class and i wonder why she did not use clipping masks. I created two different versions with different use of images and shapes, colors, color corrections and pattern overlays. I could play around with all this for days wish i had more time. Double exposure is a fun and easy way to get astonishing effects i think for children its a great start to composition. I liked Ross Video about the cropping and framing and took his ideas to my cropping and framing to get something different. This Video was really inspiring. I tested in the second one double exposure with a shape that i created for the Illustrator Course.
