My finals can be viewed below.
2) This project came from my midterm. The most challenging part for me was trying to blend the pictures together and make them seamless. I had a difficult time using masks in this picture, I was still new to them and had to work hard to make my selections. For awhile I did not know that the selection was made first before you applied that mask, so once I figured that out I was a master a masks. I also grew fond of the artistic tools. It takes awhile to choose the right one that works with your picture, but once you find it, it makes a great improvement.
3) I'd like to compart my final projects compared to my midterms. In both sets, my big idea was emotion. For my midterm my theme was evolution of love, how love grows and changes over time. The pictures used came from the internet. I feel that I did get my meaning across and portrayed what I was trying to. My final project theme was relationships. For these, I used my own pictures. I think that this was the stronger of my two projects because it directly related to me.
