For my major photoshop piece I decided to go for a space theme. I started off with a plain galaxy background.
I then decided to add an image of earth with a magnifying glass.
At first I was going to add this image into the magnifying glass.
But I ended up using this image instead.
After that I added a hand holding a phone into the magnifying glass.
At first I was going to use this image on the phone screen.
But instead I chose the same image as I did for the background.
I wanted to add something else onto the screen of the phone so I chose the silhouette of a unicorn. ( It’s a little hard to see in this image, but it’s easier to see in the actual image)
After that I thought if I have earth than I should have a moon too.
But I didn’t want to make this any ordinary moon. So I decided to make it a cheshire cat moon. I added a face..
…a pair of ears…
…and a tail.
I wanted to add a black hole. So I did. Then I blended the edge of the image in with the background by putting black around the edge with the paint brush tool.
I then decided to add a dragon coming out of the blackhole. Did the same thing I did with the blackhole image to blend the edges in.
I decided to change the unicorn to Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure time because I though she fitted the theme better.
I decided to change the phone in the magnifying glass to another mini photoshop I had done previously.
But I still wanted a hand holding a phone so I found an image of an alien hand holding a phone and used that.
I decided to use a different background for the phone this time. Since I had lumpy space princess on the phone I got an image of lumpy space for the background on the phone.
Then I put lumpy space princess back onto the phone.
I decided that I to change the image in the magnifying glass. First I got rid of the heart and played around with the Hue/Saturation.
Then I decided to add the phone from before back in.
Then I wanted something in the screen of the phone that matched the screen, so I put an image from E.T into the phone.
Then I wanted a UFO about to crash into earth so I added one. Fo the UFO I also used the motion blur tool to make it look like it was moving fast and about to crash. I also used the fresco filter from the filter gallery.
Then I realised that if they were about to crash they wouldn’t just be sitting there relaxing. They would be freaking out. So I added a speech bubble with the word help in it.
Then for a more panicked effect I added smoke coming out of both sides of the UFO.
I then decided to make it look like the alien holding the phone was Facetiming LSP (Lumpy Space Princess) so I put in an image of the buttons on Facetime.
Then I added in a section of the image I used for the background in the little white rectangle.
It took for ever to find an alien face that I was happy with, but I finally found one. Then I put the image of the alien head into the rectangle on top of the galaxy section I had put in just before.
This is my Major Photoshop Piece completed. During the process of making this photoshop I have used the Hue/Saturation tool, the filter gallery tool, the motion blur tool, the clone stamp tool, the lasso tool, the quick selection tool, the crop tool, the brush tool and the move tool.
