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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 9.46.07 AM.png

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.58.50 AM.png

But I still wanted a hand holding a phone so I found an image of an alien hand holding a phone and used that.

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.58.58 AM.png

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.59.01 AM.png

Then I put lumpy space princess back onto the phone.

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.59.08 AM.png

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.08 AM.png

Then I decided to add the phone from before back in.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.23 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.26 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.34 AM.png

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.36 AM.png

Then for a more panicked effect I added smoke coming out of both sides of the UFO.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.39 AM.png

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.41 AM.png

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.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.46 AM.png

Then I added in a section of the image I used for the background in the little white rectangle.

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.51.48 AM.png

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.
