Before taking my picture, I had decided to experiment with different fonts on a background until I achieved my idea. I decided against the peeling brick wall as it was white and too symbolically happy for my topic. So I attempted the same thing with a gradient which just seemed a bit cheesy. So I went with a black background instead. Using the selection tool, I cut out my models and put them over this background, as well as put in the boy’s inner demon in the background. I made the font colour match the eyes of the demon.
For my second edit. I decided to go with my new concept which was to split the faces in half. I did this by taking two separate pictures in which the actor looks normal in one but more pale in the other. After taking the two images into photoshop I realised that the differences were not pronounced enough and so I used the burn tool to darken the area around his eye and reduced saturation to make him paler. Furthermore I used the liquify tool to emphasise a difference in his eyebrows, eyes and mouth on both halves, thus making him look like he has two different personalities.
To do list:
- Trim white off jaw to left.
- Try another font style
- Try another font colour
- Get badge off jumper
- Make colour difference less obvious
- Maybe crop closer to face
What went well?
- White on jawline has been removed
- Badge on jumper has been removed
- Billing block added to bottom of poster
- Font style is better
- Line separating face is less prominent
- Font colour is better
