Previous Entry Share Next Entry

The assignment: Make a postcard. Use an original background photograph, include elements where you change the size, orientation, colour, and levels. Include enhanced text. Use photo edges on one of the elements included in the photo:

My professor called it "creepy." I suppose some people find spiders creepy in any context, but i was going for "super cheesy." Ah well, maybe next time ;)

It's the "weave been" part that makes it super cheesy to me . I like it!

I'm not sure. Some sort of orb weaver that was living over the garden in _goodmanbrown_ and my apartment last summer.

I did call you-on Saturday and then on Sunday and left messages both times. Is your voicemail being screwy?

Evidently, it is. I don't regularly just dial up my voicemail to see if there's anything there, but my phone is *supposed* to tell me when i've got a message. I'll have to call into my voicemail and see if they're there. Maybe it's just that the phone is failing to notify me.

I dig it! The professor calling it creepy means they were probably expecting something with stuffed animals and bears or something along the lines of the cat hanging from the tree branch 'just hanging around' something like that... Something cutesy. Which is just barfy, actually.
I dig this, though. It's clever.

Pun-tacular!
Cheese factor 9, but it does actually work quite well in the sense of the incongruity of the serene sunlit scene, which I suspect is where the "creepy" comment came from...

Not too keen on the sky-blue patch around Charlotte-no-mates in the corner, but I guess that was just fulfilling that part of the assignment, and taken in itself it's fine.

For the sake of a fairly basic-level assignment, it's obvious though that you're enjoying it, and spinning your own creative mojo into it, which is no more than I expected - and augurs very well for when you acquaint yourself with some of the groovyness of Photoshop's more advanced features (filter-orgy and Kai Power Tools madness, here we come). ;P

AND...you haven't used a lens flare yet, so bonus points there... ;)

Yeah, the stupid thing with the sky blue bit around it was to do "photo edges" on an element that you drag into the darned thing. I was thinking of actually making up a "stamp" (since it's meant to be a postcard and all) but got lazy.

And you're *so* getting unnecessary lens flare in the next one ;P

Damn! I just wasted a perfectly good opportunity to use the phrase "sun-dappled"...curses!

On the other hand, you did use the phrase "augurs well." Points for that.
