One of my classes this quarter is a digital manipulation course. When I registered for the class I thought it would just be a course on how to use Photoshop or other digital tools, but it turns out it is a lot more than that. While I am learning all of the Photoshop skills, it is also about creating digital art.
Now, let me start by saying I love art. I really enjoy going to museums or just being creative and artistic in general. So the class combines the two, it should be great right? Well.. turns out it is a lot harder than I expected. My professor has such high expectations, she practically thinks we should be professional artists. Not to mention I don't think she was impressed when I told her I was a Communication major.
Our first project that we have been working on is a digital self portrait, but not of ourselves, of objects. It has been taking me forever and I still don't like it. On the bright side my Photoshop skills are getting immensely better and I have been learning a lot!
Hopefully the class gets easier and my project comes together!
Here is what I have so far:
If I like it enough, I will post the final product when it's finished!
