Corinne Botz: Tiny bloodly doll woman.

During class last week we had the chance to go see a discussion led by artist Corinne Botz about her works and her newest book. While I'm not the photography type, I did find her work interesting, especially the series she had of tiny little blood stained crime scene dolls. There was something just so fascinating about the tiny things. The woman did have an annoyingly soft voice though, causing me to not pay attention to half of the things she was saying. She seemed to not really answer the questions presented to her, but rather mumble a vaguely related response.

The muffins were good, though.

What I Dream

From Homework

For this project, we needed to create a self portrait about who we are and where we are from, using the drawing tools in photoshop. I drew myself napping (Like I so often am), dreaming about general little doodles and my closest friends, whom I think of often now that I am at college. The background is an old map of Bensalem, PA, my hometown.

From Homework

Look at these photoshop skills. LOOK AT THEM.

Daaamn. Check out this super mega awesome hot girl who obviously has no bones!

What the hell sometimes, magazine people?

Personally, Faith Hill was sexy before you gave her the anatomy of Gumby. Photo manipulation on magazine covers is not always a bad thing. So what, JLo had a zit and they buffed it out. That's not the problem. the problem is giving women (and men) impossible bodies for the sake of making them look 'model-y'. Magazine dudes, models have bones too, alright? Alright.

It's rather ridiculous, what these people do. Look at Faith up there. They made her arm a toothpick, botoxed her face, gave her another arm, and curved her back. (Why would you want a more curved back? Mmm, them back humps be MIGHTY SEXY.) I understand smoothing out the skin, but when you edit everything else, it takes away the human element of the model, the beautiful element.

So magazine people.
Stop being stupid.

Scanner Face!

From Scanner Face

Ah, my scanner face. A fun project, but also a very annoying one. The face was the easy part. The hair was what wanted to be a total bitch. the colors are a bit wrong in the hair, only because there where way too many tiny little colors that, unless I wanted to sit and work on my hair for 12 hours, it wasn't gonna happen. Pretty simply process. outline with pen, fill, move over, repeat a bajillion times. Here is a WIP still I took:
