it was actually very simple. I opened the picture into photostudio 5.5 (it could actually be any program that lets you use layers) and created another blank layer on top of it. Then I used the eyedropper tool to pick up the colors, and then colored away. Then when I was done, since everything was in layers, i could delete the original picture and be left with the new rotoscoped picture.
So, it's 10 pm, The Kids Choice Awards are over, so what should I do? ROTOSCOPE!! I've never actually done this, or seen avatar, but hey, I'm open to trying new things. I'm not really sure what to call this, but I see kids in my school's graphic design class do this all the time, so why not? I kind of consider this a small victory, cause i never have the patience to do this kind of thing on the computer.
SO this is the original
and this is the rotoscope overlaying the original.
So after being inspired by many of the visual journals on here, I decided to make my own. And so far I have absolutely loved using it A lot of my ideas are influenced by others on here, so if you see an idea I used and want credit don't hesitate to ask for credit. So I stared with a mix of lined and computer paper and i sewed it all together using embroidery thread.
And here's a lovely shot of my algebra textbook actually being of some kind of use to me he he
I created the cover by using a top to a gift box and then I covered it with scrapbook paper. It didn't really fit, but i think the white on the edges is kinda nice. Then I posted envelopes in the front so i can have some kind of storage
and a (blurry) close up of the Eiffel Tower
And here are some examples of pages I've done
Here I write a word that kinda sums up the day and what I'm looking forward to (hehe it's not exactly finished)
I have A LOT of quotes in here, probably about 10-15 as of now.
this one was kind of inspired by the watercolor ones that have been popping around lately. Mostly inspired the back ground and the was the people look. I opted to make the people black though. Its done on paper with crayola paint and black marker.
