61  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: just started with digital photography on: February 29, 2008 08:33:21 PM
I think the original photo is so interesting on its own that you shouldn't use the spot color effect.  You could up the contrast, or make the entire photo black and white if you don't think the original is bright enough.  When you do really obvious Photoshopping, people might assume that you also photoshopped the zebra into the picture in the first place, and you'll lose the whole impact of the shot. 

On a more personal note, making part of the picture B&W reminds me of those cheesy cards with the little kids kissing, its a fun thing to do with photo editing, but it looks amateur.  I think the key with starting out in a photo-editing program is to be as subtle as you can, because its really easy to go overboard.  IMO, the original print is much more sophisticated and artistic than the altered one!

I love how this is so subtle, but you can completely understand the inspiration.  And the construction looks great too. 

Where do you go to school?  (Is that a creepy question?? It just sounds like an interesting assignment)

I covet this.

I'm thinking plain fitted tee shirt.  Maybe white, grey, navy...

Grey things are the best with bright colors, aren't they?

That fabric is great!

Is this pattern from the BbW book?  I've been looking for something similar...

ETA:  MyDestny, are you going by your RTW size?  I'm a 0-2 in stores but 8 in pattern sizes.  Unless the Built by Wendy sizes are different from the regular Simplicity.

 I like the fact that you have dreads keeps the herringbone/ribbon combo from looking prissy.  Very cool.

do you ever get tired of making awesome dresses?

I like this a lot.

on a non-fit related note:  I can't stand when something has, say, a ribbon around the waist, or lace on the bottom, but ONLY on the front half.  How cheaply made is that? 

Or even worse, places with above-average prices that are obviously made in sweatshops.  If you're paying $5 for a shirt, of course it's going to be crap.  But some places (Abercrombie&Fitch comes to mind...or most 'designer' jeans) charge much more for equally terrible quality.  Why?
