I used the pen tool to outline my selected tooth, then made a via copy of the image. I then warped the image, and proceeded to pull the image to the desire shape I wanted it to be.
2. Hair Tutorial
To change the hair to a differen color, I created a 2nd layer, setting the blending mode to Soft Light. I selected the brush tool, and went to my color palette and chose the color blue. My brush was set to hardness 0%, opacity 50%, and flow to 100%. After cleaning up with the erase tool, I went to hue/saturation to adjust the color to deepen the color.
3. Eyes Tutorial
To change the color from brown to blue, I used the pen tool to outline the inner eye, and used Feather Radius under 'make selection.' I then clicked on Hue/Saturation, adjusting them to create a blue color.
4. Skin Tutorial - "Crack & Peel Face Tenchnique"
I applied the texture image as a 2nd layer, and seleted 'multipy.' I used the Eraser Tool so the cracked image was able to fit the face. I then merged the two images, and selected Gaussian Blur to soften the texture, and Darken to deepen the color only slightly to my liking.
Art vs. Design
As a student who shares a deep passion for art, I’ve always thought of art as a gateway for expression, creation, and individuality. As John O’Nolan states, ‘Art is more personal, evoking strong actions in those who connect with the subject,’ and ‘The designers job isn’t to invent something new, but to communicate something that already exists, for a purpose.’
To be honest, both statements are hypocritical. I believe that both components derive and share the same guideline and rules, because in a ways, both Design and Art are consciously and unconsciously both the same in ways the eye can’t see. We only see them as different from the stereotypes of artists born with talent, and designers as hard workers.
