Project Description

Turn your loved one into a superhero.

Today's assignment is to take a photo of someone you know – could be a friend, family member, coworker or pet – and embellish their characteristics into a fantastical figure.

Use my 4 principles of compositing:

  • Lighting
  • Elevation
  • Noise
  • Sharpness

 

DELIVERABLE 

Share your composited image in the Project Gallery, along with a "before" photo of what the person looked like pre-Photoshop.

Can't wait to see what you create!
