To get this picture I printed out the original image and used felt tips to cover Helena’s face in I then scanned this image in using the printer and opened it up onto photoshop. When I opened it I used the magic wand tool to get rid of the background. I then used image> Auto colour to enhance some of the colours on the face as they looked somewhat dull compared to the original. I then used Image> Auto contrast which gave me this screenshot. Once I was happy with the colouring I started to begin editing the image properly.
I opened up the filter gallery and used sketch> Water Paper this linked into the art movement fauvism as it was slightly blurry, I also did this because my magazine cover was going to be more of a modern design and this helped show how an image could have looked in present time for such things as equipment e.g. the quality the camera took the photo.
This is my image before I have fully finished using the paintbrush tool.
I then finished using the paint brush tool and decided to add text I added vogue in so each letter was placed blow another I then used the select tool to move the text around until I got to an area that I was happy with.
When I looked at the image I didn’t think the colour of the hair looked right I went onto Pinterest and found watercolour backgrounds I then added them into my image and placed them into the hair.In the end i found a pink watercolour background which I think contrasted well with the colours on the face. I then made sure there where no areas showing of the background which I didn’t want and got rid of them.
This is my image opened as a JPEG
Once I had saved I realised that I hadn’t added a price in I looked on Pinterest for prices and barcodes I didn’t see any barcodes on all of the front covers I looked at, also some didn’t include the price but if it was included it would be in a corner normally next to the font so I placed a price on my front cover next to my text rotated at the side. I then saved my image as a JPEG to be printed as my final front cover.
