Unit 5: Final Front Cover

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.29.19 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. Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.29.39I then used image> Auto colour to enhance some of the colours on the face as they looked somewhat dull compared to the original. Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.30.55 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.

I then added a black background and some white areas showed to get rid of these I used the paintbrush tool and selected the colour black and filled them in  Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.44.41

This is my image before I have fully finished using the paintbrush tool.

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.Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 11.15.59In 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.

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.
