To begin with I did the final details off my Karl Lagerfeld drawing in Adobe Photoshop I added the filter ‘Diffuse Glow’ I then began to change Hue/Saturation just as an experiment to see if the colours I had chosen I definitely wanted, From this I got three outcomes which I particularly liked I saved them as JPEGS and opened them up from the last screenshot this made me decide what to use in my book.

I then took my flower experiment and began to re-create the image on Adobe Photoshop. To start off I took an image of a model from Pinterest as my drawing was a sketch and only really focused on the dress, Once I made an outline I created a new layer and filled the shoes skin and top half of the body in, However created a new layer for the face so if any mistakes where made i could delete them layer for layer. I then got up to changing the dress using free transform I increased the dress size but this looked too traditional I changed the hue saturation slightly and put the contrast up I used the magic wand tool to select the bottom half of the dress I then copied it into a new layer and duplicated it a couple of times i selected free transform and in each layer moved, made smaller or rotated the dress so it didn’t look although it had been repeated. Once I was happy I added a white background and saved this to add into Adobe InDesign.

This was then my page for Christian Dior completed
