I think I picked a horrible picture for this assignment and only realized maybe halfway through- between the tiny variations in the gravel/grass and the grain of the photo, it was very difficult retaining enough detail. My tablet also picked right now to go completely haywire and ignore all opacity settings, so that was fun too. Additional apologies if I completely missed the mark with what the assignment was supposed to end up being since I missed the in-class demo. :(
photoshop painting homework. I tried to use different brushes to make some noises and value corrected with some editing options. This is done by putting the original photo image on the side and copy the mood.
