Here are some pictures I have made. I enjoy manipulating images. At first it was just to make cutouts from larger images, and of course to make thumbnail images for all the pictures on the site, but I have taken on some more interesting work as well. To make these images, I just used two features that came with my computer: Paint and Picture It. Once you figure out how to do it, it's just a matter of tedious work to get the final image!
Well first off, there is of course the Amazing Women banner you see above. Next is a series of variations I made on a photo I took of myself. All I did was alter the color pattern for each variation. The original photo is shown first.
Here are some Natalie Portman images that I worked on. The first one is a picture that I designed a mat for. Next is a cutout of Natalie's face from a large collage. First there is the section of the collage that has a picture of Natalie's face. Then is Natalie's face with the other portions of the collage removed. As you can see, the cutout lacks some sections! So I filled them in... rather, I completed the face. The result is not flawless, but at least it's better than the original.
Now we come to something a little bit more interesting. I thought it would be fun to have a picture of me with Natalie! Of course almost anyone could tell it's fake, but I am not trying to convince anyone it's real, so I didn't need to spend hours working on it. You get the idea, at least. Ironically, I have met Natalie, but she doesn't like people taking her picture... so I didn't!
Here is a series of photos from the Charlie's Angels movie that I put myself in. These involved lots of work, but it was fun. I had to find photos of my face that were compatible with the ones in the original pictures, and then I "grafted" my face onto the movie pictures.
Next I have myself as a character from the Star Wars galaxy, Aurra Sing. I did the makeup for real and took a photo, then integrated it with a picture of the character portrayed by a model. The real Aurra is on the left; I'm on the right.
Fun, eh? They should hire me at ILM! And finally, how silly is this? I have created a cartoon image of myself. Ever wonder what you would look like if you were made into a cartoon? It's kinda freaky! I can imagine myself as a cartoon now. It's fun. I also gave my cartoon the Warhol treatment and made a wallpaper-like collage of these cartoon images.
That's it for now!
