For my Computer Graphics class we had to create a character and then use photoshop to depict a scene from this characters life. I’ve been working on this assignment pretty much all week and decided to share it. First I’ll tell you a little bit about my character so you can have a better understanding of the project. My character’s name is Shelby he’s a turtle figurine from an Island souvenir shop. He, along with all the other intimate objects are able to come alive when the humans aren’t watching. One day Shelby along with five other turtles were bought by a tourist and packed away in a suitcase for days before finally arriving in New York. Shelby loves it in the city but can’t help feeling homesick sometimes. My scene depicts a memory of Shelby’s of when he was back home on the island. I blurred various aspects of the photo to give it a more hazy, dream like effect since it was intended to be a memory.
I chose to depict the scene from my characters point of view, so that we see the image through his glasses as if we were him. When i initially started this project I thought that it was going to be easy but it wasn’t. I knew what I wanted to do with the images, but the tough part was figuring out how to do those things in photoshop. It took me a while but I am pretty happy with the outcome.
