|The Making of My Artifact for CSE 455 Project 1|
|The Artifact||The Background|
|This is the final piece. In addition to the layers and masks shown below, I added some shadowing and added the light boxes around the fish. Iím not sure I like the boxes now, but I wanted to give the impression of an invisible canvas. Things didnít turn out quite how I envisioned them but I was really limited by my lack of experience with Photoshop.||I used this simple, royalty-free clip art image of clouds as my starting point.|
|The first element is a picture of me.||This is the mask that selects just me.|
I realized that I wanted my arm in the final image so I took a separate picture of it.
This is the mask I applied to isolate my arm.
|The final image a used was this tropical fish.||This mask isolated just the center fish.|
