Fine art refined art

Fine art (refined art)

  • You will be adding yourself to a piece of fine art – a work created by a “master”.

  • You will need to find a copy of the artwork you want and scan a high resolution image (300 dpi minimum).

  • You will need to add yourself to the artwork so that it appears you have always been there (avoid the “cut and paste” look).

    • No replacing the characters head with yours – to easy!

  • Pose, lighting and costume are very important in fitting you into the artwork.

    • Remember the factors involved in making a photo easy to cut.

  • Sketches (5 minimum) in your sketchbook. You may use tracing paper and work over a printed copy of the original (tape these into your sketchbook), or work on zerox copies of the original art.

Things to consider

Things to consider…

  • Cutting the figure…

    • To create a smoother edge with less of a “cut out” appearance, remember to feather the edge of your selection slightly.

    • Remember your different selection options.

    • Shadows! If you are really there, you will cast a shadow and have shadows cast on you.

  • Edge treatment…

    • You may need to go back and blur or smear the edge to insure a smoother fit. Keep an eye on the “white edge” that may appear around selection.

  • Color adjustment tools…

    • Insure that the overall color of your pasted item match the colors of your artwork – this is critical to creating a good fit.

  • Filter applications…

    • Experiment with your filters (or combinations of filters) to create a surface texture on your figure that matches that of the painting or artwork you are pasted into.
