About the Poster/Reflection:
People- All of the people taken off of flickr.com had their legs cut off at around the knees. I used the paint tool to make the shape and then used the stamp tool to create the proper texture to add on the legs. I used this technique mainly for people with pants but also for one of the bare legged girls. For most of the bare legged girls however I took legs from another picture (titled “legs” in my folder) and pasted the legs on making the necessary colour changes and adjustments. To cut the people out of the picture I used both magnetic lasso and magic wand depending on the background. I also copied shoes onto most of the people as they did not have legs and therefore did not have shoes.
ATHLETES UNDER PRESSURE is a topic that is closely connected to me. I am a competitive gymnast myself and I know what it feels like to have pressure put on me. That's why I chose this topic. I placed the elements of the poster in dynamic thirds because I thought it would emphasize 'the pressure weighing down' most effectively. A great source of pressure for all teenagers comes from their parents, so I thought this poster could bring awareness of that as well. The main figure of the poster is a gymnast, but she is 'broken' because she can't handle the pressure. She is surrounded by darkness to, again, show that she has a lot of pressure on her. The parent and the coach are the sources of pressure for the athlete. The red lines on them actually say 'pressure' to recognize the fact that they are the pressure. They are standing on the text because it really emphasizes 'pressure weighing down'. The quote, "Win or else I'll withhold love and approval" is meant to said by a parent and mean words of pressure to the athlete. The message of the poster is that even though others can put pressure on you, its up to you whether you use it in a constructive manner or not.
