Deer Woman Photoshop II midterm

My assignment was to create a mythical creature using a minimum of five pictures. We were given a huge list of creatures to pick from. I think picking a creature was the hardest part of this assignment as there were sooooooo many to neat ones to choose from.  It was serendipitous when my deer woman evolved, into a pregnant deer woman, as I searched for the photos for her. I later learned that in one of her back stories she does represent fertility.

Below, are some of my inspiration photos. When I found the photo below, on the left, I decided to make her pregnant. Then I started searching for pictures of pregnant woman and found this VERY COOL one in the middle. It even had my Photoshop teacher Alison questioning, for about half a second, if it was real…”is it…do you…oh surely it is photoshopped”. She had me laughing.

Below are the photos I used to create my Deer Woman.

When I was done creating her I had a blast with Photoshop’s filter gallery and applied the different effects to create these.


Web II Tess Eggs

For my Web II midterm I decided to create the web pages I designed last fall as my final project for my SFCC Design in the Real World class. Below I used the skills I learned in my Photoshop class to create these web page mock ups. This  .GIF file shows my final web page designs and my final business card designs for Tess Eggs. Which contains a few versions of the home page to capture it rolling announcement bar and background image.MargeryAlbillarTessEggs

HomeHere, are the screen shots of my competed web pages. I came pretty close to my proposed design. What I was unable to capture in my screen shot is that I applied some CSS tricks to the hover state of my links and the white box background rotates horizontally and changes to the olive color.
