Youtube tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHAgz83nhQ8

Step 1.
Open a photo in Photo shop and create a new layer.


Step 2.
Using the brush tool, cover the hair in white. It doesn’t have to be covered perfectly because you can go over it at the end and get rid of the excess colour where it’s not meant to be.


Step 3.

Once all the hair is covered in white look on the layers page and click down on the selection where is says ‘normal’, then click ‘soft light’.


Step 4.
The hair should now be a lighter tone than it was originally. Now click on ‘Image’ then down to ‘Adjustments’ and finally over to ‘Hue/Saturation…’

Step 5.
When step 4 is completed, a box should come up, the first thing you need to do is make sure the ‘colorize’ box is ticked.


Step 6.
From here you can mess around with the Hue, Saturation and lightness till you come up with a colour that you’re happy with. When happy, simply click the ‘OK’ button and the changes will be applied to the picture.

Step 7.
To finish of, click on the ‘eraser tool’ and get rid of the excess colour around the hair and face




My Avatar
To personalize my avatar I created a tee-shirt with the band logo of “Breaking Benjamin” which is my favorite band. To do this I had to edit the logo image which I found on google. I used paint to cut and place it in the right spot to which I then uploaded it onto the wikispace as a texture and used that for my shirt texture. It took me a while to get the positioning right because I had to keep going back and editing the logo to get the correct size and placement.
I also added a texture or a cement but placed a blue colour over the top to create a texture like denim.
The look I was going for was one that I can relate to, just a simple jeans and t-shirt look.

You do this by clicking on ‘File’ then going down to ‘Upload’ and then moving over and clicking on ‘Image(free)... Ctrl-U’When your documents file opens find the image you want to use and click open and a box will pop up with the image. You can choose to rename the texture so that it is easier to find but that is optional. When you are happy with it then click ‘Upload free’ at the bottom of the box.

2. Once you have uploaded your texture you can incorporate it into your sculpture. To do this you need to click on ‘Build’ located on the little bar at the bottom of the screen. When the building box pops up make sure the editing option is set to ‘Texture’ on the little bar about one third of the way down the box. Next thing to do is click on your created shape so that it is highlighted. Click on the square that says ‘Texture’ under it and another box will pop up titled ‘Pick:Texture’. From here go into ‘My inventory’ then ‘Textures’ and click on your uploaded texture and click the ‘Select’ button at the bottom of the box.

Claymation Animation Analysis

youtube link to Claymation

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJeqmKWnW84&feature=related

This Claymation is an effective example of just simple Claymation which is created by basic shapes and movement of the plasticine. Although very plain it is tantalizing and makes you interested to keep watching as the way in which the plasticine will be moulded into next is unpredictable. The transition from photo to photo in this Claymation is pretty good, although you can pick up on a few flaws like colour change caused by light or a silhouette of a hand. When looking at the shapes of the actual plasticine though, the pictures seem to flow in a consistent movement which makes this an impressive and interesting animation. Sound in this animation comes in the form of the song, ‘What I’ve done’ by Linkin park. The song sets a beat for the Claymation to move to which its movements look like the plasticine is dancing. The music brings the Claymation together and keeps it flowing in a sense. When combining the lyrics and sound of the song with the unpredictable movements of the plasticine, the short film creates a sense of mystery. Space is utilised in this Claymation as the objects are constantly moving back and forth and from side to side. This space allows the Claymation to be viewed as a three dimensional art form rather than a two dimensional one. The space is restricted but it is enough to let the plasticine move around. Light isn’t a big part of the Claymation. Instead of creating light the person who made this just made the light aspect mutual, there is no artificial light or created light. Not using a light source can be good in this situation as it minimizes shadows. Although light could have been used to enhance the colours and make this Claymation more eye catching.
