For this task, we just had to mess around with an image, adjusting a variety of settings so that the appearance was altered. The only time i added to the image was at the very first stage when i had to add colour so that they could be altered.
We begun by using a black pencil tool to draw the outline of the shape and add some shading.
We got a new layer and hid the previous so that you weren’t being guided by the previous layer. We added colour and the more contrast, the better.
For this layer, we did the same again by hiding the previous layers, except this time, we filled this layer with a bright colour of our choice and used the rubber tool to remove the negative space (the background).
We, once again, hid the previous layers and filled this layer in another bright colour. Only this time we left it plain and removed nothing.
Finally, we made all of our layers visible except that some were covering others. Therefore, we had to play around with the layers, making the final combination which allowed all of the layers to be shown. I really liked this because the image shifts a little each time meaning that the final design looks much more abstract because it isn’t perfect.
