Surreal Collage For the surreal collage I used juxtaposition, distortion, and feathering. I used the blending tool to juxtapose the image and make Cassie’s legs into a tail and I used the distort and warp options to distort the fish.
Cameo Appearance in a Work of Art For my Cameo Appearance in a Work of Art I used the work of art by Georges Seurat. I used the filter tool to make it look like I belonged in the picture after using the quick select tools to select the part of my picture that I wanted to insert.
Cameo Appearance in Movie Scene For this project I inserted myself into a movie scene from the movie Karate Kid. I used many tools to make it look like I was part of the scene. I used the transform options to make the colors match more.
