for Illustration Friday.

I took a picture of myself in the bathroom mirror this morning. There are multiple mirror panels and a mirror behind all reflecting my face. I then did some compositing with it in photoshop, changing colors, adding effects, and adding extra images. I was trying to convey the angel and devil and multiple sides of ourselves. I am a Gemini, but I think we all have multiple selves including "angels and devils."Posted by Picasa

Thank you anonymous.

penelope, How do you define an illustration?

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I consider this piece to be an illustration or piece of art. It was done by digital compositing, like a college. It is not "straight photo." Mary :-)
