I chose to do pointillism for my final project because I felt that it went well the first time I tried and wanted to try again, only this time using Photoshop. This course has helped me learn more about Photoshop and how to use it so I wanted to use it for the final assignment.
I feel like it would’ve taken longer if I were to have done acrylic because of all the wait for each layer of paint to dry. Using Photoshop definitely felt like a faster process but there were a few difficulties. The hardest thing to do was drawing the flowers. At first it was hard to get them to look like flowers and not just a big glob. After I retraced a few steps I was able to get the look I wanted.
I decided to stick with my original drawing of cherry blossoms. It turned out similar but it also had some differences. I’m happy with the way the colors turned out and the overall outcome of the project. My favorite thing about this digital drawing is the way the background turned out, it really looks blurred, making the flowers seem closer and more focused.
