Bridget Jensen: Final Project

I created a series of photos that I took myself. I transformed them using the technique we learned in lessons 7 LowPoly Portrait. I think some of the photos might have worked better than others. I had a lot of fun with this however, I realized that it is much more time consuming then I had originally thought it would be. I took more time on the smaller details within the bear, fox and flower photos. I think that when I took more time to do more detailed areas it made the photo look better in the LowPoly transformation. By far the most difficult photo to transform was the fireweed photo. There was so much more detail that I wanted to show through the transformation that it took the longest. I am very happy with the finished product that came out of the fireweed photo. Overall I am happy with what I created and look forward to do more detailed photos in the future.

  1. This is a set of 5 digital pieces by Bridget Jensen. They are of low-poly photos of wilderness, including a bear, a fox, fireweed, a raspberry, and a river. The individual polygons tend to be smaller and more dense in areas of detail, such as the animal’s faces, and larger for low detail or background areas.

    As I look at the pieces, my eyes are immediately drawn to the high detail areas. It’s very clear what each of the subjects are in each picture (unless I was incorrect with my previous list, in which case I feel a bit silly). Most of the background areas have very large polygons, and since they mostly rest in your peripheral vision, you don’t lose anything from the whole piece. I believe that it this contrast in polygon size does a good job of directing your focus.

    I’m really intrigued at how well detail is preserved despite the decrease in detail from the original images. As I said before, the contrast between small and large polygons does well with the piece, but there are other decisions that compliment it well too. Points where many polygons meet looks like they were chosen very deliberately, and do very well to demonstrate value on different areas of the subject. I specifically like the center points chosen on the fireweed petals. They look to radiate outward, very pleasantly shading each one. The stems having much longer and narrower polygons was also very effective at keeping the silhouette of the flowers intact.

    I think this pieces were very effective, especially together as a set. I viewed them to top to bottom, and I realize now that if I didn’t have the first three images to establish that there was a wilderness theme, I may not have recognized the raspberry and river. Just like how the size of triangles gives context for detail, the first three pieces give context to the last two. Very well done, I am happy to see more of this style after that photoshop lesson.
