Paired with ZR1 Grunge Take 2
Digital art done from a photograph taken of a Hot Wheel’s 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
The photograph itself was an experiment. I wasn’t happy with the lighting. Since my makeshift studio is the office shared by my boyfriend and I, all I have at my disposal is my desk and various desk/floor lamps, overhead light and my creative flashlight duct-taped to another desk lamp. So, since I wasn’t getting what I wanted, I used a Kleenex and waved it in front of the camera while it was taking the picture (had it on timer on the tripod). It succeded in reducing the glare on the toy car while still providing the light needed to make out some details I was focusing on. But, my ultimate intention of doing this experiment was to play with the resulting photo in Photoshop anyway.
Here I applied various filters of my own design. Extracting the car, did some stuff to, created some grime and various effects.
Probably my most worked on image so far to be uploaded onto Redbubble. Would love to know everyone’s opinion. My boyfriend wasn’t a fan of the original photo but when I was done with it, he was in love with it. So, I would appreciate any comments.
