Request: Create 2 images for the What Jane Saw website. 1) Take the green screen images of the staff who worked on What Jane Saw and place them inside the What Jane Saw Exhibit. Add some stylization to the image. Image to be featured in the New York Times.
2) Create a line up of all the What Jane Saw staff inside one of the museum rooms with ipads over their faces.
Professor: Janine Barchas
Project Manager & Art Director: Suloni Robertson
1) First was to retrieve the green screen images of the staff that were taken of them observing an imaginary object.
2) Next, was to key out the green screen and mask out their feet so I could place them into the exhibit.
3)Then I stylized it using a technique taught to me by Suloni. This stylization required giving the image a tint and adding noise., then adding a color and texture over the clothing to make it stand out. Next, adding small details to highlight features like the hair or clothes and then highlighting figures with a white stroke. Lastly, was to adjust the color of both the images of the staff and of the exhibit. I played with perspective and made the figures smaller or larger according to their location in the image. Adding shadows was the finishing touch so that the room looked to exist in a 3d space.
The final result
For the Second image, a similar process was done as far as retrieving the green screen image and cutting everyone out and placing them into a room. This image though didn’t require the stylization but rather lining up everyone who worked on the project together.
