Today I’ve assembled a little more, created new characters, tweaked old scenes.
I gave many of the characters a wider variety of complexions.
Scene 7: I darkened the complexion of the characters and added a soft pink glow to the scene to add to the soft glow/love look
Scene 4: I darkened the skin of the children and mother, created a young child for the lap of the mother removed the locks from the boys, and added a more rustic table. Not sure what to put in the background. Will add more food later.
Scene 5: I darkened the complexion of the girl on Skype and added a Skype logo
Scene 8: I added a mixing bowl to the grandmother’s hands, a wallpaper, some cookies, and a more rustic stove.
Scene 6: I adjusted the lighting so the time of day looked more accurate.
Scene 11: I changed the background entirely and did a lot of tweaking and clone stamping to remove any hints of the anthropology classroom. This photo was easier to work with. I also created two Ethiopian student characters for this scene in the style of the other characters. I need to create perhaps a female 3/4 view character to go in other desks.
Scene 12: I clone stamped out any English on the blackboard and will put Hebrew up there. I also added the Aunt character.
