For this photo manipulation I used Adobe Photoshop & The Wacom Cintaq drawing tablet. For this piece I wanted to just pay around with shapes. I created multiple facial shapes. So I used my own custom organic style to the create patterns on her face and added a drop shadow underneath each pattern. This was to make the shape’s pop more for the viewer. Also, notice I made each shape it’s own individual color. That help create contrast.
I used the pen tool to create each shape, and then I pieced the shapes together to create the full face. I added the teeth last. As far as the background go, I didn’t do nothing special. I used all brushes, no textures.
