Troll Samshine Series 1

I have been attempted to create a troll from my photoshoots. I was finally able to achieve that with my most recent photoshoot which you can read more about here, Faun Artwork Series.

In some troll lore the trolls have duplicates of their sensory organs. That means multiple eyes, ears, noses..etc.  I tried to recreate this by doing a siamese twins effect. Then I created multiple sets of eyes.

I had to make some edits to the siamese twin effect. You can see the progression of those edits below. I was really happy with the final results.

Then I played with the different filters in PicsArt.

Lastly I played with making graphs.

Etoile – Artwork Series 2

Before I went to the Silicon Valley Comic Con as Etoíle I did a dress rehearsal and photoshoot in my hallway. I really loved how everything turned out so I played with this college in PicsArt. This blog post is about my process and what I created.  The image below is the original shot, unedited.

If you want to read about my experience at the Silicon Valley Comic Con and how I made and prepared my Etoíle cosplay you can find it here.  The images below have been edited in PicsArt.

After I made some filter and color edits I decided to do some distortion.

I enjoy using the distorter editing option to change the features of my face. I was trying to create a wider nose and pull the eyes further apart. It looks creepy and more faun like. It reminds me of the faun in the Syfy channels tv show The Magicians.

I really like the purple/pink colors paired with the silver/golden colors. I love how the dots on my forehead created a pattern. The way the lines run down my chin gives a marionette doll. Over all this image was a success and it was fun to create.
