Thoughtful Portrait

For this project I pretty much knew immediately what to do. For a while I've wanted to do some painting-photography combination, so when the Thoughtful Portrait project was assigned, I knew I wanted to incorporate painting. While this picture doesn't really have to do with my photography concentration, it does have to do with my personal art concentration, dinosaurs! Last year I played around with the idea a lot of dinosaurs filling in human shoes, by painting portraits of them. I was inspired by photography to turn real portraits into dinosaurs, mixing medias. To complete this, I had my friend Cori stand in front of a backdrop and I took a picture of her. Then, I printed that image and painted on top of it, and scanned it to create this digital version!
