Officially the penultimate project
Step 1: Choose a tutorial --
One Point Exterior Perspective
1 Point Perspective Interior,
Step 2: Add details from images you find online to create your composite image.
What is a composite image? A composite Image is a picture that is made from the combination of multiple images merged into a single surface. Example: Create a Fantasy City Using Architectural Photographs
What do I do if the perspectives of my source images do not match the perspective of my final image?
1) Correct for lens distortion
Photoshop Help: Use the Adaptive Wide Angle filter
Video: Adaptive Wide Angle
2) Match the perspective
Photoshop Help: Transform objects
Video: Fit Objects Into Perspective
Step 3 will involve correcting for tone, adding shadows, and atmospheric perspective. We will discuss Step 3 next Wednesday :)
Step 3: Make it all look as if it belongs together.
• Match the tone (color) throughout the image
Photoshop Help: Match, replace, and mix colors
Video: Photoshop Color Matching: The Fastest Method
• Add shadows wherever necessary
Photoshop Help: Layer effects and styles

The Final Project
Due for critiquing on Friday, June 3rd, 2016
Create BOTH (one of each):
You can use whatever program you are comfortable using; Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, or Whatever (if you want, you can draw or paint your design).
Both designs must have a thee-hundred dots per inch (300 Pixels/Inch) resolution.
Both designs must be in CMYK color mode.
A Spirit Day T-shirt design for next year.
The design should be roughly ten inches wide by twelve inches high (10" X 12").
The design should use between two and four colors; with no gradients, color blends, feathering, drop shadows, inner glows, et cetera.
The design should include some variation of the text "EWMS," "Seahawks," and "2016 - 2017."
Keep in mind that the design will be printed on both blue and grey t-shirts, and should look aesthetically pleasing against those colors (perhaps you can, somehow, use those background colors to enhance your design).
An Agenda Cover design for next year.
The planner is seven inches wide by nine inches high (7" X 9"), but the important elements (safe zone) of the design should fit in an area that is five and three-fifths of an inch wide by eight and one quarter of an inch high (5.6" X 8.25"). There should be a three-eighths inch margin between the edge of the planner and the safe zone on the top, bottom, and right side of your design; and a one and two-fifths inch margin on the left side.
The design should use between two colors; with no gradients, color blends, feathering, drop shadows, inner glows, et cetera.
The design should include some variation of the text "EWMS," and "2016 - 2017."
Keep in mind that the design will be printed on a white background, and should look aesthetically pleasing against a white background (perhaps you can, somehow, use that background color to enhance your design).
Here is a template, if you need one :)
The Illusion of Depth: Linear Perspective
Linear perspective: A technique of creating the illusion of depth on a flat surface. All parallel lines receding into the distance are drawn to converge at one or more vanishing points on the eye-level line.
Vanishing point: A point on the eye-level line, toward which parallel lines are made to recede and meet in perspective drawing.
Eye level: A horizontally drawn line that is even with the viewer’s eye. In landscape scenes it can be the actual horizon line, but it can also be drawn in still life.
Convergence: In linear perspective, lines that represent parallel edges of an object; these may be drawn to converge to a single vanishing point.
Foreshortening: A method of applying perspective to an object or figure so that it seems to recede in space by shortening the depth dimension, making the object or figure appear three-dimensional.
