Final project: Model on the runway

“Slaving” is a very accurate word to describe what I put myself through to finish the final project for my graphic design class. I spent hours and hours and hours perfecting every little detail. It was painful for a week but seems to be worth it in the end. Here is the final product, 12×17, nicely printed & mounted on a foam core yesterday for only $10.50 (thanks to Printing Services, one of the more efficient offices on campus in my humble opinion).

What I did to get here:

– Build the catwalk & background walls.

– Take the main model and shave off her dress, reconstruct the lower right arm that was blocked.

– Smooth out her face and bring out her eyes (the original was lower in resolution)

– Draw the tights.

– Find the booties and carefully put them on her.

– Construct the dress out of newspaper print.

– Steal the background model from shutterstock, erase the watermark, and blur her.

– Take the audience from another runway photo, carve them out with a soft eraser & blur the edges.

– Put a lot of shading around the side areas.

– Put the necklace on the model.

– Construct the gloves out of black lace pattern.

A lot of time was wasted creating another pair of boots and unsuccessfully trying to give her a leather or fur jacket.
