I used this design as a source of hope. A lot of times people tend to rely on faith after the miracles happen. when in all reality faith is imposed as part of the miracle. it’s a guiding step, trusting to what we can’t see.
PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)
I had an idea of the montage I wanted to create from a painting of my brother. He had the pupil of the eye as a fish bowl with a goldfish in it and I knew the quote I wanted to use. originally, I had a quote from Jim Carrey, “Our eyes are not only viewers, but also projectors that are running a second story over the picture we see in front of us all the time” but it was kind of lengthy.
1. In Photoshop I started out with the eye and masking in the sun. the first sun i had was way too small. I had to change it out for a deeper yellow sunset in africa.
2. I wanted to keep the veins of the eyes. as a brushed them into the sides of the sunset it didn’t look good at all. I found some trees on google and added a filter on them to get a reddish hint on it. I wanted to create the blending effect of when you’re looking at the sun the tree’s become faded as they get closer to the sun.
3. I had the idea of having my quote go with the curvature of the eye but the more I looked at it, it didn’t fit right. I found a different quote that I really liked and it was much shorter. I wanted to keep with the safari theme and have a Jurassic Park typeface. after some critiquing, I changed it to something that was more geared towards the word “faith”.
3. I kept the text aligned with the photo instead of curving it around the eye. overall, I made sure things kept aligned and spaced out enough.
I had had a good laugh when my Professor critique mine. She paused for a good long second and then said, “this is… creative”. but she agreed with, Kylee Egbert, Parker Kane and Jeff Marshall who all thought it was creative but weren’t really too fond of the original writing; neither was I though. Amy bluder also pointed out the color of the eye wasn’t masked on fully. there was a spot right down near the tear duct that wasn’t masked.

One-on-One Critique: Amy Bluder
Instructor Critique: My instructor asked me to change to lighten of the typography. I changed the whole thing even adding a yellow from the sun.
A message of faith that comes from within.
Those needing a bit of faith.
