Image Tracing


Contrasting Colour

Fluorescence Colour

Original Pictures

These three pictures were what I done in the Mark Making Project.


As an experiment, the first one that I tried is barely tracing the original image and copied it. Then, I reduced the transparency of the copied one and I thought that light green has a wonderful collaboration with pink.


For the second trial, I was trying to make the picture more 3D-like. Therefore, based on the first image, I added a flourescent green as the background to accentuate the contrast.


For the third picture, I did two backgrounds, pink and green, for emphasize the contrasting colour and mix with the pattern respectively. The reason why I used orange is developing a medium layer to separate the pattern (green) and background.


By the inspiration of pop-art style, I applied two strongly contrasting colour for highlight the texture within the picture and then I switched the colours to see the different effect.


I think the functions of AI are obviously abundant, so that I need more time for learning them. Generally, I am happy on what I made out because the contrasting colour amused me a lot. However, how to crop the canvas and use the layers are the questions that I still have to find out.
