For this assignment, I was instructed to take two actors and mash them together into one photo. Also, I had to make sure that they look like they belong in their setting and they look like they were actually together when the photo was taken. Below is my finished product and the steps I took to create it:
Alright so, by this point in the semester I’ve used Gimp so much that I’m now almost a pro. I remember when I first started using it, the application made me want to throw my computer at a wall. But anyways, I decided to go with Daryl from The Walking Dead and Tallahassee from Zombieland as my characters. I chose Daryl because The Walking Dead used to be one of my favorite TV shows and he was my favorite character. I chose Tallahassee because Zombieland is one of my favorite movies and I love Woody Harrelson. It was only logical that I put them in an apocalyptic setting! The step-by-step process for this creation is as follows:
- I googled images of Daryl, Tallahassee, and a zombie background. I then downloaded them all to my computer.
- I opened up the Daryl and Tallahassee files, separately, and used the lasso tool, added an alpha channel, and used the scissors tool to remove them from their backgrounds.
- Next, I opened up the apocalyptic setting in a new window, imported both of the images I had just finished editing of Daryl and Tallahassee and viola!
