This project was to create an album cover by photographing our subject and then doing some sort of artwork on top of it. The artist I based my image on is Serena Ryder, specifically her album "Utopia". For this image, I photographed my model in the studio. For the oil painting feel, I used the mixed brush tool in photoshop and smudged all of the colours together, and created a brush-like texture.
This is the original photo I used for the project.
This is how I in-visioned the text going on the design. Very minimalistic, but still playing with the shadows of the image.
