I figured it would help to understand how I got to my designs if I uploaded the templates I had used to make my silhouetted designs. They originated as follows:
- 1: An orchid flower
- 2 and 6: A lotus flower
- 3, 4, 5, 14 and 15: Hats designed by Philip Treacy
- 7 and 8: Pheasant feathers
- 9 to 12: Abstract structure ideas I had come up with earlier in the project.
- 13: The tower idea.
Once I stamped them down I used the brush, transform (roatate, scale,warp and prespective) and eraser tools to tweak them to fit the situation, the shapes were further modified and cleaned up in my master image considerations to more fit the situations I would place them in.
