I created this piece as project for my digital image class at the MA program. I wanted to create an artistic meme that communicate my beliefs. I used the quote “make art not war” as the cornerstone of my design. Then I planned my graphic and animation, I used Photoshop CS3. The original gun was a realistic picture, which I cut, and adjusted its highlights and medium colors with the idea of create a piece of art from such a warlike object. I used the balance color tool to create each the palette and position them in a way that the end result came up as a whole art piece, so the viewer will see ART and not war. What do you think?
