Photo Manipulation: M

Copyright 2022

In the moment I erect deep thought
I lose the height of fantasy
And toy with the realm of illusion

In A Meditative Pose: Digital Manipulation Process from start to finish…

This is the gradual transformation of this piece of digital art

It started out as a digital photo of myself at lunch at my job.

I then brought that photo in my mirror lab app and came up with this design

I then brought this into my Snapseed app and played around with lighting and color settings turning it into this

Taking this back to the Mirror Lab App, tweaking and bringing it between both Apps as such

I then brought this into Snapseed and utilized the double exposure setting and combined this with a previous design to come up with this

Bringing it into the Mirror Lab one last time using the fractal/portal setting and finishing it off with text in Snapseed. I called the piece as such, because it looks like a heavy set person meditating.
