Melitza, 7th Grade, RYSS [Digital Art]


Digital art by Melitza at Raul Yzaguirre School For Success. The original photo by Matt at Eisenhower Middle School was manipulated in GIMP 2 photo software.

Go to: Fish Going Crazy to see the original photo.

This photo looked like a very dazzling and bright design. It looked like the 3 separate shapes were being spotlighted from the beam coming from the top right corner. I never knew that it was a picture that was originally a picture of fish! It’s amazing how it was manipulated. This picture stood out to me because of the flashy colors and the 3-D effect. It is very interesting!
