Part 1.

In this assignment you will assemble a fictional tool, machine, or robot using Adobe Photoshop. The parts of your robot will be the objects that you have brought to class.  Each robot must be a combination of at least two objects; your object plus any other brought by your classmates. In addition you can use anything else you can find/think of on the internet. The only restriction is that it must be of equal resolution (we are going to take high-resolution photos of your objects during class.)

Step 1. 

Photograph your object. We will do this together in class.

Step 2. 

In Photoshop isolate your object from it’s background.

Step 3. 

Go through the images of all the objects that were brought to class. Sketch out possible ideas for object combinations.

Step 4.

Create your robot in Photoshop, don’t worry about the final size of the document yet. Just work with the native size of the photos and make the canvas size larger as you go.
