In this project we studied the artist Archimboldo whom was an Italian painter in the 16th century. He was best known for creating portraits made entirely of objects such as fruits and vegetables. While creating this project I used many tools such as lasso tool, the magnetic lasso tool, and the selection tools. The steps to create this project was first I had take a picture after that I downloaded fruit and began pasting them on top of my picture and covering the image entirely. The most challenging part of the project was the beginning and trying to find out what fruit to pick for different parts of the face. the most rewarding part of the project was the background. I liked how it came out in the end. What I would have done differently next time would be to organize my layers more carefully and earlier instead of waiting later when all the layers for different objects pile on top.
