80s Battle Angels?

Good evening everyone! Get ready for a weird visual assignment I completed today.

My task was to edit some weird eyes on people akin to anime characters or Alita: Battle Angel…Although I got a little crazy with the photo editor. Assignment link located HERE

I’m not very experienced with photo editing, so I wanted to try something silly before I jump in to creating art or something with little room for mistakes.

I decided to give some popular 80s movie characters a new bug-eyed look along with doing some interesting face twisting for your viewing pleasure.

Doc and Marty, but creepier

I went on to Pixlr to see what I could do to enlarge the eyes in the photo and there was luckily, an enlargement tool. Easy enough. However, things got funky with the Breakfast Club kids when I found twisty tools in the editor.

No wonder these students were outcasts at their school…

I made myself laugh this morning making these so I hope you guys smile too. It’s amazing what a little twisting can do to make someone unrecognizable and artificial. It’s like backwards airbrushing that celebrities do to their photos.

I didn’t think anything could ruin Patrick Swayze. I stand corrected.

For my take on Dirty Dancing here, I discovered the minimizing tool. By enlarging the eyes, making other features smaller became even better. Baby is one of my favorite movie characters because I’ve always thought she was adorable! Now look what I’ve done to her!

On a deeper level, even though I made silly pictures, it was interesting to look at the faces of such iconic characters and see what I could do to twist them up. Even just enlarging the eyes made such a difference in dismantling their perfect idealized movie appearance. If you are ever feeling down about how you look, try this out!
