Do You Recognize The Picture of This Shirt?

Do you recognize the picture of the shirt? Yes, that is the picture I used for the last work of my Let’s Do More challenge.

Why shirt? Clothes are symbols of our body and mind, and the whole form of the ego that wraps our essence of life or spirituality. The clothes are so attached that we can barely even feel that we are wearing them, so how can we look beyond duality if we cannot see or realize it?

That’s the main idea of the post Look Beyond Black & White. This post is intended to provide a re-example of how such works are done. Don’t forget, you can make the work in any way as long as the way you do can make an original image change and more than just “click the program feature button once” so it will not easily be identified as a result of a certain app or program, and also to better explain what is meant by the challenge as Kim has mentioned a little. Come on, once in a while, get rid of the affirmation “I can’t do it!”.

If we have never been looking for firewood, going out of the house to do that is Do More, then splitting wood for a fireplace if you have never done it is Do More too, and making wood chunk as a table is doing more in the next level. That is so on and on. Do something you haven’t done before, and increase something you’ve done. Try asking, what can I do with this picture, with this program? What else can we do to make a difference? More and more.

The following are the stages of making the work.

#1 The Original Picture; Black & White Shirt

From some photos of the shirt, I chose this one.

#3 Giving Effects of Painting and Color

In order to fit the ideas and effects that I want, I give a touch of color and painting to the image that was made in the previous stage.

#5 Add Text, Finishing, and Refinement.

I place text with fonts that match the fields that have been prepared and set them with different font colors, black and white. The black field has slightly been widened so that the position and font size are more proportional.

I made the connection on the gap between the arrangement of images by freehand, the extension of the white line of the shirt is added, the buttons on the shirt collar are made intact, all parts are examined and refined according to the main idea. Tadaaa...

By the way, don't forget to add "Let's Do More" to your post title to make it easier to find. Okay guys, have fun and Let's Do More!

#2 Doubling and Arranging

With PowerPoint, I made a stack of several rectangular fields as a black and white background for the arrangement of the shirt. I put the pictures of the shirt in a number of positions that matched the effect I was expecting.

The background will also be used as a template for the text to be placed. After the arrangement is complete, save as picture.

#4 Place A Ball in Figure

The ball is placed there as a symbol to get out of duality, see more multidimensional, and purple is the color of the crown chakra, a spiritual awareness. This is also to remove the impression of being flat and monotonous.
