Photoshop CC 2015, 26×26 inches (scalable vector mask)
The team that worked together on this project was (pictured, from left to right:) Arun Fernando, Yoko Mochizuki, and Zero Hutchinson.
The scene depicts a betrayal, perhaps a heartbreak, of the most devastating proportions. Someone has just decided to push their friend off of a very dangerous cliff for unknown reasons, as their other friend looks on in shock and horror. The composition of the image leads the viewer from the falling figure to the person pushing them, then to the shocked person, and then down to the rocky depths below. The piece uses strong leading lines to assure that the motion remains steady.
This was crafted in Photoshop using a vector mask to ensure total scalability and to prevent the loss of quality at all stages of the photo manipulation process. This way, the lines are as crisp as they can possibly be, and the image can be scaled up and down as much as needed for whatever print size or projector screen that might be used to show the silhouettes. The strong contrast is necessary for the piece to give it a sense of mystery and facelessness, as well as to stylize and simplify the characters so that they do not clash against the cliff face.
