Singing in the upside down rain – TDC 29

TDC29 - Singing in the upside down rain I’d never have thought to do one like this were it not for Roundhouseslap’s awesome Kiss of the Spiderman shot for today’s Daily Create. The task was to:

Make a photo of something upside down that is never seen that way.

In this case, I grabbed a picture of Gene Kelly from Singing in the Rain found via a Google Image search. I opened it up in Gimp, selected Gene’s face, made a layer mask with the inverted selection and dropped this silly shot of your’s truly that someone dug up on the internet for a ds106 assignment¬†one layer below the masked layer – and Bob’s your uncle: operation accomplished.

    Creative! The photoshop work looks pretty good! I though you had recreated the scene and then turned it upside down haha

      Thanks Paul. It was kind of a quick job in GIMP. Looking at it now I see three or four things I’d want spend more time on tweaking – namely the ears and the collar.

      I also wish I had Gene Kelly’s moves and umbrella.

    Lol cool picture, I like the idea of the rain falling upwards. Wish I had thought of something like that for mine.

    I just imagine rain filling up inside the umbrella.
