My Magazine Cover

This is my final design of my magazine, iv'e tried to make it eye catchy by adding extra colours on each side and to make the magazine look even better i made the title both colours to give it that better look instead of it being doll.The colours purple and orange have been used because if you look at the colour wheel in my previous blog it shows that these two colours are probably the best to use. Ive added a barcode, price and date to make it look that much more real. The model is a actor/singer/model called Ariana Grande and it took a bit of work to photoshop her and make it look normal gain without the background. I've used multiple fonts to make it more interesting and not to make it plan, with out noticing you would think that the same font is boring.I tried changing the layout of the writing to the words hovering hip length to make it look better and added a different font to add more than just two colours. Over all i am very happy with how my magazine has come out.

Magazine Colour Detailed

This magazine uses the color pink for the background which sets a really calm environment when reading the magazine. The cover lines are black which really stands out against the pink because pink is a lighter color where black is a darker color making it stand out more. By having the words SEX LIFE written in bright pink makes you want to look at that first because it the only color on its own on the front cover. The white cover lines don't stand out to much because the pink is near the same sort of shade of lightness so maybe the editor didn't want these topics to stand out over all the other cover lines on the front cover. On the front cover the title and words written miss JORGIE PORTER are shiny silver which could of had that style of color/text because the editor wanted the magazine to catch peoples eyes( quite literally) by having the sun reflect of from a window maybe and shine in there eyes making them maybe want to see what it is. 
GQ has only three colors for there magazine luminous pink, white and black. The white has been used for big titles and the main cover lines. the black has been used for subheadings and for the date and price where its a white background to keep it standing out since there both opposite colors. The white has been used for ares that have black around for the same use of having the black (to stand out against opposite colors in stead of having a white background and a white font because then your not going to see anything).
The colors yellow and white really do make this magazine look a bit more like interesting because yellow is a unusual color to use while typing and the white just fits in with it, maybe because their both light shades. The black looks like the least important part of the magazine, no because theirs a few cover lines that are black but because if you read them you can tell that its not news its just little pieces of fashion. The white font  to me looks as if its the most important because theirs KATE'S SECRET STYLIST REVELED written in bold and seems like big news for everyone, theirs also a look at Kate Moss's party that's meant to be wild and talk of fashion near the top right. The yellow looks like its been used for just big titles and prices.

Photoshop Work 2 (Blur Tool)

The blur tool is a very useful tool for making images look realistic again after having them cropped really badly using magic wand or the magnetic tool. I have used the blur tool for my magazine cover where my models legs were really badly damaged after using the magnetic line but i covered it up using the blur tool by swiping across the leg to the part where there is no leg and repeat after a while and your leg will look normal. You can also un-sharpen the sides of the model after cropping by swiping the blur tool around him/her to make it look a little bit more realistic, and not make it stand out to a bad form.

(I would use an example but i have already fixed the legs and do not have a problem with my model).

Colour Conotations

Different colours can convey different meanings or connotations to the viewer.

Sports: For a sports i would use a red because the explication for the colour red seems like it would suit this type of section. The parts in the colour red such as physical, energy and stamina are all used in sports and thats why i would use red for sports because it would suit the magazine the most and its readers.

Gaming: The colour yellow stimulates humor, fun and creativity. I agree with this being the colour for yellow because all of these can be created  while gaming. Minecraft would be an example of creativity because in this game you create what you want with your imagination.

Ponies: The colour green would be best for ponies because ponies  are nature, love and harmony. When a girl\women thinks of ponies they would most likely think of a pony on its own that's riding in a green field and bright sun.

Bakery: The colour for bakery is defiantly violet because its creates imagination and artistic ideas. Will baking ideas can flow for what you want your food to look like. It has artistic views because you decide what you want it to be like.
