This week re-edited photo comes courtesy of Mojo Jones as Zombified Ariel from Disney Film, The Little Mermaid.
Ariel is a 16-year-old mermaid princess dissatisfied with underwater life in the kingdom of Atlantica. She is fascinated by the human world. With her best friend Flounder, Ariel collects human artifacts in her grotto.
Quickly looking between the two photos of the 2016 and 2020 Edit, there isn’t much to compare. But still made some minor changes. When I start a re-edit, I never refer to the original photo edited, so I am not influence on past actions.
I started with the basic changes I always do, by adjusting the exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, HSL, and etc.
The one element I wanted to rectify was the touch up the green paint on her body. When I took this photo, it was towards the end of the day and there was bound to wear and tear that the green paint would fade over the day. So, transfer the photo into Photoshop, got the paintbrush and taking different samples of her green paint and brush in over the skin which you can see her original skin colour.
The only other thing I did was change the aspect ratio to 16:9 to give it a wider and closer look of Mojo Jones.
The one thing I thought I didn’t do in the 2016 edit compared to 2020 edit, is that Mojo Jones is wearing a comic-con wrist band, which I removed in Photoshop. When I uploaded the photos onto this website, I was amazed I had already done it. Also amazed how similar the two photos do look.
