This is a photo manipulation of Amiyah Scott, a famous trans actress who plays the role of Cotton on the show Star. When I first met her, I had no idea that she transitioned into a female. I didn’t even know she was a celebrity from a TV show, since I never keep up with shows or celebrities. I saw her instagram recently since the last time we met and came across one photo that inspired me to make an edit of her. Because her photo looks like she’s in a desert, I added sand effects. I also added electricity because of her eye color. I then added my usual “mascara” on her left eye, because it looks pretty cool, and because I wanted to give her a slightly Egyptian appearance. The colors in the original looked so well with her brown skin, and that alluring look she makes in the photo reminds me of mystical/mischievous beings such as Mystique from X-Men or Enchantress from the DC comics. I might take a step forward and take her hair, delete it’s background, and re position it on the rest of her head to make it look like it’s being whipped up by the energy she emanates. But for now I’m content with what I have now.
