Shane_16-bit

In the beginning of the Digital Graphics course, to commence the course we first took a look at the early 8-bit and 16-bit graphic games. We looked at Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. Once we looked back at the early ‘bit’ graphic we then set out to create a self portrait of our self using either an eight colour pallet or a sixteen colour pallet. I chose to create a 16-bit self portrait. I took a photo of myself on the mac and put the image in photoshop, cropped the photo and then moved the image into a canvas 50×50 pixels. I then sized the image up and then took a 16 colour pallet from the image and the on different layers I applied the correct colour to make image a 16-bit self portrait.
