User testing - proved useful to me as it allowed me to put my work into context which then led to peers to use my product to its full potential so that I could get a general perspective on how it would be used within that particular environment.

Basic editing of my end 1:1 product within it's context, but have made subtle changes to the overall smoothness of its structure, removed the majority of the winkles within the fabric and other small minor things such as dirt on the carpet and the pole.

Another photoshopped image to see whether I could successfully remove parts of the photo without ruining my sculpture using the Patch and content aware move tool.

Practicing my skills that I learnt from the photoshop sessions with nick in order to remove my hands from photo's we took in the photography studio which you can see the original photo on the left compared on the photoshopped photo to the right of it and with additional lighting changes and crease removal

Upholstering appeared to be a much harder process than I imagined as I came along many problems and issues on the way which I managed to over come.
-Due to large scale of my product and the curvature, this required a template which had to be followed and calculated out in order for my product to fit together down a smooth gradient in terms of size/diameter.
-Due to the vast materials I chose, that were soft and stretchy material my fabric wasn't appropriate too be used on the sewing machine as the needle wasn't fit for those surfaces so some research was done and realised I required either a ball point or a Jersey needle.

The basic process of figuring out how to upholster my product which consists of accuracy in terms of templates, measuring each section, pinning these neatly together in order to have the best outcome on the sewing machine

The start of my learning process of upholstery, starting out with learning the basics of the how materials work and the types of stitches of my 1:1 product and this was the final outcome of using a straight stitch on a sewing machine

Expanding my work amongst various social media - my design instagram account, I think its important to use different social accounts because each type of social media has a different audience to reach to and its ideal to know what type of photos would be suitable to post to suit the viewers, which then allows you to have more engagement.
