Once again, I chose to use a famous scene from Lion King as the background for this assignment. The crab definitely sticks out in the environment making it almost funny to be with this already odd bunch.
I used the same scene for a different assignment where we had to use a wet paint brush. I enjoyed doing this scene for this assignment because of the colors contrasting one another, and the scenery seemed to fit perfectly.
This assignment I found to be one of the most difficult and time consuming, the amount of shading that was necessary was almost overwhelming. In addition, the need for filters and details added to the stress. In the end, I liked seeing it done - it is one of the most colorful tasks which appeals to the eye.
For this project, we were assigned to create a surrealism piece. I chose to represent society's current obsession with food and money - which has destroyed our land. With everything going on at such a fast paced, the United States has lost its appreciation for mother nature which is why I incorporated the fish, beach, and roses. The fact the dark sky is on top demonstrates our priorities.
As a dog lover, I enjoyed using this adorable model so much! I did not want to distort the face too much since I really enjoyed the dog but it was also kind of cool to see the results of using different paintbrushes.
Above are some pieces I chose to do in extra time, Julia gave me the idea of using Olympic divers' faces to place on weird objects. I also took advantage of it to appreciate some cute dogs that I found.
I did this project slightly different from how we were supposed to, but I found it rather easy to do with the pen tool. In addition, I began learning the value of anchor points and handles while doing some of the letters.
