My name is Hager Neeb. I love digital arts, music, film, and video games. I've been to many different countries and cultures which shaped me as a person. I'm very passionate towards different art mediums and how they can convey messages to an audience. Creativity can be the raw emotions of an artist translated into a physical piece and I love interpreting different results. I went into this class hoping to explore the ways we can express creativity and how I can use these methods in my own projects. Inspiration can be hard to come by so this class should open up some possibilities!
I was exited for this first project because I could show a little peek of what I'm interested in. I decided to include multiple logos of websites and companies I like in particular and highlighted their colors with a darker background. The reflective streaks were used to guide the viewers eyes to the middle where my name and schedule is found.
I liked the process of making this piece because I used what I learned in class. Choosing different light and dark patterns was fun and the result was better than anticipated. I particularly like the pattern on the horn making an almost 3D design. This helped me consider light values in my future art experiences.
While I'm personally not to fond of the final product, I enjoyed the process of learning how to use watercolors. We used a light source to cast a shadow and trace multiple shapes. We then used many different techniques to paint and color the piece. I aimed to use different colors to destinguish each character and their personality. I did a good job using the techniques but didn't get the detail I was expecting for the characters. Despite my opinion, I learned a lot from this piece and would do it again.
