For this one, we had two models which we drew separately (they were sitting back to back), and had to integrate into a single composition, put them in some situation together and paint with oils. And we had to fit their hands in. Which I think is why the hands and faces look too big for the bodies. In any case, I wanted to put them at the prom in the 60s, but the girl's hair just isn't right, and the guy's suit is dreadful. Kinda like the hands though.

This was my 6th attempt at doing a figure using acrylics which are super frustrating. They don't blend and they dry too quickly. Argh. But anyway, an excuse to stare at a photo of John Krasinski for a while. :o) The pants have problems though, my reference photo cut him off at the zipper, and I was hesitant to ask someone in class to be my pants model.
I picked up a book on Edward Gorey and was inspired to do something in his style. For the subject matter I chose the wood chipper scene from Fargo. I think it was appropriate. The paper photographed wonkily, and that's why the lettering is so terrible. Really.
For our Illustration History class, instead of a test, we had to do an illustration for our final project. We had to choose an illustrator we liked and I chose Skip Liepke. I tried, but didn't quite get it right, it needed to be a lot butterier and smudgier or something. Sigh.

Colour theory class is awesome with really fun projects - our latest one was to design a cd booklet for a song/band/style of music you like. Mine was 'The start of something' by Voxtrot. We were supposed to keep in mind the five senses and also include the golden triangle etc.
Concept: The hamsters are having a dance party, and the humans are working the fast food concession stands. Yeah - this makes no sense. :o)
