This was multiple experiments with different objects and how they react to the character.
Assignment: Create depth by using examples 1-7; Depth gives the allusion that some objects…
1. appear in front or closer to the viewer
2. appear behind or further away from the viewer
3. are created by size relationships
4. are overlapping
5. have linear perspective
6. have atmospheric perspective
7. have dimensional form created by shading dark to light or light to dark
“Water and Air”
Assignment: Create a personal Mandala
1. Closed Composition
2. Organic Flow
3. Open Composition
4. Geometric Flow
This was a time of learning. This was a time for for war. But with this came “Growth”. This piece is on the idea of Growth within every single human. Showing signs of protection of one’s self and the exposure of a person nude portraying negligence and humility.
Assignment: Expressing pattern as a design
1. Create a realistic drawing
2. Explore your subject in three dimensions
3. Create a detail
4. Stylize the form
Pattern-> the form of an object is a diagram of forces
When thinking of how to incorporate forces of nature into patterns, I usually like to incorporate myself into my art piece. My pattern idea came based upon my love for swimming in water, so water was the subject. With that I asked myself, how can I draw water in a simple yet representational form. I looked back to the way I swim in a pool. my arms going back and forth in the water creating these smooth transitions to keep me up in the water. Thus with this in mind I tried drawing with that same motion. It then created the flowing-like patterns from lines that represented water.
Created from nature is simple, it’s humans that make it complex. Nature is nothing more than just an aesthetic in flows of layers. What I meant by that was the fact that within each part of nature lies layers that make it up as a whole. With this I showed the cruel fate of today but by the right it shows a small light of creativity through worse times. This entire design is a saying that all creativity starts with what you have in front of you. Using the trash to create this epidemy of gears, balls, or any other material that can be thrown away. It can be reused for something even greater with the right mind set.
The logo shows movement through its spiracle shapes and vivid line movement. The logo itself is uniform and concrete, but the easy flow to black and white is soft due to the balance of color shading. I used depth perception within the lines making the bolder line look closer the gradients in the back to show the different backgrounds. Your eyes travel slow through the viewing of the logo.
This project was an experiment into the contrast, motion, and noise within lines. My ideas were to create motion and feeling in each piece, thus with the drawing on the left shows the hard bold moving in space creating a sense of illusion. This created an idea to the viewer that their eyes were to follow each individual letter, but not fully break it down into what it says. With this it created a feeling of confusion to the audience.The piece on the right was a practice with fast, quick moving, strokes of color moving rapidly upward. The emphasized color that is creating the coal like figures on the bottom shows slow change while the viewers eyes are moving with the fire. This also had an effect on noise and how loud the piece got with its high contract and simple quick movement.
