More Progress

Today I didn’t have as much time to paint, but got a little done. I got rid of the light blue boarder around the crab. I am glad because it was really bothering me. Here are some pictures.

Process of a Painting

This is my process of one of my new pieces. I spent so much time on the crab, but I really, really like it. For the background, I painted a thick layer of blue paint then laid wet paper towels on top of it whilst it dried. To prevent it from getting on my crab and the sketch of my face, I covered those with masking tape. I repeated this step with yellow, green, and red. I then went and did another coat of blue over that. I need to finish my face and touch up around the crab. I should be finished in a few days!

Lindsey Pavao

Hey guys, I know I don’t have many followers, but I want everyone to know this chick! Lindsey Pavao is this amazing singer who was on the show “The Voice” (The American version). She didn’t make it through last night and it made me so sad! She was definitely the better of the two performances for Christina’s team. She is such an amazing singer and I hope that she will not let this be the end of her road. I know if she releases an album that many people will buy it. I am kinda glad she got off the show, though. Sometimes shows like that put you in a very binding contract if you win, and they don’t let you release CD and junk for x amount of time. So, maybe this was a good thing. I sure hope so. I am going to try to get in contact with her because I want to paint a portrait of her, and she can have it if she likes. Anyway, go check out her blog! LINK. Please give her your support!

BBC Poster

We had an assignment to make a BBC poster inspired by this guy.

This is my first one (I haven’t done the second one yet):

I really like this piece and it wasn’t too hard to make. The story I used is this. Errr… I can’t get BBC to open on the computer I am on right now, so I will have to link it later. I will give a brief summary, though. Apparently, Italy cut funding of art museums by 40% (or something close to that. the point is that it was a huge percentage). So, to protest, a museum is burning 3 art pieces a week. Artist are backing this protest, too. The tank in my piece is made out of one of the pieces that was burn. It was painted by a french artist. Once I get the link, you can get more details.

Ah-ha! Here is the link: LINK

Photoshop Face Assignment

In photography, we had an assignment to transpose our face onto a “famous” person. I found this picture in a Hunger Games magazine. I had to scan it and my teacher had to help me get the fold line off of the picture from the original scan. (There was a huge crease going right across his face.)

This is what I came out with. I worked really hard on it and I think it worked out well. My photography teacher too the original picture of me which I took my face from. We had to match the lighting so I could actually transpose my face convincingly. This project was really fun.
