progress on the D.F. (as of mid-April)

| No Comments

As of now, I have changed my idea and thinking about making a little slideshow or Quick time movie of my portraits (which I will need some assistance in). So far I have been building on my last portrait that I made with the red circles.
Here is what I have done as of now...

you may not notice but the face with the camera is shifting and so are the bubbles. they move slightly in each image. I plan on making 12 total, right now i have 9.

These 3 main images are the focus for the collages that I will be putting on the boxes at the end of the project.

Newer Idea:
Taking my collage and photoshopping layers and shapes onto it. Then projecting it onto a screen. I may hang other textures and colored shapes from the screen and play with the image more. Then take a photo of the projected image - printed onto 17'' X 22'' paper.

Critique 1

| 1 Comment

For our first class critique, my group was very supportive and suggested that I use text of some sort on all of my collages to make them cohesive. I felt comfortable about my black and white piece and had questions about my blue one - on how to push it. They thought I could add large font sizes on top that describes certain art/artists that I admire. For my 3rd collage, I was thinking about doing contour drawing and overlaying the original image. For the text, I would scan in my own handwriting to keep it flowing.
That was all we basically discussed about my images. Also we talked about using the boxes like a book and laying them on their sides when displayed. Maybe letting one object that resembles myself inside. Those objects still need to be determined.

D.F. update

| 3 Comments

Since last critique, I have worked on making collages. So far, I have made 2. I plan on making at least 2 more depending on how my first ones go. Materials I used: magazines, glue, water color, newspaper, acrylic paint, and digital photography. I am scanning them in and altering them in Photoshop.
