Medium: Poster Colour
This was an exercise mainly on perspective. We had to cut out people from magazines to fill up the rooms that we had chosen (there were a few different ones) and place them at appropriate places (to fit the perspective and stuff). It took quite a while cause it’s difficult to get people at the right angle/size/pose. Then we also had to paint the room in a single colour with varying tones.
(Refer to the painting now, not picture)
I like the Japanese girl because I think she turned out the best out of all the other people. Hiphop guy seems alright too. The guy in the middle could have more shadings on his shirt. Other than that, I also liked how I did the background. And the painting in the corridor. It’s odd to paint a painting in your painting. Esp when you’re not exactly copying it detailedly, but just painting it because it’s in the picture and at the same time you have to make sure that it looks like the original. (You get what I mean?)
Overall it could have seemed like they were at an art gallery. Except that the carpet and sofa makes it much more homey looking. Obviously, it doesn’t make sense for Hip Hop Guy to be breakdancing in the cramped living room. But I liked him and he fitted at that part, and filled up space, so. There he is. Without him it would seem awkward for the other four. Like they are 4 friends stuck in someone’s house but they’re kinda distant. Try covering Hip Hop Guy. Now Japanese Girl looks like she secretly likes Green Shirt Guy. And Awkward Black Shirt Guy looks like he likes the Girl Going Down the Stairs. Talk about watching too much Kdrama.
I didn’t draw in Rocker Guy (at the top) in the end cause he was a little too big to fit in there, although he’s at the right perspective.
