Jorge Buenabad – s1 Discover

Story: There are depths unknown to us. Suffocated of its gleaming blue light, the ocean now an ebony veil. A bastard with no name lurks unopposed. It is always unfortunate to hear of those missing out at sea, however. Alyona’s perilous journey is not one of those tales.

  • I believe the shapes in the picture to be organic. The is no clear foreground nor background due to the 50/50 ratio between the positive and negative spaces, leading me to think that the picture is ambiguous.

 

Story: The enemy never slept. We tucked in our loved ones while they loomed over our shoulders. In wisps of wind, we swore we heard nothing. Now they are at our steps, waiting.

  • No shape in this picture is geometric but organic. The leaf easily represents the foreground. However, I can not say that the picture is obvious because it lacks the 30/70 split. I will fix the ratio in the future.

 

 

Steph Balloqui – final images (step four: deliver)

Hello guys, gals, and gender rebel pals! Here’s the final images, inked and scanned!

 

Obvious

One problem I quickly encountered while inking my images was that being left handed, as well as never working with ink before, made it a really difficult process- but I managed! To get the exact shape of the image, I cut out my original sketch and used it as a stencil.

 

Ambiguous

This one was my favorite to do, as I found myself having more space and room to be creative and freestyle the work while also getting the original wood pattern to come out. This piece also reminds me a little bit of the album cover to Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures with the usage of only black and white with heavy line/shape work.

My ambiguous was inking in a way that its like a left versus right. I wanted a yin yang which makes everything pop out more. My first ink drawing was smaller and made the drawing a bit bigger so it could relate everything better. The first one had a smaller shape shows more of the outside and didn’t get the right proportions that I wanted.

After presenting I found out what I did wrong and what I could to make everything come together better, and to focus on the actual black vs white.

My obvious ink drawing started off good, but the proportions were off just a bit so I changed it while going into the Bristol. So I zoomed in on the picture and made the proportions better. From 60/40 to 70/30.

I will be editing the pictures and turning in on Tuesday

 

Steph Balloqui – images

Obvious #1- Found on a construction site near my house. I was trespassing on some private property because “be gay do crimes” and I stumbled upon a TON of broken up concrete. I like to think that they accidentally dropped a car in this spot, or that they lost control of the equipment and it all fell apart.

Obvious #2- I switched this image out from the last one because i liked how much clearer this image is. This was taken outside of the train station, and I like to think that one too my phones dropping onto the concrete left a hole.

Obvious #3- There’s a piece of sidewalk outside of a bar I used to work at, and when it was first poured it was written out to spell “Gordie”, but maybe Gordie missed one too many child support payments and his angry ex wife destroyed the “r” almost completely, and now it reads “Go Die”.

Ambiguous #1- A picture of the sidewalk taken with flash at around 3am. I was looking for animal bones in the woodsy area by my house (I collect bones I’m not hexing anyone I promise) and thought that maybe this would be an interesting idea.

Ambiguous #2- A boat dock at 7am. I decided to come back and take this picture after I took the first one with flash earlier in the morning, and picked a different spot so the patterns would look different. I managed to get onto the property of the country club by my house and loved how “clean” the dock looked.

Ambiguous #3- The same dock at around 4am. Taken with flash, and you can even see the shadow of my phone. This was from the same night I was looking for animal bones, and I realize that it looks like I might be a serial killer due to me always going out at night but I promise I haven’t killed anyone; it’s just easier to look for bones at night.
