Hello this is Christina Warrington and this is my “final” for project 3- Selfie_motion. I would say that this was one of the most challenging art project that I’ve had thus far. The emotion that I chose was anger and I tried to emphasize that through the facial expression and the jagged lines to show yelling/shouting. The main struggles that I’ve had was mainly being “stiff” with my sketches and not being as adventurous as I should have. I was being extremely cautious with the materials that I have and that caution ended up being my downfall. Even in the final product I am not satisfied with how it turned out. Hopefully it meets most of the criteria needed in this project.
With all the sketches that I have done and post I happy with the final that I made I feel like throughout this project I found out what it means to sketch. I was struggling to find the emotion in the other pictures, but in this one I feel like I got the setting. At the end I chose to go with anger which wasn’t one of the emotions that I wanted to do, but when looking back and restarting by taking a new picture I found that is what I felt from the photo. The feeling of anger is like disappointment and recovery which affects us and can make us better when we get through things.
Smile smile smile …. My wmood was fear and i with that I went with the question of what do eyes look like when panicked or afraid? like a person being held captive.with that in mind i tried to convey the fear
So the emotion I chose was fear- and the motion I chose was a spiral. Fear can lead you to spiral down into paranoia and madness, and I wanted to capture a melancholy, uncomfortable kind of fear with my piece- the kind of fear most people are living with nowadays. My focal point is my eyes- when afraid, people tend to cover their eyes, so I kind of wanted to do the opposite- opening your eyes up to the fear and embracing it in a sense. I sought out to capture the emotion of fear while turning myself into an object or creature to be feared.
I will the first to admit it- it’s a little messy. my original idea with the eyes failed because my printer ran out of ink. I used ink pens and acrylic paint to highlight the spirals and splatter “blood” around the piece, and my greyscale is even in the shape of a spiral!
