Sorry for it being so late, but I was having trouble with it, I think this the right approach now. Numbers 13, 14, and 15 are sketches of a person cooking, the book says recipe for perfect life and the ingredients are the social media icons. Numbers 16 and 17 may be hard to understand from the picture. The sketches are of a husband and wife. The wife posted a picture of her husband putting a necklace on her as a gift and got a like which is what the computer screen is showing. However in reality the husband is actually choking her, it is sowing how people only how the good side of life.
I know my value studies aren’t the best, but I think I used the multiply layer a bit too much. I took off the small party hat and the muzzle the bear had. I decided to show a headlight to showcase the bear like how it would in an actual circus. I think the light makes the illustration have more of an emotional aspect.
Here’s my Editorial Illustration digital value shadings. I know it’s not the best, but I worked hard to get these pictures colored in with different values and I added numbers on top of them to make it easier for everyone to identify.
To those of you who have submitted and workshops your editorial illustration ideas… GREAT JOB! On the whole we have some really wonderful potential illustrations!
However… A truly DISTURBING number of you guys have not posted your concept sketches, which were due on Tuesday the 11th. You have missed your deadline and have fallen behind.
TOMORROW Tuesday the 18th is the deadline for your Digital Value Studies. Again please post to the Editorial Illustration page to be found in COURSE WORK.
And next week Tuesday the 25th is the Deadline for the Final Pencil drawing, which we will begin to ink in class.
Deadlines are part of being a professional working artist.
The time to get it together is NOW.
ALSO- to be fully prepared for your next class Tuesday the 25th you must READ the 4 posts on WORKING IN COLOR to be found in RESOURCES.
I decided to change the first sketch entirely. The metaphor for this image is still the same as the original first sketch. I drew some tree branches to show that there’s some background and that the boy is looking at a reflection from the puddle. Here’s the image that inspired this sketch below:
Here’s the article for this sketch: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-muppet-sesame-street_us_58cf5f15e4b0be71dcf5b455
I redrew this sketch and while the the characters for the most part retained the same pose, there is some differences with the hand placements. I also added a background to the drawing. In case you missed it, this sketch is for this article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-muppet-sesame-street_us_58cf5f15e4b0be71dcf5b455
I used two photos as references for this sketch redo. The first one below is for the pose and handle, while the second one below is for the background.
