So, I decided to post my project for my Conceptual illustration class. We were given a quote and a word we had to base our final black and white illustration. My quote was:
"I used to be Snow White, but I drifted" - Mae West
My word was disguise.
My teacher was kind enough to let me do my 3-D/digital technique for this last project. Overall, i've probably spent around 20 hours on this. My goal is to get fast enough to do one of these in a day (model making time included). And being as this is my first sculpture that I've done that has to LOOK like someone, let me just say...it's really, really hard. I think I got pretty close.
Again, these next few images may not be suitable for young children. Please use your own discretion.
The model. Pretty rough, but i've found that when I use this technique, it's ok to have some "rough" edges and any background. I love the light over my oven.
about 3/4 done
I always see things that I want to fix, but I have to learn to stop messing with it. I exaggerated the arms and angle of her body and other....attributes.
Yeah, like I said. Pretty risque. DEFINITELY a huge step from what I normally do, but it's refreshing to do something different and out of my comfort zone.
I'm also working on a rather risque piece for my conceptual illustration class which I'm not sure I should post here...but we'll see. Let's just say it involves Mae West dressed (or not dressed...) as Snow white, apples, and...well..that's about it.
