Evaluation

For my final piece I have created a tryptic of 3 digital edits. Each edit is of a different vocalist from a band I listen to.

 In my proposal it states that I will create a final piece going down the digital/graphics/photo based route and it will be based around music. So by doing this,I have related back to my proposal and followed it through. 

I created my final piece by firstly,using illustrator to go over the out line of the vocalist,this was just a basic outline over the faded template. For this I used the photographs I had taken of them myself at previous gigs I had been to. I then experimented and changed the colour of the line multiple times. I changed it to mainly bright and vibrant colours as I planned to have an edited dulled black and white photograph in the background,so the bright colours would stand out. I then went into photoshop,opened the image I was working from and added multiple filters over the top to see which I preferred. I then layered the bright outline over the dull image and made it slightly offset. I did this with all 3.

Next I started looking into typography and graphic artists who emerge text with photos. I collected a few images I liked and used them to inspire me to layer text over my digital edits. I used a causal font as on one of David Carsons pieces he does and it sits well.. it isn’t too bold,but it isn’t plain. The 2nd designer I looked at inspired me to put my text into a bright font,as themselves used a bright font,over a photograph of a person which is similar to what I was doing. I then repeated this for the following 2 edits. 

I decided to go forward with the digital side of art as it is an area that I am most comfortable with,also I have a genuine interest for it as I have used photoshop and illustrator throughout school,also I am good at it. In my proposal it states I was going to go forward down this route. 

Overall I am pleased with how my final piece has turned out,as it follows my proposal and as from the start I knew I wanted to do a digital outcome and I have. It relates to my theme of the music industry which is something I am passionate about. My favourite aspect of it is the fact that each edit is a different colour based and slightly more offset,also that each edit is a different person,as originally I planned to do 3 of the same. This way I think it’s more interesting to look at and not as repetitive. There is nothing I would necessarily changed,but If I was too do this again,I would try more complex images and try too add abit more detail and see what it would look like.

Dry Point Etching

This is my acetate with the photo of my vans shoe etched into it. I used this photo because I have used it throughout my 3D,illustrator and drawings,therefore it made sense to carry it on with my dry point.


In this print I created a background,by spraying blue and orange spray paint on it. I then printed my shoe over in green ink. This is my least favourite print because I used to much ink and it printed very thick.


On this print I printed onto the original image of my shoe,that I have used throughout my work. I like this print because it’s very dark,messy and grungy.


This is a basic print,which has been printed onto white paper.

This is a other basic print,printed into white paper.


With this print I sprayed purple spray paint onto white paper created a lovely background. I then printed my acetate onto it in green ink. I like this print because of the contrast of colours.

My interpretation of the picture above is that the 2 men are pilots and they were the first people to fly over the Atlantic ocean and it was a big achievement.

My interpretation of this image is that the women are beauty pageants,the group of young men behind her are perving on her,however the old man is juts sat minding his business because he has respect and sees women as more than an sexual object.

The image subversive the writing because although the quote is very sentimental,the image flips it and makes it sound painful.

This photo shows body dysmorphia,which is were a person in this case a young girl is looking at her reflection in the mirror and sees herself as being a lot larger than she actually is or seriously lacks confidence in her own skin.

The man feels as though he has lost himself and is trying to return to his roots.

From this photo i interpretive that where the crosses are placed its the burials of people who have smoked and died from it. Then where the no smoking area is,the ground is clear of all crosses because by not smoking,you won’t die.

 

photoshop-practice

In this edit I have used the layering tool to layer some images from my previous contact sheet on top of one another then used adjustments and the layer modes to make the image more enhanced.
