Over the past week, I have been experimenting with the watercolours that I purchased last Tuesday.
Drawing inspirations from the artists I showed last week, I was able to develop some decent progress pieces, and I am quite happy with the results.
Using my memory of the Gorillaz music video for El Manana, I developed these two inspired artworks:
I challenged myself last week by trying to convert pixel art into a watercolour piece. For this challenge, I used the character Sans from Undertale.
After these were completed, I felt more confident with the medium and have developed two pieces that I am happy to continue with.
As these works are only at an A4 size, I wanted to make the scenery a little more open than what I normally would. I am happy with the quality that I have produced so far as they maintain the cohesive subject matter as per my previous works.
As throughout my previous studio class, I have always added a little touch of comedic essence to my work. Last trimester was a sausage themed music festival. This trimester has touched on the idea of wearing a mask to hide your inner demons which has been present throughout.
The Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop Us All meme is a nice addition to this ideology as it allows for a comedic way for me to tell an additional narrative to my work. The next piece will be heavily influenced by this meme.
Prepare yourself. It only gets weirder from here.
