The Ambush

Here's my final assignment for my composition class. I was planning on doing the whole thing in acrylic, but sick days and time constraints forced me to finish digitally. The composition theme for this assignment was subjective movement through the use of gestures (things pointing one way, eyes looking another way, etc.). For the concept, I decided to have a robot wondering through a rain forest and being ambushed by a monster with molten claws. The whole piece felt rushed, even after going back into the piece to push it a little more.

The Discovery

Another composition assignment. I decided to continue experimenting with an acrylic under painting plus digital. The composition theme for this assignment was space movement through the use of archways, windows, pathways, clutter, and empty space. I decided to illustrate the scrap metal robot, the robot I drew in my earlier assignment, discovering a strange rain forest.

This piece was done for my illustration class. The image was first created digitally, then outputted as a screen printed poster, which is three colors. I've known about the screen printing process for awhile now, but this was my first time going through the whole process and doing it with my own hands. You really do learn to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of screen printed posters made by big name artists after trying to do it yourself. There was a lot of trial and error and a lot of messed up prints. I decided to make a small run of 12 to test the waters, but only 6 prints came out looking decent. It was a good learning experience overall, and I plan on printing some more of my stuff in the future.
