The one outstanding aspect of the work I did on this project would have to be the time it took. Even with the long time my teacher provided for me to complete this, I did not get it finished. When I first started this project I didn't realize it would take me this long. I calculated the amount of individual pieces I had to glue on and it equaled over 400. As an artists I was taking a huge risk with this because of the complexity of it. One piece off and the whole thing could be ruined. Fortunately with the work I had done on it there were no mistakes. Above you can see me working on the project. This piece was not completed and at first that bothered me. Out of all the project this was the only one I did not manage to complete. I was willing to change the whole look of the project just to give me a chance to complete it in time.
As an artist I communicated this idea of changing the look of my project with my teacher. She reminded me that art isn't in the final product but in the journey you take to get there. I went with my original idea keeping in mind that I probably wouldn't finish. This made me feel better about the incomplete work. This is something I could always go back to and finish at a later time.
Below you see what my piece was based off of. The overall design of it was surrounded by this mask from one of my favorite video game.
I developed skills through this project. I created a piece that needed a lot of patience. This was not a quick process. I needed to take my time and be very careful and attentive when making this. Below you can see what I managed to complete. Its not finished but it shows the great effort I took to get it to the stage it is at right now.
I am a 10th grade student at VMCCA working on creating an art experience in the classroom. My favorite form of art is digital painting. Some of my favorite artists are foolishkia and grittysugar. They are more modern artist that do mostly digital work. They use my favorite form of media. I hope to show my art growth through this blog.
