This project used an abnormally shaped drawing space. I had to create a sketch for my pumpkin and transfer it through on to the round shaped canvas. I developed new skills through this project. Instead or working on a flat surface I created my art on a round surface. In addition to the paint on the pumpkin I am also going to have a Mario power block hanging from the stem. While working I realized that cutting the stem of the pumpkin wont be the best idea so I went with keeping it on.
The stem on my pumpkin was a contradictory color to the rest of my pumpkin. As an artist I solved this problem by using metallic gold to cover it up. It took two coats to fully cover up the stem but after wards the color seemed to fit with the whole piece.
As an artist I observed through my art. I looked at the Mario land scape and characters to create my peace. I used references from the older games rather than the newer ones. They seemed more simplistic and 2D which would be easier for me to draw. Since I was using flat colors and not using a lot of shading I didn't want to use the 3D reference. My finished product is shown below.
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.
