When I first began designing my artwork I was planning on creating a
piece that portraied the Ying-Yang using the image of a demon and an angel ,
but then I realized that it might be more interesting if I create something
different for a change . I decided to design my artwork from how I was
feeling at that moment instead of designing something off my thoughts about
The artwork the I have created is based on the way I have been feeling
lately . I feel like a failure because pf the marks I received on my report card .
It feels like my life is being torn apart . To portray this effect I created a
figure out of black plastic sheet , who's body is shattering apart by beems of
light that represent his emotions . I used the elements and principles of
design when focusing on the dominance, movement, and variety in the piece .
I used the colour black only in the figure so that it would catch the viewers
eye. Movement is shown in the shapes that are breaking off the figures body .
variety is used in the background shapes . I used warm and cool colours and
jagged shapes in the background to create a broken glass effect while the
pink background gives an infinit effect .
When I started my artwork , my first sketches where created using my
own style .When I finished my second finished sketch I decided to use my
mentor's (Gustav Klimt) style in my artwork . I accomplished this mixing
realism and abstract . Abstract was used in the background and realism was
used in the proportions of the figure .
In the future I plan to create more...
