A scene from the dead space 2 "dementia" trailer, with Isaac still in his old Engineering suit. carved a stamp from linoleum and stamped this out. The unitoligist writing is backwards because of this... damn my inability to foresee this!
I made this last year for my Advanced Studio class. Our project was to pick an artist (but not the typical ones that everyone picks like Van Gogh or Monet) and mimic their style. So, as I was trying to look for an artist I've never heard of before whose art was really amazing and innovative, I stumbled on exactly that: www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/03…
This Indian couple, going by the nickname Hari and Deepti, cuts silhouettes out of watercolor paper and layer them on top of each other to create an image or scene, then they put them together in a shadow box and place a light behind it, making for a stunning creation! After looking through all their pieces, I read how they make them, then decided the supplies would be simple enough to gather! Then my mind was set on mimicking their style to depict this amazing scene from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! I'm not sure what they're called, but I like to call them "Light Boxes"!
I love Harry Potter! Ob...viously...(said in Snape's voice) So it was a simple decision to make! The third book/movie isn't my favorite, but I love them all anyways! Plus, this scene is just soooo amazing! Harry totally kicks ass in this moment! First, he tried to save his Godfather, who he thought was trying to murder him only moments earlier, from having his soul sucked! Then he and Hermione went BACK IN TIME to save Sirius! Then he performs his first successful patronus, which scares away 100 dementors! Now, try and tell me that isn't awesome! And clearly this moment in the series is one of the most iconic as well as one of the most visually engaging! It was a must for this project!
It was simple enough and I got the hang of it pretty quickly! It was weird though, trying to capture my style in their art form. To cut my images instead of draw them. But it sure was fun! And I bought a light that changes to the coolest colors, so it's a pretty awesome creation that you can stare at for quite a while! I wish I could find a way to upload a video of it changing colors, but I don't have the time. But yeah, this is a picture of how it looks in the dark with the inside light on! It turned out exactly how I imagined it would and it's probably my favorite piece of art I've ever done! I was supposed to upload all of my favorite art projects I did throughout high school during the summer but I forgot, so I had to upload this now, before I start my second one! So, if you liked this, look forward to more of these, b/c I love 'em! The next one will be a depiction of the scene in The Nightmare Before Christmas where Jack Skellington sings on the iconic hill in Halloween Town's graveyard! I can't wait!
Oh, and btw, that Harry Potter logo is the one I made for my Graphic Design class as well. We got to recreate a book jacket and I chose to do the Deathly Hallows but we couldn't use the same font or logo as the original, so I made my own font!
