Art 3
Perspective Project

Here is our idea for the perspective project, my group is Alayna, Anna, Jay, Ashley, and Carrie. We are recreating a free expression tunnel like the one at NC State.

So far we have taped down everything and we drew the sketch in the first picture that we will base it off of. I think a challenge will be being able to use side walk chalk to make the graffiti look realistic

"Double Jointed"
Concentration 7

This is my friend Josie, her fingers are double jointed. Ive been trying to get a good mix of things that make the human body unique because well scars and birth marks arent the only things that make you different. Honestly there are so many things that i want to do with this project touching on different body types and even special needs, but unfortunately i only have about three weeks left to get all of my ap art portfolio finished. I am also scared to use a face in this concentration because my style is very up close and personal and im afraid a persons face wont fit in with the other pieces. Anyways, i also struggled with the lighting on this piece because the sun was directly above us. I like the way the shadows look in the background and the track and Jo's legs. It adds to the story of who she is. I think my favorite part is the shadows in the creases of her knuckles i think it looks really cool. Overall i like this piece and it definitely adds positive things to the rest of the series.

"Back Pedal"
Concentration 6

Here is my friend Ben, this is a scar from when he fell off his bike and the pedal dug into the side of his leg by his knee. I really love this scar because you can see the indentation of the pedal in his leg and i think it gives it such a good story. I love how it raised up and has changed colors i think it looks so sick! My challenge with this photo was that we were at the track and the sun was beating down so it was difficult to get a good contrast going. I also had a hard time convincing Ben to let me take pictures of his scar because ben is really shy and he didnt really want to help out, but he did eventually decide to help out. I like the background of this picture too i think it gives the photo depth in photographic terms and in story terms. Its just cool to think this picture is just a little part of this person, but they have an entire world of their own that you dont really know about. Anyways, im really pleased with how the end product of this turned out.
