Up Close and Personal

final!  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

1. Upclose and Personal was our theme. How did you develop your ideas for this project and why did you choose your subject? At first I couldn't really think of something I really wanted to do, so I thought of doing something like a close-up of a face or a house (which is personal) but I thought that was boring and I like drawing people so I drew a person.
2. How did you demonstrate Emphasis in your work? Well the guts and stuff clearly are emphasized because your eye goes straight to the thing that should not be there and you are like "wow that shouldn't be there" but it is!!
3. What medium did you decide to use and why did you choose this medium over the others? Discuss how it enhances your piece. I used copic markers because I just really felt like using them to be honest. They kind of look like watercolors but are easier to use and create brighter colors.
We encourage risk taking in art. Risk taking can be as simple as trying a new technique or learning about a new medium to as complex as trying something totally new.
4.. Did you take any risks with this project? Explain. I've never tried to draw internal anatomy before so that was definitely something new/risky.

5. Of the 5 characteristics of great art (technique, concept, emotion, new, medium) which did you include in your art? Hopefully I included all but I think the most prominent would be the concept because it's really unusual, which I like.
