Since I can't upload any new digital pictures yet, I might as well use my phone to take a picture of my latest work I'm doing at school.
So basically our theme was to create a picture that shows 5 symbols that represent you. We were studying Keith Harring and his work back in the 90s; apparantly everyone did their's differently (including me) but that was the whole point; create something in your own perspective, no copying. So I put this project to the test.
My picture I think has more than 5 symbols: I love space, my 2nd career plan was to become an astronomer and I also love aliens, so I used two different species of alien that I made up (you can see on their tongues on who's who). The jewel that the top alien is holding by her tongue is my symbol you see everytime I make my dragonsona
; it represents a sun, since I'm part Cherokee and usually everyone has their own element symbol or whatnot.
The stars represent that I'm a bright person able to achieve everyday by doing my best. And the 5th is Saturn, which is my zodiac planet.
So the whole concept about this picture is that the female alien is out in space with her most precious jewel that is being held by her tongue. The male alien spots the jewel and the female, and starts to seduce her by caressing her tongue to his. By then, she begins to become manipulated, and--well you can think up the rest.
Sketched it first in my sketchbook, then drew it on a bigger paper by using line contours, began darkening the lines with a fine sharpy to a thick regular sharpy, and currently using prime color pencils to color the picture. So far it's coming out good, and hopefully I'm able to finish this soon, because I'm going to be entering an art contest that begins on Nov. 2nd.
So enjoy, and wish me luck!
