I'm stuck now. I have all my pictures with me but I can't think of a theme for the third project. I have so far a water and plant theme, and some awesome pictures to work with. I think I'll just get started and see if anything comes to me!

HERE IS THE STAR CARD. I LOVE IT. BECAUSE I'M IN IT. AND ITS AWESOME! OK, I'M WRITING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE I'M EXCITED. THIS CARD INCLUDES THE WATER AND STAR ELEMENTS. I MADE A SHIT TON OF LAYERS AND THATS WHY THIS LOOKS SO SWEET. THE WATER IS TRANSLUCENT AND IS MADE WITH THE GRADIENT TOOL. YEAH!

ok so this is the card so far. i've been adding layers onto the face in a swirly flowy way. the stars are loose around the head to look like hair. they will eventually fade into the background (not sure what that will be yet) and i'm beginning to put water in the corner. we'll see where it goes!

well it is now 12:00 and i need to go to lunch. I've taken a picture of me and messed it up in photoshop. i gave it the cut out filter and opened it in illustrator, and now i'm in the process of making layers upon layers upone LAYERS. sickening.

I've decided to start with the tarot card "The Star". I eventually want to do the sun and the moon, and the lovers, also known as love. This card represents a bright future, joy, harmony, positiveness, etc. There is usually a woman depicted pouring water while looking hopefully to the stars. I'm going to use myself for this project. here are some sketches..

So here's the first OC card I finished. The Towers one is a work in progress. This card includes students from the early 1900's in the composites in Towers (including Helen Keller! top right), and the background is a photo of an old clock and stained glass window in the Philomathean Room.

This is the finished product. I wanted to represent the telekinesis portion of Fatima's personality with all of the circles. I tried really hard to stay away from neons, and i think i succeeded. Fatima said she likes graphic retro art, so this was my first attempt at that style. I like it!

Ok so we are doing an abstract portrait on someone in the class. My project is on Fatima. She likes graphic, retro art, would be a cheetah, and is an aries. she would like to have telekenesis. i've figured out through the course of this project so far, that sometimes you have to make things that you don't like. I REALLY wanted to put neon colors in this, but they are Fatima's least favorite colors. Anyway, this is it so far!

We're doing a caricature of a teacher. I chose to do mine on Louise Captein, my painting teacher. Currently in her class I am exploring the works and techniques of Van Gogh, so I decided to turn her portrait into a Van Gogh style painting. This is the finished product!
I put a tulip in her hand because Louise is from the Netherlands. Holland is stereotyped with tulips and windmills, and she told me that she lived the stereotypical Dutch life. As a child she used to clean tulip bulbs to send to America, so I thought that would be appropriate. I used a swirly background and tried to incorporate as many colors as I could to copy Van Gogh's style.
