Minor Project Handed In!!

At last, my minor project on "Water for Elephants" has been handed in!!! I decided to work in a very different way to what I would normally by doing paper cut-outs rather than painting or drawing so I hope that it's paid off! These are some of my final images based on the novel which I made into a book;

Hola 2011!!


Ok, so we're a little way in to the new year now but for me, so far, so good! At the moment, I am working my butt off to finish the Water for Elephants project I've been working on at uni, and the dissertation, in time for the hand-in dates at the end of the month. It's been a bit hectic and haven't really done anything else with my life apart from work on that! The following images are cut-outs I made to experiment with the medium and to try and get some characterisation needed for the final images. I coloured them on Photoshop although I haven't decided if I will use colour in my final piece. I have found I really enjoy working in this way but in doing so, I have damaged my finger-for the moment can't actually feel the top of it, it's gone numb!! But an artist has to suffer for their work I suppose!
