My intent while doing this project was to understand and study the bones of the human body, along with the bones of other earthly animals.Also, as usual I also wanted to create beautiful pieces. To understand bones is essential in Digital Media and Animation because, to make a human character believable, you have to know where bones would go in order to make it realistic and maintain the right proportions. For the recreation of an art piece I found, I wanted to make it a little abstract compared to the original. I also payed a lot of attention to line weight because, in the original there was no line weight variation and I felt by adding line weight variation, it took the piece to a whole other level. Balance is created in the image by adding the roses and half of the rib cage and a butterfly for half of the llium. I didn’t just add them, but I made the about the same size as it corresponding side to maintain proportion. For the human skull studies, I focused more on color, space and contrast. I used water color to paint the skull on the right because when it dries it has a similar texture to an actual skull. I choose to use cool color to symbolize how cool the the touch the bones actually felt. I positioned the bones an equal space to the center to create balance. Lastly, for the left side I wanted there to be a 50/50 contrast and overall, I wanted the black of the left side to contrast the color on the right.
I believe that I fulfilled my intents because, I now under stand the human body even better and I also created to beautiful pieces. If I were to redo this project, I don’t think I would change anything about them besides when I decided to start them. My ideal time would be to start a week earlier than I did so everything didn’t feel so cut throat trying to finish it last minute. Other than that, I am very satisfied with both pieces overall.
