This week, I continued work on my 2nd surreal piece that I mentioned in my previous post. For one element of this piece, I used the pen tool to make a vector graphic of an E30 BMW, which I'm going to attach to this post. This is probably the best work I've done with the pen tool, and some of my very best work ever. I'm very excited to finish this piece!

2nd Surreal Piece

This weeks project is another surreal piece based on a story. Mine involves aliens, BMWs, and hit and runs. So far, I'm using only the pen tool, however I haven't been working on this for very long. I like where it appears to be going, and I cannot wait to see how it will turn out.

More Than Usual Contest

This week I made a piece for the Worth 1000 contest entitled more than usual, in which you take a common thing, but make it "more than usual." For this, I took the iPhone 4, and added a couple extra buttons and cameras. It turned out pretty well, though on the home buttons, I need to fix the shadows, as we decided in the critique. I had few to no major issues/ stumbling blocks in the creation of this particular piece, which I attribute to the minimalist nature of the iPhone and it's components.

Cute+Scary Childrens Book Cover II

This week I completed my Cute and Scary Children's book cover project. It was probably the most fun project I've done all year, and one of my best too. I used the pen tool for nearly everything in this project, as well as a couple custom bloodstain brushes I downloaded, which were really, really great! I think having an idea of what I wanted to do and having a vision made this project enjoyable and better executed than past projects.
