For this project I really wanted to experiment with a medium I haven't worked with. Originally, I planned on trying to create 3d models and/or working with creating augmented reality scenes, but they didn't turn out so great. I then decided to try digitally drawing images that either convey a lie or truth about myself. I've never tried digitally drawing, and am not the strongest fine artist (drawing/painting), but I really want to push myself as an artist and start working with and getting comfortable with other tools and mediums of digital art. Practice makes perfect! I plan to draw all of my images using an online drawing application and by using reference photos. I upload the photos to an HTML color picker, which tells me the hex color code for any aspect of the image I highlight, which I then use to select the right color to draw with in the app.

For the final project, I’ve continued with putting together animations. I have a small TV and several laptops that I can use to display my project. I’ve gone with a theme of self-portraits and want to do a “portrait” showing different sides of myself on each screen. The small TV The electronics I plan to use I put together a collage in the shape of a human head for one of the portraits focused on my entertainment interests and the apps that I use in my daily life. I also recorded a little bit of the beginning of one of my League games which I regularly spend time playing in a group with friends and will be incorporated in this portrait. To make the collage I clipped many logos and symbols representing different interests of choice onto a layer below in the shape of the head with glasses. Another one of the portraits I’m including will have some more “surface” qualities like my school major, birth date, and name. The base background I’ll be using to represent a more grim mood:
