I am still teaching myself Adobe Photoshop, and with the release of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ approaching I decided to design something based on the franchise. By using basic shapes and block colours I recreated the characters BB8 and R2D2 on the planet Jakku.

Here is my first ever attempt facepaint/bodypaint/makeup. I was going for an alien-esque look. Though it could be classed as Sully from Monsters Inc. I am really interested in learning more about this skill so am teaching myself techniques.

This was a piece I did whilst playing with quick illustration, typography, and composition. It’s a piece based on the quotes from the television show ‘Impractical Jokers’.
Thumb painting/printing! I was doing some thumb printing for another project and decided to explore into it. I painted an image directly on my thumb (e.g. a landscape, flowers etc.) and then carefully pressed it onto paper three different times to see how it looked each time a layer of paint came off.
This is from mixing pva glue, shaving foam, and acrylic paint. It created a colourful paste which I could paint onto paper in whatever shape or form I wanted to. I went for an atmospheric background.
This was the third piece I did for a Pencil VS Camera project. It was inspired by the artist Ben Heine. It is of my neighbours house which I have then put a dragon overhead burning it down.

This was the second piece I did for a Pencil VS Camera project. It was inspired by the artist Ben Heine. It is of the steps in my garden which I have then turned into a sad image of a bird that can’t reach their mother and sibling.
This technique was achieved by spreading PVA glue onto a piece of paper. I then sprinkled sugar over it, then once dry painted watercolours over it.

In my Foundation Art & Design we each had an apple in front of us. The aim was to draw this apple using different techniques. This was my pointillism technique apple.

This was from my Foundation Art & Design. It’s of a life model and was a quick five minute task. Each person had one minute to add whatever they wanted to the drawing in any medium. Once the minute was over, it would then rotate onto the next person. This was the outcome.
My theme for Visual Studies is ‘Procession’. A definition of ‘Procession’ is a big group moving forward. This piece I made defines the procession within the LGBT community. I have collaged the background to make their flag out of coloured paper, and then illustrated the world and coloured it with pencils. This piece is to symbolise the LGBT community moving forward in the world with laws and acceptance.
Here is a drawing of a cats face.
This was the aftermath of the water, spirits, and inks on paper.
