Kick-art portrait

This is my portrait of myself as Kick-ass. I decided to do this because to be someone else all you need is a mask. In this project we weren't supposed to use any art materials, so after brainstorming I decided to use wax for the face and fabrics for the mask. I had to use plaster on my face then poured wax into the mold. The wax gave the face a weird feel and color,  making it kind of creepy. Some risk I took was plastering my entire face by myself. It took me a few times to get the final mold because it would get in my eyes and I would rip the plaster off. I didn't completely finish the mask because it shows that a hero is always changing. Thanks for reading.

Sticky Roses

This is my sticky rose project. My original idea was a to paint a rose in a thorn bush, making the thorns the sticky situation.  Then I though I could make the rose 3d and paint the thorns. Then I thought I could make the rose out of duck tape which made me think I should make more than one rose because tape is a sticky situation.  So there is repetition because of the use of 7 roses. The challenge of using duck tape is it sticks to everything. Thanks for reading.

Questionable UFO

This is my art for the project  questionable and proportion. It is questionable because its a UFO taking a person away, and you have no idea what will happen next. I used a very small proportion so I could make the entire scene. The medium I used was cardboard, some oven bake clay, toothpicks for the bench, and a plastic bottle. I really like how it turned out and its a kind of funny scene.  Thanks for reading.
