OMG YOU GUYS, I FINALLY GET TO USE MY TABLET + PHOTOSHOP FOR AN ART PROJECT IN A CLASS!!! AAAA! :D
The prof gave us a super open-ended project that:
1. Involves the body
2. Includes Mark-Making
3. Is comprised of 3-5 related images.
There's a bit more criteria, but for the most part, I sweet-talked her into letting me do something that I would probably draw FOR FUN and eventually SELL anyway. o___o ...I'm still somewhat in denial. It's too good to be true!
Anyway, the main theme I've narrowed down involves body image. I'm trying to embrace the style of Anime as well, seeing as I really enjoy it, and it fits conveniently well with my series. The characters in question are all female villains frompopular anime shows. Android 18, Queen Beryl, and Kneesocks+Scanty. I chose these three because they aren't completely human. They're humanoids, but generally supernatural to some extent. I combined this with the fact that they would all be beautiful models on the cover of magazines. What I'm attempting to point out is that what we generally see on the cover of a magazine is a hyper-idealized, impossible standard that isn't an accurate representation of the average human woman. ...Pretty cliche message, I guess, yeah, but I think it works! :)
So far I'd really like to add Team Rocket's Jesse, and maybe Lust from FMA, but we'll see how much time I get to add to this project.
