It was the biggest mistake of his/her life...


This is my final for my "Imagination and visual literacy" class.  The assignment was to design an illustration to the prompt "It was the biggest mistake of his or her life."  Hopefully my take makes sense, I think I've become a little more visually literate as a result of this class.  Imagination though?  Maybe.

The Dig

"...the most remarkable discovery came near the end of the fourth day.  Connections can undoubtedly be made between the subject matter of the monument and the belief systems of the early kingdoms, though dating the work has proven troublesome.  Our initial estimates place it well before our oldest known artifacts, the implications of which are extraordinary, assuming no grievous errors have been made.  Our conclusions are being held until further research is done.  Efforts to interpret the meaning of the various cells are ongoing."

Painting Portraits

 Here are a couple studies I worked on this week.  It was a lot of fun trying to sorta copy Da Vinci's style in Photoshop.


This is my attempt at emulating a more painterly style in Photoshop... I quite like the technique; I'm going to start incorporating something like it in more of my work.
