For this last assignment for 2D, we were required to come up with 4 x 3 panels to describe ourselves. This is similar to the previous assignment, except this time we need to come up with 12 instead of 4 compositions. Besides that, this time round we will have to play with elements of colours and its different combinations.
ME, MYSELF & I
Before starting, I need to think of the various personalities, characteristics or things that describes me.
Because I am not really confident with doing illustration or using traditional methods I decided to approach collage style for this assignment. One style i really like is the vintage surreal collage style.
- Karen Lynch
Karen lynch uses vintage pictures and piece them up together creating a vibrant surrealist collage which I really like. Her collages style mainly focuses on creating imaginative settings by layering different images together.
- Eugenia Loli
Similar to Karen Lynch, Eugenia Loli also does Surreal Collages. Her collages really wows me because they are so creative. She is able to find the correct moments to piece with the correct settings creating a really fun and amazing compositions.
- Julia Geiser
Another surreal collage artist is Julia Geiser where most of her collage involves a person. She creates a surrealist composition by slicing and dividing the body parts and adding different images to it. Although it looks creepy, but I think this is an interesting style to show the me portion.
Playing with different colour combinations can help to make your composition stand out and make them pleasing to look at. Below are some examples on the different ways we can play with the colours.
Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints.
Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel are considered complementary.
Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.
The split-complementary color scheme is a variation of the complementary color scheme. In addition to the base color, it uses the two colors adjacent to its complement.
A triadic color scheme uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel.
