Combining interesting design from totally different spaces into one page. The shapes that we thought will be totally out of context and look weird will fit in somehow. As long as when we are drawing the new designs, we make sure that there are always interesting turns and leading lines for the viewer to follow around the painting, even if the perspective is wrong, we can still create a nice, “correct” looking image.
In Class Exercise:
Horizontal Long Format exercise
Vertical Long format exercise
Asg 1: Horizontal format on A2 size paper
Asg 2: Vertical Format on A2 size paper
Challenges while drawing: I find it challenging to lose what is not needed and keep the important shapes and lines in the drawing, hence it might end up being overworked and too much. the tonal design of the scene could be improved as they should compliement each other. I think my vertical one looks more coherent as one drawing compared to the vertical one. but the edges between each shapes could be improved.
I thought the reflections from the water fit well with my nature theme
Final close up:
My Name is…. And i can found if you look close enough
Branches// Finding me I can hide and may be hidden among the crowds at times. My heart may be hidden to. But if you look close enough, you will definitely find me in there, somewhere
My name is … And i think deep but free
Fishes in water// I feel like i am like fishes out of water, not fitting into the environment that i am in. However, at the same time, i want to portray how deep my thoughts/I can be just like the deep layered water. And also, the only way you feel like u can fly is through swimming in the water
p.s. notice the special shiny backgrounds i used for these 2 pieces!
My name is… And i respond with strong emotions
Roaring waves// This represent my emotions, if am happy i definitely wont be hiding it. It would be hitting you in strong waves
My name is… And i conquer new heights
Mountains// For me to overcoming even greater heights. Having new challengers and continuing no matter how cold or how unfavourable the conditions are ahead of me

This is my first time doing papercuts and I definitely learnt a new skill! The time needed to plan each composition and to carve every single piece too longer than i way expected, but i am enjoying this outcome! I am glad that i put in this effort to create these works
