My paper cut attempt: to portray the depth of the box.
I had this idea while researching on this project. At first I wanted to make a Pandora’s box for myself. Using just black and white papers and tiny little foams, I created a sense of depth in the composition. However, I feel that the workmanship is not there and the structure itself is quite fragile…so in the end I decided to forgo the idea.
My attempts to arrange the compositions and create the types:
My questions during the group consultations – Is it okay without a background or is it too plain? What should I include in background? Should I manipulate the drawings digitally? Any idea how I should portray the last panel – hope?
My (failed) attempts to manipulate my drawings digitally:
I tried to find a lot of different boxes as the background:
It was a disaster…
My ‘dabao’ (Takeaways) from the group consultations:
- Can try using negative spaces to portray the word. In that way, the background is not too blank.
- Try using another symbol to represent hope in the last panel because the whole series are related to symbolism.
- It is not necessary for digital manipulation if it is not fitting.
