Design project 4
Hokay, soh. The problem with art is, when you're working on it and looking at it up close, it looks totally different from the way it looks at a distance. With drawings, you can say, "Oh, I can't see that shape very well from farther away. It should be darkened," or whatever. So the problem with cut-and-paste art is, by the time you have the pieces in place and CAN step back and really look at the piece, it's too late to change with subtleties like shading or value.
I think this could have been so much better than it turned out... but here it is.
Project 4: In one image, incorporate figure-ground reversal, 3D, and implied shape.
