Artur Szygulski

 I love Artur's work because she takes human forms and puts them in random places with a sense of rhythm. I would like to learn how she has detail and and movement at the same time.

Lukas Brezak

Lukas' work attracted me because he uses a computer to render these retro-ish images. He uses just about every tool in the book to create them. 

Nat Monney

Nat's work attracted me because he create these stunning imaginary landscapes. I also adore his uses of color thought his made up worlds.

Gediminas Pranckevicius

I remember making up all these crazy houses in my head when I was little, that's the first thing I thought of when I first saw Gediminas' work. I love that his work looks believable yet completely unbaleivable at the same time.

Gonzalo Kenny

Gonzalo's art work is truly stunning. Between his love of open spaces and all thing imaginary he creates beautiful worlds from the past and future.

(Little Dude)

I started by drawing out my figure, Little Dude, and glueing him together to see how it all would work, then I scanned my sketch into Illustrator, traced it, and started building my character. I used both the pen tool and the shape tool to create him. I decided on a purple color scheme for the simple fact that I like it.  Overall I am very pleases with how he came out and I feel as though I learned a lot of useful things the I can apply to projects in the future.

Version 1 of the Gestalt Principles Project

My first idea for this project was to make an image that showed the viewer how homosexual couples are influenced by religion. 

Version 2 of the Gestalt Principles Project

In my second version I changed color and figure but kept the text.

Version 3 (final) of the Gestalt Principles Project

In my last design I went away from my original idea and made it about how religion can effect anyone.

I used the pin tool along with the rectangle tool to create. My color choices were because I knew I wanted the cross and text dark along with the figure to give a sense of depression and the red to give a sense of pain. As an overall I am very pleased with how it came out.

Octavio Ocampo uses a process called proximity that involves taking small objects and forms and combining them to create a large (slightly abstracted) portrait that, in Octevio's case, are usually copies of master paintings. By carefully laying out these smaller objects he can form portraits with little to huge amounts of detail. He morphs things to trick the mind buy color and layering, such as, in his piece “Lilly Woman” he creates a beautiful portrait of a woman made out of paintings of flowers.
