Hilary’s new project (well, I say new… we’ve had 3 weeks on it now) is that we’ve chosen an advert from her selection and have to reproduce it as accurately as we can. It’s all about attention to detail; every colour, every line and every stroke of a brush should match up!
I chose the Vera Wang Truly Pink advert mainly because I liked it… and because I didn’t think it would be as difficult as some of the other options (including very minimalist and sharp adverts by designers such as Chanel and D&G) but I have proved Julius right (he said I would be crazy to pick it because it would be really hard) and am now regretting it a bit. The colour is just so hard to match, especially with all the light on the rose petals etc
And anyway, I still love the advert even if I hate it 🙂
Update 23.02.09 – Its 22.17pm the night before the deadline of this project…. and this is what I have…
Excuse the poor photography AS PER USUAL, no flash on camera, accetate reflection, light reflection etc etc
But, arrgh, the background is just not enough/right! 🙁
Update 23.02.09 – Its now 23.16pm…. and Im a little bit happier I think. I re-traced the background AGAIN but onto white tissue paper … and its still not right, but I think it’s a step closer at least?
