As an update from the previous post ‘Lizards are politicians?’… I have finished the poster!
I don’t like it, but here it is:
Quite different to what I showed you in the previous post!
I wanted to make the tie more tie shaped, so I lengthened it and changed the shape of the collar too using a photo I took for my 365 (Corrr, back in the day! At least its coming in handy)
I hand cut loads of triangles to form the letters and give a lizard skin feel…
This took FOREVER and I’m disappointed because it doesn’t even look that good! 🙁 I have damaged my fingers… can’t feel the tips of 2 fingers and my thumb! So that is not good… 🙁
I got the idea from seeing these amazing ‘Papercut portraits’ by Kyle Letendre
I used black and green paint and a sponge to create a background and layered it underneath the poster. I used a clip on badge to give it a unique/quirky/3D/interactive effect and finish it off.
Overall, not amazingly proud or happy and so pretty nervous about tomorrow’s review with Brain! Eeeeek! 🙁
