Most of my ideas for this project involved taking a disney character and changing the way it is viewed. I decided to choose Ariel and her prince and make them have more of a hipster feel. The medium I started with was color pencil and for the background I spray painted it with dark colors to give it an edgy look. After I spray painted it the color pencil did not do justice to the characters so I added water color to give them more of a stand out look and a 3-D look. The risk I took during this project was using spray paint because I have never used spray paint before and who knows how it was going to turn out. In this piece I displayed technique, concept, emotion, and new medium. The technique was used while I was painted it, the concept was used when I was figureing out how to incorporate intertextuality into my pieve, the emotion is seen in the characters faces, and the new medium is the spray paint.
For text as element I decided to use song lyrics for my text because music is such a big part of my life. I listened to music all the times so I made the lyrics to songs as the light beams in a concert atmostphere. I decided to use a lot of different meduim choses for my piece. For the lyrics I choose sharpie so it would stand out and be colorful. For the rocking hands I used black paint so they would be the thing you looked at first. Lastly for the stage/stagelights i used watercolors so they could be seen but were in the backround. The risk I took doing this project was using water color becuase I have never used water colors on a project and if I messed up it would ruin the whole project. The message that I was trying to convey with this piece was that music is in my life and I think I did a good job with that my using the song lyrics, the rocker hands, and the stage.
