Here is the latest project sketch for my class.
It's a landscape based around shapes we cut out of a magazine. My shapes were tall skinny things with rounded tops and round things with ridges.
So, the buildings are based on a tall zippo lighter, an eyeshadow pencil, microphone stand, fence post, shovel, and the top of a gazebo. The spaceshipy part is based on a overhead shot of a botanical garden, and the landscape behind is based on a muffin top.
We'll see how this goes.
