the mouth is uneven...i know. there's probably a lot of problems with this drawing but i can't do anything more because it's drawn on newsprint and the paper is already at the edge of ripping, no it's not the main reason. The ONLY reason is... GOD GIVE ME A BREAK!
Dear Julius Caesar in heaven, sorry i made you look like a creepy old man. If you do smile like the way I drawn, please avoid making that expression in front of others, it's very scary to look at. Which my way to say it is: no law to see...I don't know where your hair went, blame the original sculptor who made the cast. Also, in addition, how did i get all the textures? I don't remember using a textured paper.
you want to hear the backstory? seriously?
BTW I really hate writing assignments and i'm not telling you I that use to write novels! (in Chinese)
I know no one is gonna read this but...
Alice is a typical businesswoman who puts all her heart into her work. She has been struggling with an unhappy marriage for many years. Her husband and her are always arguing, sometimes even level up into a fight. It has been two weeks since Alice last came home. Alice now lives alone in a hotel room trying to avoid her husband. One night, she accidentally discovers that her husband has been cheating on her. He and his new lover also rent a room in the same hotel. Heart broken, Alice murders her husband under the influence of alcohol. The image depicts the scene when Alice is dragging the dead body out of a hotel room.
Alice is in her nightgown, her hair is messy, and she only wears one slipper. She apparently just walks out from her room and did the murder impulsively. Part of her dress is ripped is a sign that she might have gotten into a fight. I used the darkest black for the blood to visually emphasize how horrify the murder is. I also purposely turn her back against the light to show that she is moving towards darkness or despair.
Arnold Schoenberg's "Theme and Sixth Variations from Variations for Orchestra," Op. 31
for boring explanation read the following:
When I close my eyes and think about music visually, I see the music as flowing lines in the darkness. I decide to represent Arnold Schoenberg's "Theme and Sixth Variations from Variations for Orchestra." Op. 31 with different colors of lines that intertwined with each other. Each variants of Schoenberg’s tone row is represented by a different color. The original row, which is also the main row, is represented by the golden lines that take up the majority of the space in the composition. There are twelve lines in total to indicate the twelve tones. It is the most prominent part the audiences hear throughout the music.
I use red for the retrograde of the original row and green for the retrograde inversion of the row because green and red are complementary colors. I use blue for the inversion of the original row for the same reason, blue is cooler against the warm gold. At first I try to use more saturated and extreme colors such as hot pink and dark violet, but I realize that the four variants shouldn’t be distracting each other, instead they work together as a whole. I may finish this piece of work with just the four colors, but I decide to add in the white to make the image more interesting. The white lines are used to give strength and power to the art. Indicating that the music is in motion. I imagine it as the path that the audiences travel through; the audiences are flowing along side with the music as well.
