Summer Project #15 – Montage

Have been working on this montage for a while, and I’m quite liking this version. Perhaps it still needs a bit more adjusting? I don’t know.. any opinions on it would be greatly appreciated! I think that I’m going to aim to produce a professional looking article for my final piece and this could be the image used to introduce the article… maybes…



Summer Project #14 – Layers Development

Trying different ways to put the tonal layer and the line layer together in ways that make the dog images look clear yet slightly ghostly, if I can….. here are 3 different looks that I quite like. Not quite sure if it will be in colour or black and white yet either, but I think my favourite one is the last one:

Summer Project #13 – Outlines

Just beavering away on the same idea as before, the posts are mounting up now and I’ve only got a couple of weeks left to finish this project… eek. Anyway these are the line drawings to be layered up with the tonal doggie drawings:

Summer Project #12 – Charcoal Dogs

Experimenting with different materials lead to me deciding to experiment with layering a tonal drawing with a line one as I think it shows a bit of a transparency that I like. These first 4 drawings show my rediscovered love for charcoal pencils:

Summer Project #11 – Crowded Dogs

Developing the idea of crowded, packed in dogs in rescue homes. Below is a fine line and pencil drawn montage of doggies. Think it’s allllright, could be more striking though. Also think dogs need to look more ghostly than cartoony

Also tried this little one, using Battersea Dogs Home building as it is the source of everything that has come to light in the media.
