APAC01_Turn on the light by Aureta APAC01_Turn on the light by Aureta
First real artwork of 2013~ I'm kind of late, but how's the new year, guys? haha..
This is the first piece for my AP art exam/concentration. My basic theme is idioms. Can you guess this one? For the first piece I meant to keep it pretty basic.
--

Expect some more realistic/semi-realistic pieces for the next three months to come; for this portfolio I'm going to have to keep away from my usual (?) style. I mean, it's still pretty much me, but as far as faces go I'm not quite sure.

I'm taking some major inspiration for `AquaSixio and *sandara for this period, but not like in a copying manner but that I'm hoping to reach some of `AquaSixio's depth and randomness of concepts and *sandara's illustration-like compositions. (*sandara also happens to be the example for this category in the submit page xD) I'm considering using Feng Zhu as an inspiration but I doubt I'll be producing anything at that level =.=

I'm about to get my butt kicked in the next few months-- this portfolio requires one piece per week, and frankly I don't think I've worked at that speed yet (and they expect me to make good quality stuff in such as short time, pfft. But then again, I managed to do this, so...)

My submissions have become my new journals...

Wish me luck guys, and I wish you guys a great year!

From one AP student to another:

Please check with your Art teacher to make sure you can post your pieces online. I'm pretty sure that there are rules saying that if you wish to submit your artwork to the College board then you can't post it online beforehand on websites such as dA. I might be wrong but just to be on the safe side you know :/

Gorgeous picture and concept though o:

I'll have to see... I've scoured the entire AP website and I haven't found anything on it..
Then again, there's a ton of obscure rules they never state clearly x( Like how you're not allowed to sign works...

I'll be really careful about it, and worst comes to worst I'll delete everything when the time comes.

This is gorgeous..! The lighting is really well done here, and the detail and thinness of the spiderweb looks very nice..! I like how you did the folds on the shirt too, and added mroe depth with the deeper shadows from the box ///

Why thank you// I'm rather surprised with how good the outcome was; my mom even asked if I had taken a photo to reference, which I didn't. And that's probably the biggest compliment I've ever gotten from her (not that' she's unappreciative, but that she knows absolute zero about art)
