Art 1 Fairy Tale

Art 1

In two short paragraphs explain your fairy tale recreation. In the first, explain how you have changed your character physically and how you have changed the setting of the scene through time or location. In the second paragraph, critique your time with the acrylic paint. What were some challenges that you faced? Did you enjoy painting? What other media would you have rather used instead?

  1. I painted The Happy Mask Salesman from "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask". In the original work he was depicted as a middle aged traveler selling masks off his back. In my rendition I changed the setting to a modern dark ally in the city. I also changed his cloths and which masks he sells.

    I've had a little bit of experience with painting but this piece had smaller areas that I had to cover, and I didn't help that I only used a couple of brushes but that's my fault. With painting you really have to think about what the color is supposed to look like and the tone of it. The skin color was one of the hardest things to get right in this painting. I would say painting is one of the harder art mediums because you not only have to worry about color but things like brush strokes, layers, and paint thickness. I prefer pencil because I have more practice with it and I find the simplicity attracting.

  3. In my painting I put cinderella in the 80's. I put her in a diner and in the waitress outfit even with the rollerblades. I changed her physical appearance by making her african american with long, brown, curly hair.

    Some challenges I faced were that all the colors I needed weren't in acrylic paint. I didn't really enjoy painting because I didn't have any time and it looked bad. I don't know what other media I would have used but I know that I would have spent less time on the drawing and gave myself more time to paint. Especially because I just covered up almost everything I drew with the paint.
