Color Theory/Spirit Animal Trophy

Choose an animal which personifies you best. You will be creating a 3D bust of the animal to be
hung on the wall. Make two drafts of the animal (frontal and side view). You should abstract,
exaggerate, manipulate the animal in order to get a design​ that is desired. Texture will be
created through repetition and patterning of simple shapes layered onto one another. Mood will
be created through use of symbolic color (Color theory). You may only use Analogous colors. If
your animal has more than one distinct color you may choose another set of analogous colors to
create contrast. Must be minimum of 4” deep x 12” length x12” width.
Research​ decorative patterns in nature and various cultures for inspiration. Post all
inspiration, research and in progress images to blog!

In class we discussed how to build a 3D armature from your 2D front and side scoring and finger joint techniques- also google search cardboard armature for more reference to construction if needed. I left some cardboard in one of the upright cubbies. Feel free to use it!
view drafts. Here is a reminder of the scoring and finger joint techniques

finger joints<scoring to bend<tape used to create seams between cut forms, adding volume.

have fun!
