One of my biggest aims for the PPP module was to develop my existing skills in order to improve the quality of my work. The images above are of a piece of work submitted to the COP 3 module where i have improved my skills greatly. I wanted to work in a more realistic way that was still illustrative. I have previously worked in a more cartoon esque style which i like but i thought i should try something a bit different. I am really pleased with the result of this. Using the thinner thread in a variety of red tones has meant that the colours fade into one and other almost seemlessly giving a more life like finish.
Prior to this piece i experimented with a variety of different colours and thread – images below. The images below all use a thicker thread- and although there is some colour fading there it’s definitely not as effective as the thinner thread, whcih i think i will use for future works where i want to utilise this technique.
