Since today’s Huevember’s prompt is yellowish (plus no mandarin orange markers for me), it seems that it could be fitting for me to drawing more yellowish subjects, namely TFA Bumblebee. This time instead of a simple frame, he is in a design mixed between Art Deco and Art Nouveau.
I had been fascinated with both art styles for a while, particularly the shapes and composition. While both of them seem as different as night and day, I tried an experiment to see if I could mix them both. I mainly based the Art Deco part from a google image I found, and I designed the Art Nouveau patterns based on the stylized look of a bee. I am still very inexperienced about both design.
I did plan out several composition, including a circular framing. Ultimately I opt for angular frame, with some “circuits” thrown in.
I tried to write his name in Art Deco style. Ultimately calligraphy and lettering is out of my league, and the design seem a bit amateurish. Hope I could get better in this.
I start drawing the sketch once I return home from an outside lunch, and I was rushing for the black background when I had to leave early for a gallery visit. After I returned, I spent time filling in the colours. It look pretty good insofar.
(Plus note, the gallery visit involve visiting an isolated clean gallery in the middle of a dilapidated city area, which is fascinating already. I arrived early, so I visit an exhibition nearby before moving on the designated exhibition. I had took photos for record)
