Internet Woes 3
INTERNET WOES IS A SERIES BY JESSICA ROONEY DEANE ABOUT THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF MODERN LIFE ONLINE.
It will be published fortnightly on Fridays, and can be viewed from the beginning here on the Internet Woes page.
This week I started off the piece as usual and sketched out the way I wanted it to look. I then started with the face as it was going to be the easiest piece to make and then I could size the laptop and all the other pieces around it. After I finished cutting out the shape of the face, I then started on the shape of the hair as I wanted it to be seen near the front of the face to make it stand out more. I then made the little finger at the bottom and painted the nail with coral nail varnish to make it seem like a real finger. I then finished off the face by adding the lips and teeth, and drawing on the eye and nose details. After I was finished making the laptop and table, I photographed the piece and started to edit it on my laptop. I wanted the laptop screen to be as real as possible, while also keeping the paper effect, so i added the email text digitally, and added a digital mouse icon. After that I added in the screensaver background to give it a more digital feel. Finally I framed it and added the hand written text for the speech and title of the piece.
