For this revisited piece i have repainted the scientist and Frankenstein monster characters, and also tidied up the text.The original finished piece was blurry and didnt look clean and was rather murky, however with this version i have tried to bring the piece together more by tightening it up and adding as much detail as possible.

For the deadline i have repainted the punk character and also photographed the image better so more details can be seen. i think this is one of my more successful pieces because i took much more consideration about the relationships between each character within the scene. I left it to the viewer to make up there own story's about the piece. For example why is my character pulling an angry scrunched up face, why is the Sara Fanelli inspired character looking so shifty and have any of them clocked on, that the Antony Micallef character has too many cards or if the punk is attempting to cheat.

The final two editorials needed a bit more work done to them, the madness of crowds piece originally had a very similar concept to the revisited version however it also included a padlock on the cage, the lock was unnecessary and took attention away from the cards and chips. I repainted the piece using a similar style because i wanted to still have a consistent theme/style running throughout my 'editorial set'. In the piece i also added more detail to the cards and chips as the original piece was rather blurred and not detailed enough.
And finally on the ' how to write a book in 30 days' piece i kept the original typewriter image but made the paper come fly out the typewriter. This makes the image much less static and is now more interesting to look at.

This was my original rough of how i intended the basic final image to appear, i wanted to stick pretty close to how the image had been given on the brief because i dint want to over complicate the image. this quick image was put together using photos i had taken, drawings of characters and Photoshop.
I then moved the image on to a primed wooden board using carbon paper.
Next i decided to add basic layers of first watercolour and then acrylic, my reasoning behind this was because i still felt unsure on the image and also wanted to have a guide line on the tones and colours i would later apply in my layers of oil paint. I used this process on the previous project (The Social Gathering) and i found it very helpful.
After an extra layer of oil paint was applied i felt reasonably happy with the piece so i then added text and the pack shot using Photoshop. I based the text on old horror films and also typography used on album covers such as ' Cuts From The Crypt' by the band, The Misfits . I will be revisiting this project over the next few weeks to make minor adjustments.
