chasing fall (2)

video of how i worked on this can be seen here:

the cups take anywhere from a few hours to months to draw. i draw directly on the cups itself. so theres plenty of chances for errors.

i like that risk involved, keeps things exciting.

 

the video was shot over 3 nights. i didnt want to fill the background with the same elements i am comfortable with, so i gave her a parka. but that still didnt fill up enough of the negative spaces, so paused on it for a long time.

 

i wanted everything to the right of her to represent spring. and everything on her left to indicate winter.

but drawing snowflakes was starting to prove tricky, so i sat on this for a few days.

 

my coworker suggested that i could fill it up with sunflowers, and have her represent winter. then i got home and decided i wanted to make her look like a sun flower from far, so thats where i am at with this now.

 

theres still negative space left. and i usually like that the cup has some white separation. but with this one, i want to fill it up with clutter.

this is still a work in progress.
