a collection of work by 1st and 2nd semester sophomores
Toothbrushes and toothpaste very interesting idea of human emotion. Oh dear lord they are having sex in the background. I don't know if it is necessary to have people having sex in the shower.. It makes me think that the tooth brushes are copying the humans.
I like the colors you chose for this piece a lot. I think that the sad toothpaste confuses me a little but, because I'm not sure how that would play into a Valentine's Day card. Unless it was a rejection card, or about being single maybe? I just think that he may not be necessary to the piece. However, nicely rendered!
your handling of paint is really nice! I'd say pay attention to the faucet because the shape of it is getting kind of wonky. Also make sure the toothbrushes look like they're inside of the jar with some sort of shine or color difference :)
The sad toothpaste isn't giving me the same Valentine's Day vibe as the toothbrushes and the (presumed) couple in the shower.I really appreciate the predominate use of earthy and cool colors with the small areas of pinks. It makes for a dynamic composition that ties its separate elements together.
I laughed when I first saw this, but I was also a little confused. I'm not sure if the sad toothbrush adds to the Valentines card quality you're trying to achieve. But your rendering is really nice in this piece.
It is really funny idea, I kind of feel bad for toothpaste. I also think you should not include two figures at the background. There is already many things that is being said from the actions of toothbrushes and facial expression of toothpaste. This is really nit picky thing but the perspective of the toilet is wrong. It looks like we are looking at the rug and sink from top, but it looks like we are looking at the toilet from side.
I think the perspective is really funny and clever. the expression on toothpaste is very funny and hilarious too! I wish the rendering wasn't so flat and objects in the foreground have more dimension.
At first I was like 'oh my' and then I was like 'OH MY!'This is an awesome piece of artwork, just because: toothpaste.I don't have anything else I want to fix, maybe just little details like the faucet and how it's gone in the mirror...And overall, this is beautiful. :') I don't care if other people don't think this is romantic.
This is a hilarious illustration the toothbrush giving each other tongue and the toothpaste looking desperately sad is a great commentary of couples and singles. I however think the background and the shower conflicts with your main focus and draws my eye a little to much. but otherwise a very witty illustration.
That is really unexpected. I am laughed out at first because of two tooth brushes. I like your concept but I am wonder that I feel more "teasing" than "romantic love". Also about the background: couple are having sex in the shower room.... I am not sure that is nessasery because I see "love" enough from tooth brushes.
This piece is hilarious. I love it. It's really cute and not something I'd think of initially when we got the assignment. The paint is applied nicely and the colors are playful. Just to reiterate something someone else said in a different comment, that faucet it looking a little off. Give it some more shine and shadows to make it rounder to and a little less flat. Overall though, I love this. It's great.
I wish you had just focused on the toothbrushes and the tooth paste because those characters seem to be the center of the piece where most of the action is set around. With that being said I think the whole interaction between the tooth brushes and the toothpaste is hilarious and the way you used colors and perspective adds to this.
When I first saw this, it was funny and creepy at the same time. Two toothbrushes being smoochy and the people in the shower.. I feel bad for the toothpaste though. At first I thought it was just one person in the shower but it couldn't be possible that the hands and feet could be positioned in that way. Maybe showing the figures a little more would help make sense. As with the theme, I see this more of a 'stop this lovey dove stuff' than a Valentine. I think it's because the toothpaste looks like it is in the spotlight.
Haha, this piece is so hilarious. If the people in the background are having sex than I can see the relationship between them and the toothbrushes. The shower part is a little confusing however, I'm not sure if their bodies actually go that way. But over all I like the colors and I feel bad for the toothpaste.
I love the clever humor in this piece! It seems to me to poke fun at how seriously we treat Vday and sex on Vday, when in reality there are more people complaining on Valentine's Day than enjoying it. I'm not sure if this fits the assignment of describing love. But I would surely let it pass, theres such a market for this type of card! My one awkward criticism is that if that bulge (which may be true to life, but now is part of a character) isn't the toothpaste's pleading hands, then its something else...
I like the color scheme of the piece. I also like how you included many of the same colors in the glass.The figure in the background is distracting me from the main focus, which are the tooth brushes. I feel like the two parts are competing for attention.Maybe you could've included less of the mirror and instead zoomed in on the brushes.
Funny but also gross- Love the facial expression of the lonely tube. Interesting idea. The background it a little confusing.
Well… thats the first time THIS image has been submitted for this assignment ;) No, but really-- I agree with Ying-- i liked the experience of the 1, 2, 3 punch with all the different layers. Definitely made it an interesting piece to move around. On the flip side, I think it would be stronger, overall, if it was just the toothbrushes. There's already so much intimacy with toothbrushes (actually-- if you think about it, whoa, maybe too much) that they do a good enough job of holding their own. The sad toothpaste made me laugh, but i agree he's distracting from the valentine-ness of it all. And the couple in the back is, i think, too obvious and distracting. you did a great job with developing the toothbrushes, why take away from them? if it were my piece, i'd zoom in, strip down all the unnecessary extras, soften the focus on the rest of the stuff and paint the heck out of some beautiful co-mingling toothbrushes… probably without faces even, actually, because that would elevate the tone of the piece and make it more broadly marketable.
I really laughed when I finally saw this piece. They way that you ran with the mixed media payed off in creating this different planes in the space. Playing with all of the different colors also played to your benefit. I feel bad for suggesting the shower scene, but it's just so humorous to me. A super minor but nit-picky, one of the toothbrushes is bumping right up against the mirror. But all I have left to say is: oh my goodness.
I think this illustration has a lot of things to see which is interesting. I like the perspective of seeing situation on the other side in the mirror.well..its impressive to see toothbrushes are kissing and toothpaste looks so lonely...
