This is my progress for my collage piece:

Huggins (1)

I wanted to hide the classroom in the original photograph, so I added a vignette and lots of contrast.


Here I started cutting out pieces for my composition and started adding them where I could.


I wanted this piece to be a bit “humorous”, so I replaced his face with a Jack Skellington head, as seen here.

Collage-3I repositioned a few things, most noticeably the small guitar, and I recolored the Motionless in White logo so that it wouldn’t be lost in the background. I started playing around with the police tape and added it to his arm so that it looks like he is wearing it. IĀ didn’t want the tape to be so opaque so I toned it down as I got to the edges of his arm.

I noticed something was missing, but couldn’t figure out what…

Collage-4In the end, I came up with this. It’s not as in-your-face as I wanted it to be, but I like how it turned out. I added guitar picks to the left because I didn’t want the composition to be very right-heavy. I wanted a more centralized composition.
