Help with my art homework?

  1. chloep123 Member Member

    Hiya guys!

    So I was wondering, as your all fish lovers like me, do you have any ideas for my art project? We have to create 30 pieces and, me being stupid, left 20 till now, and considering its due in Thursday, I need some ideas... It has to be focused around the theme of fish but I am really struggling for inspiration. Abstract, classic, cartoon, I don't really mind what! Any ideas much appreciated!

    (That's the current 10, ranging from pencil, pen, watercolours and oil pastels.)

    Maybe Flowingfins or Mcasella or BlackNotebookTanks will help? I know you guys are arty...

    Find fish movies, like finding nemo/dory and base pictures off of the characters. Can the art pieces have scenery include? If that is the case you can I do a fish peeking out of a log/cave. Or one chasing a piece of food. Draw how your fish interact with each other? You can do abstract like yin and yang fish, one each of them separate looking lonely then one of them together and happy?

    On the yin and yang you can do it on black paper with white crayon or paint market so it is easier?

    Hahahahah oh my god I love the fish tank one These are like dad level puns #pungametoostrong. Mcasella is right, try finding as much reference as possible as quickly as possible. Try doing quick sketches of different species of fish, some in pen, some pencil, and some colour. This should give you a few more pieces. Oh then draw some fish being caught or something related to fishing. Maybe go abstract and paint a page blue, adding triangles of colour for fish? Its morning and I haven't had any porridge - sorry for my weird ideas
