VAPORWAVE!?!?!

Hey everyone as you all already know our assignment this week was to create our own vapor-wave. To be quite honest I had a hard time doing so, but you must never give up. So finally after a long long long time I figured it out. Although some of the work on my vapor-wave is typically seen throughout other vapor-waves. I decided to add my favorite athletes to my vapor-wave to make it seem different from others. I also found it quite cool and funny to add the censor sign and the class name on the female roman statues.

Trying my hand at Vapor-wave!

Hey everyone – it’s been a while since my last post! Since everyone’s been sharing their Vapor-wave projects (and they look awesome) I figured I reveal what I’ve been working on within the same medium. This is Vapor-wave through the eyes of Brandon Bradley!

I have to admit that this was a weird project for me in terms of material and thematic references, but I believe that I made it work to my advantage. Unlike some of the other projects I saw, I decided not to include a high variety of assets as the focus of this piece. I wanted to include a lot of sci-fi, comic book references simply because I’m down for the nerd culture everyday, all day! It’s a movement and I’ll always be happy to contribute to the cause. I don’t want to give away too much, but I want you guys to take a good look at my image and see if you can name any of the references I included. There are some high profile themes in this piece so don’t hesitate to leave a comment and tell me what you think! (I’ll give you a hint: The guy in the red tights has amazing speed and the Speed Force is unusually strong with him.)

I also realized how much I enjoy utilizing perspective to my advantage as well because I always want to create a sense of believability in my work. Not just with digital projects, but with traditional materials as well. It’s an incredible useful tool when working on art! As for Vapor-wave, there are some kinks that I want to work out, but I’m definitely gonna keep hammering at it until it feels natural.

With that being said – I hope you guys have a blessed day and I’ll see you on the web!

~Vaporwave~

Hey class! This week’s assignment really allowed us to dig into our creativity. Vaporwave is something I’ve seen around the internet but never even knew there was a name for it. Surprisingly, (FUN FACT!!) this has been around since the early 2010s. It is truly something that needs more recognition. I was really excited to work on this project. I was unable to finish it in class so I had to complete it at home. I do not have photoshop but I was able to use a really helpful website called https://www.photopea.com/. You all should check it out. It is a great FREE alternative from photoshop! It also lets you open your .PSD files from class. It makes it 100% easier to complete your work from the comfort of your own home! 

Anyways, my vaporwave is dedicated to CT101. I plan on making more vaporwave because it has fascinated me so much!
