For this assignment we created a 3D optical illusion. I chose my 3 favorite designs and drew them in the sections I drew. The top left and bottom right is a birds eye view of a deep hole. The top right and bottom left pop off the page and than sink into it. Than in the center I drew a sphere. The effect doesn't work unless you checker the color but I thought color would make it too busy, so I colored with a simple black and white pattern.

The goal of my mask was to make another thing, but I found that it was too hard to do so I had to improvise and I made this a golden, and silver mask right for a Pharaoh

I made this piece through lots of glue, tissue paper, and paints. I first sketched the orca, then I paited the white parts of the orca. Then I painstakingly glued each individual wad of tissue paper down. After that it was easy to put the oceanic background and fish on.
