Creating modern art by Synfull Creating modern art by Synfull
This is my entry into the First round of =Web5teR's contest on the theme of 'modern'.

This round of the contest was split into two groups, with each group having a different theme. Whilst others were tasked to make a 'retro' emote, my theme was 'modern'. Thinking of places the word 'modern' is used, modern art immediately came to mind. A quick search through the modernism wikipedia page brought up this famous painting by Piet Mondrian, which I used as the base for my entry.

The black lines gave ideal places for the emotes to sit and after bouncing some ideas around I decided they could paint the coloured areas. As my normal dithering style wouldn't really work on something which was meant to be a painting, I used a texture to prevent the coloured patches being blocks of one colour.

I feel there are some places this could be improved, and some slight animation will probably work well, but the deadline is nearing and I want to make sure I get an entry in.

This emote also counts as my 3rd entry for #NaNoEmo

And then when the red is dry, everyone goes on the red and paints from there......





Had to say that O_o Besides, there isn't any other place to stand on to paint the white parts.

I hope you win~ I've actually seen another entry but for "retro" I think.... I love how this is a picture but they're painting over it, I just love the effect :D Maybe it's because I'm a nerd lol

:giggle: I love how this week's Wednesday class happened to be about De Stijl, which included artwork of Piet Mondrian, and now this! Excellent depiction of the theme and execution of art, too.
