DANCIN' AND STAMPIN'

Dance is a cultural phenomenon that can bring everyone together no matter who they are or where they came from. Each dance has unique characteristics and flavor that make it stand out. To capture the energy and distinctness of each dance I emphasized the gestures of the figures, added splashes of vibrant colors, and chose specific clothing common in those cultures.

PROCESS

To have the figure maintain recognizability at smaller scales and stick out from the background, I thickened the contour (the outside shape) of the figure. To add energy to the piece, color was added on the figure and background. I added another gestural line behind the figure to emphasize the overall motion. Lastly, the paint splatters and type were added to bring the piece together and make it feel alive.
