My illustrations for my Animation

Here are some of my illustrations i have been working on that relate to the words that are in the first paragraph of the song Role model by Eminem.

"Ok, I'm going to attempt to drown myself,
you can try this at home,
you can be just like me"
" I strangled you to death till i choked you again
Then break your f****** legs till your bones poke through your skin,
you beef with me, I'ma even the score equally
Take you on Jerry springer and beat your ass legally"
"So if i said i never did drugs
That would mean i lie AND get f***** more than the president does
Hillary clinton tried to slap me and call me a pervert
I ripped her f***** tonsils out and fed her sherbert"
"Follow me and do exactly what the song says
Smoke weed, take pills, drop out of school, kill people and drink
And jump behind the wheel like it was still legal,
I'm dumb enough to walk into a store and steal
so I'm dumbe enough to ask for a date with Lauryn hill"
"Some people only see that I'm white, ignoring skill
Cause i stand out like a green hat with an orange bill"
" But i don't get pissed, y'all don't see through the mist
How the f*** can i be white, i don't even exist"
" I getta clean shave, Bathe, go to a rave
Die from an overdose, then dig myself up outa my grave"
" My middle finger won't go down, How do i wave
And this is how I'm supposed to teach kid's how to behave"

After uploading all these images to my computer i will add certain effects to the colour to give it a more pop art comic theme, which would compliment my images perfectly. Also im going to be cutting out certain parts so that i can animate them on After Effects.

Second poster finished

The message behind this poster is that fans and the papers can be a problem when being a celebrity and in this song Eminem is expressing his feeling about how people keep interupting his day with his family and also himself.
This would look good in a shop window and so would my other poster, but what theme could i give these two posters that would seem relevant for Diesel as a brand.

mock up of my second poster

The way i am poster is mainly going to be occupied on eminem as a celebrity, so i have done loads of fingers and hand pointing at him and also a camera pointing at him with a speech bubble saying leave me alone.

This is an initial layout that im going to give this poster, i have put the hands infront of him because of the attention that he gets is relatively in his face so this poster has give the impression of being bombarded with fans.
This is another idea of the type thats going to be in the speech bubble, i think the words im using are very bold and also straight forward which also reflects on his attitude.

Images that work with the genre of this poster

Because the idea of the poster is about the fans and the press consistantly taking photos and mocking Eminem, im going to do some illustrations of cameras, hands pointing and news papers on the floor with his face on the paper. Heres a few images that i want to incorporate into my Advertisement.

These are photos of different angles of my hand so i can get a good idea of the shape and creases in the hand that would be relevant for peoples hands pointing at him.
This is just a close up of the hands that i was tracing over in illustrator in order to vectorize the image.

I wanted to do all different shade of skin colour in order to not depict out just one race but with all races so it doesn't relate to racism or leaving out anybody, because i would imagine that his fans are of all ethnicities.

next poster ( The way i am)

When listening to this song this give me a real feeling of not being left alone due to the fact that one of his lyrics say that people wont leave him alone when hes feeding his child. I can understand that this would be a big problem especially when your trying to hold a family together without being mithered by the press and fans.
Heres a picture i drew of Eminem but with more of an angry face to reflect on how he feels abut the situation.
As you can see i still want to keep the same kind of style and now i want to vectorize this image to produce a more digitalized image to work within an advertisement, which would also communicate better with my target audience which is anybody between the age of 16-30.

Giving Eminem this dark aura gives the image more attitude and shows the darker side of his emotions towards people who consistantly pick at him in the streets while he's doing his own thing.

finalised poster for Role model

After i finished this piece i realised that the style does suit the style of music that Eminem sings. Relating music and art together brings out feeling in work and i feel that i have achieved this to a good standard. The whole idea of the poster is that being a child we learn off the people who we look up to and sometimes that isn't a good thing due to some parents or Role models aren't what people see them to be, and this is what Eminem was trying to get across to his fans.

As you can see i wanted to give the faces a boarder to represent the style of a comic book, which i will be doing alot more, especially on my animation which will be on the same song and will also be moving to the lyrics that will be said. This is called interactive animation, Just like the video of Watchmen which has the potential to be an application on an ipod for music enthusiasts.
