Missing Piece by ChanpART Missing Piece by ChanpART
During the break, I had some time to touch up some pieces I worked on from a class in school called 'Altered Ego', this is one of them.

Technically what we had to do with this piece is..we were given a photo of a character and then write in a passport application for him/her as well as decide on what their interest's are, their career, and how their personal life is like. Then we create pieces throughout to tell and unfold the story of this person, their past, present and future.

My character is called Joss Kazuki, and he is a half american half japanese guy who is part of a rock band called 'black souls'. It is a band composed of 4 members, 2 guitarists, a drummer, and a singer. Joss himself is one of the two guitarists of the band. From the description I was given..it was something along the lines of [b]'your character creates and artistically works on his own cd/album covers, his most memorable one being...the one during his 1 year separation with his wife...the album cover..looks...' [/b]so with that...i created this piece.
...there will be more posted later on to unfold the whole story of this character.

So heres the CD album cover i painted...(here is a link to the actual cd cover design [link]) as 'Joss Kazuki' haha..i tried to show the dark world he lives in and the missing piece of the puzzle in his life during the time when his wife left him. There are some writing and possibly hidden messages in this piece.

This piece was done with acrylics, inks, and...alcohol..i mean.. haha japanese sake..as i was drinking it.. i wanted to see the effects of it with ink, lol. Finished in Illustrator and Photoshop.

PS. My friend :iconx-chan-: also did a piece for this class...check out hers too XD [link]
