Disculpas por escribir en inglés! Entiendo español muy bien, pero no soy buena a escribir lo.
This is my final project of the course 'Crea una infografía que hará historia'. I started this project last year but after doing the research, some of the sculptures, and getting wonderful feedback from Fernando about the layout, I had to put it on hold. I'm glad I was able to finish it now.
- Research - I talked extensively with experts, read books and journal articles, watched live ants in their nest at a lab, and looked at many reference photographs
- Background - foam board painted in acrylic and acrylic gel (sand and paper fiber)
- Primary element - the nest was sculpted with Super Sculpey and painted in acrylic and acrylic gel (sand and paper fiber)
- Secondary elements - even though I sculpted (but didn't paint) a few ants last year, when I resumed the project I decided not to use them. So all the secondary elements are a combination of graphite sketches and digital paint.
Thank you Fernando, I admire your work SO much and it is extremely generous of you to share your process in detail. I enjoyed this course tremendously and learned a lot from making the final project.
