Selfless Portrait

For this task I came up with a few ideas, all of which I presented in form of concept arts. These were at a very early stage of development. The feedback I got was mixed, a few people liked it, and others didn’t due to the images being a bit too literal and they felt they were suffering from lack of meaning in them. After considering the feedback and skipping through all the concepts and thinking of how to approach this task I came up with a final idea for three images.
This image represents how I use music to shield away from the verbal abuse. I used ‘Beats’ earphones to represent a shield from the darkness.The hand painted Lady GaGa and Nightwish converse shoes are there to show how much I love music from these artists, all Beats earphones are ‘connected’ to the shoes. The central headphone is representing me as a person – I am inside a shield.
