Artists Plan: In order for me to create a mix of two different anime characters, captain america and spider-man, I had to do some research on what they looked like and how I can combine their uniform together to make a new character. I made a sketch of my first idea on how I can combine the two together. I took the suit of Spider Man, added the shield of Captain America with the spider logo on the shield instead of a star, and added a belt with stars.Even though I haven't done it in my sketch yet, the two super heroes having the same colors, red and blue, helped me out a lot since I was only working with pencil. That also helped me figure out that I wanted to do a mix between these two since it would be easier.
Artists Reflect: After finishing my sketch, I thought that i left to much empty space. To fix this problem, I cropped my image from the head to just the waist instead of the whole body. I also found that I didn't represent the two heroes evenly, so I added more of Captain America's suit to my overall artwork. Aside from the actual image, I kept wondering to myself if I was actually representing the theme. I was actually holding back a little bit until Mrs. Barnett, my art teacher, came over to my area and cleared it with me that I was on the right track since I didn't actually create these two heroes. I just used two already created people and fuse them together to make a different piece of art.
