my final pieces for the ‘Adaptations’ Brief
These are photographs of two paper-crafts
I have chosen two different lyrics, from two different songs by the same band, from the same album (City of Evil by Avenged Sevenfold) to adapt and I have combined these lyrics with two different classic Disney characters who I feel correspond well with the lyrics.
The first is the villain, Scar, from The Lion King, and the lyric I have paired him with is ‘Hatred fuels my blood, I’ll burn you down. One king to watch the horsemen fall’ from the song Burn it down, and I have surrounded him with flames as he kills his brother, the king, in the flames to gain the throne and out of jealousy and hatred, and he ends up in the flames himself, at the end of the film. The part about the Horsemen relates to how he commands the hyenas like an army and how he watches the lionesses he is king of suffering and dying of starvation because of his poor leadership.
The second paper-craft is of the Beast, from the Disney film Beauty and the Beast, and the lyric I have chosen is ‘He who makes a beast out of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man’ from the song Bat Country. This lyric is actually quoted from a film, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, based on a book of the same name, but the author took this quote from an 18th century author so this has been adapted many times. I felt it went well with the beast as a character as the beast is only in the situation that he is in (a man in the form of a beast, isolated from society) because of his own selfishness. I made him look more scary by adding more, sharper, bloodstained teeth, bigger horns and wilder fur and I have surrounded him by the roses and their stems as it is an important feature of the film- the rose alone holds the key to this redemption.
I’m really pleased with the level of detail I managed to achieve with these pieces =3
