That’s right, ladies and gentleman…
The second installment of Snapchats of the Week is here! I know you have all been eagerly waiting on the edge of your seats to see what crazy and hilarious snapchats would be showcased next, but wait no more! The collection of snapchats coming up are artistic, beauteous, inspiring, creative…. in other words, these are Snapsterpieces. But don’t thank me! Thank your fellow classmates for taking extensive time out of their day to create these awe-inspiring and laugh-inducing works of art. Without further ado… Snapchats of the Week: Snapsterpiece edition!
Now, everyone has seen a Snapchat of a dog. Big deal. But what we have here is a true work of art by Caroline Pollard, with the precious pooch perched gracefully atop a majestic rainbow. With dogs, rainbows, and beautiful blue skies, you really can’t go wrong.
Jackson Negus has decided to keep it tasteful in this snapsterpiece. Many think caked-on layers of makeup at a high school age is simply inappropriate and unattractive, so Jackson went for a more ‘natural’ look. With rosy cheeks and a seductive stare, Jackson’s artwork is sure to get him a lot of attention. This snapsterpiece is versatile in that it not only amuses and entertains, but also gives us a quick makeup lesson!
Zak Mai asks an important question as he whips up a unique, beautiful snapsterpiece. The artist has shunned the average saturated colors in favor of more subtle and neutral tones, creating a portrait of depth and contour. What speaks to me the most in this piece, however, are the eyes. The un-symmetrical, flat brown pupils are truly windows to the soul of this picture, entrancing the viewer. This abstract work is nothing short of flawless… and of course, the eyebrows are on fleek.
Now, I may be tooting my own horn here, but I think this snapsterpiece is full of dynamic energy. The powerful, pearly-white jaws and glowing orange eyes of the shark are offset by the raging, swirling blue sea. Of course, the artwork portrays a dangerous situation, making it that much more interesting and exciting. Not to be forgotten, the caption is a relevant cry for help as exams approach.
The lesser-known cousin of Napoleon Bonaparte, Napoleon Snapsaparte can be found roaming the halls of Collegiate rallying support through raucous song and boisterous yelling. This fine piece not only depicts Snapsaparte in a regal, royal pose, but also embellished in his finest garb. The artfully crafted headgear is truly the icing on the cake for this Snapsterpiece, submitted by Sarah Smithson.
Bonus: Combo Snapsterpieces
These works of art combine our theme from last week (which was creepy) with magnificent artistic talent.
Claire Golladay’s snapsterpiece, while beautiful, also scares viewers slightly. The amount of time that must have been put into this heart-rendering, soulful piece is astounding (perhaps a reason that she does not have any time for play). While the artist’s skillful color blending and shading make the piece stand out, its once again the magnificent eyes that give life to the piece. Almost hypnotic…almost a little TOO real.
The contouring, the masterful use of colors, the creepy eyes…the scary smirk… Okay, let’s just not look at this one any more than we have to. While it is a very, very well drawn snapsterpiece, Kyra Gregory has truly outdone herself in the ‘terrifying’ department. Feel free to scroll down at this point.
And that concludes this edition of Snapchats of the Week! Hopefully you enjoyed that little trip down a virtual art gallery, and appreciated all of the masterful works created by your peers. Next time, we will be displaying Best Snapchat Outfits, so send us your snapchats with funny, creative, or unusual clothing/costumes you have drawn on yourself (or others, with their permission).
