Swimming in Hats: De Bono’s Guide to Argument and how it relates to mermaids I guess?

My mentor and I had a discussion about what we’ve worked on so far, and what I have yet to learn before I can accomplish the tasks I have laid out for myself on InDepth Night (the bolded text is the colour of the hat):

Kylee: So we’ve touched on basic character styles, bruise tones, what do you want to work on next?

Olivia: I was thinking something more fantasy-based, something that uses more creativity?

Kylee: That sounds good but at some point we should move on to some prosthetic looks cause those might take a while to learn based on how finicky they can be.

Olivia: I am so looking forward to that!  I know you’re not feeling very well right now though so I feel like we should wait till we have more time to spend together to start on that.

Kylee: Cool.  What kind of fantasy look were you thinking?

Olivia: Well I still have your bruise tone kit, so hopefully something I can accomplish with that and what I already have at home.  Any thoughts?

Kylee: I’d love to show you how to do this one look I saw on Youtube, it only uses cool tones like the ones in the palette, but it’ll be a bit of trial and error as I’ve never tried it.  Do you think we can risk it?

Olivia: Yo that looks pretty wild, let’s do it!

Now just to catch you up with the plan, we have plans to start a prosthetic look as soon as Ky is feeling better, but in the meantime we plan to work on a Maleficent and/or dying Bella look that uses contour to drastically change the apparent shape of the face.  Super stoked as very soon I will get to work on some models!!!  Be sure to check out my Tumblr, but here’s a look I’m pretty proud of!

  1. Very creative way to incorporate De Bono’s concepts and analysis in your post. Start thinking how you would like to “display” your learning at in-depth night. I would like to suggest that you “wear” a look, walking around the MPR and answering questions from the audience. What goals are you going to be working for the remainder of the project?
