This picture was made for a challenge for the group Breaking the Boundaries. The only portal experience that I know about is the one in the movie, “Being John Malkovich”. I’ve heard about them and of course “Alice In Wonderland” going through the looking glass.
The portal in my picture is loosely based on the Malkovich movie. The portal in the movie was found at work and so is mine but it takes you away from reality to a place to have fun instead of another person’s body and being them which is the idea I liked better but was a little more difficult to convey visually for me
I don’t really like the idea of a portal. Being bodily maneuvered into a different place. I like to use my mind instead.
When it came time actually to come up with an idea and make it look like a transformation was happening I made one failed attempt after another. I finally settled into this which kept working until I was done. So this is my best attempt.
