Sorry, but do I understand the theme properly?

“Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing - an idea or an animal - is given human attributes.”

You can try search google images of personification. Some results can help you better with the understanding - and ideas. :slight_smile:

Thank you, Man!
The theme is very cool!
I will try my best again! :metal::sunglasses:

Personification is the way you see yourself its more or less like art done by different people like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Vincent vango and so on they all had different point of views and different styles

My English not very good and I’m sorry if I don’t understand properly what you saying, but how I understand your words - you talk more about style, something like personality and selfexpression in art.
But personification is the thing when you gave personality to object, which can not have it at all.
Like “fire dancing” or “sky is crying” or "wind is whispering ".
They can’t do that litteraly, but our mind and imagination can see that things in that way.
And that is how I understand the topic. :slightly_smiling_face:

P.S. Funny example that come to my mind:
When Blender accidentaly crashing and you talk with him, like “Oh, Man, come on! Please, not now!”
You do personification, like Blender is Dude who decide to go to sleep at that moment. :joy:
Maybe stupid example. :sweat_smile:
Don’t forget to save your work! :slightly_smiling_face:

Reminded me of the anthropomorphism theme we did.


The image search brought back two ideas for me. Firstly the literary device of “personification”, so I thought one can creatively construct a image on an expression like “the clouds are crying”.

The second idea is basically “Disney” like anthropomorphism like @joshwinkler3d mentioned. Not only animals, but stuff like “Cars”, “Planes” or “Thomas The Tank Engine”. Funnily enough an image search of personification and anthropomorphism displayed the same teapot, clock and candle holder from “Beauty and the Beast”.

Essentially it’s about creativity and doing whatever you believe the theme is about for you.

Wiktionary also has a few nice definitions and examples, which allow a lot of very unique entries. :slight_smile:

Adolf Hitler was the personification of anti-Semitism.

  1. A literary device in which an inanimate object or an idea is given human qualities.

The writer used personification to convey her ideas.

  1. An artistic representation of an abstract quality as a human

That’s good for a scary movie. I think I can’t sleep in that bed afraid it will eat me. :grin:


Subject to change, but I’m currently going a more literal approach. I am looking at making the circle cutout more like hand-drawn.
