    Why couldnt you get much marks for AO2 and AO3? If you find it hard to evaluate images etc., why dont you try to find something that interests you, for example, maybe transportation, or to look at surrealist artwork on the theme?

    AO3 is easy with almost any theme - just try out using different media types-pencil, colouring pencils, paint(acrylic,poster), water colours, charcoal, chalk(on black paper), oil pastels, collages, mossaics, etc.

    Moderators have no reason to be suspicious - in the end, if your prepwork is consistant, and your final piece(which someone else surely could not copy) is related to your prepwork, then he/she has no reason to be suspicious!

    Boots, shoes trainers, not so hard!, but never mind......

    I've got many ideas, here goes

    The Zoo
    Use the David Blaine idea
    A man in a mirror
    A spirit stuck in a sayonce
    A message in a bottle
    People in a church/mosque/ senagog
    People in heaven/ hell
    A collage of signs such as Stop/No Tresspasing etc...
    Use the idea of someone telling a secret e.g someone whispering to someone a secret/ or pacing a note to someone
    Children in school
    Babies in a cot
    Animals in their habitats
    Someone smoking a ciggarete

    Hope this helps

    My friend had this amazing idea of using his own blood in his artwork. The examiners didn't like it but I'm sure any true art critics would.

    I've also got my Art gcse, in 5 weeks on the 13th and 14th May. The booklet has tons of ideas, I know it's discouraging to use one of those, but if worst comes to worst then just chose one. Or why not go tot he extreme and do something "dangerous" that isn't safely contained to be a contrast, but maybe that is a huge gamble.

    Yeah, ive got 'safely contained' aswell and im doing summat that definately isnt safe or contained, quite the opposite, hopefully they wont care though, i mean they got away with 'standing stone' in their examples in the booklet!
