Are positive and negative drawing irrelephant?
Our first project all year
I think it turned out "Okay". I was really able to make sure i used my contour to help find where to use negative space around the index finger and thumb.
This is one of my favorite pieces. It looks exactly like only thing that is not my favorite is the hair towar the end it was just an awkward transformation.
Stippling is all value and pattern. Getting a rhythm for the dots took a long time. I wish I would have drawn it out more and tried different practice patternes and been more balanced in gradually going from dark to light or vise versa.
I valued all my time to attempt this one.
Hold still this might take a while. In our case one whole week.
Not my favorite but a good technique and perfect timing for understanding shadows and depth perception. Balance for shadows was hard. There was so much going on and I would have taken this back and would have focused on one specific point and used better texture and form.
Texture in the fur to show that it was soft and fluffy depended on how light I scratched my board. The lighter the light the more fur or more valued. In the face it's almost all white because the face was bare and I tried to show where the fur started to come in. Should have been more gradual.
Vanishing point is crazy hard and confusing but turns out cool. You use the points to perportions right.
"But first let me take a selfie"
Size and location is what a self portrait is. I learned so many techniques. There are 5 eyes across the face. Everything lines is with the eyes fro the most part and you get to focus on yourself and how beautiful you are and this the the piece I am most proud of.
I usually only use ribbon for my hair.
Shadows are hard and to be perfectly honest I could have done better if I would have used more values in how the ribbon snapped the letters.
In life I will come arcos a lot of challenges. I will always want to change and fix my pieces but any art piece is never finished. There is always something to improve on. What I wanna continue to focus on is being more exact with texture. I know there is a lot to it and I get lazy and I hope to change that and next time I should do the hair upside down and try it. I can't wait to see what art class will take me next.
