Oh the places we will go

For this project I used both water color and pen. I used stippling with the pen because I think it is a better way to really show values and shadows. I used water color for the big spaces that would take to long to fill in with pen. I think it was a creative idea because it wasn't actually on earth and it included more than just the moon. It was more of a view from the moon.

Interesting point of view

I decided to draw skyscrapers because it was really simple. I think when people look at the drawing they just feel that its simple. It was pretty challenging trying to make the skyscrapers stand out and really add value into it.

Up close and personal

I chose to draw hair because it was easy to use emphasis on. I showed emphasis through the bright color of hair against the dull background. For this picture I used color pencil to create texture in the hair and it was easier to create value with. Of the 5 characteristics of great art I included medium and technique in this drawing.
