Messing With Nature

Because my drawing final is currently being hung for display I'm now posting a design project from last quarter.  For this we had to turn a object from nature into a man-made object in five steps. I turned a stick into scissors. No, I'm not a magician, just a....well...I'll keep that for myself.

Color Theory

Probably because my hardest class taken yet. It was basically trial and error, that is to say I tried very hard and made many errors. The first design seen is one using a cool color template , inspired by cherry blossoms. The second is a template using traits of the first design using colors extracted from a magazine clipping. I think they are more like cousins than siblings.

The Strings Has Two Ends

It's time for spring break for my school, which means it's time for me to update this blog. *listens for cheers* * Hears crickets*
Fine, the project I worked on for a month was well.... a long process. I basically drew a hallway, or let's say the platform for stairs and added surreal elements to it keeping in mind lighting and balance. I guess this could be an extension of my concentration about the effects of control and question of ownership and freedom ( or it could I just wanted to draw marionettes for a longs time. You choose. But here are some process shots and my final product ( which I may go back and edit a bit, but I'm not sure yet) For my first time draw with ink ever, I think I did a fair job.
