Personal collections reflect you?

In my honest opinion i feel as though that when you collect things it reflects who you are. For instance if you collect certain music albumns from an artist usually that music reflects on who you are or what you been through or can relate to. It doesnt always mean when you collect things they have to define you but majarity of people do. This usually happens because they like to go back after years and look back on things they had interest in in their younger years.

Bicycle drawing

The process of my bicycle drawing was very interesting. I liked how we drew them out in an up close view. This made it seem even more real. Most importantly this drawing interested me when we started shading because there is different pencils to shade and help perfect your drawing. The first pencil is the hb pencil. This  is the drawing pencil. Next the 2h pencil is the light shading pencil that shades very lightly. The 6b pencil is the darker pencil for shading. The 6b pencil is my favorite. It doesnt take much effort to make your shading dark. In my opinion i like well developed black and white artwork, rather than many colors. I feel it brings out the actual picture in a better and more difficult manner.

Compare and Contrast

In my experiences with the colored pencils and the graphite pencils i enjoyed comparing my drawings. To me i enjoyed the shading with the colored pencils a little more, but both experience taught me different things. Graphite pencils taught me that certain pencils only need a certain amount of pressure for each of the three pencils. The colored pencils leave a smooth coat when you shade hard if you shade light there will be white spaces throughout the drawing.

Candy Jar

The process in making the candy jar came together very well. Im glad i got the chance to experience working with these colored pencils. I liked how you could use other colors to replace a dull pitch black. Than soon after , when you go over the drawing again you add a darker and smoother coat of the color to it so theres no white blotches. This helps define shaded areas and make your drawing seem alive. I enjoyed getting to draw the candy in the position its in in reality and drawing it on paper that exact way.

This is my first year of art, I'm willing to stay open minded. I look forward to this year.
