Charcoal Pumpkin Drawing

This is my charcoal pumpkin drawing. My intention with this drawing was to really capture the set up I was looking at. I feel i accomplished them myself. This drawing focused on bringing out the lighted areas and the shadows. The most difficult part of this was making sure the size of the pumpkins where the same way paper. I accomplished this by really focusing and measuring things out. I really learned a lot about shadows and pulling out light. If i could re-do this project, i think i would focus on making less lines to the drawing and make it more the shapes. i think the best thing about my drawing are my shadows.

challenge #4

I obsess over my friends/family. They are the people that make me the happiest. These are the faces of people who are always there for me and that I'm thankful to have.

Artist Statement

This is my art piece. My goal of this piece was to recreate, in drawing, the paper sculpture I had made. I accomplished this goal by study the drawing. I was surprised to find how much detail went in to just drawing letters. My drawing focuses much on shading. The most difficult part of this for me was getting the right placement of the letters and their angles. i faced this difficulty being studying the sculpture as best as possible. Something that I have learned that i can bring to my next drawing is that studying a piece and using your brain is really important. An artist in the class i learned from is Josh Robinson. His shading in his piece was very nicely done and i learned from him how to shade my drawing. If had on do over, I think I would try to focus a little bit more and really try to see the piece how it is. I feel the best thing avout my piece is my shading. I enjoyed this project and hope to improve from here.
