So in hope to rest my mind from all the coloring I did this summer. I went back to an all bic pen drawing. This is of some kind of Egyptian monster dangling a boy over a crocodile pit, oh no! I love ancient Egypt history and I'm hoping to dive into it more in the future. I also decided not to fill up the page all the way like I usually do, but I think it's a decent drawing.
I'm halfway there!! I have to say this has been a long summer, but I I have learned so much! Since we're heading towards the end I'm running low on steam, and my ideas have been less spicy. But I do enjoy drawing beautiful dresses, especially after watching My Fair Lady. I love the scene at the horse races with all of the big hats and froo froo skirts. Actually one of my biggest desires is to go to an event where you have to wear a gigantic hat.
Anyways, back to the art . I have also been trying to find ways of filling a page without COMPLETELY filling the page like in my "Dream" piece. Not that filling the page is a bad thing, but it is good to change it up. So I've been trying to think of how to convey a memory in a drawing without it being completely obvious that it's a memory, like with a thought bubble. I would like to do more memory drawings in the future so this was an experiment. The old woman fading away remembering the days in which she was young. Like the 'Circus" drawing, I am going to color this on the computer. The paper I used is an off yellow, I thought it looked nice with the blue colored pencil.
Image #4 for my independent study. I thought this time around I would make a lighter piece with less deep dark meeting. I did this on 15x22in paper with a dark blue prismacolor pencil. I've seen artists use colored pencils for their line work and I really love the effect it has once color is put in. So once I finished this I documented it and now I am working on the coloring process. I am going to color it the same way I did the "Princess Lolli and Mr. Mint"
