Science and Contrast Project
My final piece!
Rough sketch of my evolution of cameras idea
Rough sketch of my octopus idea
I had a really fun time with this project. I had a lot of fun with coming up with the idea that incorporated contrast with including a scientific aspect in it. I also had fun exploring the different pen techniques, like stippling and hatching. For me the best part of a project is coming up with an amazing idea that you get to bring to life using your artistic skills. I also had fun exploring different ways to bring in contrast with my piece. Overall, this project helped me explore my creativity and grow as an artist.
Today we learned about and practiced pen techniques. There are three types of pen techniques, hatching , stippling, and invented. Hatching is adding or decreasing the amount of lines to indicate value. Cross hatching is adding lines that cross each other to add value. If you add more line the darker the value it and the less lines, the lighter the value is. Stippling is adding or subtracting the amount and size of the number of dots drawn to indicate value. Lastly Invented is adding random lines that you make up to add or subtract value. Again the more lines the darker the value is and the less lines the lighter the value is.
