Leave the Night Light On

So, I actually like how this turned out. It took me a long time to figure out how much I was going to shade initially so that it would look natural.

Pencil Box


So, I think this final box turned out pretty well. I found it interesting that once I had made my first iteration, the other boxes were much easier to make because I knew what I was doing.

Second Iteration

When I started to make this, I had an idea as to what it would look like but I did not expect it to take so long to actually make.

More Profiles


When we were doing these exercises, I came to realize that I much rather draw girls than boys. I had a hard time trying not to give them too feminine features.

Egg Photo Shoot

This is the final egg project. I thought it would be appropriate to show the fragility of the egg. In this model, the egg is held firmly in place in all angles. The straps contain it while the tissue paper provides for a snug, comfortable fit.

Close Up Egg

I like the look and texture of the straps in this shot.

I liked the first iteration in the fact that it is rather abstract. The shape and the feeling is different. The problem with this iteration is that it does not celebrate the quality of fragility. The lines are too hard; it does not look as comfortable as it should be. It does not encase the egg like it should.

People Watching

Friends Sketching FriendsSince our Group is the dead last to get out pictures taken, we had free time to sketch, so we all sketched each other.

Computer Lab

Lunch At Spencer's
This one was hard because the people in the background of the sketch kept leaving!! At least I got my friends to sit still for a few minutes.
Dorm Room Talk

I went to visit my friend in her dorm last night and I decided to draw while we caught up on the latest gossip.

Downtown Greensboro

City Park
Okay, so this a sketch of the Park. It took me awhile to figure out where I was going to draw from and then more time to figure out where I was going to begin. This was my favorite sketch because of the atmosphere as I was drawing. It was in the evening and even though I was downtown, it felt so peaceful the entire time.

Natty Greens
One night, a few of us went to Natty Greens for dinner. We ended up sitting outside, which was perfect because the views were great. The food was good too!

Greenhill Center

This was another view from the Park. The building is Greenhill Center. I really liked this structure.

This was the day that I went out to draw some more, and for the life of me, could not concentrate. I kept tuning into the conversation between these two men behind me.

Negative Space: Bike
This is my negative space drawing of the bike. For one of the 9 negative space drawings we had for homework last week, I did a bike too. It was easier naturally because it was in pencil! I like drawing in pen, but I don't really like how this turned out.

It is HOT outside!!

Take Two!
So, I began the drawing with the closest tree. As I was working, some guy drove up on his motorcycle and decided it would be a nice place to leave it for 30 minutes. The whole time I was drawing, I kept hoping that he would not come back and leave me with a half drawn motorcycle!!!

In Front of the Science Building
So this picture was the first attempt. It was so hot yesterday and I could not concentrate for the life of me, hence the reason why it is not done.
