Pencil - Left and Right Brain

The third art homework is a drawing of the left and right brain and showing the differences between them I went for a more abstract view and decided to only use straight lines for the left half and used curves for the right half. The scanner decided not to cooperate so the chessboard with "strategy" on it did not come out very good. As for the art itself I think that the shading could use a bit more touch-up work and an actual shadow on the brain itself. This blog post will end the second longest post-to-post time (only to Kokiri's Emerald - Goron's Ruby), and sadly I have not had a lot of time to do post-it art in school. I have plans for non-school-related art and other material for this blog but for the time being I have a choice between school and art and school is my choice for now.

Marker and Watercolor Pencil - "Art Tips"

Another art homework today, this drawing is a rules of art poster. On this one I tried to use different mediums than the standard pencil that I normally use. I think that the marker designs in the "Art Tips" header turned out well, but the watercolor pencil in the background, save probably the blue splotch, didn't come out very well. The sketchbook paper is probably too thin for watercolor, with the thickness being 50 lb and watercolor paper being around 140 lb.

Colored Pencil - Color Wheel Hylian Shield

This drawing was created for an art homework for school and the assignment was to create a color wheel design. I chose a Hylian Shield, based off of the Twilight Princess design, and I created the color wheel with the gray metal framing centered on the Triforce.  I used a combination of my Derwent artist pencil set, my Staedtler colored pencils, and a pack of Crayola colored pencils. I think that it turned out very well. I was able to create a good lighting effect in the blue material in the body of the shield, which I used this model for. I felt I had some trouble in the lower right-hand side of the blue, where I used a black colored pencil to create a shadowed effect. I think that the shading also went well, and I liked how I made a darker edge along the inner part of the shadow. One thing I was concerned about was the blue part of the color wheel blending in with the blue body of the shield, but I put in gray around the entire wheel seemed to counter that problem. I will hopefully put up whatever other art homework I have as a supplement to the post-it art.

Post-it Art #4-5 - Bomb Bag & Bomb and Boomerang

Post-it Art #4 - Bomb Bag and Bomb
Now that I have the time to create blog posts I can now share my two latest post-it arts, which are the boomerang and bomb bag. As for the bomb bag, I think that it ended up looking more like a trash bag, but I do like the shading. Somehow water got on the boomerang so it didn't like how it scanned in, but I feel like that it had good shading on it even though it was very light.

Post-it Art #3 - Fairy Slingshot

O noes my date says August 2 instead of September 2
My third post-it art (that I am posting 3 days after I made it) is the Fairy Slingshot, again from Ocarina of Time. I believe on this one the main focus of the detail is the many different surfaces found on the item, such as the wood, rope, leather, and plastic. I feel like I did a good job with the shadows which I have been working on for the entire series, however I feel that my wood texture could use some work. Post-it Art #4 is coming, I have had... problems with losing my post-its.
