Post-it Art #12 - Lens of Truth

The next post-it art is the Lens of Truth from Ocarina of Time. In this one I also included a small background with the lens showing a hidden door on an otherwise blank wall. I like the way that I shaded in the lens and it created a nice glass effect. However, all of the background walls and the lens frame are the same shade so there's no post-it wise contrast. Hopefully I can get the rest of the Ocarina of Time post-it arts done by the end of the school year so a recreation of the items and equipment menu can be made.

Post-it Art #11 - Megaton Hammer

The twelfth post-it art, aptly named #11, is the Megaton Hammer from Ocarina of Time. This post-it has been sitting in my folder for a long time because I kept forgetting to check a reference for drawing accuracy. It ended up not mattering anyway (hence the erased pencil marks visible above and below the hammer itself); I drew the handle as wood while in the artwork it is entirely metal with a grip. I especially like the shadow on this one. When I drew it, I realized that I didn't have a set direction that the light was coming from, which made it hard to draw a shadow that fit all of them. I ended up changing the shading on the handle and cap from a back light source (highlights on the far side) to a top light source (highlights on the top side) to compensate. I also like the shading on the hammer, but I waited a day to post it and the shading shown isn't exactly what I envisioned.
