Pen - Ink Angles

This is another art homework assignment which I am putting up on the blog over a month after I drew it. The assignment was to draw an object from 12 different angles, with each not showing the entire object. I decided to use a random book which was lying around because a book can be shown open and closed; this made it into the final product. The squares, when "read" left-to-right and top-to-bottom, reveal a simple narrative about finding, buying, and reading a book. The purpose of the assignment was to experiment with different shading techniques with ink, and this can be seen in the variety of textures used. While in most of the boxes the shading seems to be good, in some (like the third and fourth down on the right column) it seems to be a bit flat. I also noticed that the top-rightmost box seems to have a higher ink density than the rest, which might be a side effect of not showing the white book or pages.

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa, and happy holidays to all that read my blog!
