In this art work I was trying to draw a take-out carton in a way that separates the page and the chopsticks lead you into the picture. I had the carton divide the paper by making sure it hit 3 corners of the page and had the chopsticks coming out of the carton. I was surprised at how many shades and values could be made with the same piece of charcoal. My drawing is about value. My most difficult challenge was the inside of the take-out box and I met this challenge by using the darkest charcoal for the folded sides in the carton and the bottom of the box. I felt the shift to the right side of my brain when I stopped talking and focused more on my artwork. My favorite part of my art work is how the chopsticks disappear into the carton. I learned how lighting placement affects the casting of the shadows. Jessica's artwork is very beautiful and I learned how contrast in the shading can really make art work pop. If I had a do-over I would have had a greater contrast of values in my artwork. I feel best about the shading of the chopsticks.

In this artwork I was trying to make the pumpkins look like they were emerging from the darkness in my paper while keeping in mind Erin Cone's modern organization in her artwork. I accomplished this by using my eraser to draw the pumpkins instead of charcoal first and creating to sections in my drawing. I was surprised that I could create something by using mostly an eraser. My drawing is about contrast of values. My most difficult challenge was drawing the stem if the second pumpkin. I met that challenge by trying not to think of the stem as a stem and tried to draw it as its own shape. I experienced the shift to my right brain when i was erasing the lit part of my pumpkins rather than sketching out the outline of my pumpkin.My drawing really works in between the bottom and middle pumpkin where the black blends them both together. I learned that there always small changes that you could make in your artwork despite how long you work on it. Michaela had a skull in her artwork and it was shading very smoothly and it looked like it was glowing. If I had a do-over i would put a skull in mine or carve the pumpkin and put a candle in it. My favorite thing in my artwork would be the organization in the background.

My bed because I am pretty lazy.
My fridge because I am always hungry.
Waffle House because it is my favorite breakfast place and has the best hashbrowns.
This is the vegetarian aisle of Walmart because I am vegetarian and I love Walmart.
My closet because I setup my computer in there and I am always playing video games.
