Well we just started in a new medium of colored pencils. I have to say that this is my first time using Prismacolored pencils. For the exercises, we were to use a magazine ad and cut it in half and then use the colored pencils to reproduce the other half. The magazine ads were on the left facing the picture of course. Now, my printer with maximum resolution scanned everything but did not scan the very light hues of pink or mineral orange that I used. I will have to figure out some way to capture that. It became overly bright and I tried to use Adobe Photoshop to clean it up, but I was still unable to pull out the pinks. If any of you have any ideas, please let me know. The pictures do look better in person than scanned that is for sure.
Here is my first entry into showing my artwork from my first Drawing I class. Currently we are in our second month of the semester and I will have more images to share with everyone. My hopes are to get critques of my artwork and then use those critques to become better. One of the best things about the art community is the sharing of knowledge and I hope that the knowledge gained will translate into better drawings and gain experience to share with others.
I look forward to your comments and hope to share a few of my own with you all.
