I was just working on some front face drawings, and this was one of the better ones that I had drawn. I sat with Shannon for a while trying to figure out what was wrong and we adjusted a few things and messed around until I finally got something to look right.
Its Satan. Just a thought...really guys...its just a thought.

This first iteration of the box was very sloppy, but it was very functional. I was pleased with it, although I needed a new approach to building it. Here I cut out each individual peice and glued them together. This was not only time consuming but sloppy.
This is another picture of the sloppiness of the first project. As you can see the glue is very clearly seen.
This second iteration was much better, and I tried a new technique by scoring the sides and then bending them inward. It was much faster and much easier to build this time. The only problem I ran into was the top which I was going to put a slide peice in but then it looked tacked on and very un-atractive.
This final iteration of the box project was very easy and simple to construct. I had layed out everything on my mat board, and then just cut out two large peices. I scored them together and used rubber cement to glue them temporarily. Afterwards I used hot glue on a couple sides to help make the structure more permentant. Then I scratched away the rubber cement and It looked much cleaner. After talking to Tommy about what else I should do, he suggested that I leave it the way it is. I wanted to paint it, but he said I shouldnt have because the blue on the white was a very unique contrast.

Here I've posted some recent sketches of a couple classmates, that I didn't sketch in class before. The first one (above) was an improvement on the one I did in class, because I knew where to start and what details were important to add in.
This second was another improvement on that one, because I drew it much larger and It gave me more room to add in smaller details and other improvements.

I really had a hard time finding a good spot to draw people at, so I went to the library to draw people on the computers. Though the people did stay still for a bit, they always moved around and walked about, or even just left. This really made some of the drawings quite hard to do because I cant always picture what the person looked like in their past pose.
On this drawing I concentrated on getting both the peoples general position with the computer right. The space was hard to draw, but drawing in pen made things more fun because I had to commit to the drawing and go with it.
The wheelchair was another tough one...well none of these were actually easy. But this one was tough because the wheel chair was at an awkward angle and there were also alot of people in this drawing shifting around so it was a really difficult drawing. Though I tried to concentrate on the people more I ended up screwing up that and the space they were rendered in.
This last drawing (not that they are in any particular order) was drawn on the first floor of the library, in a large room on the left where a bunch of people were studying and messing around on the computers. I was a bit disappointed in this drawing mainly because I had messed up numerous times on the girl to the left and ended up having a nest of lines in there that I couldn't get rid of. I guess a lesson learned here would be to sketch over in pencil and then draw in the confident lines with pen.

This downtown drawing was of the BB&T bank that cross market street in downtown Greensboro. This one was the favorite of the four drawings, I guess the perspective I was drawing at was unique in that it bends in both directions almost like the building is being smashed between a valley.
This is the second drawing and was sketched just on a bench down spring garden.
This drawing was hard for me because I messed up the angle of perspective and drew the vanishing point straight up which cause the sketch to bend upward hard.

After the first critique I had learned that the project had no need of a base, but it didn't take me long to realize the solution to this problem. I designed it so that it would lay on its side...besides what really is up and down on a spherical egg? So here it is I've snapped a couple angles of the egg to show on here.
This was a shot from the top of the egg and I liked to way the light on each side cast two shadows, it was a pretty neat effect.
This is another shot taken of the egg place on the other side so that you can see how the two circles don"t actually touch each other.
This is a shot from the back, as you can see I used a lollipop stick to suspend the egg in the center of the sphere-like structure.

This Sketch was fun to do, even though there wasn't much time to complete it. The task given to me in this drawing was to draw the cityscape as I saw it in front of me. The hard part was of course getting comfortable so that I wouldn't move around and have to adjust to draw at different angles. The Look to this picture seems cartoon-like. I didn't want to impose on my lack of skill in drawing, but it really has a nice touch to it. Hopefully one day I'll have enough time to color it in or something.
In the Picture above of the Box you can see how the lines start to break away from each other. That would be a result of my rapid eye movement.
Drawing Negative space is a new technique that I practiced in Design Drawing. The drawing of negative space is about the shapes you can see outside of the objects "frame" On here I posted a couple sketch's that I put together inside and outside of class to portray the negative space within a chair.
