Color Post Finished

My piece was very successful! I did very good with the roundness of the body and my best feature is the shading from dark to light on the pig. If I could go back and change one thing I would darken the front thigh muscle to make it stand out more. This project helped me learn how I can layer up colors on top of each other for cool 3-D effects.

Color Post In Progress

I have picked the theme creature for this project and have demonstrated a creature by drawing a pig. I choose to use chalk pastel because I liked the way it blended colors well and I liked how it was easy to manipulate. My difficulty has been drawing the pig's tail. It is hard to draw the tail perfectly coiled.

Finished two-in-one Blog Post


I believe that I was very successful in drawing this piece. I think that I captured all the features of an owl and a man. I am most proud of the owl's eyes and the man's arms. I spent extra time on these parts to make sure they looked just right. If I could go back and change one thing, I would change the nose and try and make it better. I have incorporated the theme two-in-one by combining an animal's head with a man's body.

Two in One Project

For this project I have chosen to combine an owl head with a human torso. To be honest, this idea came to me randomly. I chose to combine these two things because an owl's head is very similar to a human head. A human with an owls head is not something you see every day, therefore I decided to continue sketching with my unique idea. I believe that the owl head combined with a very muscular male body, will catch the eye of many people and interest them in my art work. I chose to use pencil and paper for this art piece. I feel more comfortable knowing that I can erase my mistakes. So far I have had difficulty in making the owl nose look 3D.
