Describe how you created an interesting point of view? Was it successful? Why or why not?
The pov is shot from below and the lanterns move the eye out. This project is unsuccessful because it is unfinished
Why is it important to understand perspective and how to draw it?
It is important to learn perspective because it helps you add depth in your drawings and its a valued skill to have because its so difficult to learn.
How were the colored pencil exercises important in the success of your piece?
The exercises taught me how to blend and use the medium.
Describe the craftsmanship of your colored pencil. What techniques were used? (How well the project is technically crafted).
Its ok in the craftsmanship department nothing really sticks out about the finished parts. I learned how to draw the lights on the lantern later into the project so the lantern on top looks better and brighter than the second one.
Were you able to achieve depth by showing a foreground, middle ground and back- ground? Explain.
I used the structure of the ceiling in my picture and spaced the bars closer together as they went back into space. Also the lanterns get smaller the farther back you go.
Explain your experience with colored pencil and the project in general. What were the obstacles and advantages?
It was difficult trying to get some of the smaller details in this drawing such as the little lights and I even made the lantern on the top bigger just so I could color it better so if I could do this drawing again I would use a larger paper. The advantages of this medium is that the prismacolor really expresses the vivid color of the lanterns.
Looking back on the progression of this project what skills, techniques or other information would you like to have been taught? Do you feel you were prepared for this project?
I felt prepared when it came to perspective and how it worked i just wish I knew what to work on first. I should have worked on the perspective of the ceiling and then drew the lanterns
