This is my drawing of on of the biggest rappers ever, Biggie Smalls. For this I used a pen and paper. The new skill I learned prior to this project was creating value by hatching and cross hatching. This was valuable because I had to use a pen, and unlike a pencil you cannot make different values very easily by pressing harder or lighter. The design element that relates to this is value. The mood behind this is greatness, because Biggie is an iconic rapper.
This is a drawing I did depicting a couple shapes and water vases that I arranged together in a certain way. The new skill I learned is making some object lighter or darker according to a gray scale version of the picture I took. This gave the drawing a 3D effect. The design element that relates to this that I used is contrast. Some shapes were darker, and some were lighter, and that contrasted very well. The mood behind this piece is simplicity, and peace.
