My overall goal for this artwork was to bring out the dark and lights to show value. The way I accomplished my overall goal of making my value very intense was looking very carefully at the way light hit on my word. What surprised me the most when completing my drawing was how much emotion comes from shadow, shadows set the mood of an artwork. My artwork was about value, shadows, and composition. I brought out my value by blending colors, my shadows stood out due to how dark and in depth they were. My composition was interesting, I made sure that some part of my drawing went off the page.
The biggest challenge I faced when working on my drawing was making sure my shadows brought out my emotion. The way I did this was by squinting making me focus on those values and not to much to the detail. The was I met this challenge was I made the shadows very intense, making this value occur. When I was was starting to draw my word I realized that there are no mistakes in art just adjustments when I realized that my right side of my brain went on a frenzy. My artwork really stands out on where it was placed and my shadows. Throughout the process of completing this drawing I learned that your artwork is never final, there are always adjustments to be made, also that making shadows to intense can affect how you values bend to one another.
Mr.G showed me that starting very light will help map out your artwork, making small lines help you when you come back to finalize what you have drawn also letting you adjust any issues. If I could redo this drawing I would fix my shadows around the letter "L," they are to dark and intense for where the light hit on the word. Overall the best accomplishment was my shadows and that I learned to stop smudging so much and allowing my pencil to do the work.
