I tried to create an interesting point of view by taking a part of a picture and focusing on that part in particular. I think it was successful because the piece makes the audience eyes go down the line of stuffed animals hanging up above the arcade stand. The reason this is so important is to create realistic landscape and environment. The world is 3D and drawing things out of perspective makes it 2D, flat, and altogether less interesting and dynamic piece. I think that the colored pencil exercises where important to understand how to layer. The stuffed animals were entirely made of cylinder and circles so I needed to learn how to layer color on these different shapes. The fur was also an extra exercise needed in order to make the stuffed animals look more like ones you would see at the State Fair. Fur was one of the main techniques I had to use within this drawing. It consisted of drawing multiple small lines to create a fur like texture. The usual layering of colors then created the shadows, mediums, and highlights on the fur of the stuffed animals. The perspective was of someone getting down an animal for someone (probably a kid) who won a prize. I believed the fore and middle were well done as the dog stuffed animal is larger (foreground) than the stuffed bear and seal (middle ground). The background was a clear blue sky at around in the afternoon. This part had less depth than I think it could have and would be something i would like to go back on later. Colored pencils in general have their own pros and cons when it comes to creating detail in drawings. If you put down the wrong layer of color (darker before lighter) this could seriously mess up the drawing and all the work you put into it. Despite this I found it easy to use without the fear of smearing the drawing as is the case with charcoal and pencil. While I did find that I was readily prepared for a colored perspective, I think a few texture techniques should be taught should someone want to take on a more ambitious project.
