Black and White Pencil Drawing

This is a second drawing that I did because I felt that my first was not as good. I definitely like this one better. I enjoyed this drawing.

Black and White Self Portrait

I enjoyed this assignment because it created something different. It was a little easier drawing myself than someone else. The white areas that are shaded are the areas where
the light was hitting my face.

Profile Drawings

These drawings are contour profile drawings, using proportions of the human skull.
These drawings happen to be of two of my friends.

The Pencil Box

This was my first try and quite a failure. This was when I was experimenting with the
sizes of the mat board.

This was my first iteration for this project.
I feel that I improved the final product a great deal.

This was the second iteration. I tried giving the appearance a smoother look.
Tommy pointed out that the smooth look of the vertical section was not harmonious with the other sharp edges.

The assignment was to design a container or box for pencils. One aspect of the project was not only to create a box for the pencils but to construct it as neatly as possible. I chose to design for what we know to be the primary and secondary colors out of a set of colored pencils. I really enjoyed this project.

The drawing on the top is of my sister and the bottom one is of my mother. I really enjoy doing this type of drawing because all the proportions turn out right.

People Drawings

These were people sitting at the soccer game Wednesday night.
These people were also sitting and enjoying the game.
For this drawing I was sitting outside of the coffee shop in the EUC and these
two girls were sitting across the hallway.

This drawing was done in the Department of Interior Architecture of one of the
professors and a few students.

The assignment was to complete four drawings of people in different surroundings.

A place for an Egg

This was my very first iteration for the egg project. The egg was meant to sit on the top
in the smaller pyramid.

This was one of the later iterations where I was trying a new idea and material.

This was one of the last few iterations that I had. The egg was meant to have the stick straight through the egg and sitting right in the middle of the circle.

Once agian this was one of the last few iterations where the egg is supposed to sit in the middle of the circle with the stick piercing the egg. The stick is there to help show the symmetry of the egg in one direction and not in the other.

The description for this specific assignment was to design a place for an egg, that celebrates a quality of the egg, using only paper. The paper aspect created quite a challenge. We were not allowed to use any adhesives. The quality that I chose to celebrate was that geometry of the egg, showing off the symmetry.

downtown Greensboro

This was the final drawing done downtown. Although this is my least favorite I do like the many windows involved with this building.

downtown Greensboro

This was my third contour line drawing and really enjoyed doing the different triangles on this building.

This was the second of the four contour drawings downtown. I personally like all of the detail in this one.

downtown Greensboro

This was the first of four contour line drawings that were required of me to do of downtown Greensboro.

Negative Space of a Bicycle

In class on Thursday we were told to do a negative space drawing of a bicycle. This was very difficult because of all the spokes. I personally enjoy doing negative space drawings because they actually turn out to look like the object being drawn than if you were trying to focus on the shape and lines of the object.

Contour drawings around campus

This is the second contour drawing that I did while sitting in front of the
Education building facing College Ave. I like this one better than my first one.
