This first set is from my drawing class, done in pen and marker. They are of objects collected from my room, a figurative self portrait, if you will. The first is a contour, for the most part, and the second is a representation of negative and positive space.
This mixed media set requires a bit of explanation. The top image was done in illustrator, its a photo of myself in a reflective surface with all tone changes outlined. I cannot even begin to express how much time this took to do. The lower image is that same photograph with the tone changes painted in with hand mixed acrylics. This was a time-consuming but very fun project.
I always thought that linework was a really interesting form of representation, borderlining illustration to some extent, since real life objects dont have an outline around them. Instead, the lines represent a dramatic change in tone that we see, and they represent a form. They can be very effective in their representation.
