With this project, my goals were to focus on my shadows in the drawing. I kept checking to make sure my angles were right and my shadows were proportional. I also made sure my shadows were detailed by using contrast between the colors. My drawing is mainly about dramatic shadows and negative space. The hardest part was creating that illusion of something that is there but not drawn with a black outline. I payed close attention to where the light hit the box instead of looking at the shadow. Although, my drawing looks really cool in the inside of the box. It's almost like there is the sun inside the box. It also creates a really cool shadow. I've learned the technique of negative space while drawing this piece. Negative space is a different way of drawing; you draw what you don't see instead of the tangible object you actually are looking at. My class mate showed me how to create detail with the white chalk. I was very surprised at how that changed my drawing. It took it to a whole new level. Honestly, I wouldn't change anything if I has a do-over. I was really content with this piece. I really think my shadows are the best part of my drawing.
