This is my tracing of a picture I took with Carolyn, which I traced in Sketchbook Pro. I played with layers and liked how I had the ability to adjust the opacity of the layers, and that especially helped me when I drew on the hearts above our heads. I was familiar with most of the tools, because they were similar to Photoshop and "Sketchbook X", a program I've used in the past.

For this assignment, I started with a soft pastel color, and created an ombre background, then used a stencil that I liked. It was too small for the whole canvas, and I didn't want to enlarge it, so I moved it around to my best ability but you can kind of make up the lines where I had to move the stencil. I erased the paint that was exposed, and the stencil created the pattern.
For this street art piece, I used Art Rage to "spray paint" on a quote I've seen before, and I used a bunch of new tools, like the paint knife. After using them after a while, I got a hang of it because it's very similar to Photoshop. It was a good opportunity for me to use a new platform for drawing.

This was a relaxing piece to make, and I stuck with more pastel, soft colors. It's sideways for some reason, but usually they are standing hotdog style, and I used Art Rage instead of Photoshop. I blended everything in with a paint knife, and used mostly the spray paint and eyedropper tool. Not a lot of creativity, but it was very calming.

Meet Scarlett Johamster, and I'm sorry if I caused any eye damage or caused a seizure to some people. I blended the two backgrounds, one of a hamster and one of Scarlett Johansson. I erased the hamster with an eraser on low opacity to merge the two images. I then uploaded a transparent frame and added text. It's very festive for the Halloween season.

This is probably one of my more admirable pieces that I'm pretty proud of, and it was very satisfying to complete. I was on a bit of a time strain and I lost my dude twice, but in the end I am glad things turned out the way they did and wouldn't change a thing. The guy in the back was solely because I am obligated to have at least 3 people, but the first two are very detailed and I poured my heart into them. I got to flex all my techniques, like blending, shading, etc. I will provide what they first looked like so you can see the difference :)
