this project had a lot of components that needed to be done with patience and time. I for one felt like it was very difficult in terms of getting the proper value scale and getting the transparency to show. having  to create 9 different shades from black to white made it harder to get proper magazine values that went well along the value scale. I found myself getting grays that looked too similar if not the same. also when doing the dots I couldn’t get a good visible difference between  6-8 on the value  scale. they all looked basically the same in my eyes. maybe creating another design would’ve helped. overall it was difficult but a good experience in learning about how to create transparency without using any light source as well as learning a few things about paint.
