texture line and type
pattern line and type
I think this projct was fun. I’m happy on how my drawings came out. Again I think I was too detailed, more specifically the fence drawings. The lines and text were not hard but it was too time and thinking on how I wanted it to look.
(the pictures can’t compress at 100K. Copy and paste link on google search to see image)
I chose the fence for the pattern and dessert for texture.
The texture of the desert picture looks smooth for most of it but in other parts of the image the sand looks like a rough texture. The ‘lines’ in the image are organic and has a constant flow like waves of an ocean. The movement moves are going mostly horizontal with little sharp angles. This picture stood out to be because of the balance between light and dark and high contrast between them. The dark is almost close to black while the lightest is above the mid tone.
The fence is a pattern of twist and turns. The pattern repeats from left to right and top to bottom. The rhythm is consistent but the further it goes the smaller it gets dur to the prospective. The contrast between mid-tone and the darkest sports are not strange. Its hard to tell without taking closer look.
I learned how to simplify and value of positive and negative. I can have done simplify the shapes more because it was really time consuming to redraw the outlines over and over again. I can implement what I’ve learn here to my next project by keeping things simple base on quantity of work I have to do.
I think that this composition still communicate the same mood as the final sketch. The lines are the same but the contrast in the final sketch is light compared to the final which is India ink.
The image is a geometric shape. Its clearly circler with a few bumps on the edges. The relationship between the figure and background is the difference of monochrome. The contrast is really bright between them. The image is obvious because the circle takes up about 30% of the foreground.
The shape is also geometric. The shape is hexagonal in overall shape. The relationship between the figure and background is a weird one. The use of contrast are on the shape but the black goes on to the background. This means on the dark side, the figure wouldn’t keep its hexagon shape. The is obvious because again this takes up about 30% of the whole image.
This one is geometric. The image has a background with similar monochromes to it. its mixed with two shapes with both being in the lighter shape of gray. This is obvious because the figure stands bigger and sticks out.
This image contains many shapes with different monochromes. Its round in some places but also look like the liquid of a lava lamp. This makes the edges of the shapes look organic. Since the figure consist of many shapes with two contrast, it would be hard to tell what sin front and what’s in the back.
This is another rectangle shaped figure. Its geometric but more wavy and folded. The relationship between the figure and background is the almost perfect spacing of the positive and negative space. if this was adjusted then it would be perfect. This is ambiguous because base on the shape itself. It would be easier to tell the difference if the first half was cropped.
This is the most difficult to find. I had to go looking for this image. The shape seems organic since there is no clear geometric shape within this image. The relationship would letting be the negative space being small in some locations while the positive takes up a large about of space.
Story for all images (combine in one paragraph)
The busy streets of New York is not too kind to the things within it. The things we create or put there all have their story on how and or why they got there. Not every try is usable. A circle like figure was a leftover from a delicious meal and was toss aside on the cold hard pavement. The same can be said for another paper like figure. This one was left alone next to the trash when it’s owner failed to aim it in the bin. These two figure gets constantly stepped and rolled on until the magic moving bin swipes them away. Wings are not needed to fly where this thing is going. All it needs is the wind to carry it on its journey to freedom from the deadly valley below. As for the other figures, nature are not so kind to them. Constant rain and oxygen doesn’t make the metal. Not being able to move like the figure above can lead to being abuse by the creatures and the air around them. The lava shape figure could get to this state by other creatures with sharp claws and other organisms that might find this figure as a snack. The jagged shapes can be from the elements chipping away at it and the tape from content posters plated on it making at the damage worst.
