While participating in this project, I feel as if i have gained a better understanding on the relationship between the figure and the background placed behind it. I also learned that the image relies on the background to portray an imagery and impact an individual due to constructing my own images. The downfall is that I believe I only gained the introduction of this concept. I feel that I can increase my practice in order to fulfill the goal of fully utilizing the figure/ground relationship. Furthermore, I feel that I need to become more familiar with the type of ink utensils I use to smoothly apply it to my images to show the smooth effect instead of the stroke marks. In other words, the presentation needs to become much better than how it is. What I will do in the future is ask for better feedback as I progress with my projects to complete it neatly.  This will allow me to get to the clean and presentable effect that I desire.
