So You Think You Can Draw (a castle)

This weeks so you think you can draw assignment was to draw a castle in two or three point perspective. My drawing started out as a two point perspective but somewhere in the process I kind of lost the perspective. I decided to try and do something different from the rest of the class and do a sand castle. I was really pleased with how the final drawing turned out. The scan unfortunately changed some of the colors and even after playing in Photoshop I wasn't quite able to get it corrected. This image was done with chart pack markers which if you don't know what they are they are really nice markers but they cost around 5 dollars a marker so if you have about 250 dollars to blow on a basic set you should really try them. After coloring with chartpacks AD I went back over with colored pencils to help add in some texture and shadows.

project board

This is a project board that we had to do from a room study that we have been working on all semester. We used Photoshop to combine images from different parts of the process into one overall composition.

photoshop 3

This perspective that was changed in Photoshop was done by going in and finding colors that I liked in the color section. After selecting the color I used the paint tool and painted the sections the appropriate color. This application was fun to do however looking back I didn't think I was ale to achieve the cleanness that I like.

photoshop 2

This Photoshop procedure that i did was something that i found to be really fun a different. I did this by first creating a new layer and painting the new layer completely in a pale yellow and then i changed the setting of the layers to overlay. By doing this I was able to create this really interesting look.

photoshop 1

This Photoshop work that I did was just basic maintenance. I started off by cropping the image down to get rid of extra white space, Then i went to the levels tool and i lightened the light areas and I darkened the dark colors before he image was looking dull and hazy this fixed that. Next I went to color balance to correct the sades of the reds greens and the yellows. After doing all this I ended up with this.

skecthup rendered perspective #4

This is the fourth rendered perspective that we had to do based off of the colors from the Maud Gatewood painting that we choose. I choose to do a two point perspective to show off as much of the room as possible.
