Color Project

The three objects that I chose for my Color Project were three characters that I really love and represent me. Their names from left to right are, Twisted Fate, an amazing character in the online game League of Legends, Iron Man, from the Iron Man series, and a Jedi Knight, from Star Wars. Twisted Fate has a smugness that I (think) I have and he also represents my love for gaming, Iron Man represents my interest in sci-fi, especially sci-fi that could be possible, like the making of his suit, and Jedis are very dear to my heart because of my name, plus I really enjoy the Star Wars movies. I used color pencils of a variety of hues to give my drawing its color. The reason I chose to use color pencils is similar to the reason I chose to use marker as my medium for the Name Project (see earlier post). Color pencils allow for more precision for coloring inside the lines, which were also outlined with black color pencil. The definite shapes along with the ability to show color contrast makes using color pencils a strong choice to choose when wanting to draw realistically, which is what I wanted when I started this project. However, if I had the chance to redo the project, I would use pastels to color my background instead of color pencils in order to give it a smoother look; smooth backgrounds are generally more pleasing to the eye than "choppy" backgrounds.
