The overall composition of my artwork turned out pretty well. I thought that I balanced the different contrasts nicely and carved most of the stray areas away. I did have some parts that should have been cut deeper to not catch any ink, but overall the lines turned out smoothly and clean. The only thing that I wish I could have fixed was the margins. They were a bit unclean with a tad bit of smudged ink.
I added texture and contrast to my print by using different types and widths of lines to define the edges. This created the effect of larger, more fluffy hairs, and smaller, more furry hairs. This is important because it adds depth to the picture to make it seem more real and not so flat. If you never added texture, the picture would just look like a sheet of paper with some ink on it. The texture and contrast adds the third dimension.

4. What worked about this project? What didn’t work?
I thought the shading and colors really worked together and complimented eachother, but the shading part was hard because I always thought my looked choppy.
5. If you were to do this project over again, what changes would you consider making?
If I did this project again I would probaby use different colors like purple and silver to add more value and make it more eye catching.
6. What was the most difficult part about completing this piece and why?
The most diffficult part to me was trying to correctly blend the colors together without having lines down the object in which I was trying to draw. I could always sometimes see the colors seperating and I always tried my best to blend them a little better.
7. What did you learn from this piece?
I learned much more about value and how to shade items correctly to make it look more realistic. I know even know how to add shadows and know my source of light.
