My favorite tool is pastels because they kind of bring they pictures to life when I mix and smear the colors in. My favorite material is paper that is smooth and thick because the picture looks way better and when I use different tools to draw my work with, it doesn't go through. And I prefer to use smooth paper because when I use paper that has a rough texture to it, the picture don't have the same quality as the picture that was done on smooth paper. The way I make decision throughout my work is that I look at what I'm trying to draw and the texture I want to come out of that. Then I get the materials that give that pictures those qualities and do my work.
While I was working on the figure drawing, I chose the right color that would bring the picture out then I start drawing the shapes that make up the picture. Next I connected the shapes to make the outline of the person and then did the details such as the shading and the creases of the shirt. Finally I went back over me work with a different color to make the body shape even better.
While I was working on the clear object, I shaded the paper before I drew the object. Next I chose the clear object I wanted to work on then I started to draw the shape of the object. Then I drew the details of the object like the bottom part of the object that you can see on the other side. After that I made the light and dark shading of the object and then smeared around the outline of the object because clear objects don't have a dark outline. Finally, I put the object's shadow into the picture and then smeared it a little so it wouldn't be really dark.
