Color Mugger

 

Here is a drawing I did while at Baker College in a design class. The project consisted of drawing anything using two complementary colors.

I decided to make it kind of abstract.

Actually, the gray shadow is orange and blue blended together. This proves the theory that complementary colors, when blended together, cancel each other out and make either black, gray, or white.

 

 

Based on a Real Gecko

 

     I made the stereotypical shape of the gecko and then used my imagination on the color. This may or may not be an exact representation of a real gecko. One thing we can be sure of is that God loves variety. So if this is not a presently existing gecko species, who is to say that it never existed, or that it will not exist in the future?

   Here is a bunch of pictures of geckos. See if you can match up my version to an actual gecko!

Pencil and Pen

After the skeleton stage, I sketch using drawing pencils. Most of my artwork is 50% sketching and 50% erasing. When I am satisfied with the sketch, I trace it using a drawing pen. What you see above is the pen portion of this equation. At this point I am basically committing myself to my drawing and layout decisions. The only thing that changes after this is purely cosmetic. The outline, shading, shadowing, and color.
