soft ground

this one is hard to explain so I wont sorry peeps


This technique uses tree dust then you melt it on to the copperplate and etch it in ferric chloride I used this technique over my hard ground.

I really don't know how to spell this next technique so I am not going to try...

chine colle

I added paper to my drypoint and it became a technique called Chine colle

This was the next technique I learned in printmaking, it is a hard ground. For those you who aren’t familiar with printmaking this is done by pouring colored floor wax on a copper plate scraping the image out and then etching it in ferric chloride.

This is my Drypoint (that looks a little better than the first one)


ok so this is my first print ever so don't judge me I know its wiped awfully , this is a Dry point.

This summer I took Sculpture 1 at BYUI it was a fun class and I thought since I had not posted in such a long time that I should post pictures of my sculptures. this was our first assignment It is a master copy unfortunately I do not know who the original artist was.

This is my favorite piece that I did in sculpture.


This was my final project in my sculpture class this summer I was trying out what one of my favorite sculptors, Andy Goldsworthy does. This piece is about change.

This week we get to pick what medium we would research. I came across an artist that uses pastels. I thought this might me a very interesting media to try to reproduce digitally. I have not used pastels very much so it don't know how to use it so I will do my best to find out the technics. Pastels have a very strong texture. usuall there is a bit of line work. it looks as though pastels can be layered and it leaves very interesting glimpses to the color underneath. the strokes are not as thick like impasto paint, it is fairly flat with alot of texture.

hear is the blog of Noah Kloceks blog he has many examples of pastels.

Digital illustration

This is the tradigital assinment that I did using watercolors and photoshop

Saturday, March 12, 2011

This weeks assignment in digital was to do what ever we wanted. I am choosing to reasearch tradigital, more specifically taking water color and digital and combining them. I love working with watercolors they have a charm to them and they are very spontaneous. Water color makes wonderful drippy marks that I do not know how to get digitally and it seems like many happy accedents occure. However in todays world knowing digital is required, also I have a hard time getting dark values with my water color. One of my favorite illustrators Justin Gerard has used this method of watercolors with digital very nicely. if you follow the link to his blog and look under the hobbit you will be able to see his process. With this tradigital process there is all the spontanity that happens natrally with water colors then it is scanned in and digitally refined and values are added.

This is a little practice piece I did today in color and design. I was dreading doing it because it was a piece of fruit and I thought it would be boaring but in the end I had a lot of fun!
