I choose to do value, line, and texture drawing because I am a fan of free drawing anything that comes to mind. one my favorite animal is a chimpanzee, one reason why I like chimpanzees is their similarity to humans. My overall vision of my drawing was chimpanzee can do just as many things humans can do, for example, walk on two feet, dress up, and etc. The drawing shows a chimpanzee in a suit taking a picture on an iPhone, I wanted to show a sense a humor in my drawing to make a viewer giggle or laugh. The process of my art drawing all started with a movie call Planet of the apes, the movie shows an ape name Caesar growing up to be super intelligent and started to develop human characteristics, for example, he dresses, talks, and have a family. My idea for my drawing was an ape with human qualities. My work can influence others by thinking outside the box and being open to draw whatever they put their mind too. My work now compare to my previous is completely different, I notice some improvement over the last two months, a new tool I'll use was pencil shading. Pencil shading is twenty different types of pencils you can use to draw light, medium, or dark. Something I think I need to work on differently in the future is my time management Overall I am happy with my art project, I hope to influence people to draw whatever they put their mind too.
