Paper Sculpture

Color Project

The theme we had for this project was creature/adventure. I decided to go with the creature and I had to figure out weather to draw a mermaid or a fairy. I decided on drawing a fairy with colored pencils.
I chose color pencils because I have more practice with them and I felt I had more control with them. The biggest difficulties was trying to not make it look so drawn, and give it a more realistic effect, along with blending the flowers.
It was much harder than I expected.


I thought I did a decent job. I am not very proud of the piece because I prefer the more realistic views and I had trouble making the girl look realistic along with the flowers/ background.
If I could change anything it would be the placing of the fairy, I do not like her splat in the middle, I also would change her hair and the background.
I learned how to not blend colors and how to blend them better. ( win loose situation)
