Composition Project #3

The third project in my art composition class was a morph. I decided to do a sword to pen motif with a border of square kufi script reading shalom/peace. It didn’t turn out so great, mostly due to the spreading of the Prismacolor pencils, but I did learn a very important skill: how to draw an accurate polar grid. Here’s the piece:


Time for Peace

The composition is not correct in the fact that the script border should be smaller and the sword/pen should be more featured, so I am in the process of redoing it with more care. Altogether, though, I have a greater appreciation for colored pencils in general and a love for circular compass rules.
