what the hand beholds

i miss read the prompt when doing this i had several ideas in mind and i didnt do a hand under stress. but i did draw a hand with a lot of lines and folds. if there to be something i would change it would be the paper because i dont think it was the best choice the texture feels wrong. but other than this i like it.

The Golden Flower

When we were first drawing these people on paper i was't to excited about the project but after cutting them out and tracing them onto the bristol board i began to really like the ideas in my head. This piece turned out exactly how i pictured and i really like the color choice. The gold lief was a bit of a struggle at first but it came out good. I wanted the focus to on the glod flower in the middle swo i got the characters to all be looking at it from different agles.
The boarder took a lot of detail in time but the designs worked great for tying the whole piece together.

masquerade ball

For this prompt we had to do formal wear. i did mine arund the idea of a masquerade ball. I did it that way because i like the dresses and the masks people would wear to such a ball. I like the color choice because it worked out well with the prompt.

the powder room

For this page in the altered book our prompt was to do our bathroom counter. I took the most common designs in my bathroom such as the soap despensor and the toothbrush holder and recreated there designs. i took the way we painted the walls and changed them. i also took the shower and put water coming out of the showerhead.
