Preliminary Idea and Project
This project came about through our Art II teacher assigning us a project where we had to create a poster advertising safe driving for the AAA Safe Driving Calender Contest. I chose to draw a Honda Crosstour because that is the car my Dad drives, and I think it's a really appealing car aesthetically. I chose to have my poster kind of show a before and after of what can happen when drunk driving.
Working with Mediums
I decided to use colored pencils in order to color in my poster because that is the medium I am most comfortable with. I used a blender pencil in order to make the color appear more solid. A blender pencil is a special white pencil that is used on top of colored pencils in order to make the color appear more solid. I drew from a picture of a car in order to make sure the car appeared, well, like a car.
