Two Wheels One Struggle

In this project we were told you take a picture of an old rusty bike and re create the picture on a sheet of paper. With the bike picture though we had to blow it up and let it take up the whole paper and shade it in. At first I thought this would be a piece of cake but while I started to draw the bike I realized how much of a struggle this piece was, which was frustrating and surprising.

The bike took me a lot of time and while drawing it I made a resemblance to how it's kind of broken down and out of place. As you can see the bike looks a little un-done but that's not the laziness and frustration that I have as a person, that was my touch I wanted to show in the bike drawing. So, I made the look done with the handle bars and down but around the bike around the back tire that's when my thought came into place. Once this thought came and was down on paper I started to shade the bike, which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, if anything it was my favorite part. In the end the bike did come together in my own way.

At the end of this project I've learned that the things you see in front of you aren't as easy to put down on paper. But, you can not let your frustration over power you, you still have to pull yourself together and always remember to put a part of your thought and what you see behind the picture you are drawing in the picture that you are creating.
