Opening Up

I had been itching to draw the human figure for a while. I was hoping to make the woman look like she was opening up, stretching, as to what I was originally planning on doing. Originally I was going to do a human curled up as that would represent how I've been feeling lately. I was going to create her body out of multiple colors with paint and then decided to do stippling instead. I was thinking about leaving the background white at first, but then I noticed a person wouldn't be able to see her curves and I found that important. I was originally going to use grey pen to fill the background, but I didn't want to ruin the piece in the case I couldn't help the background from looking streaky. So I scanned it and put it on photoshop to play around with the backgrounds to see what I would like better. And this is the final project.

Mixed Media: Minor I girl herself is made with pen. I used the technique of stippling did that first. Afterwards I scanned the drawing and added in the grey background. It was actually my first time using photoshop. I originally wanted to get a grey pen to color in the back to keep the media the same, but I was too nervous too since it would be very hard to keep the background from looking streaky.
