During this project I was thinking about how good my project is going to look. I started on the first day with finding a picture and I was looking for a unique one so I searched a Yankees baseball player and I found a good one of Derek Jeter so I got it and drew it and it looked really good so I was excited to come back to the class the next day. On the second day I worked on scratching most of the stripes on his jersey and they were very hard with a weak tool so I was worried on messing up and I did on his face so I ended up not getting to actually do his face I had to scratch it out which was the worst part of my drawing. I thought this project was really fun it was truly the only work that I actually enjoyed I hope we do something fun next to.
During this 6th day project this is what I was thinking. On the first day I was thinking about how much fun this project would be and if mine would look good so it started of pretty well. On the 2nd and 3rd day it started to come into play that I was obviously way behind and I was jealous of Adam Mosharafa’s drawing his work always looks so good. On the 4th and fifth day I was really discouraged and tired of this project and could not wait for it to end then I got worried I would not finish it because we were supposed to finish in two more days which I wasn’t even close. And I was still jealous of Adam because he didn’t even care he was just drawing at a normal pace and his look really good. Lastly on the last day I was excited to start the next project so I just rushed and sketched the rest. That is what I was thinking during this project.
During the six days we were doing this is what I was thinking. During day one I kind of enjoyed working on the project because at the beginning my drawing actually seemed like it was going to be pretty good for a while. For a couple of days I felt it was going to be good until I had to deal with the objects on the wall. It was really tough dealing with a lot of these things but I tried to think about other stuff to get my mind off of the drawing like what I will do after school. Lastly I got really tired of drawing it and could not wait for the class to end everyday it was really boring. Then on the last day I was excited to finish it up then I realized we were going to do the same thing again right afterword’s and I was not looking forward to coming back. This is what I thought of the whole time during this project.

During these 6 days of drawing this pen and ink this is what I was thinking. On the first day I thought about how good mine was turning out and everything. One the second day of the drawing I thought about insults to say to Reid because he wasn’t doing so well and I thought it would be funny to mess with him. On the third day I was still thinking about what how my drawing was turning out and worrying about getting behind. And when we started inking it all went downhill from there and I started to think about what the other guys at my table where going to say to me when they saw my drawing and sure enough they did dis my drawing. After a while I started to get better and cross hatching so they completely stopped dissing me and I began to worry about being behind and surely enough as you can see in my last picture I was. That is what I was thinking about when drawing my Pen and Ink.
