Project Description

Draw the thing you like the most and get rid of its background!

ASSIGNMENT 

One of my favorite techniques to create art is to draw with ink, scan and edit digitally.  Getting rid of the background in my linework was something I struggled to do. This technique has worked great for me and I can now do many more things with my lines than just simply using them as a black outline.  Your assignment is to draw the thing you like to draw the most (mine is flowers, birds and other animals, so I chose flowers) and scan it and remove it´s background.

DELIVERABLE

A completed project includes:

-A picture or jpg of your scan

-Your linework, recolored, and on a different background.
