I used balance in my artwork by trying to make the amount of black and white equal to make the drawing pop. I tried to fill the background with coral and sea life to make the eye move around the page, but the fish is the focal point.
Texture and contrast were important because there were only two colors you could have on the pictures; the paper and the ink. I didn't want the print to look totally flat and lifeless, so the stripes and dark parts of the fish were kept, and I cut out the rest so the fish would pop out against the background. I also tried to use a variety of thick and thin lines to add some texture.

I thought our project was successful because when we first decided what we were going to draw, we weren't even sure if we could pull it off! Once we got everything going and got a little help drawing the backpack, everything was much easier. The final product turned out so much better than we thought it would, so that's why I consider our mural to be successful.

My craftmanship on this portrait was neat, but could've been better. It was hard to make the different values blend together sometimes, so I think some parts look a little bit rough because I was changing the pressure of my pencil. Other than that, I think my craftmanship was good. There aren't any stray lines and I did my best to make it look neat.
