Disneyland Series

These pieces here are all part of a Disneyland Graphite Series I've been working on. I grew up going to Disneyland every year and just love everything it stands for. Although Disneyland is a fun place to visit, the history and Walt's philosophy behind it is even more fascinating. If you have a chance research Walt's thoughts behind the most magical place on earth.

This piece was using a combination of countour lines and photo realistic shading. The building in the background is the Gift Shop in MainStreet USA, and the silhouette is that of the Walt and Mickey statue in the middle of the hub.

This piece is a still life piece. Instead of drawing a boring bowl of fruit i thought this picture I took at the park said a little bit more.

I think this piece is amazing... I wasn't thinking that while working on it though, actually i think i swore a lot during the creation of this piece. However, after finishing it i realize that its one of my better projects. The criteria for this piece was a reflection, and since I'm the over achiever that i am, i couldn't choose a simple mirrored reflection, i had to go distorted. Anyway, i had a moderately fun time working on it, mostly because it was a challenge and cool to have to analyze the shapes on the tuba. For those who were wondering why this is part of the Disneyland Series, it is a viewing of the brass band in MainStreet USA. (Where's Waldo Hint: You can see my buddy Andrew and me taking the picture in the reflection somewhere, good luck)
