I liked the colored pencils because it isn't new to me to color with them. It isn't hard to color with color pencils because you do not have to add things to your art work with color pencils.
i like chalk pastels because you can use your hands to determine how much lighter or darker you want it. Also it isn't just black you can choose different colors. Also you can use your hands to see if this is gonna work or not.
i took risk in my art work by having my background all white. not adding shading and not adding things to the background. the out come i think was not worth it because it did not give me the satisfaction i wanted but im too lazy to add things.
i did my shading the way i wanted because i did not like using the cross-hatching for the shading part. i did it by just putting my pencil on the sheet of paper and running it across it. i should have used the hatching and cross-hatching because that is what you taught us.
