Hi Anisa,
I must say, your finishes on the two letters of the alphabet with a space theme are impressive. Your work is awesome from start to finish. I just finished reading your discussion about your process, and all your decisions were spot on. Even though you're not working in black and white, you managed to combine the different values of color to create a cohesive piece. The astronaut stands out particularly well, and you did a great job of creating space between his body and his elbow. The warm and cool tones on the helmet, the blue and yellow, and the orange spacesuit are fantastic. The rendering on the space shoes is also great. I especially love the moon one with the little green alien coming out of it. The variety of colors you used, both warm and cool, and the accuracy of your values are impressive. The values between both of your letters are perfect, and they work together as a unified piece. Overall, you've done an excellent job.
I want to encourage you to consider pursuing a career in illustration, graphic design, or concept art. Your ability to understand and utilize different colors, especially warm and cool tones, and your understanding of the artistic process are evident in your work. Based on what I've seen, I believe this could be a definite career direction for you. I'm really pleased with your progress, and it's clear that you've learned a lot. Your enjoyment and passion for your artwork shine through, giving it that extra special something. Well done, Anisa!
