Freestyle Sketch (03/27/2013)  – Zhicheng Yang

This is a sketch of the street view of  a place that around 1770 S. William Street, Denver. I use different types of lines to make this sketch because I want to express my feeling of the cold weather in Denver. In fact it was the time that the heavily snow just melted away, and it brought even colder weather.

Reflection (04/16/2013) – Zhicheng Yang

I made this painting only by black ink. I got this idea when I saw my reflection on the surface of the head part of an long lamp. I thought it was pretty interesting and I decided to make an artwork of this moment.

Heart (05/23/2013) – Zhicheng Yang

For this project, I would like to show an idea of humanity that I understand personally. I mainly focus on two-point perspective to create this artwork. In this art piece, the structure of blue represent “Pure”,  the structure of red represent “Hope”, and the dark structure represent “Darkness”. I want to show an idea that even people have some “Darkness” parts somewhere inside the hearts of themselves, “Pure” and “Hope” are important elements that surround the darkness, and provide human from evil in maybe different kind of ways.





Chimera (02/10/2014) – Zhicheng Yang

At the beginning of thinking the idea of this artwork, I would like to create another version of a “Medusa”- a monster in Greek mythology. However, after I did some researches I found that Medusa was not a monster with aesthetic beauty. So I redo the research of Chimera- A combination of different monsters. Finally I decided to use body of a snack, body of a human, and a wings from raven for my artwork. The story for this Chimera is that: with the fast improvement of science, after maybe hundreds of years, genes of different species may combine, and new species may exist on Earth.



Person VS. Machine Sketch version (03/15/2014)- Zhicheng Yang (Reference from Man v. Machine – SFTropes)

This is an class project that required me to find a photo online and change some elements myself. I find the reference picture  Man v. Machine – SFTropes and I thought that idea was pretty interesting, that’s why I choose this art photo to do the artwork with graphite rods.



Portrait of a Girl (04/20/2014)- Zhicheng Yang

I draw this portrait and give as a present  to my friend Sun. She’s an DU student. At the time I drew this artwork, she had some little brushes with her friends. In this artwork, I would like to use dark tone to represent her inner world.




In my dream: Episode 1 & 2 – Zhicheng Yang

This artwork showed one of my dream when I traveling to Japan. I use some Japanese Manga style, and also drew some Japanese manga characters appears in my dream. It talks about I was hunted down by a bad guy, but some hero with justice saved me. Whatever, that was funny.
