I think that this project turned out pretty good overall. I couldn't think of much to put in the background so i just added some clouds. Scientific was a pretty broad theme considering that almost everything can be scientific in some way. I originally wanted to do a whole desert scene but i decided to focus on just the cactus. The main part of the drawing takes up about two thirds of the paper just like the rule. My opinion on the project is that it is a good first drawing and i learned about different pencil lead hardnesses and how to use them.
