I liked the candy jar drawing more than the bike drawing. Using colored pencils allowed more room for experimentation and imperfections on the candy jar. Using the graphite pencils for the bike drawing didn't allow much room for anything but a perfect looking bike in my mind (and by the end I was disappointed because I didn't have the perfect bike I had been anticipating). It also involved so much more focus. Drawing the candy was easy and while coloring I didn't pay attention to small details, I just did it.
When we first started drawing the bike I felt that I wouldn't be able to do it. It was extremely aggravating, especially when we started adding value. Shading takes a lot of patience and I got overwhelmed thinking about how long it would take before I even started. I thought that i would never finish. I managed to though, and it turned out better than I expected.
