Intro Write: I'm Jaiden Kingma, 16 and I've had very little art experience. I've drawn cars every since I was little and always enjoyed it but never took a class for it. Some future goals and dreams of mine is to go to college and graduate. After college I hopefully want to become either a video game designer (or QA testing for games) or become a Chef. I 100% enjoyed this class this semester. It's a nice chill relaxing and enjoyable class I had right in the middle of my day that helped me learn skills to draw better. Before this class I always use to draw things from what I had stored in my head rather then focusing on the image I saw. I leaned countless tips and tricks to help me draw as well (cross hair thing, drawing upside down, etc.).
Elements of Art/Drawing: We focused on contour lines, blind contour (drawining without looking) and drawing upside down. We drew upside down and did the blind contour to help our drawing skills. Instead of drawing something based on what you think it looks like, you draw what you see.
Positive/Negative Drawing: I decided to draw one of my favorite cars, the Nissan GTR. I had a ton of fun drawing this and was proud of myself after I finished although I wish I would've been lighter with some lines on this one. The negative space is the one half of the GTR where I tried to include the most detail possible.
Before/After Hand Drawings: In this drawing I focused on positive and negative spaces with value. Towards the tip of my fingers it was lighter, so I tried to do less shading there. I tried to include more value by having multiple shades by my palm and thumb area.
