I don't have much art experience, I took art through out elementary school, but that was just easy art and I didn't have a choice, but I did enjoy it! And now I took one semester of begging drawing, and will take a semester of begging design!!!!
I have many goals, but I don't see any with art, other than maybe being able to draw neater and better... But with life goals I would like to be a doctor of some sort or a comotoligist, have a family of my own, move somewhere warm, and have a decent home.
Art class was/is very fun and calming, being able to just relax and focus on something is like a huge stress relief, and the pieces we worked on all were fun at some points maybe a little challenging but you get the hang of it , and that's what makes it so interesting and fun.
What I learned...
I learned how to draw myself and actually make it look somewhat like me..... I also learned to take my time and focus, and by doing that you'll get a better piece if you do so.
Negative and positive space.
This is my negative and positive space drawing, it may not be my best piece, but I was never able to draw a frog as good as this before.... "Positive space refers to the main focus of a picture, while negative space refers to the background. When used creatively and intelligently, positive and negative space together can tell a story using visual composition alone. "
I improved on contour and value the most... In my before drawing I didn't have any blended lines and very little contour. The value was way better too, the lines in my hand actually looked like creases in my hands and not just random lines that didn't make my hand look real.
Self portrait before and after.
I improved a lot on this piece, befriend it looked nothing like me, but my final piece looked pretty close to what I look like. All elements eyes, nose, mouth are way better and improved on my final piece, I focused on making them look real and more like me, I contoured and added value and it made it look way better...... And the placement is way more precise in my after drawing.
This is not my best piece.... My value and texture is not the best. I would fix them but on a scratch board you can't erase, so I tried my best. I learned that you have to take time and focus on scratchboard pieces to get good quality results.
2 point perspective
This is my 2 point perspective piece. It's a drawing of the gym wall/door corner. I focused on the horizon, In a drawing perspective, it's the level your eyes are at, an imaginary line to which things recede. Vanishing points, point toward which receding parallel lines appear to converge. Origin of vanishing point Expand. Horizontal lines, It is one-dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. Vertical lines, A line is an identifiable path created by a point moving in space. It is one-dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. This piece took time because you had to measure all of those points, but it was very fun!
By far I could have took more time and effort on this piece, the value in this piece isn't the best, but I tried showing it with darker and lighter dots.
The most successful parts in this piece is probably the wheel, you can see the value in it, the darker lighter shades, and the flower and vase, you can tell the flowers are in the vase, because the vase is lighter, and I did that by earsing it, but leaving the shape .
