I am Ariana Rodriguez and this is my first year of high school art. I took beginning drawing to improve my art skills because it's something I have been wanting to learn more. I am Hispanic and soccer is a sport I enjoy playing and watching. My future goals are to be a physical therapist or just having a job I really enjoy. I would like to attend a college in Texas. I think this class definitely was good and taught me to draw better. I learned that it isn't easy to draw and there are a lot of elements within a piece of art.
Above are images of drawings that were drawn with blind countor. These were taken while I was looking away. This revels how the line and placement of each piece matters in order to make the drawing look correct.
I think that my scratchboard was one of my least favorite piece to draw. Mainly because that was like the first time I had used that tool to form the image. It was hard to add value, but I know that I could have done much better on this drawing.
My two point perspective was one of my favorite drawings. This piece included cross hatching, horizon and the vanishing point. Cross hatching is a technique used to create shading effects by drawing close parallel lines. This made shadows in the picture. The vanishing point is where the lines need to all meet up to know they are in the right spot. Together these rules make the picture look real. For sure this drawing was made up of value and lines.
I feel that I did improve from my rough portrait to my final one. I added value and learned how to draw each piece that goes into a face such as the eyes, mouth, nose , lips ext. I learned how to blend the lines more.
