Pre-assessment drawing of my portrait. I draw this pretty poorly, but I knew that we were going to learn about how to draw the eyes, nose, ears, etc. So I didn't worry about it to much. I mean my drawing did not come out to bad (yeahhhhh it is lol)
I'm really proud of this drawing because I did not think I would be able to draw something like this... I can still improve on a lot of it, but this portrait came out so much better than pre-assessment stretch. I learned how to draw the eyes, the noses, and the other features on a face.
For this hallway drawing, I don't even know how I did this. When I took this picture I didn't finished the shading yet so it looks a little weird. I didn't think I would do this and I'm pretty proud of this... I learned about perspective last year in intro to art but it was good to a refresher and to learn so new things. For example, the top of the pillar looks really hard to draw at first but after it was broken down in steps it was pretty easy.
1. Where do you see the most growth/improvement from your pre-assessment to your final? What most surprises you?
What surprises me is that my final project actually came out really good. My pre-assessment is not very well drawn, but my final came out good and I’m very happy about that. I made a lot of improvement since my pre-assessment because now you can actually tell that I drew a face and not just a big circle with some little doodles in it.
1. When looking at your final portrait, in what areas do you think you still need to improve?
I think I need to work on the portions of the eyes and work on noses because I am not very good at it yet, especially side noses. I think I did not do bad not he shading of the face, but I need to work on shading with a color pencil.
1. When looking at both drawing, what are you most proud of?
I am proud of my final, I did not think I was able to draw something like that. I was not able to draw faces before, but now I am not half bad at it.
Where do you see the most artistic growth?
I'm not sure where I see the most growth, but I made a lot of process on drawing faces. For examples, eyes, mouths, ears, noses, etc. I wasn't able to do that before. It turned out looking like a bunch of circles on a larger circle.... But I think thats where I think I made the most growth
What are some areas you're still struggling with?
Still the noses, but I can get better with practice. Also, the cubism project. I did not do well on it, at least i don't think I did. It just not my style.
What has been the most helpful to you in this class?
EVERYTHING! I just love learning new things about art. I'm glad I took his class. I now know what I like and what I don't like
What do you wish you learned that you didn't ?
Well, I liked learning about everything. It's good to learn new things but I didn't like the cubism project. Overall I liked most of the things that we learned. I don't like water color through.
I don't really know what to say for this. It was a cool project, but I did not really like it. I like the memory project. I really enjoyed drawing it.
