I'm Tonia Brummel ,im in 9th grade and I'm taking beginners art to learn new art skills. I took art all through elementary and middle school. I want to go to college for Perfoming arts (like acting and entertainment) . I liked the new skill I learned in this class mostly positive and negative drawings.
These are my 3 portraits. My first portrait doesn't have any any value orcontour at all but, I learned that adding value and contour I defines the face you're drawing in your portrait and makes it look more 3D and realistic.
My lines were too dark in my second hand drawing ,but I've learned not to make contour lines to dark and not to outline .
My scratchboard was not my best but I learned that smaller details are very important in artwork. And I also learned that when you are trying to show texture in a piece of artwork you have to make sure it looks realistic and that you can't outline.
I learned that the vanishing point and the horizon line are very important in 2-point perspective because it add dimension to the piece.
Still life drawing was kinda hard ,drawing the different textures, dimensions, shapes, forms and values. It was a different experience for me because there was a light shining on it so, I had to draw value based on the shadowing of the lighting
