Boys and Girls Ultimate: State Championships
Teams must qualify.
Surprisingly I did a good job on my self-portrait. I think that was my most successful drawing because I doubted myself before I drew it. Once I go the outline of of face I knew from that point on I was going to do okay. A good start off for me is a success. The charcoal drawing of the snapple was also successful because it looks exactly like a peach snapple bottle and I didn't have a hard time doing it at all.
Drawing for a week was a bit draining but because all of my drawing were done and successful it was intriguing. At first I really thought I was going to crack and give up. But once I finished one drawing and seen how good it came out, that pushed me to keep going.
Reflection : The countries I selected for tis assignment were Cambodia which is a country located in South/Southeast Asia,and Nicaragua which is located in Central America. I picked these countries out of curiosity so I was able to discover new information about each aspect of the five point framework. The five points that we ha to research on were fairly easy. Finding accurate and legit information was probably the only struggle that I faced. The hardest part of the framework was trying to locate "Hostile Neighbors". At first I though it was "Hostile Partners" and that wasn't it was asking for,so then I bad to start my research process again and didn't discover the information that I was looking for. If I could do anything differently,I would have started earlier because I didn't think this project was this tedious and required so much writing.Overall,this assignment was very informative and I was able to teach myself a lot of information that I didn't know prior to this assignment
In this project we had to learn some key things. One of those were the focus point. The focus point is drawn on the horizon line. The horizon line is draw from left to right on the piece of paper. The focus point is where all the things being drawn are drawn to. When things are drawn closer to the focus point the farther away they seem. That is true vice versa. Once we were done drawing we had to draw a box that would soon be the window. That was drawn by using the focus point as the origin point. Then you had to decide how long the tile spaces were going to be depending on how many tiles there are. Once that was done you had to decide how far the window was going to go down by using your keen eye. Once that was done all we had to do was draw everything you saw and detail it.
The easiest thing for me to learn was the concept of how to draw things that come out 3-d. For example when I was drawing the wall there was a part of it that came out of the wall. All I did was follow the vertical lines that came down from the ceiling.
The hardest part for me to learn was the math part of this assignment. What made it hard was that we used real math words in this learning process. To understand these terms you had to understand math.
this marking period I had a lot of difficulties drawing these pictures. I'm not
good at drawing from life and I am absolutely terrible at shading. The most
difficult drawing for me was the hand. My hand has two totally different shades
and it felt impossible to blend the two shades in like it looks on my hand. So
instead of having a nice blend of dark and light shades I had a straight line
dividing the two shades, making it look even more unrealistic. I also had a
problem matching up where the shades were on my hand. Where the division of
shades is on my hand is not a straight line so when I tried so draw the rest of
my hand it came out inaccurate due to the confusion of the lines.
The second most difficult drawing was the clear bottle drawing. The hardest part of this was, of course, figuring out where to shade the dark and light spots of the container. Anyone would think that a clear container has no dark or light spots because it has no color. However, when you look at an actual drawing of one you do see some gray and black shading here and there. Another problem I had with this drawing was the curves of the container. The pitcher that I was drawing had a lot of curves and detail and it was hard to make those visible the same way it was visible when I was drawing it. Also, the lines that went up and down the pitcher were sort of round so it threw me off when I was drawing it and made my lines look crooked.
Surprisingly, the easiest thing for me was the cluster of objects on the table. I personally liked this drawing the best. I did have some trouble drawing it, but it was not as tedious as all of the others. The shapes were much easier to make out than the others. The second easiest was the self-portrait. The problem that I had with the self-portrait however, was the shading of course. I had no clue how to determine the dark and light spots on my face so instead of applying more charcoal to the picture I just tried to bring out as much color from the sides as possible and onto my face and chest. It doesn't look like I shaded it that much but it is better than if I had applied more charcoal to the picture. Lastly, the full portrait that I draw of Trevor was in the middle. It was easy to make out the outside shape, but once I got to the actual detail drawing it became very complex. The eyes and the lips were all uneven and crooked, but overall I think I did okay.
que las personas en este mundo que trabajo duro recebien ciertas cosas se
merecen. Personas quiere tratar otras personas diferentes porque no viven un
cierta estilo vida entonces ellos son tratados como ellos no pertenecen. Creo que las personas no deben ser
juzgar por que de lugar donde viven o cuanto mucho dinero ellos tienen. Todo
personas debería tener mismos derechos viven y trabajan en el mismo país. Cosas
que debe hacer frente ahora que pensé que el cambio no esta siendo capaz de
cuidar de mi familia como quiero a. Otra cosa es que yo creo que esto nunca va a cambiar. Espero
que el cambio viene pronto.
The two countries that I've selected for this benchmark are Italy and Libya. Italy is located on the East hemisphere of the world. With a population of 61,016,804 , Italy is fairly small. Known for their exports of wine, oil, and wheat, Italy's primary exporter is Libya. Libya, located in North Africa is a country that is currently in great depression. In February of 2011, Libya's leader Gaddafi conducted his military to kill citizens and civilians protesting outside of his home. In order to gather information for my benchmark, I first researched current news, because currently Libya is one of the most "talked about" countries because of the Libyan Civil War. Italy has some relevance in the Libyan Civil War because they have taken in some of the Libyans because their country was in danger. My 5 point frame work was straightforward because the countries that I've selected to overview are "hit or miss" countries, meaning that either they are in danger of collapsing or not. If I had to change one aspect of my product, I would have made a video/typography like I had initially planned on.
