Quarter 3 Art Work

In quarter three, everybody had the same curriculum for art, with the exception of an extra art project we had to create. My extra art project was a ceiling tile with the Wonder Woman logo on it, (who doesn't want a little female empowerment).  I made a traced it on the tile and painted it the traditional wonder woman colors.  The art curriculum this quarter took me out of my element with shading, which is not my best friend.  I worked hard to make artwork I can be proud of even though I'm very much more of a "clean" drawer.

Q3 Nmalik

I think this quarter I tried my best to work on not simple but hard drawings like insects. Normally I don't pay attention to such kind of drawings. But this time I took helped from online tutorial which help me a lot step by step. I don't consider myself as well at drawing but I think I need more practice. Because practice made perfect.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

One thing I learned specifically that I did not know before was the importance of the vanishing point in any perspective drawing. The vanishing point is used to create sides in 3D objects in a drawing, as a reference when drawing which parts of an object would be visible, and as a general reference for the position of everything in a space.

b. How did learning this make your project better?

Learning the importance of the vanishing point and the importance of orthogonal lines made my windows and tables look much more realistic and aesthetically pleasing. Though it took a lot of erasing, my whole project became 100 times better.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I did this assignment again, I would double check that all of my orthogonal went to the vanishing point before I darkened the lines with my pencil. I would also sit on the floor in a place where there would be less of a chance of people accidentally walking across and damaging my piece.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Draw orthogonal and draw boxes. Orthogonal are essential to making your drawing realistic. To make a 3D shape with those orthogonal, making a prism or cube like shape that can be your frame for the object. This will act as a guide when you draw the rest of the object. Also, it helps to get on your feet and walk around the space you are drawing to get comfortable with every aspect and perspective.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

My classmates helped me the most. It helped to work out problems with someone, and to learn from the hands and words of someone I am comfortable with and that I trust.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. One thing that I learned specifically had to do with the different view points and angles on drawings. I learned that if you are looking at something on the left side of the drawing, then it is showing its right side, and vice versa on the right side of the drawing.

b. Learning this made my drawings better because now I know how to make more realistic looking drawings using the vanishing point and how to make orthogonal lines.

c. If I did this assignment again, I would find a way to add better shading to the drawing. Also, I would use something else to take a picture.

d. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to always start your lines on a new object with the vanishing point, and let the size of the room guide you on the size and shape of the object that you're drawing.

e. The resource that helped me the most was the tutorial on how to draw the room because even after I finished the tutorial if I got stuck I went back to it to see how certain line were made in it and it let me get a good start on my drawing.

Final Perspective Drawing Green 2013 Perspective

One thing that I learned and did not know before was everything about the vanishing point and how that works. I had never known that was the way to draw pictures like this, and I thought you just drew it by guessing and what you see. Learning this make my drawings better because it makes them more realistic and precise. If I did the assignment again, something I would do differently is probably how I made my ceiling and floor because I had a hard time doing those parts and making the helper line. So I think I would have used a better method to do that then what I did. If someone was drawing their first one point perspective drawing, the advice I would give them is to take their time and to not be afraid to mess up because they will almost never get it right the first time. The resource that helped me the most was the slideshow that was on moodle. It especially helped me in the beginning because I was so confused and didn't know how to start, but that led me in the right direction.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
Before doing this project, I had no idea how to draw objects while using an orthogonal. 

b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better

If I had to draw this picture without know this, than I think that my shapes would not be perfect. I think that they would fine, but it wouldn't look as much like a real life picture.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

If I had to give advice to someone, I would say that you must use a ruler, and you must make sure that all of your lines are parallel to the edges of the paper, unless you don't want it to be.

Final Perspective Drawing

While drawing this room with a forward perspective, I've learned how to sketch objects like tables and door hinges as if I was actually standing and facing towards that wall. This learning made my drawing better by giving it a realistic feel. It shows the three-dimentional aspects of the room. If I were to do this entire sketch over, I would have outlined everything in a darker shade so the person reviewing it can see it easily. My advice to someone that has never drawn a perspective sketch like this one, I would tell them that it's not that hard. It's just a bunch of shapes and a lot of erasing. The resource that helped me the most is Ms. Hull's guidance power point. That helped me so much during this entire process.

Bailey Collins Quarter 3 Artwork and Photography

For the third quarter, we mainly learned about shading methods. Shading with just a pencil isn't very hard, but using the entire paper while attempting to use the value scale made the work more difficult than expected. After completing all of the artwork, we had to do an outside project of our choice. I am very interested in film photography. This has been one of my main focuses in my artwork for a long time now. During my spring break I learned how to develop my film in the darkroom. This was very interesting. I learned all about the chemicals that are used and how they affect the film to make the negatives show, and also I learned about why natural light on film will be so relevant in the final negatives. This was very interesting, but I hadn't expected opening the back of my camera would ruin my final images so much.

All of my artwork and images of my film are displayed on this Flickr photostream.

Final Perspective Drawing

This project, like many other I've encountered at SLA, has been both extremely challenging, as well as pretty fulfilling. During this entire process, I've learned a lot about both first point perspective, and the concept of messing up, and starting all over again. After completely rushing through the project, I ultimately faced major consequences, that being having to start all over. From this though, I found the error of my ways. Before getting some extremely helpful advice from Ms. Hull, I'd just thrown in whatever I could, in order to get the project done faster. However, this completely backfired. Anyway, after much trial and error, I finally managed to complete the project, with a product much better than the original. I guess something in particular I really learned was to keep going, even if things aren't really in your favor.

Learning this drawing helped my artistic skill more, by enriching me, and adding some variety to it. Before my art classes at SLA, I was stuck to drawing basic cartoons, and some manga characters, which isn't really impressive. I'd always wanted to learn how to draw things like full rooms, and not a sad excuse for one. While I'm still attempting to grasp the skill, I love the idea of improving well enough to have really impressive room drawings. This class has taught me something I'd never learn otherwise!

If I could do this project all over again, (which I technically did...,) i would pay a little more attention to the requirements at hand, then started the actual drawing, rather than getting what I could, not asking for help, then freaking out when given another chance. I'd also reconsider the color scheme. And definitely avoid markers, they only lead to trouble... 

To those ever interested in pursing the art of one point perspective drawings, should look into the following, before achieving those dreams. I highly, highly, highly, one hundred percent recommend both getting a good look at your subject, making sure you fully know what you want to have in your picture. Also, take your time, don't rush, have several pencils and erasers nearby, because there is no such thing as being over prepared. Lastly, when a teacher says draw from the vanishing point, you'd be better off to listen to that... 

My greatest resource had to be my peers. I'd be distraught, and in a complete frenzy, but they'd always be around to help me out, and offer some pointers here and there. However, my biggest one right now, has to be Ms. Hull. I really can't get over the fact that I was allowed to restart, even though my first outcome was awful. That right there, is called awesome art teaching. 




Below are my drawings. You can already see the immense difference between the last one. (first image,) and my first attempt, (second image.)

Final Perspective Drawing Green Stream 2013 perspective

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.

I learned about Orthogonal Lines and Vanishing point. I never knew it was so much with drawling. Usually when I see people draw they usually do it freely but Now I see it more to it.  

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

It made me learn better because it made me learn how to make things even out and look the same and connect. I don't have to wear about one side to big or limp sided now because now all I have to do is connect it to the vanishing point.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would fold my paper a different way because now my picture look all nasty looking. :/ I hate when things look nasty looking.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Make sure you know how to measure right and hold the ruler straight! It's very important for your lines to be straight because if not that can throw off your project.

e. What resource helped you the most and why? 


I will say my classmates and Ms.Hull. If I didn't understand anything I would ask a classmate and they was willing to help which was very nice of them.

One Point Perspective Drawing

A. I learned how to actually draw from 1 point perspective. I learned that you must have a vanishing point which means that means that all my lines on a paper that are not horizontal or linear must go back to the vanishing point.

B. It made everything on my paper look much more professional that it use to look when I did not use these tips Mrs. Hull gave us.

C. If I were to re-do the assignment, I would of done it on a smaller sheet of paper and finished it.

D. One piece of advise I have is LISTEN TO THE TEACHER! She is here for a reason. She has been doing this for years and she knows what to do. 

E. The best resource I had was defiantly Mrs. Hull's post on the Moodle page. It gave us step by step instructions to do our drawing. There was some stuff that was left out, but it was very helpful.

Final Perspective Drawing

One thing I learned in the process of drawing this I have learned was how to draw orthogonal lines that are straight and go all the way back to your vanishing point, making things look genuinely 3D.An orthogonal line is a line that connects to another line creating a right angle. An orthogonal line alone would just look normal and flat but when you combine it with our vanishing point technique then you get to see a whole new picture that has become 3D and seems to be real.This made my drawing better by giving my sketches mew depth. Before I learned about orthogonal lines all my work looked flat and dull but after learning and understanding how to use orthogonal lines it brought a whole new type of life into my works.If I where to re-draw this I would hang the way I colored the picture. I used crayon, which I thought would give the finished product a more soft look to it giving it a sort of flow making it easy to look at. Although I realized after I finished coloring that it took away from the meaning in my pencil lines, making the picture look childish overall. Tracing the lines with crayon was also very difficult, my lines came out different widths and lengths making quite a few of my lines appear to be tilted when they where not, taking away from the finished look.Some advice I have for someone who has never drawn in one point perspective would be, to sit down with your drawing and take your time, rushing will just make you frustrated, and that will make your lines crooked. Also don't be afraid to erase, you are going to make mistakes and your going to have to make lines in places that will get covered with other shapes. If you need to erase do so.The most helpful resource at my disposal I would say, would have to be my peers. I was unsure about what to do when I started drawing and I almost gave up, but before I had a chance a few of my classmates came up to me and got me drawing. When I would get frustrated and thrown my ruler and swear I was quitting my peers would calm me down and explain what I was doing wrong to help me finish. All in all without them I wouldn't have had the patience to finish my perspective.

Final Perspective Drawing.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

One thing that I've learned is that most 3D Drawings uses One-point perspective. I also learned that all of your lines must return to the vanishing point.
 

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

It helped make my drawings better becasue it showed me how to properly and evenly make the drawing in one-perspective. It also help me with drawing props in one point perspective.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would have to add color to my room and add more props.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My best advice is to someone is to practice, practice, PRACTICE! It will help for your final drawing. And also use your resources wisely.


e. What resource helped you the most and why?


The moodle slideshow because it hepled me get a better understanding of what to do and how to do it.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
I learned the use of new words such as orthogonal and vanishing point. 
b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better? 
This helped me learn because I could guide my self through the the rest of the drawing. 
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I could do this differently I would do this over. I would stay more focused in class and still continue to do good work.
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
I would advise never give up because there will come points where you will want to quit. 
e. What resource helped you the most and why?
Mrs. Hull was the best resource. She helped me when I was confused and frustrated. I also thank her for listing websites that also helped guide us when she was not available.

Quarter 3 Art Work - Kennedy Coverdale

Just like the last two quarters, our class has been learning how to draw by using Drawspace.​This quater was really focused on shading and hatching with just a pencil. I found this highly difficult because I've never worked with something like this before. Every drawing was supposed to look three-dimensional, which was really cool. The other difference with this quarter is that we had to do some sort of outside art project. I chose to do a ceiling tile to put my permanent mark on SLA. The ceiling tile is of the logo from Half-Life 2, one of my favorite video games.

Below is a slideshow of all the art work I did this quarter.

One of the things I learned that I did not know before was how to draw perspective

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.

Learning perspective let me make 3D room drawings such as this one and the other ones we made in your class.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I redid this assignment I would spend more time on the tables and the window

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

I would tell them to make sure that their orthogonal's are correct, otherwise you may have to redo your whole drawing if you don't catch the mistake early.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?


The resource that helped me the most was the slideshow because it showed me how to start my drawing.

Final Perspective Drawing - Green 2013 perspective

Doing this project, I have learned something really cool. A skill I’ve always wowed. I have learned how to draw in 3D. I never knew the technique and when others drew using this technique, I just gaped. Learning how to draw in one point perspective has made me a better artist. My art looks a lot more interesting and realistic. Learning this technique, I’ve become more advanced in this subject and I’ve also learned that hard work and determination pays off at the end. I got this piece of art created by myself, which I am really proud of. But if there was a chance to do this assignment again, I would first read the instructions clearly and use my class work time wisely. I feel like I tried to rush through some of the steps and thats why I messed up a lot. However, I’m glad that I didn’t give up. My advice for someone who is drawing something like this is to have goals, work your way towards them and don’t give up until you reach those goals. Use all the resources you have to make your drawing the best art you’ve ever drawn. I used rulers, the tiles of the floor to make straight lines, pencils, big erasers for my big mistakes, color pencils, and markers. All these tools together has helped me make an art that I call my finest.

Answers
A) One thing that I did not know before this art clase was that math and art can go hand to hand.
b)It helped because I'm usually very good at math so having a good understanding of how to use a ruer really helped me throughout this art project.

Final Perspective Drawing

I had no idea how to draw in one point perspective when I came to SLA. This project me taught how to draw things in one point perspective. I also now see things around the city, and think, “I could draw that from one point perspective.” I have have thought this befor, and this project has given me more confidence when it comes to drawing. This made my drawings better, because I never really drew other than scribbles in my notebooks. Now that I have completed a drawing, I want to do more. If I could do this assignment again, I would make sure I had more time to add detail and color. I used my time in class well, but I am not the fastest worker. I take my time to make things as best I can. Next time I would push myself to work faster while still doing the best work I can. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective work of art is that they make sure to be very precise, because if you only have one measurement, or line that does not look right, then your whole drawing looks off. In all honesty the most helpful resources I used was my ruler. When I first started the drawing, It was hard for me to envision where I would make my lines, or make measurements, because I did not have a very well developed artist's eye. The ruler helped me make my lines straight, and have precise measurements. After a while, My artist’s eye started to develop, and I know that the ruler I used played a part in that.

Final Perspective Drawing Orange Stream 2013 Perspective

Before I started this unit, I didn't know anything about art, except lines and horizons. When my teacher told my 9th grade class that we had to draw her room, we all we over whelmed. Before we got started, we did the basics. I learned what orthogonal lines were and how to draw figures and objects 3D. I also learned how to be patient and that messing up comes with perfection.
Learning this information helped me to draw my room. It helped me because now that I can draw things like helper lines, it can help guide me in the direction in which I am supposed to be.
If I were to do this assignment again, I would choose a different wall to draw. I would because I would like to know the process of each wall and how my classmates handled their art work.
The advice I would give someone who is about to draw a one point perspective drawing...? I would tell them to take their time, expect mistakes to happen, and be patient. All these things would help them to have a great drawing.
I would say my classmates and Ms.Hull helped me the most. I say that because without the help of others and the guidance of my teacher, I would most likely have a worst drawing.

Final Perspective Drawing - Blue Stream

A. During this project I learned so much! One of the most interesting things that I learned was then when drawing in one point perspective, I would only be using 3 types of lines: horizontal, vertical, and lines to my vanishing point. 

B. Learning about the three types of lines improved my drawing immediately. When I used a line that was not vertical, horizontal, or to my vanishing point, it wouldn't look realistic. I remember this because I had a random diagonal line while drawing my door. After changing that one line and drawing it to the vanishing point, my door looked so much better. 

C. If I did this assignment again I would definitely start earlier. Ten weeks is a long time to do a project so naturally in the beginning I did not use my time wisely. Then when it got down to one week left I started getting stressed out. So, if I had to do it again I would make better use of the time we were given.

D. My advice to a person who has never drawn a one point perspective would be to take your time and don't be afraid of your eraser! It can be really overwhelming to be told to draw a whole room in one point perspective. Especially to a person like me who has never felt particularly good at art. However, if you take it one step at a time it becomes much easier. You absolutely cannot be afraid of your eraser because during this project it will be your best friend. Making mistakes is apart of the process and things will get erased over and over again.

E. The resource that most helped me was the step by step presentation that was on Moodle. I would have been lost without it. The hardest part was starting, so having a guide was really helpful. By the end I got comfortable enough to figure it out on my own, but in the beginning it was a huge help!

Final Perspective Drawing

One thing that I learned is what/how to use the vanishing point. This helped me keep my in the one point perspective that was required. I think if I was to do this assignment again I would try and not be so "nit picky". I think this used up the majority of the my time. If I had just trust myself and kept what I drew the first time.
The advice I would give to someone else doing this project would to always use your ruler and make sure that it always stayed straight. If it is not the entire room will look off center. The three resources that helped me the most were Ms.Hull, the ruler and an eraser. Ms.Hull helped me figure out where everything went and how to put them there. The ruler then helped me get them there with beautiful straight lines. Then there was the eraser, I think I went through three whole erasers throughout this project. It was definitely my best friend. Overall this project taught me a lot about how to draw in one point perspective that I never knew before.

Final Perspective Drawing

a) One thing I learned from this project that I did not know before was how to draw a ceiling line. Also, I learned how to draw all different kinds of objects in one point perspective, not just tables.

b) These things helped make my drawing better because I could make the room itself look more realistic. In addition, I could include other details of the room in one point perspective.

c) If I did this project, I would spend more time on the details. I feel like I spent a lot of time on the “big picture” of the drawing. If I spent more time on details, I think I could have made the picture look fuller.

d) If someone was trying to draw a one point perspective drawing, I would say to them that they should always pay extra careful attention to which sides should be exposed in the drawing and which should not.

e) The resource that helped me the most was the slideshow on moodle. It really helped me figuring out where to start.
