1.This is when you were in the lab. I used photoshop using scale and transform.
2.When you made a grid and drew it i looked funny, but viewing it from a different perspective, and adding shadows it looked 3d.
3. What were the most important concepts in the project to make it successful? You need colored pencils and value to make it look anamorphosis.
1. I changed the photo by changing the compostion of the picture so I could have more positive or negative space. I did this using photoshop and threshold.
2. I pick colors that would contrast well with my stencil color. and I placed paper on the carboard to make an interesting collaged background.
3.I used positive in negative space by picking dark background colors and have a white spray paint for my stencil.
4. When using the Xacto knife have to be careful so you don't cut yourself, and I hate using it because I didn't like how much pressure you had to put on it.
5. I loved the spray paint, I wanted to always use it!!! I just picked cool colors to use.

I spray painted!!! I made the stencil and cut it out, then we took paper and glued it on to the frame. I spray painted over the paper and even spray painted leaves on to the frame. Then I took my stencil and sprayed it on top of everything. Then I outlined it so it really popped. Oh and I painted the frame. That was all.

2. I picked dark colors against light colors so it really popped. It's important so you can see the stamp.
3. I used postive and negitive space by carving out part of the body and the background so you could see the image.
4. It's not that bad, except at one point of the drawing the giaraffe and the background kind of blend together, but you can still see what the animal is.
5. I don't really know, but you can tell that the animal is in the city which is cool. I don't really have a middle ground but I have a foreground and a background.
6. I don't like carving but I find that it's fun to use the ink. It is hard though to figure out what it will look like when you carve it out, and how you want it to look.

1. Because texture makes your thing pop and really look cool. Without it, it would just be a bunch of shapes.
2. So you can get different views of the animal and background so you can really see what the texture is, and so you can pick what view you like the best.
3. Yes, because the best print will be clear, so you can see all the areas that will be cut out and you can see all the texture in the sketch.

1. I got the picture that Mr. Sands had taken. I traced all the shadows, and then transfered it to my sketchbook. Then I took time shading in each area to make the potrait.
2. I found the different values in the portrait by trying to find shapes in the drawing. I would outline the darker and lighter colors so then it would be easy to shade.
3. I would like to think that I achieved different values in my potrait. But in reality it was pretty hard to get all the different shades in. I got lots of dark shading in but I didn't get all the in between colors.
4. Its ok, it wasn't my best, I found it extremely had to draw the eyes because in the picture there was some areas where I couldn't see anything so I had to try to draw it without all the right colors.
5. Ok so first of all my picture had some copying problems. In some areas I couldn't draw his one eye well because it was a white area from the copier. Also his hair was hard to draw because there was so much of it.

I loved this project! I thought the idea was so cool! Being able to paint with moss and then it grow, thats cool! I think if I had to do this project again I would pick a cool design or symbol to paint, like the nike swoosh because that would be amazing looking. I feel that this project was kinda successful because we got to paint with moss but we didn't really have any symbols or designs to paint but it will still turn out great if the moss grows.
