I didn't completely understand this project, like I understood using it to make it 3d but I didn't like coloring it, it works though because the dice are 3d so it did the job. I didn't like making the table it wasn't fun either was the color penciling part. But I learned that using a horizontal line and a dot you can make any three D object.

adidas bro

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.

for your amusement


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.

spray painting

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.

stamping bro

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.

printing project!! #holla

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.

chalk drawing!!

1. I didn't really like working as a team, I found that my group doesn't completely care, and I found that it was really hard coming up with ideas because nobody shared what they wanted to do.

2. Every should chip in and do some work, because if you work together the project goes much smoother and you can get work done faster.

3. I found that it wasn't successful at all, though we got the product finished I hated how it turned out and we didn't work together at all. I found that I was forced to do much of the work, and I didn't enjoy at all. It doesn't even look that good. :(

4. I think thats a cool idea, but they have to know what to do in the artwork. But ours you couldn't really tell what you were supposed do. And that is very dissapointing...

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.


Cartoon Bones

1. Overall I think that I did pretty well on this piece but it wasn't my best work. The arms and rib cage bothers me because his arms are coming out of his rib cage and it doesn't look right.
2. I think it was pretty successful, I can still tell that the skeleton is snoopy and thats always a good thing. He has all his important bones and it's semi correct for a cartoon skeleton. Also I had fun while doing this project and I feel my work is better when I have fun with it.
3. I liked how we could have fun with this project and that really worked for me. Because knowing I could have fun with it made me relax when I drew snoopy. What also worked for me was not having to be exact with all the bones.
4.If I had to do this project again I think I might pick a cartoon where he's standing up and not in a profile view. I found it harder to draw snoopy when I'm looking at him sideways because, it's harder to draw the ribs and hip bones when you aren't looking at them straight.
5. I found that making some of the bones realistic was the hardest part. Like drawing the rib cage and where the arms connect.
6. I learned to have fun with my art, and if you are more relaxed and calm you do much better, and it's easier to draw.
