The objective of this project was to learn about and experiment with different types of lines we can use to compose a space/an artwork. We learned how to create value with lines by changing how we spaced them and how thick they were. Other elements of art we used in our artwork were SPACE & VALUE. We used space to make things look far or near in perspective. We used value to make our lines look darker or lighter. This element especially enabled me to create a sense of Depth. When we made our lines darker, the structures looked bolder & nearer; when we made the lines lighter, they looked more vague & far away. There was also a similar effect for how far we spaced them apart, etc. I think I was pretty successful in creating DEPTH in my piece. If you look at it from a distance, you can really see how it recedes into space. You can recognize that the farthest point in distance is right in the center, and it's nearest around the edges. The foreground, middleground, & background is clearly discernible. Overall, I feel pretty satisfied with my final copy and the overall project. I liked making the little thumbnails. Copying & enlarging my thumbnail was a bit challenging and frustrating because it was hard for me to make the same product twice. Sometimes I would not see a mistake until it was almost finished. Despite that, I think my artwork was really good; it looked sort of like a cool illusion. In conclusion, I learned a lot about how to use lines,& space to create depth & value.
My drawing had a lot of emphasis on depth. I try to use space so the lines looked very far back and far forward. I also used a lot of value and texture to show and feel what this picture is really like. One of the things I like the most about my drawing is the variety. I tried to use curved, straight, thick, light lines and lots of shapes. I used a 5 1/2 by 4 inch composition to plan out the picture then I copied it with a light X through a full sized piece of paper. I didn't realize until halfway through the drawing that if you look at it sideways, the side with the half circles looks like hills and as it's going up it looks like it goes into the clouds. I would like to have taken a little more time with the texture because it looks like pencil marks instead of organized shades. This is my first art project this year and I hope I'll get better as the year goes on.
My favorite part about this artwork is my favorite part of my silhouettes. This silhouette I like very much because I feel its most interesting. This piece was also most difficult because there are many sharp edges. my favorite part of this piece is the girl all the way to the left. She was my first sketch and I think she looks the best. What I do not like in the piece is the deformed swirl at the very bottom corner to the left. I think the swirl looks way to deformed and I wish I worked harder on it. If I were to create this piece of artwork again I would probably try to make the girl on the bottom look less like a man and I wish I would've worked on her feminine feature a little more. The process was a lot of sketching and planning for this out come it was difficult but over all I am proud of this outcome. Some concepts I have learned are it is very hard to cut round edges with a razor sharp tool and to be more careful of the placement when you are gluing. What surprised me about this artwork was even though some of the cuts aren't very graceful, just looking at some of the pieces in this piece makes it relaxing and graceful. I like cutting paper and so on, but I much rather prefer collaging, sketching, drawing ,and even painting.
I like to draw because it makes your mood peaceful,calm, & relaxed. If something inspires me it means something to me or it has something to do with nature because nature is what makes this world beautiful. Something unique about my drawing is that I used value at the bottom of my picture inside my curvilinear & rectilinear lines. The curvilinear lines at the top of the drawing produce movement. I also used elements of art in my drawing such as value,line,shape,and space. Something I like about my drawing is that it has movement and it makes you jump around the drawing. I learned that value makes a drawing more interesting.
The objective of this project was to use lines to create depth, which I tried to do by creating lines with different values going back into space. After looking at my artwork I have decided it looks like the sun over the sea even though that is not what I was going for. I like the final product because it turned out to be something better than I was going for.
This composition is made entirely out of lines, rectilinear lines and curvilinear lines. I used lines to create my composition because when I overlap lines, I can create the effect of shading, texture, and depth. In my drawing, the main element of art that I used was shading. On one side of the paper it starts white, then fades to black. I think that I was very successful with creating depth because I have three layers of depth; the curvilinear lines, rectilinear lines, and background/space. Shading allowed me to have depth because it created the impression that things are behind other shapes. Overlapping shapes also created depth. I enjoyed the process of using lines a lot, and I really liked how my final product turned out. I liked how the final product turned out because I added many elements of art like balance in the composition, gradation, line, shape, and space. Those elements of art made the composition look complete.The main thing that I learned from this was that drawings should have foreground, middle-ground, and background. I also learned that thumbnail sketches really help me when I enlarge my drawing.
The objective of this project was to contrast lines in different ways. I used my lines by creating dark and lighter areas, and I made space between the lines. I used texture with the lightness and the darkness of my shapes.
An element besides line that I used in my artwork was value. I created my shapes by using shading, going from lighter to darker.
My composition does not show a whole lot of depth. Most of my pieces that I drew are flat so my shading is one-dimensional. Even though it didn't really look 3D, the darkness around the shape on the light boxes I drew really stands out and makes it look bold. The element I thought enabled depth was texture.
I felt very good about this project because I thought I did really well on it. I liked the process because I thought it was really good practice for me for the future and that it was really fun while doing the thumbnail. I love my thumbnail drawing because I thought it was the best one I did out of all of the three I drew. Also, I thought I put a lot of detail into it. I learned that when you color in something in pencil you should color it in the same direction that the line is going.
