Scratchboard Activity Log

Posted: November 9, 2010 in Activity Log

The scratchboard drawing was definitely one of my favorite drawings that we have done throughout the other drawings.  In my opinion, the scratchboard drawing was definitely more unique than the other drawings.  I liked how we had a lot of freedom to draw mainly whatever animal or human we wanted to draw.  In my case, I chose a U.S. Army Ranger to draw.  At first I thought the task was going to be very difficult, but it turned out to be an exciting challenge.  The tools used in this drawing were probably the hardest part of the drawing.  I found it hard to take out chunks of the scratchboard without ripping the actual scratchboard.  In the end, I thought my drawing turned out pretty good.  I applied good scratches and I think I had good detail for most aspects of the drawing.  Overall, this assignment was one of my favorite drawings so far.

 

2 Point Perspective Activity Log

Posted: November 2, 2010 in Activity Log

 

The 2 Point Perspective drawing was a fun assignment, and I learned a lot about drawing in 2 Point Perspective.  While drawing this assignment, I followed the golden nuggets and tried to perfect my drawing the best way I could.  I established a good horizon line and maintained a vanishing point throughout the whole process of drawing this piece.  The golden rules helped a lot while drawing this piece, and I always looked to them if I was lost or needed to know what to do next.  In the end, I liked the way my drawing turned out except for a couple of things.  I may have shaded my drawing too much instead of using lighter shades, and I also could not figure out the best way to give the dome a 3D shape.  Overall, I liked the 2 Point Perspective drawing and I learned about more skills when drawing in general.

 

1 Point Perspective Activity Log

Posted: October 19, 2010 in Activity Log

In my opinion, 1 Point Perspective is an awesome way of drawing things.  It actually amazes me how everything in 1 Point Perspective works.  At first, I was a little bit confused about the vanishing point and how all the lines connected to it, but after I actually got to work with the drawing, I realized that everything basically pieces it way back to your vanishing point.  I found this concept to be pretty amazing, considering there is only one vanishing point but multiple lines that connect to it.  Another cool thing while doing this piece was scaling.  I thought it was pretty awesome that all we had to do was measure something that we needed in our piece, with our ruler.  This definitely helped my drawing out on the realistic-side. One of the difficult parts for me was the roof.  I feel as if the roof in my drawing is a little off-aligned.  Overall, I thought  1 Point Perspective was a cool, unique way of drawing.
