Final Perspective Drawing - Red 2014

photo (4)
​a. While doing this drawing, I learned that being exact is necessary. If one line is missing, or not in the right angle, the entire drawing is messed up. I also learned that using the vanishing point helps you to make your drawing three dimensional. 

b. Learning these things made my drawing better because I learned to take my time and be patient. If you stress out, then your drawing doesn't come out the way you want it to. 

c. If I could do this drawing again, I think I would try to take a better picture to guide me through my drawing. I took my picture while the class was full, and it was a little crooked, so I had to guess a little bit. 

d. My advice is to take your time, because if you rush, it will turn out the opposite of what you wanted. Also, make sure your ruler does not have any dents because your lines won't be straight. Last of all, don't expect this perspective drawing to be perfect (if its your first drawing ever). No matter how hard you work, there will always be mistakes. Practice makes perfect!

e. Ms. Hull helped me a lot. She taught me how to find the exact middle of the page so I could draw my vanishing point. Her slide was also very helpful. She did a step-by-step slideshow of the perspective drawing. I understood everything, and it made my drawing easier to do.

Final Perspective Drawing

project (1)
a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
That in order to make drawing look 3D, the key is having a vanishing point and having your lines line up into that.
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
By learning that I was able to successfully add depth withing my drawing.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would focus more on detail, specifically shading.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
Always have a vanishing point and have you lines pointed in that direction.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Final Perspective Drawing ~ Green Stream

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

    

I learned that drawing in this type of perspective is more challenging than I thought it would be. Staying in one perspective. All I needed to know were three lines, orthogonal, vertical and horizontal.


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

  I learned that now doing art projects or projects in general require some level of creativity. It doesn't help to be sloppy.


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

   I would skip doing the rough draft, so I could get help with finishing touches.


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

   My advice would be time management.


e. What resource helped you the most and why?

    Ms.Hull's step-by-step guide helped me the most, because it was straightforward and simple.

Final Perspective Drawing

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

I learned a lot from this project. One of the most important things that I learned was the use of a horizon line and vanishing point to make objects look three dimensional and in perspective.

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

I felt that, after using these two tools, all of my objects looked real and proportional.

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

I would take more time with the details. One of my classmates did every last detail, and even colored the drawing in, exceeding expectations and going above and beyond. If I had access to materials as well as more time, I would do that.

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

I would tell them never to let go of the ruler. Their ruler is their friend, and they always need to be checking for angling, straightness, and connection to other points in the drawing. I would also tell them to use and trust their observer's eyes, see the drawing like an artist would, and try to figure out what 'looks wrong.' That can make or break a drawing.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Miss Hull taught me about using all of these tools, and helped me see things that I wouldn't have been able to see on my own. Also, she made sure that our drawings looked right, using her experience to guide us through this very difficult painting. In the end, rulers and pencils and erasers can only be used by a person who has been taught by Miss Hull.

Final Perspective Drawing, Green Stream, 2014

1. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing that I have learned is the vanishing point. The Vanishing Point makes every thing look 3D. It connects all the lines together. 

2. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
Learning about the Vanishing Point made my drawing look more neater and easier to see where each line connects. 
It made my drawing look more realistic. 

3. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I could do this drawing again I would focus more on the tables and chairs. I would also have colors in the drawing. It look very dull with no colors. 

4. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
One advice that I would give someone is that they should make sure to use a ruler. It makes the lines straight and look neater.

5. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resource that helped me the most was the slideshows because it had pictures to go along with the instructions. It showed me where and how I should connect my lines.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing I know now is that is how to make things appear 3-D and the vanishing point now is like a hero too me when it comes to drawing. My 3- D drawings were ok but they are much better now! 

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
Learning everything we did in the quarter helped me make this room without those practices and tips given in class I would not be able to do all this. This drawing would be worst than it is now which would be really scary I mean it's bad enough. 

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would make my lines darker and color it in without color sometimes I feel like something is missing and I wanted to color this piece as well but the thing is that some of the lines and parts would fade into the color and not be seen as much.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
I would tell them to learn how to make a vanishing point first of all! It can be hard to make something like this and it is but in order to get this done you need to know the basics of view like bird eye's view. Other than that your fine!

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

This site was a life helper I mean I knew how to draw most of the things but I forgot some easy things and when I looked at this slide deck it came to my rescue!

Quarter 3 Art - Dakota Foster

For this quarter, I didn't enjoy doing the drawings so much. Drawing people is very hard for me and takes a lot of time. I want it to be perfect but I can not get it there. However, I did like drawing with the colored pencils and not using a regular pencil at all. The pictures were more vivid and they made me smile because they were silly looking. For the lessons that had the people in them, it took me a lot of time to do. I wanted the proportions to be correct. Before when doing the shading, I couldn't ever get it right but with these lessons I started to get better at shading. The shading techniques were broken down better in these lessons and I started to grasp the idea of following where the light source is coming from to show the different highlights in the shading. My favorite drawing this time has to be drawing the hair in the man's face. It was so cute and the shading was broken down for me. I felt like I did a lot better this quarter. Also, to go with my drawings - I have some paintings that I have been doing. Hope you like it!

Final Perspective Drawing

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

I learned many drawing techniques throughout this project, with which I had no previous experience or knowledge. Orthagonals were a completely new concept to me. I didn’t know that these lines had any relation to each other. I had seen orthagonals before, and until now, I thought I was drawing them correctly, but Ms. Hull showed us how to draw them correctly, and what these “lines” are actually called.

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

Before Ms. Hull explained orthagonals to us, I depicted 3D figures by extending random lines behind the object to show that they were 3D, while now I know that all these lines in one drawing are connected by the vanishing point, and they are called orthagonals. And by using orthagonals, these lines are more purposeful.

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

I would’ve added color to the drawing, if I had the chance to do it again. The color would have enhanced the aesthetics of the drawing and I could have used them to draw shadows and emphasize the 3D nature of the room.

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

Use a ruler! Of course, it’s important to know what orthagonal lines are and what a vanishing point is, but with these techniques in mind, simply using a ruler can make your drawing much much better, and more clear. You cannot make orthagonal lines if they’re not straight!

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

I used many resources for my drawing, and each one helped for a different part of my drawing. For the actual drawing of the assignment, the website Ms. Hull provided was very helpful. I don’t think I could’ve completed the assignment without it. Using the website prevented a lot of the mistakes which I would have made if I didn’t know how to draw the room correctly. I referred to the website many times throughout the process.

Final Perspective Drawing Read 2013 Perspective

a) I learned how to make sure that when drawing all the objects all of them go back to the vanishing point.


b) By learning this my painting looked well balanced and everything drew back your eyes to the center of the drawing.


c) If I did this assignment over again I would add more details to the drawing. I woulds also add shading to further enhance the drawing.


d) My advice to someone who hasn't done a one point perspective piece would be to make sure certains lines lead to the vanishing point.


e) I think the slide that helped set up the one point perspective helped the most  because this helped make sure that everything was started correctly and showed most of the steps for what fixing problems.

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

One thing I learned while doing this project that I didn't know before was that vanishing points existed in perspective drawings.

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

Learning that helped me complete a better drawing because you realistically cannot complete this drawing without a vanishing point.

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

If I were to do this assignment again, I would use color in my drawing.

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

My advice to someone who has never done one point perspective drawing would be, ALWAYS use the vanishing point!

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resourced that helped me the most was the in class line activity because it taught me about all the different line types in one point perspective drawings.

Final Perspective Drawing

2014-04-18 23.25.43
This is my 3rd quarter drawing project. I had learned many things that I did not know before. I learned how to make draw and make objects appear 3-D. I was never good at 3-D drawing, especially when it came to objects, but now I feel like I had mastered it to my liking. Most importantly, I had learned about the vanishing point.
Those things that I learn are all connected as one thing, because without knowing them, I would never had been able to draw anything close to what I had did. There are simple rules that are needed to follow and I felt that the vanishing point, and although it's small and does not appear in the drawing, it's what actually helped create the drawing itself. 
If I was to do the assignment again, I would certainly color it in, darken the edges and lines, and shade it in. I feel that would make my drawing more eye catching and add a nice mood to it. I believe colors can really make a piece of drawing come alive.
One point perspective drawing can be very challenging, but I feel if you know the basics, such as what the vanishing point is, birds eye view, worms eye view, etc, is basically all you need to know in order to make an awesome one point perspective drawing!

Resources that helped me a lot throughout this drawing would be the link, my art teacher, Ms.Hull had provided us, and the lesson she had on drawing room. I feel that having a helping start such as learning how to draw doors and windows helped a lot. Also the link, "Prospective Step by Step" was actually step by step on how to draw the room that Ms.Hull had did herself. I felt that without it, I would be really lost when drawing, especially when it comes to drawing windows. The link and Ms.Hull's help was all the resources I used and felt I needed. 

This drawing assignment was surprisingly fun for me, and I never thought I could draw something, especially not a room! Yet I did and had all the help and materials I needed.

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

I say one thing that I learned specifically that I didn't know before is that I can basically draw a whole room simply by just drawing lines. 

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

Learning this totally made my drawings better by them now having a visual balance of neatness, cause usually I'd just draw out of random with curves and whatnot. 

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

If I did thus project again, I'd spend more time on it and add much more colour... cause colour is awesome. Also my stools, cause they look stubby and out of line. 

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

My advice is to make sure everything lines up with their vanishing point... cause at first mines didn't and I had to start all over. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource that helped me the most is my eraser and google. Why? because one for my eraser it made all my ugly mistakes vanish and well google I looked for some examples to help me along the way so yeah.

Q3 Art

For this quarter I tried to focus on my sketching skills. For this quarter I only used pencils, color pencils and water color. I also tired to bring some fashion into my art drawing under clothing. (*I tried many thing to make the pictures turn but they would not please forgive me)

Final Perspective Drawing

IMG_2055
In Art so far this quarter, we have learned about drawing in perspective. Before learning it, I barely knew how to do this. I didn't know what a "vanishing point" or a "horizon line" was. Those are just some of the terms we learned in Art. Using these terms are basically making drawing in perspective a lot easier and correct. In my drawing, without a vanishing point, my drawing would not be correct and it would be harder to draw it. In this drawing there are a lot of things I would change. I would've drawn it darker, it looks a lot better in real life than in this picture. I'm sure I made mistakes that I can't really identify. If I were to give someone advice on perspective drawing, I would definitely tell them to take it step by step, follow the rules of perspective drawing, and inform themselves on what a vanishing point, horizon line, ect. is. The resource that really helped me the most is the Slideshare on step by step of the wall, it really showed me what to do in order and what was important, I don't know what I'd do without that.

One thing that I learned about during this project that I did not know before is how to draw orthogonal lines from the vanishing point to any point in the room. Learning this made drawing much easier because I could draw the table as well as the windows in three dimensions. If I did this assignment again, I would improve my observations of the room. I didn't pay much attention to the actual placement of the tables or the stools. My advice to someone working on a perspective drawing would be to always start at your vanishing point. I made several attempts to give a window its depth without bringing the ruler back to the vanishing point, and this is an obvious mistake. Ms.Hull's tutorial and the Instructables one point perspective resource helped me the most in the completion of this project.

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

One thing I have specifically that I've learned was how to make things look more realistic. Especially 3d models. I have learned how to create 3d models and how to make them look like real. 

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

Learning this made my drawing better in important ways. It made my drawing look even better and it really looks like how the room looks like in real life!

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

If i did this assignment again, I would try to color it was it look in real life. 

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

To that someone would be not to rush it too fast. And if you make mistake it's perfectly fine because then you will learn from it and make it look way better! Also know about vanishing point to make your drawing better and more attractable. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Resources that have helped me was the one resource that we got from Ms.Hull. It showed how to do step my step drawing and what are possibly the consequences that we might have to face. Plus resources that have shows 3D models and how they are done.

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

One thing that I learned is the simplicity of the drawing because all you have to draw are three kinds of line: horizontal, vertical, and orthogonal lines to make a whole entire drawing of the art room. I also learned the importance that a vanishing point has on you project. This is because it really makes the drawing look realistic to a eye that looks at it. Another thing that I learned is the importance of a ruler and making a nice and neat straight line because it makes you picture look a lot better. 

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

By learning this things I was able to look at the room and just see the rectangles, orthogonal lines, horizontal, and vertical lines. So learning these things above really allowed me to break down the room into something more simple. Also learning the importance of different tools allowed my drawing to be better because it was more sharp, clean and neat.  

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

If I could do this project again something I would do differently would be to tart in the back wall and then do the side walls. This is because by doing that I have a better perspective of the relationship the things that need to be drawn on the side walls have to the back wall. In other words I have a better idea of how to draw the other things in the room by doing the main back wall.

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

If I were to give someone advice on this drawing that was doing one perspective for the first time I would say yes it is hard. However when you feel like you just cant do it anymore and you want to tear you hair out you need to push through that and just breath because you can do it and can get it done. Another thing I would say is when you are looking at the drawing don't look at the final idea of how you have to draw the room. Just think about each line that need to be drawn and by the end of each step you take it will turn out okay. Because I know I was so stressed because all I was thinking about was the fact that I have to draw the art room but is you think about it, it is just three lines being brought together to make the drawing. No stress

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resources that helped me the most was the step by step walk through of the drawing of the room. However as I have talked to many of my classmates some said that it just confused them more so it all depends on the person because I found it helpful to me drawing mine. Another thing that I have that I found so helpful was my dad because he taught perspective drawing for many many years and majors in it so if you have anyone in you family or friends that can help don't be afraid to ask.

Final One-Perspective Drawing

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

In the time of completing my one-perspective drawing, I learned a lot about the different types of lines. When I first heard about the 3 lines that are used to complete this drawing, I'd never heard of an orthogonal line. Yet, I then learned that it's basically a fancy word for a diagonal line.

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

It helped my work look more realistic and advanced. For example, when making things for my drawing 3D, it helped to use each of the 3 lines, rather than making up shapes.

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

If I had to complete this project again, I'd definitely use my class time more wisely. ANother thing regarding the project that I would do would be to take more time to make my floor tiles more precise and accurate.

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

My main advice would be to take your time. This project took a lot of trial and error, drawing and erasing,and etc.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The one resource that helped me the most was my brother. He refused to draw anything on my paper, but when he'd draw an example on a blank piece of copy paper, it really helped me understand how to draw the specific thing that I had trouble with.

Prior to beginning this project I’d never heard of one-point perspective drawing, or a center point. But with this new knowledge, my drawings became more spatially logical - meaning things were proportional in relation to distance. If I had to do this project again, I’d focus more on details (verifying if lines were truely horizontal/vertical, how to draw stools, including drawings on ceiling panels, etc.) and I’d try to include more things from the right wall of the drawing.

Some advice I’d give someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before is: always use the center point - even if it looks correct double check, because usually it isn’t. Also, I found http://www.olejarz.com/arted/perspective/ to be the most useful resource during this project because it was simple and straight-forward.

1. One thing I learned specifically during the process of drawing the room was how to make things appear as if they are out of the paper. I used to to if I’d ever draw make it all flat. This skill will help me in the future by helping me draw things for the rest of the school year in class.


2. Learning to add 3d to make flat shapes helped my drawings because otherwise I don’t have an image of a classroom. Are classrooms flat? Is the environment of a classroom flat? Is our vision? No. Making my work 3D has shown the real parts of the room we see every b band. I would fail if I was unable to make my drawing 3D.


3. If I did this assignment differently, I’d love to find a better way to make a table and chair. I had a hard time and look somewhat poor. There is always room for improvement, otherwise why would we be doing this?


4. If I were to tell someone about perspective drawing, I’d say panicking is the worst thing to do. When you really work it starts looking special but just saying how do we do this impossible work will do nothing but hurt the potential of your work and educational discipline.


5. A resource that helped me other then time was if you were stuck you could ask a friend to assist you in whatever you need help in. I needed help with my window to the left. I asked a friend how I go about doing that and it helped a lot.

Portraits: Bailey Collins Q3 Art

The last few months I have been practicing portrait photography. I have researched the style and technique of some of the greatest portrait photographer. This type of subject is really hard for many photographers to master. It is often out of a comfort zone. I have taken photos of my friends. Photo shoots on adventures in the city. I spent a lot of time discovering an interest in street style photography as well. This would be documenting any interesting subjects I find. I have been learning from the style of the greats such as Susan Sontag, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Arbus, Cecil Beaton, and Edouard Boubat. These people have an eye for illuminating the beauty and oddness of the human body and shape, and especially emotion.

Diane Arbus: Portrait Photographer


Diane Arbus was an American portrait photographer. She was known for her black-and-white images of odd or marginal people, such as circus performers, transgenders, and dwarves.

She was born in 1923 in New York City to a wealthy family. Her parents owned a popular department store on Fifth Avenue, called Russek’s, who specialized in furs. She wasn’t affected by the Great Depression during the 1930s. When she was eighteen, she married her childhood sweetheart, Allan Arbus. They had two daughters together, Doon and Amy.

Allan went to school for photography. He was a photographer for the Vietnam War for the U.S. army Signal Corps. After the war, he became a fashion photographer for ads, commercials, and Russek’s. Diane played her role as her husband’s assistant and sometimes fashion stylist.

In 1956, Diane quit the commercial photography business to study under another photographer. She worked on assignment for Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire. She was doing her own photo projects in her freetime. This is when she began developing her own type of style and artistic interests. The separation from the business eventually led to their marriage separation in 1959.

Diane’s style of photography wasn’t simple. Each image was very important and thought through. She would spend weeks with a subject, following them home, and talking or listening to them. Diane Arbus took some of the most influential and honest portraits ever seen, and she was never very well known for the beautiful work she did.

In the 1960s, she taught photography at Parson’s School for Design and the Cooper Union in New York. Her first big exhibition of her work was at the MoMA in 1967, it was called “New Documents”.

Diane Arbus experienced depressive bouts throughout her life, sometimes changed her mood, or caused by symptoms of Hepatitis. July 26, 1971, she committed suicide in her New York apartment by taking barbiturates and slashing her wrists with a razor, she was 48 years old.

Recreation of some odd marginal type model. I tried to make the image hold sincere strong emotion, with a relaxed setting and took them in black and white.

Annie Leibovitz: Portrait Photographer


Annie Leibovitz is considered one of America’s best portrait photographers. She trademarked her style very early in her career when working for Rolling Stone magazine.

She was born October 2nd, 1949 in Waterbury, Connecticut. Her father was a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force. Annie and her five siblings moved around a lot with their father’s assignments. Her first pictures were taken when her father was stationed in the Philippines during the Vietnam War.

She studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. After college, she worked different jobs while she was experimenting with photography, including volunteering at a kibbutz in Amir, Israel during 1969.

In 1970, she applied for a job at Rolling Stone magazine, Jann Wenner was so impressed with her portfolio, she was hired as a staff photographer. Within two years, in 1973, Wenner promoted her to chief photographer, the position she held for 10 years. When Leibovitz was working for the magazine, she was given the opportunity to photograph some of most influential musicians and celebrities in history. She had a style of portrait photography that used color so intensely for mood and poses of the body that wasn’t being published anywhere else. She produced some of the most thought provoking images of her time. Her style of photography made a very specific image for what we know and love about Rolling Stone magazine and their photographs.

She is most well known for her photograph of a nude John Lennon curled around his fully clothed wife, Yoko Ono, taken on December 8, 1980, just hours before his death.

Leibovitz left Rolling Stone in 1983, began working for Vanity Fair. Her subjects were more ranged when she worked for the entertainment magazine. This is where she took the iconic images of pregnant, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg submerged in a bathtub of milk.

In 1987, she won a Clio Award for her portraits for an American Express “Membership” Campaign. In 1991, her collection of black-and-white prints were put in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.

She has had exhibits, nominations for prestigious awards, books of her work, all that are glorifying the incredible images she has taken throughout her life.

This recreation would not have a real celebrity, so I took photos of a more applicable subject/model.
