Pward Figure Drawing

​Well, this is my picture so far. I still have a lot to do...

So, I had a first attempt at the picture but it was trashed by someone I don't know. It didn't deter me, though. It just made me want to do better than the last time. The first picture was my starting of the new picture. All I had was the basic structure of my figure's head. It was easier drawing the head this time seeing how I did it when I did the previous one. The second picture is what I got done today. I was able to get some details on the face and a bit of the torso done. I think the female torso is really difficult, because on a female there are subtle or noticeable curves on the body that really set me off cause I can never make them proportionate on the body... that and I've been drawing mainly male anatomy for most of my artistic life and really can't draw females much...

Anyway, this is what I've got!

I am going to teach you how to be able to spell out words in both English and Spanish and so that you can easily interpret what is being said through spelling.

Tu v.s usted

In spanish convertations, keep in mind how to show proper respect to others.
 Tu is used for a causal way of talking, were as usted is used in a more formal way.
Tu you would basically use when you are talking to peers, friends, or anyone the same age as you. Usted is used when you talk to someone with an important title (say, the president) an adult, or someone older than you.

Here's an example between to friends-
images
SPANISH
​Amy- "Hola! Como estas (tu)?
Ellen- "Hola! Moy Bien, gracias. Y tu?"
Amy- " Mas o menos, gracias."
Ellen- "Adios!"
Amy- "Adios!"

ENGLISH
Amy- " Hello! How are you doing?"
Ellen- Hello! Very good, thank you. And you?"
Amy- " Regular, thanks."
Ellen-" Good bye!"
Amy- " Goodbye!"

Now lets see an example of a more formal converstaion between a girl and her mothers friend:



images-1
SPANSIH
Girl- " Hola, Como esta ( Ud.)?"
Woman- " Hola, Muy bien, gracias. Y tü?"
Girl- "Muy bien, gracias."
Woman- " Adios!"
Girl- " Adios senorita!"


ENGLISH
Girl- " Hello, how are you miss?"
Woman- " Very good, thank you. And you?"
Girl-" Very good, thank you."
Woman- " Goodbye!"

Now remember, the days of the week in spanish are always lowercase.

Say you go to write the date on your paper, but you forgot what day it is! How would you ask the foreign exchange student from cuba sitting next to you what day it is?

​It’s important to know your months and dates in Spanish. It’s not that bad, its basic stuff such as the twelve months, number of the dates, how to say, “today is…” etc. For example, you don’t know your friend’s birthday but you’re trying to memorize the dates and months in Spanish at the same time for school, or practices for whatever.

 Hoy es el # de _______(mes) : It’s the # of ______(month)

 

EXAMPLES:

 es el veintiuno de mayo

(It’s the 21st of May)

 es el once de junio

(It’s the 11th of June)



Video Task Introduction:

I was in mexico, and a boy name Brycen came up to me and asked what was the date of today and I responded back in Spanish to him saying the date was October 24. Here’s a video of something like this:

The Common Courtesy

 Have you ever wondered how you can be polite and well mannered to Spanish people around you? Being polite requires sayings like “excuse me”, “thank you”, “your welcome”, “please”, “farewell”, and many more. And here, this lesson will teach you how you can speak/pronounce and write courtesy phrases.

 Imaged if you were on the bus and you need to get off, you would politely like to say "Excuse me" in spanish to a lady who was speaking spanish on the phone earlier. Or you are in a store will a spanish spoken cashier, it'll be polite if you said "thank you" in spanish to the young man.
