During this quarter, we worked on five different projects in art class. The different projects that we worked on were the bike drawing, the optical illusion, shading forms, the eye drawing, and the mandala.
The bike drawing took the longest to do because we were not drawing an ordinary bike. The bike had to imitate a real bike with somewhat 3D features. I was okay with the outcome of my bike. The only thing I disliked was how long it took to color the bike.
The optical illusion was hard because I did not have the different pencils that give the drawings such a detailed look. I had to do the optical illusion over about three times before I got it right.
The shading forms were nothing like I thought they would be. I imagined them to be really hard and frustrating. After doing some research online, I was able to complete the shading forms with ease.
The eye drawing was also another project that I thought would be difficult. I wanted to make sure that the eye actually looked like my eye. I also wanted it to mimic an artist I had previously seen on Instagram that had created the most beautiful eye I had ever seen. I tried my best to do the same and I think I did a good job for my first time.
Last, but not least, was the mandala. The mandala was my favorite project because it was the most creative. I enjoyed adding my personal touch to the mandala and coloring it in was not stressful at all. It also reminded me of the adult coloring book I had been working on recently.
Overall, the quarter was not much to stress about. For the most part, the projects were pretty easy and not stressful to do.
