The hardest part for me when drawing these pictures was trying to drawing Kobrah because his face has a lot of angles to it, A LOT OF SYMMETRY. Then, if I drew the line of symmetry wrong which threw everything off about his face and it was hard to get it back together. It was also hard to draw his face because the angles on his face were even weirder, they weren't natural angles - they were hard angles. I think drawing hair is also very hard for me, I can not get the texture right for the life of me.
The drawing that i liked the most was One Point Perspective. I've always enjoyed doing perspective drawings because they are so simple, but they come out so interesting looking. It is like drawing what you see at different angles perfectly. I think it is just so amazing that somebody came up with a drawing technique like this because it is just perfect. I would draw my whole world in one point perspective. I also enjoyed doing the drawings of the smiley faces in perspectives because you can really see how the smiley faces become smaller in the background.
Each drawing had its aspects of being a hard drawing for me. It was first trying to fully understand how to draw the texture, which I don't think I could grasp by looking at the drawings. The second was trying to get the texture to look a lot dark in places than others because I wouldn't make the squirkles close enough to each other or I didn't have the correct weight of the pen. Another thing was difficult for me was trying to draw the face of the little boy, I think I have a hard time drawing boys instead of girls. Because in the drawings of the girls, they were really great.
Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the most brilliant artists in the 20th century. With his unconventional style of surrealist imagery, Dalí shows such imaginative and complex style. He truly birthed a new kind of art as he was an icon of the Surrealist movement. His art showed his world of raw human perception. He always inquested the unconsciousness of thoughts and dreams in his work. His influences were driven by Freud, Futurism, Cubism, and metaphysical art. Aside from paining, he was very diverse in other forms of art as well. He has been referred to as the "epitome of Surrealism." I personally love Dalí's work because his artwork, very much inspires mine in the way that it is imaginative as mine is.
I chose to do do 4 stages of El Salvador Dalí.
I also chose to do 4 stages of a german cartoon character that I was very fond of at a young age. Along with all of the above I also chose to make 2 sets of 4 stages for watercolor pictures and 2 sets of 2 arylic pictures.
2. Self portrait- Drawing myself is always really difficult, so I think this may have been the hardest one. I really liked working with the charcoal even though I can't help but smudge it absolutely everywhere.
3. Copy a master- I decided to copy characters from the film "The Secret of Kells" I love how that movie is animated, in motion it's even better than flat on paper. Again, sharpie was the most difficult, because there isn't a bunch of shading or anything I could do except flat lines and I think that was really hard to make look nice.
Here are my drawings:
Azota Filipinas uno de los tifones más poderosos de la historia
Antes de yo empiezo escribir, yo voy a definir algunas de las palabras nuevas en el artículo, “Azota Filipinas uno de los tifones más poderosos de la historia”. “Tifón” es palabra muy importante en este artículo; en Inglés “tifón” es “typhoon”. Ademas, la palabra “daño” es importante en este artículo. “Daño” se traduce en “damages” en Inglés.
Ahora, yo quiero resumir todos que está escrito en el artículo. En la semana pasada, un tifón llegado a los Phillipines. Por viernes, el tifón más grande en todo de este año llegado y hizo muchos daños. En los Philippines (más específicamente, la isla de Bohol) fue un terremoto el mes que pasado. En Inglés, terremoto es “earthquake”.
"Habrá daños catastróficos", dijo Jeff Masters, un meteorólogo experto en huracanes y que es director de la firma privada estadounidense Weather Underground.
Hoy, las personas que vivían en los Philippines tienen vidas muy difíciles. Fuentes de noticias dijeron que casi 4,000 personas murieron después del tifón Haiyan. Todas las personas estan espantados porque hay personas fallecidas en todos partes. Los personas que no murieron estan enfermos, pero ellos no tienen suficiente hospitales y médicos para todas las personas enfermas.
Países de todo el mundo ofrecer ayuda para los víctimas de tifón Haiyan. Organizaciones como “Red Cross” y muchos otros ofrecer dinero, comida, y cosas para los médicos. Ellos necesitan todos de la ayuda que nosotros pueden dar.

Eugéne Atget: Pioneer of Documentary Photography
Eugéne Atget was born in Libourne, France in 1857. He is so commonly remembered for pioneering what is known as documentary photography. This type of photography is somewhat very similar to street photography which is more common now. Eugéne Atget is remembered for his initiative to document all of the architecture and street scenes of Paris before they disappeared into modernization.
Like so many famous artists, many of his photographs weren’t published until after his death. He began to become recognized by other photographers just two years before his death.
Eugéne Atget’s parents both passed away during his young adolescence. His maternal grandparents raised him in Bordeaux and after finishing high school, he went into the merchant navy.
Atget moved to Paris in 1878. He auditioned for acting classes and failed the first time, and then was allowed in when he auditioned again. He was still drafted during the time he was in drama school, and he was expelled for only being able to be there part-time.
While living in Paris, he became an actor with a traveling group. They stayed in and around Paris still. He met his wife, Valentine Delafosse Compagnon, who was an actress in Paris. She died just a few years after they were married. Eugéne Atget gave up on his acting career in 1887, due to an infection of his vocal cords. After he gave up on his acting, he moved to the provinces and took up painting, but was not successful.
Realizing he would never have a career in painting, he still spent his life as an amateur painter. His first photographs date back to 1888. In 1890, Atget moved back to Paris. He settled down as a commercial photographer, and put on a sign on his door that read, “Documents for Artists.”
In 1898, Eugéne Atget began to specialize in what is known as “Old Paris.” This became his project for nearly 30 years. This idea of old Paris was a campaign to preserve and document pre-revolutionary architecture. Many of Atget’s photographs are of building facades and the streets of Paris, because he felt that he needed to document and archive the city before the construction of Paris Métro.
Atget stopped taking pictures almost entirely after the First World War (1914-1918). In 1920, Atget offered to sell a portion of his glass-plate negatives to the government. He wrote a letter to the Minister of the Fine Arts and wrote, “For more than 20 years I have been working alone and of my own initiative in all the old streets of Old Paris to make a collection of 18 x 24 [centimeter] photographic negatives: artistic documents of beautiful urban architecture from the 16th to the 19th centuries. . . . Today this enormous artistic and documentary collection is finished; I can say I possess all of Old Paris." The government purchased almost 3,000 of Atget’s negatives for 10,000 francs.In the 1920s, Atget became noticed in modern art’s avant-garde. This wasn’t long before his death in August of 1927.
