Value Art Portrait

This is my Value Portrait. To start this, we had to draw in all of the shapes that we saw on the picture, for example if you see a darker spot that is triangular shaped, you would draw it in. Then, we would add in all of the physical features such as the nose, eyes, eyebrows, and mouth. Next, you shade the darker parts of the picture, acording the they way that you had drawn your shapes. AS you are doing this, it looks slowly more like the picture you are drawing. I found the different values in this portrait by drawing in the darker shapes that i saw on the picture. this helped me to be able to shade it more acurately. I had a full range of values in my portrait by making the hair super dark, and starting darker on one side, and slowly fading of into white so that you can really see the shadow.I think that i did this picture pretty neatly and accurately, but one thing i would have changed on the way thati did this was make the shadows across his face a little more noticeable i didnt really think i did a great job of that. One really big obstacle that i had to overcome was the outline of the face. that was a really hard part for me to make proportional to the rest of the body.

Winnie The Pooh (on the inside)


                  This project was especially fun. We printed cartoons of the internet and
                 drew them onto our paper. Then we had to draw the insides of that character: the skeleton.
                   This picture turned out alot better than i had anticipated, and it was really fun to transform the cartoon so that we could see the insides of them. I think that i really did a good job of capturing the way
good job of capturing the way the inside of a stuffed bear looks. If we were to do this piece again, i would consider more of his skull, i really didnt try to do a whole lot with that. The hardest part about drawing the inside of pooh was the ribs. The ribs were really hard to make them seem as if they were curving, and that the had spaces in between them. I learned that when you draw something that has alot of small peices, you have to take the time to draw each induvidual piece to create how it would really look.

Moss Art Graffiti

                                                                                                                                                                                This is our moss art graffiti. We painted a mixture of moss, water, buttermilk,
                         and mud onto the side of a brick wall that got very little sun, because the
                         moss grows well in dark places. I think this project worked out very well
                       considering that we were painting with a mud and moss mixture. The hardest
                     part about this was making sure that you made it the picture dark enough to see
                      and that you didnt make it so dark that it drips all over the rest of your picture,
                     which would cause the moss to grow in parts that you dont want it to grow on.
                A big thing that this project taught me is that it doesn't matter what it is, you can create
                       are with anything you want. I would deffinently want to do this project again.
