ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

On my first drawing, the still image line drawing, I used line, value and texture. I used line to create the illusion of form and draw the sparkling water can, texture was used to make it seem like the can was smooth and watery, and finally, value was used to make it come to life more by using shadows and texture. The size of the brush and the value connects because it cannot be too big, shadows need to be precise so putting the brush size smaller helps with that. My favorite part about the tracing that we did was probably drawing the details of the can, there weren't many elements but seeing the finished can was pretty satisfying to my eyes. The most annoying part was probably making the shadows, to replicate real life shadows into a drawing is hard for me, it might not be the case for everyone though.

My Landscape image was taken on Hanalei bay. One difference that I noticed between the landscape image and the still image was the thickness of the line, on the landscape image there are tons of different hardnesses and sizes of brush, another difference was the value, shadows were more realistic on the landscape than the can. I looked for a minute and did not see any significant similarities. The man that made the third video was probably the one that was the most experienced, my image looked much better when I did his tutorial. The other tutorials only made my photo look like a black and white image, so I followed the hard techniques of the third tutorial. It made my photo have more of a pencil feel to it, the shadows and the details looked like they were sketched instead of blurred.

My portrait photo was taken in Mr. Sanderl's class, my friend Nene and I were in a bit of a hurry since we did not have our photos yet, so he took a photo of me, and I did the same to him. This photo shows a happy guy having fun, Nene is my friend and looking at this photo makes me smile. We joke around most of the time so it makes me think of funny times. Line was used to draw my friend's details and contours. The closing parts of the elements was the element of shape, the value and texture gave more depth and feel to the image. The white space of the image was the element of space, form made Nene look more realistic and three-dimensional, and finally, the element of color was used with the gradient of color added to the line drawing part. I think my critique results are pretty fair except for some scores that I got. For some reason gave me a one on my still life even though I was one of the few only ones that had value and texture on it. I was satisfied with the rest and the only other thing that caught my eye on the scores was the mix image. I don't know why I got so many twos, I feel like I didn't deserve nine amateur points.

ACO 3.1 Analyze how elements and principles of design in various forms of media are applied to communicate to a specific audience. Elements of Art: Space, Line, Color, Shape, Texture, Form, Value.
ACO 3.2 Critique how the effective integration of elements and principles of design within a variety of medium impact target audiences. Gestalt Theory: Similarity, Continuation, Closure, Proximity, Figure and ground
ACO 3.3 Apply elements and principles of design to clarify, focus, or enhance a message or concept for a target audience. Principles of Design: Scale, Proportion, Unity, Balance, Harmony, Contrast, Repetition, Variety, Emphasis)
