Advanced Drawing: Project #1
It was a very busy weekend, what with all of the homework and projects that I had to finish, as well as my daughter's 3rd birthday party. I never realized how exhausting just a few hours at Chuck E. Cheese could be. I was so distracted by the whirlwind of guests and organizing everything that I didn't take any pictures. A lot of my other family members did, and when I get some pictures I will post them when I can!
So, the first step was to take the first letter of my first name and type it into Google search. Then, I had to scroll down to the very bottom of the (first or third?) page and look at the last header. Of the words in that header, I had to pick one. Then I had to repeat this process for the first letter of my middle name, and my last name. The words I ended up with were demoiselle, word, and measurement!
After acquiring those three words, I had to enter those into Google search and then go to the Images section. From there, I would go to the 3rd page, pick a picture, then go to the 5th page, and pick a picture, and so on, and so on. The minimum amount of pictures we were to collect was 5, and here is a picture displaying what I ended up with.
After assembling all of our photos, we had to come up with a series of thumbnails displaying different ideas we had for a composition. From these thumbnails, we then had to construct a rough of what we wanted to do for the final draft. This is where we would work out any kinks or issues that came up. After the rough, we essentially had to do a miniature version of the final piece, but it didn't have to be severely detailed. This was done to work out even further what issues we were potentially having.
Lastly, we were to begin working on the Final piece, which was on a separate sheet of illustration board. To do mine, I first drew the basic outline of one half of the drawing. Then, because I desired symmetry, I used tracing paper and went over that entire half of the drawing, then flipped the tracing paper over and used a sheet of charcoal paper to transfer it over to the other side. This was the easy part! After that, all I had left to do was fill in the outline with graphite. I used mostly 2H, HB, and 2B graphite pencil, with 4B and 6B as I needed it.
