We talked about tutorials this unit. We found out about good tutorials and how it is good. Then, we did a small research about tutorials by ourselves. I looked at a few tutorials and I found out that even one tutorial means a lot work to someone. I looked at Kate’s and Layna’s blog and commented on the tutorial they posted on their blog. It was a nice unit to start with.
Looking at Layna’s blog, I can learn how to draw adorable hamsters. This tutorial starts with a small sign saying that the creator is drawing a hamster so it helps a lot.The advantage of this tutorial is that the steps are very simple and the creator gives examples of the shapes so anyone could draw it well. Also, the creator uses a dark marker so the picture of the hamster stands out better.What I really thought was really helpful was that the creator gave a link to her website so anyone could go to her website and watch more tutorials from the same creator.The volume of the creator’s voice was very low and was difficult to hear them.In conclusion,her video is perfect for beginners because it has many advantages and little disadvantages. Looking at Kate’s blog,her tutorial teaches you really well how to draw a manga eye as it says on the header.The good thing about her tutorial was about how the creator explained the steps one by one clear and simple definition. The disadvantage about her tutorial is that the creator didn’t show what kind of pencil to use when you draw a manga eye.In conclusion, I think this tutorial is very useful especially for beginners. If I need to learn how to draw a manga eye,I would definitely look at hers!
I learned that the perspective from the creator and the audience is different. If I was to create a tutorial, I would like to make one that the audience would enjoy. For example, link to blog or, use dark marker so it is easy to see.
I would need to learn how to take a video of my tutorial. Also, I want to know how to add voice and edit the tutorial.
In conclusion, I learned many skills and tips on how to make a good tutorial. This unit was interesting and fun. I enjoyed this investigation. I can’t wait till the next unit.
