For our final short unit, we were working on our portrait painting. For each person, they had their own subject, expression, genre and others.
My subject for the painting is Koki. I was trying to express him about emotion and feeling by the pose and setting. The emotion and the feeling is that he wants to play sports. I chose the setting as school and I chose the pose as Garfield. I made my character as a pixel art and I chose this because I think it was a cool art.
The color I chose for my painting was orange. My painting was more tertiary. I painted my character as more cartoonish. I emphasis Koki by pixel art and the rest of the drawing all are not pixel art.
I could tell the express by drawing baseball court instead of basketball court.
I think the artist and viewer are both important for because if there wasn’t any artist we will not have any picture from now and if there was no viewers then the artist might quit to draw art and it will be also no pictures.
At the art class, we’re doing about pattern and motif. Our first thing was to copy and draw traditional patterns and motifs. During our lesson we’re also talking about drawing our own patterns and motifs. However, there are 3 personal to draw about. Your hobby, cultural and creative thinking. Then I get my plate to really awesome. For my hobby I chose soccer because I thought it will interlock easily. For my cultural I chose Fuji and Japan war flag because I thought it will be easy enough to make another pattern in the motif.. For my creative thinking and cultural I chose the Ukiyo e’s wave art because I thought it’ll be awesome to have Ukiyo e’s wave and interlock.
I think I did very well on cutting the outline of the motif because when I glued my papers then it interlocked very well. I also did well on about Johanes Gutenbuerg. First, I didn’t really care about Johannes Gutenberg but when I keep researching about him I got lot of definition and I know that he is like our hero in our life because he made the very first printing machine. I also learned about Ukiyo e and I know that Ukiyo e was drawing the similar thing as Sky tree at past and now there are Sky Tree for real. I think I didn’t do well on cleaning wiping the wet brayers and the tray for ink because whenever I put the ink and use the brayer then some of the printing got wet.
Like I just said on the first paragraph for my cultural I chose Fuji and Japan war flag because I thought it will be easy enough to make another pattern in the motif.. For my creative thinking and cultural I chose the Ukiyo e’s wave art because I thought it’ll be awesome to have Ukiyo e’s wave and interlock.
I think the advise for next year Grade 6 is to not wet your tray for the ink or else the printing is going to be wet and your motif is going to be beautiful.
