Portrait painting reflection


Posted by 22yuanl | Posted in Art | Posted on June 11, 2016

In art, we did a unit on portrait painting one of the people you know a lot about. I chose my friend Blake, he was in Nis. ( my last school) I went to NIS in 3rd grade and he went there in forth grade. We had a lot of fun and he’s always funny in class and gets in trouble because of that. For the plans, I drew a trampoline birthday party because he had two of them in two birthdays which means he really likes the trampoline parties. The trampoline was pretty hard to draw and when I finished drawing it, it didn’t really look like a trampoline. I’m also not very good at drawing faces so the drawing of him beside the trampoline wasn’t very good. I decided to keep drawing until I found a good idea, but as the same time, I don’t have anymore ideas so I decided to look on the internet. Then I saw a picture that I really liked by Yago. So I tried to do the same by putting an animal Blake likes as his head but the body is his own. That’s how I got the idea of putting a panda’s head and blake’s body together. I chose the panda because he enjoyed looking at the pandas in fifth grade so I chose his head to be a panda. After I sketched it on the actual paper, I had to paint it. painting the eyes was hard because I planned that there’s black patches of fur beside the eyes but that would be impossible to see the eyes so I drew a white circle beside the eyes. The shirt was a random jacket he wears sometimes. ( NOT YIS SHIRT) I tried to make the panda’s mouth smile a bit because he’s always happy and it wasn’t easy trying to draw a panda smiling.

Pictorial elements color, facial expression

I chose color and facial expression for the pictorial elements. I chose colours that would match against each other pretty well, I didn’t have to many colours because I didn’t really have space to draw the background but I don’t really need it. I did the facial expression pretty well. It kind of looks like the panda is smiling a bit. To be honest with you, I don’t even know how I managed to make the panda smile. Yago Partal influenced me in my painting. As I said before, he did many pictures of an animal head and a human body. I thought that was a good idea so I tried it myself. The plan wasn’t that good, the face didn’t look like a panda and looked a bit weird because I drew some tooth in the mouth, and the box for the plan was a bit small. However at the end, it turned out fine


Games review

This game is called financial soccer. It’s just like playing a soccer game except you have to answer questions to steal, shoot, pass, and save. You can choose where to pass and the difficulty depends on where the player is, so when you pass to a player making a run you have to choose a hard question or you can just pass it towards the back and have a easy question. If you tied the game, there’s penalty shootouts and the questions are true or false so you have 50% chance of getting it right. We play learn and have fun in this game. The questions are pretty challenging for medium and hard. I would recommend this to people who knows a lot about random things. I would rate tis game 3/5.

Movie trailer reflection


Posted by 22yuanl | Posted in Drama | Posted on June 2, 2016


In Drama, we were doing voice recording for a movie trailer. We spread into three groups of five, and recorded our voices for the trailer and we also focused on modulation and sound for this unit. Some of our trailers were short and some were long. The three groups chose Action, Horror, and adventures. Our script was quite short and our movie trailer was too. We did’t have too many kinds of music which is used to make this and because of that it didn’t take us too long to figure out the music. We had a Narrator for the story.

My best skill was talking really fast on the intense parts because if someone says things slowly on parts really exciting, it would make the audience confused unless the person is suppose to speak slowly and will always speak slowly no matter what happens. There should always be some slow parts and fast parts.  I said my parts even though our script’s are pretty short, and we managed to finish on time.

I should improve on writing my script more, try to understand the movie better, and chose a movie that almost everyone knows because Pia chose a German movie, and the rest of the group didn’t know German or ever watched the movie. It would be cool for the other groups to listen because they never watched the movie before but it would be hard for the rest of our group to write the script. I wrote as much as I can from the original trailer and from Pia telling us about the movie, but considering the fact how long the other group’s trailer’s were, ours was pretty short. I would definitely choose one which we all know a bit of and understand the language a bit next time. Also our movie wasn’t really action which was what we were suppose to be focused on, it was more of a teenage movie. From what Pia told everyone, the movie is about teenagers trying to find their dad and an evil woman is trying to find their dad too so the teenagers has to get their before the evil woman does…    I wouldn’t really consider that an action movie because if you’ve seen marvel movies, I think that’s more like an action movie, so I would definitely follow the topic we were suppose to do.

I would rate our trailer 5/8 because our trailer was very short and wasn’t really about the topic we were suppose to do. However, I think our music was pretty good and the exciting parts and slower parts.

3. Another movie trailer which was captivating was reeve’s movie trailer because their trailer was quite long and had a lot lot of things in it like Yestin being a news reporter on TV, mom and dad leaving, TV suddenly turns off, and Jared’s SCREAMING which freaked me out a bit. Their was also a music playing at the backgrounds with the ticking clock. I think they did very well on it, and you can probably tell it’s horror by now. I would rate theirs 7/8

blog post for economic plan

Economic plan

How can I save enough money to go to the beach and play?


The reason why I chose this is because I like going to the beach and I always have fun when I go there, I also like doing the things beside the sea or in the sea like going on boats and diving etc. Some of the things could be cheap and some of them could be expensive and there’s a lot of things to do at the sea. Even if I don’t do all the things, I need to save my money, research, plan.

To the nearest beach


Transportation options                                      

Train              235 Yen                                                                         



Car       ?                                                                             



activity options and costs


The equipment you need will include a scuba diving mask ($20-200), a snorkel ($20-100), scuba diving wetsuit ($100-1000), and fins ($50-600). The total cost for renting all the scuba diving gear will be $100

Boats   50

Fishing   0 if I bring my own fishing rod    it would cost around 20 to rent one                                                                          

swiming   0

Surfing   0 if I bring my own   50 to rent one

Kayaking  if it’s a decent one, it will cost aroud 60 to rent one.

Jet ski   half a day would cost around  $ 199  for half a day      

I would also bring  a lot more for other things.          










First, I need to investigate how much I need to go to the beach, activities, food.

Then I need to do chores to get money.

I will sell some of my supplies on the market.

I might even trade some things to earn money.

I will also need my savings and my allowance.


I don’t think I’m going to do it because I have to travel a lot for my summer vacation and have lots of things to do, especially in China because the beaches are too dirty, not many beaches, and their’s too much people. I would also stay at home most of the time because of the PM2.5. The other reason is because it’s too expensive to do all those things, and it would take a lot of time to get all the money I need.
