Unit 2 art refection

P.1Things that I did good

In this unit I feel like I have been doing good on my interlocking design and the ideas because from the others they said it looks very good and one even said it was the best one that he saw. From my effort you can see that there is a lot of details added in this picture and if you look closely you will be able to find that the line and the pattern behind the Lamborghini logo is outstanding. This design is also using negative space to make it look impressive for example if it did not have any negative space it would not be a design and the design will not be good enough. I have added a lot if personal interest in to really appeal my feeling towards Lamborghini. I also feel good on carving the plate well because when I did the test print it was perfect meaning that it the print transfer to the paper well. I feel like my design will match any color if the back ground was black because the pattern and the shape balances the shape well to make the perfect design. When I always struggled I always came up with a solution for example asking my friends or using a thicker carving tool to not waste my time carving in a thin carving tool and kept going, that is my best thing that I was really proud of my self.

Things I need to improve (solution)

In design the design is interlocking however the design it’s self is not balanced. For my opinion if the design is interlocking it is good and I know the design is not suppose to be semetrical. Next time I would make this balanced by thinking about the center more. In this design I did not use my cultural influence that much because I did not have a lot of interest on it, in-fact I thought it was the best to show my personal interest. Since I rearly added my culteral influence I would improve on this by thinking about it more and making it the main thing. I think I would not improve on my personal influence that much because it was my main thing and I was appealing to the other a lot however since I only did my personal influence it was not balances with the cultural influence so next time I would let mr.reed to remind me to make it balanced. Also to use my creative thinking I can solve problems to make it balanced. Meaning I would like to add more of my Japanese motif design.

P2  Interlocking

My interlocking design is really interlocking because I measured where it will interlock with a ruler. When I put the design together the corners of the design makes a flower because the corners was like a leaf shape and if I combine them together it makes a flower shape I know this because I tied it on my paper at my house to see if it interlocks. I chose the color red and black Back ground because red on black stands out perfectly when I print with ink. I chose this color because they symbolise a powerful animal which is a bull and the car company called Lamborghini. They produce a car that has a lot of power and a bull has a lot of power to add to that if I add a color that symbolise a animal with a lot of power. I did not use polychromatic for my color plan. I did not use analogous colors because they will look similar and it will not look good in my design. I could not use complementary color since my back ground was black and on my color plan it said red on black. I did not use unity instead I chose my color random to make my design stand out.

Art Unit 1 Reflection

As you can see my self-portrait that I first drew was a disaster. However when I pushed my self and concentrated on my work It was a little bit more better. Before we were going to draw our selves we had to work on our nose mouth and eyes to make it look realistic. I had a feeling that I wanted to really make it realistic so I looked at the gradation and the value scale to make sure that it would look good. When we were really going to draw our selves I thought I got a second chance and I practiced A lot of times and the best part was communication. Since I was looking at my drawing thinking this looks good others thought a little bit different. So I decided to collaborate with my classmates and communicate with them. As I when through I was falling a little bit with my work so I organised my timetable and decided to go to open studio. I practiced a lot I worked hard to make it look three dimensional I added the shade, high lights, gradation, value. I aways remembered not to draw dark lines because it would look like a cartoon drawing. So over all practice and communication helped me a lot.

To make my drawing better there is going to be steps to do it. For my self-portrait I fell like I have to focus every single time because even though I am concentrated sometimes I get off track and I fell back with my work simply because me not focusing the whole time. I definitely need to take more time on high-lighting and blending because if I did my drawing would be more realistic and it would be three dimensional and since I couldn’t blend for a long time the lines looked a little bit dark meaning it would look more like a cartoon drawing.

Trough out this unit I think I am I communicator because in this unit when I thought that I needed to get some advice I asked my friends if there is none mistakes they said to me “you have to fix this part” and it really helped me because from my perspective it totally looked really good. However from my friends perspective the shape of my eye looked a little bit crumbled up. I was able to fix were I didn’t think I needed to because of my communication skills and my friends communication with me as well. Another word that I would use for this unit is risk taker because I didn’t know that steps to make my eye look good so I decided to do my best drawing the line. Although my friends said that eye looks a little bit dislocated I fixed it. I said to my self this is better than not trying. Since I made a bid mistake next I knew what to do to not make a big mistake. That is the reason why I called my self communicator and risk-taker.
