2) Throughout the course of the semester I have grown a lot with my art skills. I have developed better knowledge on how to create quality art work. However, the one particular art project that helped me grow the most was the value portrait. This project helped me grow as an artist because it helped me learn how important different values are when you are drawling. This project taught me that no object has just one value, and in order to make the art work more realistic and pop out you need to add depth. This project helped me develop the most because I also learned about the different pencil values and which number value would create a darker or lighter mark. Other than the pencil depth this project also taught me not to be afraid to add really dark values. I learned that the darker the value the more the object will stand out and create a 3D illusion. Another thing that this project helped me grow on, was light source. This project helped me identify a certain light source and helped me learn how to show it. To show where the light source was coming from I had to make the side the sun was hitting light while the other side was darker. These skills that I learned throughout this project I originally thought were pointless. however, as the semester went on I started to realize that I was incorporating all these skills in every art project I did. The value portrait has made me grow as an artist.
3) The clay tile was constructed by using skills and techniques that I have learned from previous projects. This project was successful because I have grown as an artist and have learned to master the skills that Iwas taught in this course. In previous projects where I was just learning about light source I was having a hard time showing it in my art work. However, on the clay tile I was successful in showing where the light source was and where shadows were, that was created by the animal. I was successful because I knew where the light didn't hit, had to be a darker color, and where the light sourcedid hit had to be lighter shade of the color used. I grew in this project in the sense that I was able to incorporate shades and tints in the correct spot, successfully incorporating the light source in my final piece. This certain project is proof that I have grown as an artist because I use previous knowledge of texture into my final piece. Previously I learned that texture was an important aspect in showing the depth and creating the realistic affect. Therefore, I showed texture in the leaves by making certain indention's in each one. For my animal I created his texture by scrapping an exacto knife, by doing this I was able to show the texture of his wings and feather. By using previous skills and techniques that i enquired from past projects, I was successful in portraying the growth I have made from the beginning of the semester to the end.
5) Out of all the art works I have accomplished in art, I believe that the one artwork that reflects me the more as an artist is the stencil. I believe this reflects me the most because it reflects my personality in every way. The collage was made based on what I thought looked right All the picture arrangement were based on my personality and my likings. It shows how colorful I am and how my personality is bright, because of all the different color variety I used in the background. For the stencil picture I personally choose it because I have always dreamed of going to Hong Kong, and experiencing what the city life is like there. After I finished cutting out the stencil with my exacto knife, I spray painting the collage I made with vibrant colors. I choose these colors based on what I though Hong Kong was going to be like. Very bright and colorful. This artwork, out of all of them, reflects me as an artist because I reflected myself ion my work. As I spray painted and created my collage I made sure to put some of my personality into my work to show the uniqueness of it.
