1. Most successful project : Final Self Portrait
2. Least successful project : Figure Drawing
3. Two projects that show growth: Self Portrait Sketch vs. Final Self Portrait
The self portrait sketch was my first try drawing a self portrait in this class. It was done in my sketch book, and it was just practice. To draw it I had to look at myself in the mirror, drawing what I saw. I think it was well done, but it was a little bit rough and the proportions were off; also it didn't look like me. The Final Self Portrait was probably my fourth try drawing myself in this class, and I feel like I got way better. In the final I think the proportions were more on point and it was better put together; it looked a bit like me too. My final shows better detail and is way more creative.
4.Two mini lessons that were most beneficial : Bottel drawing and Peppermint
Both of these mini lessons were to prepare us for the Transparency Project. The bottle drawing, which was done in the sketchbook, was our first practice drawing transparency. The lesson was all about teaching us the highlights and low lights we need to add to show the transparency in the bottle. The peppermint was less of a lesson and more of a self practice. The peppermint was pretty well done, I was kind of disappointed it wasn't a real project. I don't feel like I mastered drawing transparency, and I would really like to. I feel like these mini lessons really helped me.
5. Favorite medium : Scratch Board
