Endangered Typography “RUIN”

Final Photo:

Process: To begin this piece I researched endangered animals and by taking a look at the list I decided to do some animals that people might or might not recognize but not know are endangered. So for my typography piece I had to choose some words and the first thing that came to mind when I thought of endangered animals was “eat, delete, ruin.” For the order I had to look at how each animal was becoming endangered. The Saola was becoming endangered by getting eaten for wild meat. The African Wild Dog was having its habitat being taken away because of forest destruction and human deforestation. And the sea turtle as most people might know is having its habitat being ruined by humans by us throwing plastic and all kinds of garbage in the ocean destroying their organs, appearance, and suffocating them to death. To begin drawing this I had to find a pose for the sea turtle that would fit the letters “ruin” and so I came across this photo, and printed the image out. After this I got out some tracing paper to trace over the image, and then I transferred it into a sheet of paper for practice. For the letters I retraced the letters on top of he practice image, and then I wrote the letters on top of the tracing paper. After this I transferred it onto big paper and then end t over it in thin pen. After this I erased all the pencil marks and then used watercolor pencils to show the location here this was happening which I painted behind the turtle, the ocean. The piece demonstrates how sea turtles are endangered in the ocean and as a viewer by guessing what the word “ruin” they can get the memo that humans are trashing the ocean with plastic and garbage that is ruining the sea turtle and many other animals lives.

Critiques:

Formal/Technical: Mrs Johnson said that she liked w yellow circle that demonstrated the ocean behind the turtle, which I wasn’t certain about, so I decided to keep it. She also said that she liked the way I made the animal come off the page, bc I was thinking about redoing it but she said it was fine.

Expressive:  I took Cerri’s advice of making the animals relate to one another by being endangered instead of selecting just random animals.

Sensory: Anna Claire suggested that I try using different  mediums, such as watercolor, which I included in this piece, and everyone felt like this piece was a success.

Elements and Principles of Design:

-Shape: I used shape in my piece, by watercoloring a circle in the background to make the ocean, also by making the words for my piece in the shape of the part of the animals body.

-Line: I used line by incorporating shape into the direction in which the line went, and by doing this I was able to show that the letters ruin made up the object which is a sea turtle.

Space: By making the letter kind of fat like bubble letters I was able to emphasize the lines and the vast difference from white in the letters and in the background. Also by making the yellow circle just an empty object not detailed or anything, I made the piece look more simple.

Reflection: I love this project because with this new concentration topic I chose, there is so much I can do with it like how I did typography, I could’ve done a lot of things and by continuing by concentration I plan on exploring different areas that I can expand to make my pieces more professional and unique looking. And with the idea of focusing on endangered species and adding color/ more mediums I’m excited to see what other kinds of art pieces I can make without copying directly from the photo. I learned that I could make my artwork into or with letters to make it unique and emphasize a point. I’m proud of how good I could male my typography look, and at some point I would love to be able to do it digitally on my IPad Pro or something. Also I am proud of how I was able to make sure you can tell what the animal is and also able to successfully transfer the piece onto paper successfully, because I’m kind of new to using trace paper and tracing artwork in general. In the future I will continue making endangered animal artworks continue testing the waters with different mediums.

Endangered Typography “EAT”

Final Photo:

Process: As for all the other endangered projects I researched an animal to do and I came across the Saola, an animal that many people might not even know about. To start this piece I printed he picture then sketched over it on paper, and after I made the animal with letters on tracing paper that I transferred to a bigger paper. After this I did the same with the background as I did the African Wild dog with the location of the endangered animal.

 Critiques:

Formal/Technical: Just as Mrs Johnson critiqued my African Wild Dog piece she said to do the same for this piece make the location of the endangered animal behind the animal and for every part that the animal touches the continent make some kind of pattern.

Expressive:  I took Cerri’s advice of making the animals relate to one another by being endangered instead of selecting just random animals. Both this Saola and theAfrican Wild Dog are both from the same endangered part of Africa.

Sensory: Anna Catherine likes how detailed I made the animal with the words, and how it looked super realistic too.

Elements and Principles of Design:

Shape: By Shape: By forming the line into the letters I was able to make the shape of the letters that I wanted, which made the form of the animals as a whole, while also making it super realistic.

-Line : I used Line to make up the image of the Saola by making it into letters, also by making a very apparent difference for every time the animal touched the continent a different pattern showed his.

Emphasis: I was able to emphasize both the animal and the continent behind it by using the pattern for every time the animal touched the continent.

Reflection: I love this project because with this new concentration topic I chose, there is so much I can do with it like how I did typography, I could’ve done a lot of things and by continuing by concentration I plan on exploring different areas that I can expand to make my pieces more professional and unique looking. And with the idea of focusing on endangered species and adding color/ more mediums I’m excited to see what other kinds of art pieces I can make without copying directly from the photo.

In the future I will continue making endangered animal artworks continue testing the waters with different mediums. I’m also proud of how I was able to incorporate a little bit of zentangle into my piece like how I did in my previous pieces, to show how they all kind of relate now.

Indochinese Tiger

Final Image:

Process: To begin the process, I researched animals that were either endangered or critically endangered. The indochinese tiger caught my eye, because it looked different from most tigers, and wasn’t located in Africa or India like how I thought most tigers were, instead this tiger was located in Southeast Asia. I decided to make my cubism piece about the Indochinese tiger because it is an endangered species that is not always mentioned when you hear about endangered animals, also because I wanted to show how this animals\ has become more endangered because of Southeast Asia’s demand for wild meat. I started off by looking up some cubism pieces and I came across some that were of tiger’s. I knew this tiger looked different because it had a wider nose and face so I decided to start off by sketching one piece and then add on my own shapes to expand the nose and face. Also I added a body to the tiger which is seen as different types of meat.the top of the body is the head and  shoulders which are solid. But towards the bottom I decided to show how this animal is being used for wild meat by showing it chopped up into pieces like steak and ribs. I then added chefs on each side to show the parallelism of the photo, and also to elaborate who is doing the action and create a more meaningful message. For the foundation of the drawing I just sketched it all out with pencil slightly, laying out ideas and planning where I wanted everything to go. After this I started sketching it out and drawing the cubism how I wanted it to look, making it look like a final draft layout for the piece before adding any mediums to it. Next, I added mediums to the piece, I used water colored pencils to paint it and after that I outlines the piece in pen.

Critiques:

Formal/Technical: Mrs Johnson said that she liked the watercolor I did, but thought that I shouldn’t have added the black lines across the chest because they were kind of random.

Expressive:  Mrs. Johnson also approved of me adding the continent of where the tiger is endangered and said to somehow show that it is endangered by including like the red dots you see on endangered maps.

Sensory: Cerri liked how I did the cubism and it looks geometric, and how the tiger looks realistically complicated.

Elements and Principles of Design:

Shape: I used shape in my piece by incorporating cubism as Pablo Picasso did. Almost making it look geometric, but look realistic which is something he didn’t really aim at which makes mine kind of different.

Line: I used line to make the shapes, and also to make my piece look realistic and adding as much detail as Picasso.

Color: I was an;e to color the tiger as a tiger would look but I t was kind of difficult since they were shapes and not just one whole thing.

Reflection: I love this project because with this new concentration topic I chose, there is so much I can do with it like how I did typography, I could’ve done a lot of things and by continuing by concentration I plan on exploring different areas that I can expand to make my pieces more professional and unique looking. And with the idea of focusing on endangered species and adding color/ more mediums I’m excited to see what other kinds of art pieces I can make without copying directly from the photo. I learned that I could make my artwork look good with cubism and using other artist styles such as Pablo Picasso . Also I am proud of how I was able to make sure you can tell what the animal is and making it look realistic. In the future I will continue making endangered animal artworks continue testing the waters with different mediums.

Wolf Masterpiece

Final Photo:

 

3A10AEE4-392C-45E0-8D5B-A9973B4916D8

Process: In this process, I created an art piece that displayed a wolf in its natural habitat. To start, I looked up images of wolfs in the forest, or on cliffs, mostly in their howling pose because it’s the pose that people think of whenever they see a wolf. Next, I sketched the wolf out and the landscape, and labeled everything out of where everything was going to go and how I was going to put all the art pieces on the paper. I then made it as my rough draft by making edits and telling myself In notes the changes that were going to be made. After this I got my final paper, and sketched out the layout from the image, and began to shade in certain areas, ,outlying for he mountains and go over them with small sharpie and medium sharpie tips. After this I began to shade the mountains because hey looked a little too bland, afterwards I went over everything darker with sharpie, and moved on to the trees and wolf. The trees I just used sharpie and simple little designs toco very that trees were supposed to be shown here. Afterwards I used watercolor and prismacolor to do the sky and other certain spots on the art piece. Lastly, I drew the wolf and design patterns on him an her as well as the shading and highlights. Not to mention for some of the trees I used white out, not only to add more flavor, but also to make certain parts stand out of the pencil medium.

Critiques:

Formal/Technical: Mrs Johnson said that even though my concentration focuses on Zentangle and Animals in Nature, I don’t have to just do the same thing for every project. This opened the door for using more mediums and trying to make all my artworks look different from one another while having the same concentration.

Expressive:  Cerri suggested that instead if just making a series of just animals and throwing random animals out there that I focus on endangered animal species, and for the ones that aren’t endangered make them in color, while the ones that are are in black and white.

Sensory: Anna Claire suggested that I try using different  mediums, such as watercolor, colored pencil, pastel instead of just sharpie for all of my projects.

Elements and Principles of Design:

-Line:  I used Line by formatting the texture of the mountains with lines based on the direction the patterns went, also by making the wolf have furry texture, and also with making the trees. For Line I used different pens to make some lines bigger than others.

-Emphasis: I put extra emphasis on the wolf by making it have a simple design pattern to too much because it would Belem in with the mounstisnbecasue the sharpie would make it look darker.

-Space: I used space by making al the white spaces between each land of trees seem like they were further into the distance and also by making it look 3D by making some landscapes higher than the other. Also I used space by making the art pieces not look so crammed up and crowded but evenly spaced so that the art piece revealed the pictured easily without having to guess where everything is.

Reflection:I loved this project because with this new concentration topic I chose, there is so much I can do with it and endless animals to draw. And with the idea of focusing on endangered species and adding color/ more mediums I’m excited to see what other kinds of art pieces I can make without copying directly from the photo. I learned that I could apply different patterns of zentangle whole adding shade to make my artwork stand out. I learned that there is more that  I can do with my art piece which is what I look forward to doing next time.  I’m proud of how good I could make the wolf look in terms of the fur on him, because at first I wasn’t sure how to make the wolf look worrying on how the zentangle would look, but I got the hang of it now. In the future I will continue making animal artworks and instead corporate endangered species into my them, and try to make my own artwork from crafty int]stead of copying from image because when I get to college I know it’s all going to have to be imagination.

2nd Draft

Process: For my concentration, my process was long and fun. Since my concentration focused on animals/pattern in nature, I decided to make an illusion/zentangle design of an animal that would be very detailed and difficult to spot, like camouflage. At first I was going to do a snake, until I decided that snakes are a common animal that someone would assume for me to do. Therefore I chose a frog, because not many people talk about frogs, plus it would be more detailed this way. My first step was to find a photo that I could reference off of, so I found one, and began a zentangle pattern that would hide the frog from public. i sketched out the image on some paper, then got markers and began my zentangle pattern in sharpie. Unfortunately, this idea was too simple, not organic enough, and was boring to the eye. It was lame because it was just black and white squares, not to mention it didn’t fit the design of the frog. In that way, I talked to Mrs. Johnson and she gave me advice of making it more organic, creative and “lively.” So I decided to do a second draft, this time I chose a different frog pose, one that revealed more of its body, and by applying more abstract designs I hoped it would look good. It didn’t, even though I didn’t complete it. I decided the pose for the frog was to general, and it needed to capture it with some leaves behind it, or like in a pose a photographer would catch. So I redid it once again, on a smaller sheet, with the right pose, and this time with more complicated and unique zentangle designs. For this process I youtubed thousands of zentangle designs and chose one for the background to make it look darker, and one for the frog to make the patterns stand out, and one for the leaf to fit the texture of it. After this I drew it with pencil, then sharpie, and I was finished.

Peer critiques:

SENSORY: Mrs. Johnson recommended that I add more organic elements to make the art piece look more alive and add more interest into the piece, because at first it looked too plain and dead. There was no juice.

FORMAL/TECHNICAL: Ms. Johnson recommended a smaller sheet of paper for the final image, so that it’d be easier to see, and so that it’d be easier on myself. Along with this Mrs. Johnson told me to make my zentangle more organic shapes rather than just squares, in that way the it would look more 3-d, original, and creative.

EXPRESSIVE: Cerri suggested that I show more variety of patterns to show that the frog is more alive than the background and the background is supposed to be dark.

-Elements and Principles of Design: Line and shape were used a lot in my piece, because line was in every single part of it, to make designs, create illusions, etc. Shape was incorporated by the different lines or small details that formed shape as an illusion to the eyes.

Process: First you chose the photo that you want, that brings warmth to you face and reminds you of your childhood that you can sketch out, and print out the picture, and practice using the tool in a pristine glass block thing. After this you get an even bigger block, one that is big enough to transfer over to your paper size. After sketching the object your doing, you start to carve the glass with a special sharp hands, and then gradually be almost done with the carving phase. After carving you’re piece, you can print it, so the first step is to grab a big piece of that clear paper to set your art piece on. After this make sure you’re designated paper is sitting in the water. Then you dump a little bit of ink on your glass print and use a card to smear it over and then put it back in the container. After the majority of the ink is gone on your print, you then get a paper towel and while away all the remaining ink until you can hold it without getting ink on your hands. Next take your paper out of the water and place it on a another clear paper, and put a white sheet of paper on it, then your print. After this make sure your print is under all three carpet things and roll it forward and backwards, after this you can uncover the print and see how it looks. After that wait for it to dry,  and in the meantime work on your next prints without rinsing your glass piece off after each one. Whenever your I finished my prints I created a background from scratch, which happened to look pretty good, so I used it for my final prints.

Peer critiques:
SENSORY: Mrs. Johnson recommended for me to change up the background so the image didn’t look so copyrighted, and to make it look more abstract and original to me.
FORMAL/TECHNICAL: Cerri said that I should print the picture in black and white so that I could see the shading, and details so that I could include them in my picture. Mrs. Johnson also said to make crosshatching only for the dark parts, and just use hatching for the lighter parts.
EXPRESSIVE: Maggie said that I should add watercolor to my piece to separate my body from the background and give myself more life in the photo, and to show more wise variety of mediums used.
-Elements and Principles of Design: Emphasis and value, is applied very well in this piece because once gold sharpie highlights, it was clear that this was going to be a very beautiful piece, in fact because the gold stood out it highlighted parts that weren’t so clearly seen at first, and value was used with the charcoal.

Roy Lichtenstein REMADE:The Rottweiler

 

Final Image:

B425F11E-D2A5-4311-A776-D94987DFCAA9Process: For this project the idea was to chose an artist from art history and mimic their work style in your own art piece. So for me I chose Roy Lichtenstein because I loved comic books, and his style was similar to comic artists, not to mention I see a lot of his pieces in restaurants and stuff so I was familiar with it. For me the images I found interesting were the “Grrrrrrrrr!” art piece of the dog and the popeye the sailorman piece. I decided to do a dog for mine because it was the first animal that came to mind. After knowing what I was gonna do I just started sketching from scratch and withvwhatvcamr tobmind when I thought of a dog.  So when my first sketch was finished I added noise art in order to see what affect the dog was making, which is one of  the aspects that are included in almost all of Roy Lichtenstein’s art. Next I divided up my photo 1 inch x 1 inch so I could blow it up on poster, so I increased the dimension x1.5. After that I sketched the image on the board with a 2H pencil. After I finished I used Faber-Castell pens to go over the sketches and erase any stray marks. After this I erased all of my border lines, and used acrylic paint to paint my art piece. I chose yellow for the background because it made it stand out because of the brightness,and red for the “noise action marks” because it was a primary color and it looked good with yellow and because it also stood out in the yellow background, and for the dog’s skin I used light brown and peach, and for the gums and tongue red to make it simple looking. Since some of the lines had paint on them I went over them again with the Faber-Castell and after that I was finished.

D4178B86-D06D-4FAD-914E-9E821652499F

SENSORY: Kerri recommended that I color all the dark parts:the mouth, the nose, etc. with the sharpie pen instead of painting it, along with making my crosshatching lines simpler by ,asking a bigger dark section that covered the main area of the shading.
FORMAL/TECHNICAL: Ms. Johnson recommended that I use yellow for the back ground in order to balance the color of the painting and have some light parts and some dark parts and because it was a color Roy Lichtenstein used.
EXPRESSIVE: Anna Katherine said I should
-Elements and Principles of Design: Emphasis and line , is applied very well in this piece because the simplicity of the background yellow color makes the dog stand out along with the red “noise action marks” which give emphasis to what action is being taken place, the dog barking. Line is used in many methods, including hatching, crosshatching and different size lines, some thick some thin in order to make the image look sharp.
