Second drawing

This was our second task in this unit. We were to produce another drawing with cubism.
This was my result:
The drawing wasn't that good, and to be honest I am not happy with it.
It doesn't fill out the page in a proper way, and it could have been more colors.There isn't a lot of shading which could have filled out the page more.

To be completely honest, I didn't work too hard on it because I got bored, and wanted to do something else.

Yet I think it was a good idea of using the black and white color to make the windows "shine". This allowed to spend less time on drawing the picture itself. Then I didn't have to bother about the details inside the plane

What I think is good is that the plane is quite well drawn, and that I drew it from four different perspectives. I think that the blue color is nice, and it gives a good tone to the drawing. I only spent one and a half hour on drawing it.

The unit has been quite good, but partly boring, because we were doing the same thing over and over again.

First Challenge

 Here I have got a bit into our first task. We were going to make a small cubism picture, where our theme was a guitar set up on a table. On the picture to the right you can see that I have gotten a bit into the drawing. First we drew several straight lines on the paper, and each time we were going to start on a new part of the sheet, we had to change our position to get the whole meaning of cubism to apply. As you can see I have glued on some pieces of newspaper to get an extra touch on the drawing. My next step would be to make shadows on the drawing. When we first drew the picture, we drew it on a white piece of paper, and then  we used a pencil to color in the whole back of it, then it got to be a graphite paper. We then got another piece of grey paper and then we put the white paper on top of it and then we drew over the lines on our first drawing, so the lines got transferred to the second piece of paper. Then we just had to shadow it in.

Now I have started to do some shading, It didn't take that long, and I was quite happy with my product so far.

Here I am completely finished. The shading has been quite successful.
Even though I think it is a quite good drawing, I don't think it has that many familiarities with the picture I chose for inspiration. It is a lot easier to see what it is a picture of when it comes to my drawing, and the colors are a lot darker, because I only used black, grey and white. On my drawing I also used pieces of newspapers, to get an extra "touch" on the drawing. Furthermore I think that my drawing could have included more shapes to fill out the picture in a better way.

Unit 2-Cubism

Picasso The Guitar Player Cubism

This is our second unit. It is a unit where we are learning about cubism, which is a form of art where you can see a person, or a shape from several angles in the same picture. A cubism picture is often quite hard to see what it is trying to show, but it allows each individual to wonder for themselves what the picture might represent, and what it is trying to tell us. Cubism tries to show the different "perspectives" in the world by simply adding several angles of view in the same picture. Pablo Picasso was the first person to actually paint with the style of cubism.

The picture at the left is a picture painted by Picasso. It is a cubism picture and is called 'The Guitar Player'. This is the picture I will use to guide myself through the unit and it will be my inspiration when it comes to how to paint a cubism picture.

When I chose my icon I wanted to chose a person which I like, so I chose my idol Jason Wade which is the lead singer in the band Lifehouse. The picture I chose was a picture which was only from his shoulders and up so you can easily see who he is.

I printed off the picture in A5 format and divided the picture into squares measuring 1x1 cm. Then I took a sheet of A3 paper and made the equal number of 2x2 cm squares on the A3 sheet of paper as there was 1x1 cm squares on the A5 sheet of paper. What I used to draw my icon was basically a pencil and a eraser, and of course a ruler to make the squares on the papers.
I am very happy with my drawing and to be honest quite proud. I worked a lot on the nose and I finally got it as I wanted it, and the rest of the face is good as well.I am very happy with the neck. I think the shading was good, and it is easy to see why the shading is there.

I spent a lot of time to get the nose and the mouth to look good. The eyes was quite good from the start, but when I got finished with most of the drawing I could see that he was a bit cross-eyed on the drawing so I had to fix that.

I think this was a very good unit and very fun. I am happy with my result and I don't think it made a difference that I came two weeks into the unit.

Final Product

Finally I have completed my drawing :D Please leave me some feedback so I can improve my future drawings :P

Yeah :D Now my drawing is really starting to take it's shape. Even though I am quite happy with the cheeks, I will re-draw a bit on the right side
Does the cheek look better now? The Drawing is getting more alive because of the colors though :D Amazing how this works :D

Even further into the drawing

Now the drawing is taking it's shape... His cheeks still looks horrible, so I'm working on that :P


Now I've got a bit into the drawing... What do you think. I know I've been publishing fast, but I have to catch up with the others, so that's why it isn't more than 5 minutes of time between each time I've been publishing :P


Okay :D Here's my Icon. His name is Jason Wade, and he is the Lead Singer of my favorite band, Lifehouse

First Unit

Hi guys! The first unit on this blog is "Icons". We are going to draw  a person of our choise. We are usin a "Grid" technique which means that we are choosing a picture which was around the size of A5, then making 1 cm squares all over the picture. Then we take a A3 sheet and make 2 cm squares, and then we trace the smaller picture. I'll add Pictures later


Hi Guys! My name is Morgan, and this is is my blog for arts at school. I'll put out pictures and information about each unit and how I'm progressing.
