This monster is suppose to be a tissue box…once you tape it together. I chose to re-design a tissue box because I couldn’t think of an idea, and Mrs. Oliveri said that the school tissue boxes were really bland and I agreed…so that’s how that happened.The one blue rectangle on the bottom becomes the bottom of the tissue box when it’s assembled.The two blue/grey pattern rectangles become the length sides of the tissue box, and the two yellow squares become the width sides of the tissue box. The monster face side is the top of the tissue box. Actually the monster face was also Mrs. Oliveris idea. I kind of stole it from her. Personally I hate it. I don’t think there’s anything new or special about it. It looks like any other tissue box to me.
For my proposal I would like to make a short video about a puppy that gets abandoned, but than a little girl finds him and she adopts him.
At first it didn’t look like much because I would paint one part at a time, but once I got and entire area done then it really started to look like the picture. It has been a long time since the last time I painted a picture, but I don’t think they are the same. With the sketchpad and the pen you can have any color you want without having to rinse out a color. On the computer if you make a mistake you can just erase it and try again, but with a canvas and paintbrush you can’t do that. I think having the picture as a template was very nice because I had a guide so I knew what I was doing. It was hard to get used to the sketchpad but after you’ve used for a while it gets easier, (I actually enjoy using it now). I think my favorite part was seeing the finished product because it looks amazing. If I had used a canvas and paintbrush it would not have looked as great. If I could change something I think it would be the quality. The finished product is nice, but there are some areas where the painting quality is wonky. Other than that I really like the colors and how it turned out.
For this assignment we had to make a postcard for The Evening of the Arts. The Evening of the Arts is a public event in which artwork from all different grade levels is on display. For my postcard I put the three artpieces that I liked on the front. On the back I put the same three pieces but I zoomed in on them so you couldn’t seen the entire pieces.
I like this poster because I like the contrast of the white letters on the purple background. it’s very simpe but it still looks nice. I also like the illusion of the milk because it looks like it is flowing all the way down the page. The little droplets that are shaped like shamrocks are also a really cool touch.
