Paintings…really bad paintings

[Yes, they are terrible, but…my excuse is that I have rarely painted in my entire life, I am not a good drawer and…yup that is all.]

The task for this particular assignment was to draw each model that was put on a table. For each model we were given 5 minutes and the materials were:

  •  paint supplies
  • water color pad/sketch pad

Little Red Rapunzel and the Beanstalk

The assignment was to re-write the short story Little Red Riding Hood and change it up. So what i had in mind was to basically mix Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack and the Beanstalk,all known childhood stories, and put it in one.

Brainstorm Web of my ideas

Little Red Rapunzel and the Beanstalk

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Red. She was a typical teenage girl with a normal life. She had only one friend and her name was Rapunzel. Rapunzel was a strange girl; she had really long blonde hair. The real story starts when Rapunzel turns 18.

Red was finally invited to her first party ever. She wanted to make this the most memorable night of her life. So she dressed her best, looked her best, and smelt her best. When she was finally ready to go, she left her house and had to walk to Rapunzel’s house, which was in the middle of a forest.

Red made her way to Rapunzel’s house and on her way, she kept repeating one thing.

“This is going to be the most amazing night of my life!”

Over and over she repeated this, until a boy named Jack stopped her.

“I don’t think it will be the most amazing night of your life”

“Why do you say that?”

“Well, because you don’t have these beans.”

Red laughed and laughed, mocking Jack and wondered what made these beans so “amazing”. So she bought 3 of them not knowing what they would do and because she didn’t have a present for Rapunzel.

Red finally arrived to Rapunzel’s tower. Red yelled

“Get me up Rapunzel!

So Rapunzel, with her long hair threw her hair down so Red could climb up. As Red finally arrived at the party, she presented her gift to Rapunzel, the 3 beans. In anger, Rapunzel threw the beans on the floor. Moments later, the floor started to rumble and a beanstalk started growing that reached into the clouds. All of a sudden a giant named Wolf came down and kidnapped Rapunzel and Red. They were never seen again. The End.

Moral of the story, there is none.

Textures.

The assignment was to take a picture of different textures around the school campus…these are what I came across that caught my eye.

Draw a Bunny?

This “amazing sketch” took place in our ‘Sketching for Communications’ Class. The instructions were :

1. Use any drawing utensil
2. Draw a Bunny
3. You have 5 minutes
I’m not a very good drawer, which you all can tell, but this class isn’t really all about drawing. It is about the ideas that you have and how you use them. This assignment was only to make a bunny with whatever writing utensil you had in 5 minutes, but if we had more time, maybe something more creative could have been made. Just like the teachers example of making the bunny out of paper and then wrapping it around a pencil like he’s cooking it. Yeah, now that’s creative.

-what i learned? more time, better ideas, better bunnies.
