1. What where some of your solutions to What’s the Point?
there wsa so many ideas i head, i had bows and arrows, and roses, and also ideas on cactuses. though, i didn't chose any of them, i choose a pointing stick on mount everest... which i though was fun.
2. Which solution did you chose and why?
I origonally though of a pointing stick on mount everest as a joke. and well, thats what i did ironicly, only the pointing stick is barely visable in the guys hand, so its mostly just mount everest. 3. How did you show contrast in your work?
the way the mountains get darker the farther away from the sun they are, or at least what i tried to do. i also, just think it looks nice, its not amazingly detailed or anything, it just looks nice. 4. What medium did you decide to use? Why did you choose this medium over the others?
i decided to use pencil for one reason and one reason only. i can not use the pen for my life... im really bad at it. 5. What techniques did you use to create this work?
i tried to shade the mountains, i also darkened the lines of the mountain when they touched other mountains.i think it turned out well.
We encourage risk taking in art. Risk taking can be as simple as trying a new technique or learning about a new medium to as complex as trying something totally new.
6. Did you take any risks with this project?
i think i took a risk drawing the person who held the pointing stick, im really bad at drawing people, so i did take a risk on that, even though mos tpeople whoudln't have any problems with it.
7. What message are you conveying? How are you convey this message through the use of your images or use of art elements or principles?
the message i am trying to get through is that the point is the point of the world, its the biggest point out there. also that pointing sticks are funny. i used shading on the mountains, and hoped it went well, i think it did, and the contrast between mountains also really helped with that. so in all, i think it got the point across, if you know what i mean.
