This is the fifth round of technology/multimedia, but I still find it hard as always. I have learned a lot of things in this class which include, Adobe programs, coding and some strategies for researching. Coding seems to be very hard for me because I’m not really interested in coding and it’s really difficult for me. I always keep myself focused on my teacher, so I do not fall asleep and don’t understand anything. But, what’s special for this round is my teacher let us choose what topics that we have learned so far this year to learn more. I decided to choose photoshop and work on it, but I have so many problems. The point is I don’t know how to use photoshop :(. I want to edit a lot of cool picture like on the internet, but I can’t because I have no skill at all. In the end, I decided to use digital drawing to draw and outline some of the pictures in the photoshop.I want to learn how to use Digital drawing because I see many people create their own cartoon with digital drawing. I’m obsessed with cartoon pictures. I want to draw and create my own cartoon pictures, so I decided to choose and learn more about Digital Drawing skills. I learned this skill by using a website call Wacom.com and I’ve seen some seniors and juniors using that and I try to learn with them. On Wednesday, there is a schedule that I have chosen to learn with my senior. It’s call Visual art project. They teach me how to use it. First, I only learn how to outline the picture and color them with simple picture. At first, I don’t really know how to use Photoshop. In Photoshop, they have so many layers and the layers need to be in order, so that we can arrange our drawing path. The other thing is, we need to click on the layer that we want to draw, so that we can draw. In this part, I met so many problems with clicking the wrong layer and I don’t arrange it. I solved my problem by asking my friend and discovering things by myself. One thing I hate about discovering things by myself is sometimes my work goes crazy and it disappears. It was not fun to lose my work, but I really enjoyed outlining and coloring the picture. In the future, I think I want to try to draw my own picture and see what is the difference between my work and other people’s work, then I can improve them later. After I learned how to use the digital drawing, I really enjoyed it and I want to continue using it forever. Even though, I’m changing from editing some cool pictures into drawing things in Photoshop, but I have try some of the tools in Photoshop too! Here are some of my photos that I have edited.
These are my drawing that I am using other people photo to outline and do some color.
These are my final products!
