Again, check your grade!
We missed a day and if you want to turn something in over the weekend, you can do that. Let me know you’re working on something. I’m going to make the last grade just the small perspective drawing of your kitchen, you do not have to finish the large drawing, if you don’t want to. Everything else will graded and be totaled into your grade.
1. If it’s work done on the computer, you can share it to me in the usual fashion: email@example.com or share through Schoology
2. If it’s a hand drawn piece of work, take a picture of it and share that to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check Schoology or the link below for a list of all your assignments!
All the assignments are on schoology and here is a list of all assignment for the quarter on a google doc.
CHECK YOUR GRADE, MAKE SURE IT IS WHAT YOU WANT IT TO BE!
IF YOU NEED TO FINISH SOMETHING, YOU CAN STAY LATE AFTER SCHOOL, COME EARLY, AND/OR COME DURING HIVE.
IF YOU’RE GETTING LOWER THAN A “B”, IT’S BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT TURNING ASSIGNMENTS IN!
The year is going quickly! We are going to finish up by doing some actual drawing on paper! I want to continue the perspective stuff so make sure you have finished up the block drawings, and the perspective questions, then it’s on to:
- Room drawn in perspective. Examples are on desk in portfolio.
- Q-bert, stacked up blocks, traced 60 degree isometric rhombus, look up “Q-Bert game on the internet, see what it looks like and look at the way the game designers used a 60 degree rhombus. Examples are on the board and on desk in portfolio.
- 4 corner blocks each drawn into middle vanishing point. Look at the examples!
- A floor plan of your kitchen. I just want to see where the sink, fridge, stove, are and the general layout of counter tops. I have examples and a handout.
- A small sketch of your kitchen in perspective and a large finished drawing of your kitchen sketch.done in pencil then gone over in ink. Again, examples are hanging up and on desk in portfolio.
More info will be on schoology and I will have examples posted on the board and more available in portfolios on the back table.
The above is a good example of the shading I’m talking about. Not the actual assignment!
2nd Perspective drawing assignment: draw one block, draw a row of 3 blocks and then draw 3 blocks stacked up. You might have done this with me in 5th grade, I bet you’re better at it now!
Do the above on white paper, make one side of the blocks dark, another side gray, and another side leave it white(blank paper). Drawing a bit of a shadow on the dark side makes it look a bit better, so try that too!
Next Assignment, perspective drawing. 12.13.2018
The next animation is making a winter scene. It will have snow falling down and covering some objects, like tree(s), house(s), snowman, or any other thing that might get covered with snow. Think about this as being a holiday card, you’d send by e-mail, if you’d like. 100-120 frames.
Not a good example of the assignment, because there is no snow falling and accumulating, but it’s a great example of a simple animation.
The next assignment is to animate one, or more, character(s) from Greek mythology. So your first bit of the assignment is to open up a google doc and list 10 Greek gods or characters from Greek Mythology and basically what they do/did, or who they were. No more than a sentence or two.
After that, pick a favorite one and make up a 120 frame animation of some activity of your chosen Greek god or character.
If you need inspiration, do a google image search of “pixel art Greek gods”.

You’ve done an explosion, a fire and now it’s time to do another vid game regular. Something shooting something. If might be a rocket ship shooting, like in star wars, or a cowboy shooting something off a fence, or a car shooting another car with it’s surface to surface missile system, A goblin shooting a troll with an arrow….really, it’s up to you. Make it at least 30 frames for a “B”, 40 frames for an “A”
For Wednesday, 11.28.2108
Go to google images to look at some pixel explosions, or cartoon explosion gifs, if you need some ideas.
For Monday, 11.26.18
Here’s a pixel artist by the name of Metin Seven, Nothing to do, just take a look.
Some more examples of Pixel art, again, nothing to do, just take a look.
Below are two examples of something moving across the page assignment.
CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TURNED EVERYTHING IN, I STILL HAVE REPEATED DESIGNS WITH NO NAME ON THEM AND/OR THEY ARE NOT TURNED IN.
So if you’re down with the large repeated design, finished the questions and facts about Iwatani, and finished the drawing(s) in the style of Iwatani, we are going to do the same assignment about another Japanese graphic designer by the name of Shigeru Miyamoto.
So go find 10 facts about Shigeru Miyamoto, paste them into a google doc, find 5 examples of Miyamoto’s artwork, paste them into a google doc and then and do 5 drawings in his style. I would find it more fun to make up my own drawings in Miyamoto’s style, but you can copy, if that is your preference. You can use paper or a draw program.
Make sure your drawing is posted on your website. If you drew on paper, take a picture with your laptop and post that.
So we’ve started a new quarter! You should be finishing with your large repeated design and then going on to what is below. If you’re looking for the page of assignments for last grading session they are here.
Part One Toru Iwatani Facts
Today the assignment is to look up some information about Toru Iwatani. Type 10, short facts about him, do not cut and paste in long sentences! Then find 5 pieces of his art work and copy and paste them into the same google doc and label the assignment, ” Toru Iwatani”.
For the 2 questions below, use wikipedia, and put them right below the 10 facts that you just did.
1. Where did Mr. Iwatani learn his skills to create games?
2. What did he fill his high school books with? Then, describe what “that/it” is.
After the above you will create Toru Iwatani inspired artwork:
You can use whatever draw program you’d like. You might want to look up another program to draw pac man. I would suggest when drawing you cut and paste equal sized blocks into a ghost and a pac man shape to start, then draw some of your own images. You are to have 5 drawings total in the style of Toru Iwatani, 3 can be copies and 2 have to be your own creation. Make them on individual draw pages or all on one page, after you are done the 5 images you created are to be placed into website/blog. Make a new post for this assignment!
