For our first assignments, we were told to make a design using only lines. These designs were split into four different kinds of lines: vertical and horizontal, diagonal, curved, and a combination of all the above.
We first had to make 25 thumbnail sketches for every kind of line, totaling 100 sketches.
ALL OF THE ABOVE
After making all the thumbnail sketches, we had to pick one and cut the lines out of black construction paper, and paste them onto an 8 x 10″ sheet of bristol.
(Sorry for the pictures, I would’ve liked to scan them but I had no idea how I would go about doing that.)
I felt happy with my finished pieces, except for the last one. It was difficult to cut and it just created an unbalanced mess of lines. I’m not too fond of it!
I’m also particularly upset because I had a couple of sketches that would’ve been more interesting, but they would’ve taken way too long to cut and I would’ve missed the due date for them. Oh well!
Critique was really brief; nothing was said about my pieces other than they were the wrong size. I didn’t really check the size on my bristol board so I assumed it was the right size for the piece. Whoops~
Overall, I think it was a pretty fun assignment! The only part that got kind of annoying were the sketches; it was hard to come up with so many different designs! But all in all, I enjoyed working on this assignment. I felt really good when I was cutting the thin lines and the knife would just make these really clean cuts, it was kind of like magic!
