Flower Powered Robot Inspiration Assignment


Inspiration Craft: I drew this picture on regular notebook paper, as well as almost anything else I draw. First I drew everything out, lightly, using a number two pencil. After I liked what I saw, I outlined what I drew in a think gel pen. After that I fit some light shading with the pen around the belt and the inside of his chest. Because I outlined the flower inside the robot’s chest, it blurred so You can’t really tell in person or in the picture which is one of the flaws I made while drawing this robot. Composition: The way you see it is the way its supposed to be caught. It’s just a robot, powered by a flower. I don’t know why I positioned it in a state of ponder. If I had to label what you have to see from first second and third, It would most likely start from: The flower as well as the position of the flower, The robot as a whole, and finally the state of ponder that the robot is in. Concept: I originally did not have a plan or reason for the drawing, but just because it was drawn without reason it doesn’t mean that it can’t be interpreted differently. It could involve energy and the flower could be a symbol for a reusable energy resource.

Energy Overflow Assignment: Must Take up entire Page

3


Energy Overflow Craft: The assignment for this piece was to take up the entire page. So for this piece I decided to make a pice that had a forest look to it so it would work with the main point. I used water color for it. I focused mainly on green, black, brown, and white. I had different shades of green which helped a lot Composition: I originally had a different Idea on how to lay out the picture and how to position the robot. But for this painting I showed the robot in an empowering stance. He is not grabbing the plant vines. Its more like the vines are wrapping them selves around his arm as a way to show that the robot isn’t taking by force. The beams of light show that he is being powered By the plants instead of being taken over. Concept: He is being charged to the max by the energy given from the plants. The way I see it is that The world needs to find other ways to create a fuel source. And It maybe shouldn’t even be one but many sources for energy. This is how it is linked to the previous drawing.

5 Rebirth Assignment:


Rebirth Craft: First I made the sketch, after that I painted the leaf. From there I used brown for dirt, and then yellow for sun. After all of that I used red for the sky Concept: There really isn’t much to say about this piece, I know it does look like I’m missing something to add on to the story. For this week I took on a different approach to the concept of plant an robot. In here the land is bare because all of the plants have been demolished due to civilization taking advantage of the plants power. There is a sunrise to show a new beginning and a little metallic plant growing as a way to show rebirth and a second chance for humanity. Composition: First you must see the barren land. After that you have to notice the sunrise. From there you have to notice the Metallic looking plant.

Hope in the Darkness Assignment: Must Create A dytech

7


Hope In The Darkness Craft: To make this drawing I used An 8x11 paper and cut it down to two 5x5s. I used a 4H to get a basic outline of what I wanted the butterfly to look like, I also did the same with the robot. After that I went over the background with grey water color. After that I had to wait for it to dry so I could outline the butterfly with a think sky blue. I went over the robot with a thick white coat of water color and when it dried I outlined it in black with red eyes. After that I made a darker layer of grey for the smoke the robot is emitting, adding swirls to show that it is smoke. Concept: The concept of this would be that in a world full of cloud and smoke, when everything seems to be dead and dreadful, there is always something that proves you wrong and showed you hope. Composition: First you notice the greyish background. After that you notice where the smoke is coming from. After you have seen all that, you would then notice the butterfly.

9 Robot Loves Flower Assignment: Different Canvas


Robot Loves Flower Craft: This was made out of cardboard and a piece of an 8x11.5 piece of printer paper. The original assignment was supposed to be that we would use a different type of canvas then I would normally have used. Since I would normally have used white sketchbook paper than I thought that cardboard would be a good idea. So I drew out the sketch that I wanted and taped it to the cardboard. After that I cut it out and made a stand for it. After that I went outside and tried to find a flower, after that I taped it to the robot’s hand, Found a hedge and took a picture in front of it. The original was made out of cardboard so I guess it still counts. Composition: What I would want you took look at first would be the hearts between the robot and the flower, after that you must notice the joy and emotion from the robot’s face and stance. After that you have to look at what he is actually infatuated with. The meaning behind this is just to show the relationship between plants and robots, or animate and inanimate things. It could be either hate or in this case it is love. Concept: The meaning behind this is just to show the relationship between plants and robots, or animate and inanimate things. It could be either hate or in this case it is love.

After that I used a rich red color for the background, and also for the lips of the woman and the doll. After that I used a dark brown color for their hair. Composition: First you must notice the woman and her posture, notice that her eyes are closed, the color of her lips and the shape of her hair. After that there is only one thing to look at, the fact that the doll she holds is an exact resemblance to her own appearance.

Me And my Bot Assignment: Must use the color blue

14


Me And My Bot Craft: For this assignment, we were supposed to use the color blue. First, as usual, I lightly outlined the drawing with a pencil. After that I used water color and focused mainly on three colors: Blue, white, Black, and a little bit of yellow for the robot’s mouth. I mixed the white and the black to get the metal tone for the robot and added water to give it dimension. Then I outlined the man with think black water color. From there I painted the back black, and used several different shades for the man’s eyes, and one shade for the robot. After everything I outlined the robot and painted his mouth yellow. Composition: There is not much to explain in the picture. The best this to do when looking at this picture is to pay attention to the fact that they are in the same position and they have the same color eyes. Concept: This is to get a close up of the human and the robot. They can be similar in Many ways. For example, they can be similar in the coldness that their personality be.

Humans Aren’t The Only Ones Who Can Die From A Broken Heart Assignment: Inspired By a Piece From The Art Institute 16


Humans Aren’t the Only Ones That Can Die From A Broken Heart Craft: For this picture I used one light graphite pencil and after I got the sketch out that I wanted I went over the outlines with a dark, black color pencil. After that the class decided that it would be best if it was colored. So I used light color pencils to color the couch and the robots. Composition: There is a lot of things to look at in this picture. First of all it is best to notice the pain in the robot’s position and how he is completely torn apart. After that You must notice the lack of emotion in the doctor. After everything else you must pay attention to the robot wife and her position in the couch and the fact that she is holding on the a robot infant. Concept: This piece is very similar to the previous piece entitled “My Bot And Me”. This is to show the fact that humans can be cold and robotic in their actions. This is why the doctor is not completely visible while on the other hand you can see the pain that The robot feels on the operation table and the depression in the wife who is holding the infant robot.

Rebirth Of The Robotic Revolution Craft: For this piece I outlined what I wanted in pencil Starting with the Robot. After that I started to lake the layers of peach, pink and purple for the stomach. After everything dried I painted the robot and then painted the negative space black. Composition: I figured that it would be better to make the robot baby facing up, so that who ever sees this can get a better view. Concept: I decided to with human nature in how you would typically have a human woman give birth to a human baby. I decided to switch the Human Baby for a robot because A robot mother could not make the necessary vitamins that a baby would need.
