New Piece

Im working on a greek themed sketch right now. I decided to draw a sculpture of hercules. In this drawing hercules has a lion head on his own head something like a headdress which basically represents his victory against the beast.

First attempt at this piece. I started off by drawing the lions head once I got it’s head in place I knew exactly where I wanted to put hercules face. I’ve never drew with a grid but now I think of it it’ll probably be way easier. IMG_4269

 

Second attempt… Continued by drawing the beard and added more detailing to the lions fur.  Also drew Hercules neck. Unfortunately I lost my stub so I’ve been blending shades with my finger.

Third attempt… Drew more detail on the lions fur and more detailing on the neck. As you can see I’m actually nowhere near finish I just got the basic lay out of it down. But as far as shading I have a long way to go I only got the HB and 2HB down. The other shades will bring more depth to my piece and and also help it look more realistic.

Reading the advice giving from other students was very helpful and interesting to me. “Identifying your taste”  I thought this was pretty interesting because instead of being bored consuming information this class gives you a chance to personalize what you learned and use in a way you’ll enjoy best. I find this “Considering content that already excites you” most helpful because it literally gives you a chance to be you. I haven’t really did any constructive projects but I would like to. I actually believe that majority of the advice is very helpful I see myself using all of it especially in a major like this. thumbsup

Site Check-in

Today I gave myself time to make adjustments to my site. Thank god for this outline given to us it helped me out a bit in organizing my thoughts and knowing exactly what I would like to do with my site. I feel good about the pages on my site I know how I’m going to work with it and what I want to do. Im still a little confused with the Categories and the Widgets because of the way my site is already set up I don’t feel the need for the two. And for how I’m feeling? Well…

The Story of Aaron Swartz

I chose to watch the documentary on Aaron Swartz “The Internet’s Own Boy”. I would like to start off by saying that I really enjoyed the film it was well put together and kept my interest from beginning to end. Aaron in my opinion was a genius from birth you could just tell from the footage from when he was a child they were able to include in this film.

While watching this documentary I came across the moment I believe was an important idea in Aaron’s life as programmer. The moment in the film where he’s being interviewed and he’s talking directly into the camera. At exactly 11:49 in this film he speaks about school and how he felt about the school system, the education system and the professors. Aaron started to question everything. He said “Once I started questioning the school I was in, I started questioning the society that built the school, I questioned the businesses that the school was training people for and the government that set up this whole structure.”

Once he began questioning these subjects he made up his mind to drop out of school. I feel like this was an important idea in his life because dropping out of school can be a big deal for most people. He was just simply too smart for school he thought that everything he was learning in school he could have just read in a book and he wasn’t interested in what they were teaching him. He didn’t care about American History he wanted to know about the web. Again I feel like this was an important time in his life because it probably was the best decision he’s probably made in his life and its quite ironic that something like dropping out of school can actually benefit you.
