HOW TO DRAW A RABBIT FACE IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 9

TITLE :  THE HEAD OF A RABBIT

TYPE   :  GRAPHIC DESIGN




© Chang Hon Woon


In this drawing project, I have created the head of the rabbit using only the Curve line tool. At first I was quite sceptical that I could do this in MS Word. But after trying with the tools, I realized that that there are many things that MS Word can do, if you know how. Anyway, it is not really that difficult like squeezing water from a stone. You see, the Curve line tool is a versatile tool and I use it often to draw fluid and organic shapes and forms. Therefore, the drawings created by the Curve line tool appear more natural and realistic. The Edit Points tool is used to adjust and fine-tune the curve lines to get the desired results as you can see in the illustration above.

Creating a drawing in MS Word is basically the process of joining various shapes and lines together using the Order commands to adjust their position. The graphic image above was created by joining and stacking 34 shapes and lines. Start by drawing the shape of the face (pear shape), the rest of the facial features and then finally the ears. In later projects, I plan to use this image to create designs for a medallion and flash drive.

HOW TO DRAW A HALF-EATEN ICE CREAM IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 8

TITLE :  ICE CREAM COATED WITH CHOCOLATE AND NUTS

TYPE   :  ILLUSTRATION


It looks like somebody had taken two bites out of the ice cream. Refer to Project No. 7 for steps to create this ice cream. Make use of the Curve line tool to create the area that has been eaten as well as the bits of nuts that coated the ice cream. Use the Edit Points tool to fine-tune the lines.

To create the bits of nuts, use the Curve line tool to create a few circular shapes and then use the Edit > Copy and Edit > Paste commands to multiply their number.
