HOW TO DRAW A PIE CHART IN MS WORD PART 1

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 18 PART 1


TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW A PIE CHART IN MS WORD

TYPE:   MATHEMATICS DIAGRAM



A pie chart is also known as a circular graph. The circle is divided from the centre  into several parts or sectors and each sector represents a proportion of the whole volume, amount or size of the data. The pie chart can be used in other subjects other than Mathematics. Drawing a pie chart which has no colours is not a difficult task. Actually, the real challenge is when you want to draw a coloured pie chart where each sector is filled with a different colour. Anyway, there is a way to do it in MS Word as you can see in the illustration above. Can anyone tell me how it is done? I believe that nothing beats the satisfaction of being able to create something on your own and knowing how to do it. Personally, I like to create my own clip art images with MS Word to be used in PowerPoint slides.

HOW TO DRAW A PANDA IMAGE FLASH DRIVE DESIGN IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 17 


TITLE:   A PANDA IMAGE FLASH DRIVE DESIGN

TYPE:   GRAPHIC DESIGN



Having drawn the panda and the flash drive in MS Word in the earlier graphics projects, why not combine these two subjects to create a panda image flash drive design. In case readers wonder why use a serious looking panda image for the design, I feel that the flash drive with this design is suitable to be used to keep “serious data” such as document, PowerPoint and other project files.  I prefer to use the rabbit design instead to keep “light data” such as movie, mp3 and picture files. Well, this is only my opinion.

HOW TO DRAW EARTH AS A SPHERE IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 16  (PART 1)

TITLE :  HOW TO DRAW DIAGRAM OF EARTH AS A SPHERE  IN MS WORD

TYPE  :  MATHEMATICS DIAGRAM

(This diagram shows the location of three points, P, Q and R on the surface of the earth. O is the centre of the earth. The longitude of P is ………….)

The mathematics diagram above is created using the following tools in AutoShapes: Oval, Arc, Line, and Freeform line. Although diagram like this can be drawn in Paint, I still feel that drawing mathematics and science diagrams in MS Word has its advantages. First, the diagrams will always remain sharp no matter how many times you edit them. In other words, images created in MS Word are not raster files and therefore do not suffer image degradation. Secondly, diagrams created in MS Word are very much easier to manage and work with especially when you are working on lesson notes and test papers in MS Word. Since I’m making my blog like a tutorial, I’ll leave it to the readers to try drawing this diagram on their own first before I reveal how the drawing is done in my next post. This sounds like a magician revealing the secret of his magic trick, eh?

HOW TO DRAW A COLLARED T-SHIRT IN MS WORD PART 2

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 15  (PART 2)


TITLE :  HOW TO DRAW A  COLLARED T-SHIRT IN MS WORD

THE DISSECTED DRAWING:


As you can see in the illustration above that the t-shirt was created with the Curve line tool. The Edit Points tool was used to adjust the shapes and lines.


WHAT TO DO WITH THIS ILLUSTRATION?

Well, I’m using the panda and rabbit designs created in the earlier projects to create two t-shirt designs that reflect the mood of the wearer. If I’m feeling on top of the world today, which t-shirt shall I wear?

HOW TO DRAW A COLLARED T-SHIRT IN MS WORD PART 1

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 15  (PART 1)

TITLE :  HOW TO DRAW A  COLLARED T-SHIRT IN MS WORD

TYPE  :  ILLUSTRATION


Try drawing the t-shirt using only the Curve line tool and fine-tune the lines using the Edit Points tool. I’ll show readers how this drawing is created in my next post. I love using the Curve line tool to draw pictures with organic shapes and fluid lines. Drawings created with the Curve line tool look natural and realistic.

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 14  (PART 2)


THE DISSECTED DRAWING:



As you can see in the dissected drawing that the all the parts or drawing objects that made up the drawing are created by the Curve line tool. The Edit Points tool is used to adjust the lines. Use the Send to Front and Send to Back commands to adjust the position of the drawing objects. In the next project, I'll show readers how to draw a t-shirt and incorporate this design into it.
