HOW TO DRAW SQUIDS SWIMMING IN MS WORD
MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 20 PART 1
TITLE: HOW TO DRAW SOME SQUIDS SWIMMING IN MS WORD
TYPE: FINE ART – DIGITAL LINE DRAWING
One of the advantages of digital drawing is that you can create multiple copies of the same subject and then do some alterations or editing here and there to make the copied images look different. Look closely at the digital drawing above and you can see that I had made some changes to two other squids to make the three squids look different. With these, I created a fine art drawing depicting squids swimming below the surface of the ocean. You can also see sunlight shining through the water’s surface. The entire drawing can be created using the Curve, Scribble and Line tools. The Scribble line tool was used to draw the ocean's surface viewed from below. Art Education teachers can also use this drawing to teach the Elements of Design such as Line, Form and Space. For example, when teaching the concept of space, distance has an influence on the size of the subjects. The squid in the foreground looks bigger whereas the one in the middle distance looks a bit smaller. The third squid in the background looks smallest. Well, you can do many things with the image of the squid digitally except eating it!
