HOW TO CREATE A COLOURED GARDEN SNAIL IN MS WORD
MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 25 PART 1
TITLE: HOW TO CREATE A COLOURED GARDEN SNAIL IN MS WORD
TYPE: GRAPHIC ART
In this project, I’ll show readers how to create a graphic design with the digital drawing of a garden snail which is at the first place a fine art drawing. Works of art such as drawings, paintings, prints and sculptures that are created for display and to be admired for their esthetical values as well as mediums for artists to express their creativity, emotions and thoughts are known as fine arts. These works are not intended to be produced in large quantities for practical or commercial use. However, graphic art is more inclined to commercial purposes. Therefore graphic designs which are meant for a larger audience are produced in large quantities such as posters, advertisements, magazine covers, brochures, labels, and so on. Graphic artists got to produce works in accordance to the needs and expectations of the clients. As a matter of fact, I personally feel that until now naturalistic works are still the preferred choice of most clients.
Adding colour effects to the drawing enhance its appearance. To create a coloured drawing of the snail, use the tools on the Format tab to create the desired effects. For example, to create 3-D effects for the shell, do the following:
Format > Shape Fill > Gradient > More Gradients, and in the Fill Effects dialog box, choose a colour or two colours and also a shading style (From Center). You can also try choosing an effect from Shape Styles.
Feel free to experiment with the tools to get the desired effects. Don’t worry, they won’t bite!
