This delicious looking green apple was drawn with the Curve line tool. The drawing was then filled with Gradient effects to enhance its appearance. This drawing shows the front view of the apple. It has been a known fact that eating green apples can keep you healthy. Its sugar content is lower too. Why don’t you try creating a graphic design for the apron by using apple as the subject matter?

HOW TO DRAW AN APRON IN MS WORD PART 2

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 35

TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW AN APRON IN MS WORD PART 2
TYPE:    DIGITAL DRAWING

When I started drawing pictures using MS Word Drawing program in 2000, I only knew how to join drawing objects to create pictures. But I wasn’t satisfied with the results because the drawings didn’t look natural. Here is one of my earlier drawings which I drew in 2000. So, I had to figure out some methods to make the drawings look more realistic and natural. Instead of just giving up and accepting things as they were, I tried to tackle the problems and eventually managed to get around the problems by applying various techniques to make the drawings look presentable. One of the techniques is the masking technique that can be used to trick the eye. It is the process of covering or hiding a part of the drawing object from view with another drawing object. I use it to create an illusion and it enables me to create many kinds of drawings and effects.



In those days I used to draw like that.
A.  THE DISSECTED DRAWING
A total of 8 drawing objects were created to complete the picture of the apron.

B.  HOW TO MASK OR COVER A DRAWING OBJECT?
This section shows how to join two shapes and make them look as one unit. The trick is to hide the line that is still visible when two shapes are joined.  First, draw two shapes that are an organic shape and a rounded rectangle. Next, draw a small rounded rectangle and cover the line between the two intersecting shapes. Finally, click Format > Shape Outline > No Outline > OK.

HOW TO DRAW AN APRON IN MS WORD PART 1

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 35
TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW AN APRON IN MS WORD PART 1
TYPE:    DIGITAL DRAWING
The apron that you see was drawn with Curve line and Rounded Rectangle. I got the idea of drawing realistic pictures with the Curve line tool when I drew a picture of Hello Kitty in 2002 using MS Word 97. Yes, you can draw cartoon characters with this graphics program. Since Angry Birds characters are so popular nowadays, why don’t you try drawing some of your favourite characters with the Curve line tool. As usual, I’ll leave it to readers to try drawing this apron on your own first before I show how the drawing is done later in the next post.
