This blog focuses on the subject of creating digital images or drawings with MS Word. Those who don't have access to professional image-editing or computer graphics software can try using MS Word Drawing program as an alternative. I would like to share my ideas and views with readers on how to draw various types of graphical images with MS Word.

TITLE:HOW TO DRAW A SHARK IN MS WORD PART 2
TYPE:FINE ART – DIGITAL DRAWING
Chang Hon Woon, SHARKS SWIMMING NEAR THE OCEAN’S SURFACE,
2013. Digital Art: MS Word Drawing, 10.5 x 7.5 in. (26.5 x 19 cm). Malaysia.
This is the completed
digital drawing depicting two sharks swimming near the ocean’s surface. These
sharks varied in sizes according to their positions in the two-dimensional
space. As you can see, the shark in the foreground is larger and clearer than
the one in the background that looks obscure. I am sure that readers will be
able to understand the element of space much better if they draw pictures with
a theme like this either conventionally or digitally. The wonder of computer
graphics is that you are able to duplicate a subject as many times as you want
and thus saving a lot of time.It took
me about two hours to complete this vector-based drawing.
I took part in the EDUCATIONAL BLOGGING COMPETITION
2013 organized by SULTAN IDRIS EDUCATION UNIVERSITY (UPSI) and was selected as
the 2nd place winner of the Open Category. I’d attended the prize
giving ceremony at the university on 13 November 2013. The Vice Chancellor,
Prof. Dato’ Dr. Zakaria bin Kasa presented the prizes to the 15 winners from 5
categories. I received a Samsung
Galaxy Tab 3 (7.0”) and a certificate.Anyway, what is most
important to me is the recognition that I finally got for my work on creating
pictorial artwork or graphics with the word processor and how to use them for
Visual Art Education lessons.I would
like to thank GOOGLE for providing free blogging platform that enables me to
publish my ideas and works on this subject.
That’s me receiving the prize from the Vice
It has been quite
some time I updated my art blog. This post is about drawing the picture of a
shark with the Drawing program in MS Word. I got the idea of drawing a shark
with MS Word from one of the illustrations that I’ve done for my Form 3 Visual
Art Education workbook. From the pencil drawing that I’ve done, I finally managed to
figure out how to actually draw a fully coloured digital drawing in Word. At first, I was sceptical that I could do it in Word but after trying, my effort paid off. The picture was drawn using the Curve line
tool. This tool has the ability to draw fluid lines and shapes. I used Edit
Points to fine-tune the shapes and lines that formed the picture.Finally, I coloured the subject with shades
and tints of neutral colours available in the Shape Fill colour palette.
This is the
pencil drawing of a shark.

should look rather natural and not so stiff.
doesn’t look that outstanding until it is coloured. I coloured it using the
colours available in the Shape Fill palette. I applied the studio
marker colouring technique to produce the dynamic graphics effects to make the
shark look more interesting. This drawing can also be done in
MS Word versions 2003 and below.
