Peer Critique Drawings
For these drawings, we were given a printed image of an animal. Then we were told to draw them, without tracing them, onto the printer paper. Once we had finished drawing the first draft, we were given partners with who we had critique sessions. In these sessions, our partners told us what we could improve upon in our first draft to our second draft. Using those pieces of advice, we continued on to draw our second drafts. Once those were done, we once again had critiques to help each other improve our drawings. Then, with that advice in mind, we proceeded on to draw our third and final drafts. Personally, I really liked this assignment because it was my first experience with a critique and it showed me that constructive criticism can help improve the quality of your work. I am most proud of my third draft because if you compare that to my first draft, you can definitely see the massive leap of quality in the drawings. If I could revise this process, I would probably add a few more critiques and drawings because that immensely improve the quality of the work. Look at the improvements in the drawings. That was with two critiques; now imagine them with two or three more. The Habit of the Heart and Mind that I used the most during this assignment was perseverance, because I definitely am not the greatest artist in the world.
