The Helpful Art Teacher

welcome julia and how to make a repeat pattern hello hello. thank you Grace for having me this week! I am very excited to be here. Besides introducing you to some cool artists, giving sneak peeks and before and afters of some friends homes, and sharing my favorite new product finds, I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I have learned along the way of being a illustrator/pattern designer. One of the questions I frequently get emailed is -how do you make a repeat pattern? I thought it would be fun today to do a little tutorial showing you how simple it is even with a very complex drawing. On a clean piece of paper draw a design in the middle of your paper without letting any of the drawing touch the edges- this is very important. Once you finish the middle space as much as you want you are going to cut your drawing in half- scary I know- but that’s why computers are helpful. Next you are going to cut your drawing in half again the other way- (yikes!) And here’s my finished design:

Gustav Weiß tontechniken Wenn Glasuren sich beim Schmelzen zu Inseln zusammenziehen und Polster bilden (schrumpfen), besitzen sie eine große Oberflächenspannung. Früher glaubte man, es handle sich um eine Spannkraft auf der Oberfläche, es ist aber eine Energie, die aus dem Innern an die Oberfläche tritt. Somit ist „Oberflächenspannung“ dasselbe wie „Oberflächenenergie“. Patrick Tresset's robots draw faces and doodle when bored Pop along to the Tenderpixel art space in Soho this month, and you could grab a drawing of your mug, sketched by one of Patrick Tresset's robotic arms. The sketching bot is called Paul. It starts off the exhibition by scanning the room and looking for people with its motorised eye. When it spots a human face, it uses an edge detection technique called Gabor filter (which is modeled after cells in a human's visual cortex) to pick out the salient lines. A robotic arm, gripping a standard biro, then goes to work. The technology is based, in part, on "a project hosted in the computing department at Goldsmiths college where we investigate the sketching activity through computational modelling," Tresset told The rest is built from scratch, using "current research from computer vision, cognitive computing and robotics", and a hodge-podge collection of different programming languages, including Urbiscript, python and frameworks such as ROS.

Grid Paper PDFs Free Online Graph Paper / Grid Paper PDFs Downloadable and very printable, I find these PDFs extremely useful. Tip number one! Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... Tip number two! Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area. Tip number three! If you want the hexes aligned with the other edge of the paper, just make your paper size "11 x 8.5" and print the result in landscape mode!

Bioplastik herstellen | Bauanleitungen.NET | Jede Menge Bauanleitungen im WWW Der Begriff Bioplastik beschreibt laut Wikipedia Kunststoffe die aus nachwachsenden Rohstoffen hergestellt werden oder Kunststoffe die zB. durch Kompostierung natürlich abbaubar sind. Bioplastik findet vor allem Anwendung in der Verpackungsindustrie, Medizin, Verbundwerkstoffsherstellung und im Landschaftsbau. Mit selbstgemachter Bioplastik-Masse kann man mit relativ wenig Aufwand individuelle Objekte herstellen und modellieren. Hierzu gibt es im Internet bisher nur einige wenige Beispiele. Eine Bioplastik ähnliche Modelliermasse lässt sich zB. mit Speisestärke herstellen. Alle Zutaten werden ca. 10 Minuten in einem Kochtopf unter regelmässigem Rühren erhitzt. Die Herstellung und Modellierung von Objekten mit diesem Bioplastik gelingt am Besten im Verbund mit einem Trägermaterial wie zB. Unter nachfolgenden Links findet Ihr ein paar DIY-Projekte mit Bioplastik. Objekte mit Bioplastik herstellen: Ähnliche Artikel:

The three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue; they are the only colors that cannot be made by mixing two other colors. The three secondary colors are green, orange, and violet; they are each a mixture of two primary colors. The six tertiary colors (red-orange, red-violet, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-green and blue-violet) are made by mixing a primary color with an adjacent secondary color. Black, white and gray are not true colors (or hues). Value refers to how light or dark a color appears. Making Colors Lighter or Darker Intensity refers to the brightness or dullness of a color.
