Difference between Isometric, Oblique and Orthographic Drawing. :D

Isometric Drawings: They are 3D drawings that shows three sides of a figure which are all in dimensional proportion. For these type of drawings, the angles are not all at 90 degrees. They are in fact drawn 30 degrees from the base line.

Oblique Drawing: An oblique drawing is a 3D drawing with the most distinguished side facing the person that observes it. It is 45 degrees to the horizontal.

Orthographic Drawings: These drawings are views ( front, side, back, etc. ) of and object, but an orthographic view is only one side.

Isometric drawings are 30degrees from the horizontal line but oblique drawings are 45degrees the the horizontal. Orthographic are drawings that show side of the object. Isometric drawings show three side of the figure all in dimensional proportion but oblique drawings are drawings where the most distinguished side is facing the observer.

ADMT-Environment :D

There are quite a few types of environment, I picked a few types that i find more familiar and some quite unfamiliar ones. Let's see...

1. Environmental Science- It is a interdisciplinary field that involves both physical and social sciences. It causes the surrounding conditions that affect man and other organisms as natural and human resources are interdependent, which means that the use or misuse or one affects the other.

2. Natural Environment- It is commonly referred to as simple the environment, causes all living and non- living things occurring naturally on Earth or some other region thereof. There are some components that help to distinguish the concept of Natural Environment , such as the complete ecological units that function as NATURAL systems without massive human intervention, including all vegetation, animals, microorganisms, soil, rocks, atmosphere and natural phenomena. As well as the universal natural resources and physical phenomena that lack clear cut boundaries, such as air, water, climate, energy, radiation, electric charge, and magnetism, which are not originating from human activity.

3. Environmental Art- It refers to art dealing with ecological issues or the natural, formal, political, historical or the social context. In the early phases of environmental art, it was the most associated with sculpture, but now it encompasses many media.
(adapted from : )

I think that the environment is the surroundings that we live in, but it does not only contain living things, but non- living things as well. We humans depend on other living things, and they depend on us as well. Non-living things are made by humans, not made naturally. things that are part of the natural environment occur naturally, not by humans. Environmental Art is made by humans, it started from sculptures and now it has been improved into media.

ADMT Lesson 1: personal reflection.

1. What does ADMT means to you?
2. What are the attitude that an ADMT student should have?
3. What are you aspiration as an ADMT student?
4. How do you think you can achieve your aspiration?
5. Sketch how the world would look like without art, design, media and technology. Describe briefly your sketch. [Take a picture of your sketch and post it on your personal blog.

ADMT means to use other ways of drawing or designing art besides pencil and paper but media and drawing using our learning devices. It is an improvement of artwork using technology and we can edit the parts of the drawings we made to make it look better.

I think that an ADMT student should be able to appreciate art done by other classmates and by famous artists. We should be eager to learn the different ways to draw or create art, and to listen and follow the instructions given by our teacher.

I aspire to make a drawing that expresses my usual moods and thinking, as well as attractive and beautiful strokes that can be admired by many.

I think that I must not only listen to the teacher but to do some research and practice of my own during free time after lessons. I can also look at the many different types of drawings done by artists to see how I could improve on my own artwork.

There are two different views of this photo as one is Tinted using picasa while the other more blur picture was transferred directly from my phone. I think that the world would be dull, black and white without art as art brightens up peoples' day. The girl is sad that the sky was so dull, no pattern of the stars, and the balloons she lost grip of do not have colours on them. Even the grass is not green. I imagine the world to be this dull if there was no art in it.
