    Ben, I like how you tried to make your picure you mad about drawing.
    I also like Sydney’s drawing of someone drawing. It kind of makes you have perspective about how people look and what you look like when you are drawing.

      I completely agree with you on Sydney’s drawing. My favorite hobby is drawing and when I do draw I am oblivious to the “outside” world. It’s sort of nice to see what I may look like. I, though, would probably be much more involved.

      I agree with you on Ben’s drawing. Ben even gave it red around the eyes to make it look even more mad.

    Conrad, I like how you incorporated Mt. Fuji in your drawing. It reminds me of all the pictures we saw at our last meeting. It is just so symbolic and such a major part of Japan. I was going to draw a village but I decided against it since it was sort of intimidating. I think you captured it really well.

      I like his Mt. Fuji too. It has a big meaning to Japan, and it is beautiful.

    Persephone, I like the detail you used in your picture, and the colors. The tree looks beautiful, and I am honestly impressed with your drawing skill. 😀

      Her work is impressive. And it’s even tops the picture in the book snice she even added a background! (which if I do remember right, there was just a women.)

    Persephone, as usual, your talent is outstanding. It gives me similar vibes as the orignal picture itself in the book.
    I also like Jacob’s drawing, the shrine’s structure was really cool, especially the top of it. I thnk yours caught my eye along with Persephone’s.

    Jake, I really like the detail, texture, and shading you put into your drawing. It really brings out the beauty. And Ben, I love the colors of yours. I can easily tell that you spent a lot of time on that picture.

    Bobby’s drawing is one of my favorites because it looks like he never had to erase anything.I also really like the fact that Ben’s drawing looks a lot like Mr. Doerr to my perspective.

    I have to agree with Elise. Your work astonishes me and gives me sense that it was an actual Japanese work. Great work! 😀

      Another piece I found brilliant was Bobby’s. It was so amazing dude! That looked like the exact one from the book. Plus, I adored that way you made it sideways, giving me the feeling that it was on a scale, showing the one higher up is winning. Keep it up man! 🙂

    I absolutely agree! Bobby your drawing is amazing, I mean I knew you could draw but i never knew you could draw this good! It really portrays the detail in their sense of clothing choices.

    Persephone your drawing is beautiful! I love the bright colors and the details of Mt. Fuji. I also like how it shows detail within the sky to show that it’s not there just to be there, it has a purpose. In this picture, the purpose is to show emotion.

    Jacob I liked the way that you shaded in the picture. It gave the sense of perspective and shadows. Persephone I really liked the colors you used. They all sort of blend in with each other and give a sense of peace, which is one of Japan’s main focuses.

    • October 24, 2011 5:14 pm

      I liked how Persephone put effort not only in the drawing but the coloring, so I agree with that, and I think jakes shading really brought his together

    i think Jake’s picture is very good and the shading gave great detail to the photo. Also it was very impressive that Jake drew that.

    I also thought that Persephone’s drawing was very artistic and creative she obviously put a lot of time and work into it.

  14. October 24, 2011 5:08 pm

    I don’t think there were any that I didn’t like ! I really like how Jessica colored her drawing, and nates was fun too ^_^.

    I loved everyone’s drawing. I especially like Persephones drawing. The thing that I loved about everyone’s drawing was they tried to add their own touch to each of their drawings. Like trying to add a little bit of each of them. That made the picture even more special and valuiable.

    I really like Persephone’s she can really draw you can tell she put alot of thought and effort into her drawing of the view of mt fuji. Another of my favorites would have to be Lyssette it shows ALOT of detail .

    I like how when Shane took the photo of his drawing it looks like in is bright in the shrine, and darker everywhere else. It make it feel like the Shrine is holy or something.

    I love how perfect bobby’s drawing is, and how it looks like he never had to erase or change any of his lines. It looks like like he literally copied it from the book.

      I agree, it looks so perfect it’s unreal. I sure wish I could draw like that.

  19. January 3, 2012 12:23 pm

    I love the background in Lyssette’s drawing. The mountian looks fanstatic and if I could, I’d go in that picture and hike to the top.
