The last Drawing

The last Drawing

Hi peeps, It seems I missed one of the posts for the learning project. But now it is high time to focus on the last one.

Be my Co-pilot!

Be my Co-pilot!

So, here are the details of my recent exploration of some fascinating online tools. First on the list was DALL-E2, which piqued my interest. However, there was a little hiccup: it requires credits, and unfortunately, I couldn’t generate images because I didn’t have an account with credits. Next up was midjourney. I was eager to explore, but I must confess, the interface had me second-guessing. It looked a bit intimidating, almost like a scene from a hacking movie. So, I…

Tips and Tricks : Navigating Beginner Drawing Challenges

Tips and Tricks : Navigating Beginner Drawing Challenges

I was keen to start this week’s learning project with beginner’s tips and simple drawing and coloring tutorials from 5 Minute Crafts. Initially, I chose to draw lips by looking at the video, thinking it would be a piece of cake. However, reality hit me like a ton of bricks, and these lips soon turned into incomprehensible circles on my paper. After trying three different lip drawings, I was disappointed and decided to take a step back. 5 second videos…

Hour of Code Adventure: From NASA to Minecraft

Hour of Code Adventure: From NASA to Minecraft

Hey there! So, I decided to jump into Code.org’s Hour of Code, starting with the NASA activity. Gotta say it gave my brain a workout, and I didn’t quite conquer it. No big deal, though! I joined a Zoom instruction session, got some helpful tips, and then switched over to the Minecraft activity. Surprisingly, Minecraft was more my speed, even though these activities are aimed at kids. Maybe I’m just not used to playing these kinds of games for a…
