Print Sketch Critique

1. Why is texture so important to have in your sketches?
So you can tell what the animal or object is. it helps make it look more real.
2. Why is it neccessary for you to have several references of each animal and each background? Explain.
so you get diffrent views of the animal. also see diffrent backgronds. also what works well together.
3. When you look at your sketches are you able to see which sketch is the strongest and will make the best print? How do you know this? 

No not yet. Because i havent finshed all of them yet.
1. Explain your experience working on a team and executing your ideas for the mural.
working with a team was fun. You each worked togethter and got it done faster. It wasn't really my idea. i left early the day we were planning so my group picked but i liked it.
2. Explain the importance of collaboration when working on a team. 
Its really important to collaborat everyones ideas. It makes everyone a part of the group. also sometimes you will like other ideas more then your own.

3.  How successful was this project? Explain how and why.
I think it was successful. i think this because people can interact with it. also because we practice using blending.
4. Explain how you feel about creating artwork that others can interact with. Ex. Invoving the whole school? 
I really liked making it. looking at my friends post photos on facebook and instagram with our art is cool.
