1. Yes he probably did do this by freehand it just took him a while to practice it.
2.No I think there were some kids just playin around trin to get a laugh.
3. I was think that these would be easy if you took your time and just looked in from a certain angle. It did look cool though.
4.It probably took a little while. It wouldn't be anything that you could do in 20 minutes.

2.i am suer that it is real but it does sound a little silly

Question 3#
i actually believed that it was coming out of the sidewalk and that there were holes in the sidewalk too.

Question 4#
I think that it would take a pretty long time because you have to find the right angle and everything, and then you probably have to draw it from the right angle too.

Video A) 1. I don't really believe he could have drawn a perfect circle.

2. I don't think perfect drawing circle contests exist. I think you could find evidence on the net that they do not exist.


Video B) 1. I was really surprised that they could make things look like they were actually there. Some of the were pretty funny and cool.

2. I think it would take a while to get the angles to draw the picture just right, and include all the
details.

1. I do believe what I am seeing because I saw the guy drawing the circle. There is no way he could pretend to draw the circle or try to fool the students because the students were right there and he was being videotaped.
2.I think perfect circles drawing exist because there are a bunch of other weird contests so why not have a perfect circle contest. You could find perfect circle contests on Youtube.
3.When I was watching the chalk drawings, I was amazed and I thought they were super cool. I was thinking to myself as the pictures went by, I said "How does he do that, and all by himself?" I wish I could do something like that.
4.I think it would take forever making these chalk drawings because with all the colors, shapes, shades,and angles he had to do. It probably take him forever to do those drawings. Maybe he tries to do the drawings faster and faster so it won't take as long. He probably has a lot of experience doing all these drawings. It really doesn't matter how long the drawings take because in the end it turns out to be a really cool drawing.

1. I don't completely believe what i saw, but it seemed real. Also if it was real, it must have taken allot of practice.
2. A perfect circle drawing contest probably does exist somewhere. But it's probably not widely known. Also I couldn't find anything on the internet about a perfect circle drawing contest.
3.When i saw the drawings i thought that they were really cool. Ive seen them before and weren't sure of them, but in the video you learned that you have to look at them from the right angle.
4. It would have taken a very long time to create a chalk drawing like these. Probably over five hours, maybe even longer.

1. I do believe that he drew a perfect circle but I have trouble believing the chalk drawings.

2. No, why would there be a contest for a perfect circle? There are more intresting things that deserve a contest.


3. When I saw the chalk drawings I was amazed and still have some doubt about them, just because they're so good.

4. I think that it would take about 2-3 days because the artist probably got really into it.

Anonymous said...

1. Do you really believe what you are seeing?
I do believe what I am seeing. I know that it probably takes a long time to perfect that, but his technique was great! I also saw the man perform it right in front of my eyes. He must have practiced long and hard because it would take a lot of practice to be able to draw a perfect circle.

Question # 2. Do you think perfect circle drawing contests really exist. Can you find evidence on the net?
I do believe that there could be a circle drawing contest. There are many weird contests in this world. This one does sound kind of cool to do because I would love to be able to draw a perfect circle. For evidence of this contest, you can go to youtube and look it up as well as go on google.


3. Describe what you were thinking about the drawings as you watched them. Were you amazed? Were you skeptical?
I was really amazed at the chalk drawings as I was watching the video. They were awesome! I really wonder how he got the drawings on that kind of an angle? I would never be able to draw like that. He made them so life like and that was just unbelievable.

4. How long do you think it takes to create a drawing like this?
I think it takes a very long time to create a picture like that. To get the angle right and the picture right on key would take a very, very long time.

Question # 1. Do you really believe what you are seeing?

Yes I do. I don't think he could fake drawing a perfect circle, so it must be perfect.


Question # 2. Do you think perfect circle drawing contests really exist. Can you find evidence on the net?

I think perfect circle drawing contests do exist. I am sure you can find them on the net because you can find all kinds of contests on the net.


Question # 3. Describe what you were thinking about the drawings as you watched them. Were you amazed? Were you skeptical?

I was amazed that someone could draw something with chalk that looked so real. I was confused that it had to be drawn and seen from an angle, but I guess in order to look 3-D it would have to be seen from a specific angle.


Question # 4. How long do you think it takes to create a drawing like this?

I think it would take weeks to draw something like that. You would have to figure out the perfect angle, mix the colors, draw it to make it look real, and then draw a shadow to make it seem realistic.

1, yes i do believe that they are drawing like that because it took time to know how to draw like that and when you get the hang of it then you will get better at what you are doing.

2, yes but to find if it is true or not go and look up his name and he said that he go to las Vegas to a contest to do it.

3, yes i was amazed because the way they draw it look like its there for real i really like the way they draw it look so perfect.

4, well for me it will take a long time for me because i never did nothing like this it will take time and months of a year and and i know it going to be hard for me to draw because i never new how to draw and when i try it do not come out right it will look ugly to me.

1. I do believe that it was a perfect circle that he drew but I think it took him some time to real draw the circle that perfect.

2. I do believe that there is a perfect circle drawing contest but I don't think I might be able to find it on the web.

3. Well as I were watching the drawings I at first I was little skeptical but then I thought maybe they practice for a long time.

4. Well I think it takes at least 1 hour and 30 minutes for a great artist 2 hours and 30 minutes for an average artist.

Video A.
1. No, I so not beleive what I am seeing. This man is amazing. How does he do that? I've heard a rumor that if you can draw perfect circle that is a sign you are going crazy.

2. I do not believe that perfect circle drawing really does exist. I believe that the man from the video, Alex Overwijk, can truly freehand draw perfect circles but there is no championship for the talent. Www.maisonbisson.com says,

"The Ottawa Citizen reports, however, that no such competition exists.'It’s my schtick with my kids. I’ve been telling them this story for 10 years,' the Citizen quotes Overwijk, who later revealed that he’s thinking about starting a competition."
Video B.
3. I was amazed with the drawings. This man has true talent. His drawings look so real and he is working on an unideal surface, side walk concrete. The artist uses his knowledge of perspective to create fantastic optical illusion.
4. These drawings must take him a long time. He has to work outside in what seems to be a busy area. This area must be distracting. Also, all his creations are extremely detailed which obviously takes time and lots of patience.

1. I think that it was really cool that he drew a perfect circle like that. It is most likely very challenging. I believe that he actually did it.
2.i don't think drawing a circle will earn him money. He isn doing much 2 make it he jus knows the way ou have to do it.
3.I was really amazed a what this guy could do. It was really cool what the drawings looked like. I think he puts alot of time into his work.
4. You could not do that in a little bit. You had to put alot of work in for he street work and fine arts.

1. I do really believe what I saw when he drew the perfect circle.

2. With this man's talent he could make a lot of money because it is very difficult to draw a circle free-handed and is very rare. This man could make a lot of money because he would be one of the few people in the world to draw a perfect circle free-handed and many people would pay for him to do draw the circle or for having the ability to draw it.

3. I was very amazed when I saw the drawings because it looked like they were real. From looking at the angle they showed the pictures it made me look closer and look even deeper in the picture.

4. These drawings are very different because his chalk drawings that he did were 3-D and seemed real as the fine art drawings were flat. Also, the fine art drawings were very simple and they were mostly about gardens, fruit, and flowers etc. as the chalk drawings were very complex and different.

1. Yes, I do believe the movie because some people have extremely cool and presise talents.

2. I think that he could sell some of his work and also perform live circle drawings for audiences.

3. I was not quite as amazed as some of my classmates might have been because I have seen him and his drawings before. I was not skeptical because there is proof that it is possible to make those drawings.

4. His chalk drawings are funnier and made more to amaze and amuze while his fine art paintings are more elagant and are probably used more to hang on someones wall never to be touched for another five or six hundred years.

2. He could bet big money that he could draw a perfect circle and nobody would believe him. Or he could be a magician.
3. I cannot believe that this is real either. These drawings looks so real and 3D but from a different angle they look flat and fake. I thought that it was a trick at first but when it showed the flat angle I believed it.
4. His chalk drawings and his fine art paintings are really good. i think that it takes true talent to do all of this but I do like the chalk drawings better. They look more real and 3D. But the paintings are still really good.

#1 I do believe it but only because I don't know of any editing software that could make him look like he had actually done that.

#2 I think so because all those people on the page were doing it and its hard to believe that all these were just an elaborate hoax.

#3 I was blown away at the dedication and the discipline that he has.

#4 I think that his oil paintings were more like regal and lazy and "capturing the beauty of nature" and that his chalk art was more like pop art kind of like paint by #s. NOT in a bad way.....

2. He could enter contests or show his "talent" to the world.

3. I thought the chalk drawings seemed amazing and they look like they must take a lot of time. At first I thought they might even be decals or something on the ground.
4. Both works of art are very detailed and really good, but to me they look like they're done by two different artists because even though the chalk drawing look really real, they have a cartoon look to them while the fine art paintings look completely realistic

#1.I do believe this because this guy seems like he has put much practice to prefect his talent.

#2 He could make abstract art right in front of people's eyes. They would be dumbfounded and would pay good money to witness this talent.

#3 At first I wanted to reach into the screen and touch it so see that it is real. Then when I saw the people walking alongside of the picture I realized it was 100% real.

#4 His fine art paintings have a much more natural feeling while his street paintings show out of the box thinking and a great imagination to go along with plain artistic talent.

2.well his ideas for the the paintings are different from the chalk drawings but they both like they are real.

Do you really believe what you are seeing?
1. Yes I do beleive what I am seeing becuase I have no reason not to. I saw him wash the board and then draw the circle... what is there not to believe?

2. I think he could ask people if they think he could make a perfect circle and then if they say no, then make a bet. If they say yes then you still make a bet and say how much you wanna bet that I can make a perfect circle. Either way, if they believe it or if they don't, you can still make profit off of them!!!

2)One way he can make money i by making bets with other people and win.


3)What i was thinking while watching that movie was that it was very nice and weird at the same time. I actually thought that it was very cool.

4)Well the difference between his chalk drawings and his fine art drawings is that well his fine arts drawings are like oil paint. With the oil paint he drew like a man painting a picture. Then he made a collage of Princess Diana. Which was very nice. He used news papers for some of the details which was very creative.

2. He could do a class or a video and sell it. Could make some money.

3. I think it's remarkable he can do that. I'm amazed by most of his painting. I am a little skeptic because some were so realistic and he was covered by some.

4. His oil paintings are not as realistic as his chalk drawings.

1) Yes, i do believe what I am seeing.

2) He could win contests, and make money that way. He could also be an architect or artist, and his talent could bring him a long way, and help him make money.

3) I was amazed that these people could actually make their art on a sidewalk look so 3-d an realistic. I was also thinking that you would have to be looking at these drawings at the right angle, or they would appear as real as they did in the video.

4) I think that his chalk drawings and his fine art paintings are extremely similar. His style is the same in both of them, and I can definitely tell that they were done by the same artist. They were just done with different materials.

1. Yes I do believe what I am seeing.

2. This man could make money using his talent by making amazing drawings out of circles and selling them.

3. When I was watching the drawings I was amazed! I thought that it couldn't be true that they looked SO real! But then it showed what they look like when you aren't looking at them from the right angle.

4. In the artists fine art drawings and street drawings they both have a great amount of detail to make them look just right. In his oil paintings he was very clear in what he was making. But in the street drawings they had to be perfect so they looked right. He had to look at the street drawings from just the right angles, other wise you can't tell what it is.

4. I assume it would take several hours, if not an entire day- though it would certainly depend on the elacrity of the whole

One way this man can make money by using his talent is enter in diffrent contests to win money, or perform shows of him drawing a perfect circle and charge for admission

The artist's fine arts paintings were much more realistic, but there sidewalk drawings were more cartoon like. I like the Chalk drawings better because they jump out at you.

Art affects my life by the wonderful nature and the color and textures and shapes of things I see around me in everyday life. Graphics and the tranquility of pictures and portraits make you feel good about the art that you see. The art can make you feel a certain way depending on what the picture is, and the colors of the pictures.

I believe what i am seeing. People just have to have a stead hand. Plus the exercise he did would help people he is getting his arm in motion of a perfect circle. You just have to pt force on the motion of your arm span.

#2
This man could make money doing this because it takes much time for factories to cut out a perfect circle. Like they say, time is money.

#3
I was wondering if they were really true. But then once the film said that they only look real from a certain angle, i believed it.

#4
The time is different. The chalk would take a lot longer. Plus in street drawing you have to cooperate with the weather. Raining could easily wash away your drawing. Where as fine arts its just come thing your not trying to do on pure nature which makes things much simpler.

I chose to see the artist's chalk drawings. What I was thinking as I watched them is that it's one of the most visually interesting art I've ever seen. Normally, when I go to like an art museum, I get bored. But this art I could stare at for a long time. I was wondering how you can draw something like that. It seriously looked like there was a hole in the sidewalk. I was skeptical if his drawings were any good, but when I saw them I quickly changed my mind. I think that his chalk drawings are more interesting and better than his fine art drawings. I'm not an art critic or anything but I can guarantee you that almost anyone would rather see and stare at his chalk drawings over the fine art ones.
