Bubbles in Chocolate Milk

Creating a picture using only 4 lines, 5 dots, and 1 curve seemed hard at first because I had no idea what I could create with that. However, the assignment “4 lines, 5 dots, 1 curve” (3.5 pts) asked you to do just that. However, this assignment made me think about what was actually important to the picture because it was impossible to add extra stuff to the picture. I decided to start with the lines (partly because it came first in the prompt and partly because they are simple). A couple lines and a curve could make what looks like those glasses that you can get milkshakes in at diners. To use my special glass and by 5 dots, I decided to create a picture of bubbles in chocolate milk:

chocolate milkI have never seen bubbles like this, but I attempted to make them seem somewhat realistic by being kind of see through, and higher on one side than the other. That is what happened whenever I blew bubbles in my milk. The straw is red like the thick ones you get with milkshakes (and it is a milkshake glass as well), but you can’t blow bubbles in milkshakes. However, if I had a special glass every time I drank chocolate milk, I would be a very happy camper. The chocolate milk idea also came from my idea that such a minimalist picture reminds me of what a child would create: pictures with no background and no realism that show what is truly important¬† in their mind. Likewise, I created this picture in Paint and didn’t worry if it was askew or unrealistic. The important thing here is the great feeling you get when you blow bubbles in chocolate milk.
