Assignment six. I’m wanting something for our illo3 wall. make use of that large printer. I would like our class to create illustrations for a horizontal print of 11 full length portraits on one sheet, a Watkins line up. Inspired by the great Josh Cochran, we are going to do full length drawings of classmates and colleagues at Watkins. Pay attention to clothing details and the specifics of what the person is wearing. This is a link to a example of what I am envisioning, a project Josh completed for the Dubai Metro. Your drawing will have the person in a standing position and will be silhouetted against a white background. Sketch deadline: posted by Tuesday, 23rd, 10:00 pm. Final art due on Thursday February 25th, 2010, 10:00 pm, posted.
My recommedation is to take a photo of your Watkins celebrity to work from and then if time permits to do a life drawing at the same time you take the photo. Work from both the life drawing and photo reference. Do not trace the photo. Simply use it as reference as you work out your drawing, before inking. Extra credit for any of you that do two or more Watkins celebrities. Dan in his black hat, full length pose would be a winner. Someone grab a camera.
