Assignment #5

The Figure in an Artwork    – Due Monday, October 19

We have studied the figure in 3D – that should really help you with illustrating the figure in 2D.  You are to draw, paint, ink wash, watercolour, pencil crayon, pastel, or any other drawing or painting medium create a full page artwork that features a human figure in it.  I am encouraging you to show off your figure illustration ability.  Any pose, any composition.  The choice is all yours.

Be sure to make it a full page composition.

You will be marked on the accuracy of the proportions of the figure.

Your handling of the medium that you use is also important, so select a medium that you enjoy using.

Make the composition artful – perhaps it might tell a story? emote a strong feeling? describe a character? It should impart a visual impact.

Use references if you need to, but make the illustration your own rather than copying another artist’s artwork.
