▬ ASSIGNMENT: 235 drawings! (+235 points) (+15 bonus if on time!)
1. 3 different lenses: Find an example of a wide-angle portrait, 50mm portrait, and telephoto portrait on flickr. Sketch them and observe the differences. What happens to the facial features?
2. 10 skulls: Draw 10 skulls, with perspective in mind, at different angles and views. Draw 5 from reference, and 5 from imagination.
3. 20 structural portraits: After creating a basic head mannequin, use it while drawing from reference(with the neck and shoulders) at 20 different angles, keeping the eye level and perspective in mind.
[example, but with structure and more angles]
4. 8 portrait rotations: Choose one horizon line and rotate a bald head 360 degrees to the left. (i.e, Front view, Front ¾ view, side view, back ¾ view, back view, back ¾ view, side view, front ¾ view.) Attempt this from imagination and try to see where your ‘knowledge gaps’ are.
5. 50 portraits, alternating between reference and imagination: Using photo or video reference, draw portraits building from the underlying structure. Alternate between reference and imagination (25 imagination, 25 reference). Pay attention to the perspective and approximate the horizon to the best of your abilities. Draw the neck and shoulders as well to understand the connection.
6. 1 self portrait: Using a mirror, draw yourself from any angle and build up from a head mannequin. Note your eye level. Pay close attention to what your features look like at the chosen angle. Go slow! Place the features to the best of your abilities and measure your proportions carefully.
7. 1 portrait from imagination: Using all your previous practice, attempt a portrait from imagination, building from the underlying structure and perspective.
8. 10 hand structure drawings: Find ten photos and locate the underlying hand structure (hand mannequin), then attempt to draw the hand.
9. 2 drawings of your hand: Draw your hand from back view and palm view and pay careful attention to the large shapes and proportions. Study the proportions beforehand in a book like Loomis or Hogarth. Which finger extends the furthest? Where does the thumb end? How does the hand connect to the wrist from these views?
10. 50 hands, reference and imagination: From film (see below for film links), photography, or life, draw 25 hands from reference, and 25 from imagination. Draw the underlying structure and perspective first. (Make yourself a basic hand mannequin) Also draw the wrist at least, observing how it connects to the hand.
11. 10 feet structure drawings: Find ten photos and locate the underlying foot structure, then attempt to draw the foot.
12. 2 drawings of your foot: Draw your foot from underneath and on top. Note the proportions. You may use a mirror on the ground or have someone take a photo.
13. 50 feet, reference and imagination: Wikifeet has plenty of feet. Draw the underlying structure and perspective first. Draw the lower legs and ankles and observe how it connects to the feet.
14. 1 final drawing for the challenge: Create a final drawing for theDismissal of the Shrine Maiden challenge, building on all the previous knowledge the past three weeks.
**BONUS: Create 10 anatomical studies of the hands, head, and feet to help you understand the form better.
