The goal of the project is to use color pencils as a sophisticated artistic media - we're talking about something more than your grade school cousin's crayolas. You will be using color pencils to create an animal portrait where you demonstrate:
- Realistic drawing/detail
- Rich color
- Deep value
The examples that we viewed in class can be found here, and if you are interested in looking at other examples of color pencil drawing, try searching for "color pencil painting." It will most likely lead you to more interesting results.
Also, the video of the Jennifer Lawerence drawing is embedded below. Never underestimate the power of YouTube to find excellent time lapse and drawing demo videos. The artist is Heather Rooney, and her Youtube channel can be found at the link below.
As of right now, the deadline is set for end-of-class, next Friday. Check the calendar for any updates. Good luck!
