Students will be working on their Final Project all week. "The Jungle" covers just about everything we've discussed in class excluding Linear Perspective. The objective is to create a continuous field composition of organic forms while using value patterns and texture to establish a rhythm and movement as well as a sense of light, surface quality and volume.
1. Choose a dominant form
2. Establish supporting areas of different forms using the design principles similarity, repetition and grouping.
3. Fill the entire page creating a continuous field (shallow space). The should be no blank areas; even the background should have a texture.
4. Locate the light source and address value and texture developing a rhythm and movement across the composition.

Steven's drawing above exhibits a good sense of the underlying bone structure illustrated in the subtle shifts of value across the face. The hair is typically a problem area; usually getting "over-drawn". Steven has done a great job with his hair by laying down tonal areas and then working reductively as well as additively to rendering groupings of the hairs and highlights.
