You will be creating two self-portraits - one portrait will be done using Adobe Illustrator. We may also use photoshop to add color and shading to our basic portraits. Some samples of the digital versions can be found here.
The other portrait will be created using traditional illustration tools like colored pencils, graphite pencils, pastels or a combination of these media.
Most of you who are veterans have already finished these Illustrator work exercises. If you feel like you have the skills to skip to the last tracing exercise, do so. Otherwise, today I want you to review these stepped exercises to become comfortable with the pen tool. This will take you some time - don't rush through any of the steps. I will be looking at where you are tomorrow morning, so make sure you do some work with these today.
It may also be a good idea to get your portrait taken today so that we can use them as trace objects for the digital portrait. The camera and lights are set up perfectly for this type of portrait.
