Expressive Figures

Through a drawing medium or mixed media you are to create a drawn image of a figure that emphasizes expression. Use your classmates as models. Whether it is full of motion or emotion is up to you.

The primary goal of this assignment is to be expressive NOT realistic. However it must retain most of its reality.

HELPFUL HINTS:•Use the Viewpoint to help you.•Reflections may assist what you are trying to get across.•Multiple figures may be needed to get your expression through to the viewer.•Keep the negative space in mind and what it is doing for your figure.•Look to examples in the textbooks for ideas.
