Digital Media: Digital Portrait Drawing with the Wacom Tablet

This week we will learn about digital drawing using the Wacom tablet and Adobe Photoshop. We'll begin with a fairly simple drawing that will allow us to explore the possibilities of using these tools. Each student has been assigned an artist who uses media art or helped pave the way for it and you will have to find a high quality image of the artist and create a detailed tracing on a new layer in Photoshop. We will do this step by step together in class but the first step is finding a good, high quality, large image to work from and formatting it in Photoshop with a 300 resolution and a medium size (around 8").
When you begin the drawing make sure you are on the layer (not the background), that you save frequently, and that you are working with a color not found in the image- it helps to zoom in while drawing as well. The drawings will be due on Friday November 1 and then we will make that tracing into a more detailed rendering, add background colors, a quote from the artist, a small frame, and a #Needlesclass watermark to share on social media. The final project will be due at the end of class on Wednesday November 8 Above are 2 examples of the project from a previous classes.
Also remember to study our Digital Media Class Quizlet to prepare for the Q1 vocabulary test on Friday. Tomorrow we will prepare by playing Quizlet Live.
