Digital Media: Digitally Illustrated Artist Portrait and Quote

To close out our short film project we will review some of the post-production terms using QUIZLET (learn, match and test) and we'll have a quiz when I return from the Art Educators conference next week. Next we'll be moving on to digital drawing on 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. Next each student will draw a portrait of a famous living artist in celebration of Youth Art Month with a quote from that artist. The artist's were assigned below so you will have to find a large, 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"). Above and below are two examples of this project from previous years when we covered important figures in technology and writing.
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. After making the drawing we add background colors, add a quote from the artist and small frame then add a #Needlesclass watermark to share on social media. The final project will be due at the end of class on Wednesday March 20
