And Basic Art - First Project - Monster Character Generation
Due Date: 9/5/2013
Subject: Advanced Art

Monster People – DRAMA/TIC/HIGH Contrast – GET TO KNOW A NEIGHBOR – CLOS

E IN – Gesture - SYMBOLIZE PERS

ONALITY TRAITS – COMPOSITION/PICTURE PLANE: BackGround, Middleground, + Foreground – Engage Edges - COLLAGE 

Make a monster out of a new-to-you classmate!

· Each feature will come from a different source

· Generate a Character: collage the features together to create a “monster” with gesture

· Get to know how thumbnail sketches help your work to become more creative

· Understand how the composition grabs and holds attention if well planned

· Fill the space for more interest

· Run images off edges and through corners to engage the edges

· High contrast = high drama –> black BLACKS against WHITE whites

· Pay attention to framing

· Nothing unimportant in the picture, all the parts tell the story

· Color and texture choices are meaningful

· Color should be balanced around the composition

· Overlap some items for complexity and interest

· Divide the picture plane space at least three times, in odd amounts, to help organize the flow and create foreground, middle ground, and background

Try not to divide the plane in half or place important objects in the middle, this stops the eye from moving around
