      • The images will be 8” x 10” or 10” x 8” and at a resolution of 300ppi.
  • G: Did you hand it in through the Google Classroom as a JPEG? Is it 300ppi? Is it 8″ x 10″ or 10″ x 8″? These minor details are important so that I can print the image up smoothly and easily. Make sure that you named it with your name as part of the title so that it is easy for me to identify.
That is a PHOTOSHOP IMAGE! Woo!

    • LAYERS are important here and I hope that you are using them.
    • This project WILL be printed in FULL COLOR. Make your resolution 300 dpi.
    • Continue to work with the self – portrait from last time in Adobe Photoshop. What are you taking away from the process of using PHOTOSHOP rather than ILLUSTRATOR to draw?
  • When you come in the time after next… you need to have 5 thumbnails AND the work of “Literature” with you. If you DO NOT HAVE SOMETHING WITH YOU, I will supply you with a work from your English Class (which is fine if you’d like by the way, you are reading it in class).
I wish he had a body… but this is a great start!

G: PORTRAITS: With a group of three, come up with 3 techniques, tools, approaches to a portrait that you as the model would like to work with for the image? As a group of three – you will 1) hold lighting, 2) Be the Photographer, and 3) be the model for the photograph. We will talk about the cameras for a brief bit in the beginning, then we will be heading down to the painting studio and then out into the building with cameras and lights for 30 minutes (that is 10 minutes per person… so be thinking about the process and the poses that you might want.) Take 5 minutes NOW to look over PORTRAITS in Google to begin to THINK of ideas… you will be using these ideas as IDEAS. Have your sketchbook ready to make notes and quick sketches of the ideas. We will be using an 10” x 8” format at 300ppi.

ALSO – When this work of art is DONE (3 class periods) we will  begin to illustrate NOT from a photograph, but from our own drawings, gathering of images, our own ideas. Illustration of another work of art – LITERATURE!
