PROJECT 3 : EDITORIAL ILLUSTRATION

PROJECT 3 : EDITORIAL ILLUSTRATION

Overall Project Description:

 

Create an Editorial Illustration for use to accompany an article in a magazine, printed or online. This project is broken into stages with peer critique and critical feedback given at each stage, spanning 4 weeks in total.

  • The final illustration must be created using a limited palate of black, white, and one other color
  • It should be made using a combination of traditional drawing / inking skills and digital coloring.
  • Final art should be made to fit the real magazine’s specs. (Approx 9” x12”)

Work will be judged on the clarity and cleverness of the overall concept, thoughtful utilization of composition, the use of value, and of course the skillfulness of overall technique.
