Midterm Project – submit your work

MIDTERM PROJECT : Finalized Illustration using a full range of Value

DUE October 30th


For your Midterm Project you will be revising and completing either Project 1 or Project 2, using a full range of value.  You may use any combination of ink and pencil techniques, with digital finishing, to complete your work. Consider this a final art piece, ready to hang in a gallery or submit to a client for publication.

Final work will be judged on the uniqueness, clarity and cleverness of overall the concept, utilization of composition, skillful use of media, and of course overall technique.

You will be graded on both your Work Process Presentation, and on your Final Art.
