Overall Project Description:
For the next project you will be creating an Editorial Illustration for use to accompany an article in a magazine, printed or online. The project is broken into stages with peer critique and critical feedback given at each stage, and will span 4 weeks in total.
The final illustration must be created using a limited palate of black, white, and one other color and 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”)
Final work will be judged on the uniqueness, clarity and cleverness of overall the concept, utilization of composition, skillful use of media, use of a full range of value, and of course overall technique.
