Transcript of Portraits

Portrait Drawing
Day 1:
Symmetry- When one side of something balances out or mirrors the other.

Proportion- How parts relate to one another with size and location.

Estimation: Not an exact measurement or a rough calculation.

Portrait: A picture, drawing of painting of a face.

Self-Portrait: A portrait an artist creates of themselves.

Contour: A line that represents the outline of a face, figure or mass.

Guidelines: Are light lines drawn to help with proportion- meant to erase.
drawing a face:
draw an oval
estimate the half
5 eyes on the line
corners of eyes
widest part of nose
between the "nose-line" and "eye-line" are where your ears go
Divide the lower half into
another half= "lip-line"
Draw in the pupils. Use as
guidelines for the widest
part of the lips
Use pupils as guides for
the arch of the eyebrow
10. Erase ALL guidelines and add a hairline.
11. Repeat!
Think about a scar that you have. Describe the story how you received a scar. What does it look like now? Where is it located?

What is identity?
Day 2:
Contour: A line that represents the outline of a figure or a mass.
Blind contour drawing: is done by looking intently at the edge of an object, but never looking at the paper while the pencil moves
Draw a
blind contour portrait
of your neighbor. Tip: NEVER LIFT YOUR PENCIL
Look how our proportion map works on our real faces... it will work on yours too!
Eye line (1/2 of head)
Nose line (1/4 of head)
Lip line (1/8)
Line up pupil= widest part of lips and arch of eyebrow
Corner of eyes = largest part of the nose
lupe fiasco
Day 2 continued...
Step 1:
Drawing the nose:
remember it's a form!
Proportions of
the face...

Daily Warm-up:

Draw an eye on your own with value.

-finish with the eye-lashes
A portrait can be as varied and limitless as our imaginations. It is more than a mere mirror reflection. A self-portrait can be an exact likeness or an abstract whirl of thoughts and feelings. It has the potential to create a myth, tell a story, suggest sadness or joy
We are going to review techniques that illustrate some ways to draw portraits this week, looking at features and blending techniques.

You are welcome to practice in any media you feel comfortable with. Take notes in your PP as we work and reflect on your personal work with techniques.

You will be creating a portrait in some way related to your theme. It doesn't necessarily have to be realistic but should illustrate technical skill and knowledge.

How can you incorporate a portrait to your theme?
