DMS1: Final Project

For your final project of the year, you’ll be asked to demonstrate the various skills you’ve developed during the year. Specifically:

  • Composition
  • Use of Color
  • Contrast
  • Perspective
  • Figure Drawing
  • Landscape Drawing
  • Traditional medium
  • Digital medium

To demonstrate your level of mastery of these areas, you’ll be required to create three products, a study, a painting using the Oil Pastels, and an image created via Photoshop. The Oil Pastel and the Photoshop images should attempt to be replications of each other, and both should be based on the study. The images should be landscape images that include a building in the middle distance with three figures. Two of the figure should be in the foreground with the third near the building.

  • The Study: This will be a simple sketch on half a page with pencil and paper that will serve as your layout for your other two images. One study will get you a 2.5. Multiple studies will increase your grade into the 3.0 and 4.0 range. You can also include Oil Pastel studies of individual elements in your image.
  • The Painting: This should be completed on a full sheet of paper using Oil Pastels.
  • The Photoshop Image: The dimensions of this image should be 11×8.5 with a resolution of 300ppi.

All three images should need to be turned in by the last day of the school year.
