Written Exam The written portion of the final exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions, and one question that asks you to put the color wheel colors in order. Below is the the study guide for the exam. You will be given the definition from the guide and will choose the correct word from a choice of 4. Most of the definition on the guide are in bold type.
1. Choose a magazine photo of a face - The face should be looking straight at you with both sides of the face clearly visible (large, facing directly forward, minimal words, close up). Your photo will be due to me May 27. I
CORRECT - Close Up, Straight Forward
WRONG - 3/4 View
WRONG - Profile Photo
2. I will return your photo cut in half.Glue one side of the image to a plain sheet of paper using glue stick. Do not put any glue on the side where you will be drawing. Be sure to leave enough space on the sheet of paper for you to complete the missing half..
3. Before drawing, take a moment to observe the face. To figure out where the facial features you'll be drawing should go, use your ruler to measure the horizontal (sideways) and vertical (up-and-down) distances from the photo's specific features to the line of symmetry. For instance, the distance from the bridge of the nose to the inner corner of the eye would be the same on both sides of the face, so measuring from the inner corner to the line of symmetry on one side will tell you how far away the line is to the other inner corner.
Most faces are symmetrical—that is, both sides of the face have similar proportions. In fact, having a symmetrical face is a mark of beauty. The more symmetrical a face is the more beautiful it is considered to be. That's why, throughout the centuries, many works of art featuring faces or designs in paintings, sculptures, and patterns seek to have symmetry.
4. With these measurements, you can map out beforehand where the drawn facial features should go by lightly placing pencil marks where you've calculated them to be.
5. Lightly draw the other half of the face placing things in the correct positions. Do not outline face darkly. Your shading should show the edges and details of your face. Draw a light outline. Do not scribble in the hair. Draw the basic shape. Draw completely before you shade.
6. Shade the entire face using all five values (White, Light Grey, Grey, Dark Grey, Black).
Look for the light source in your photo graph and continually reference it as you shade.
Avoid smearing your shading by placing a piece of paper under your hand as you work.
Start out with your lightest values leaving white highlights the color of the paper. Remember the lightest value of skin tone is still darker than the white paper. Only highlights should be left white.
Do not press hard. Work in layers. If you want to make a tone darker, shade over it to add a second or third layer
Your drawing should have highlights, mid-tones and shadows.
