Figure Distortion

Step 1: Students chose an image of a face, then created a grid in equal intervals over the image.
Step 2: Students sketched a distorted gird with the same number of squares. Each square was filled to correspond with the undistorted image, resulting in a distorted face.

Step 3: A similar distorted grid was drawn and filled in on drawing paper using shading techniques and several sized pencils.

Title: Old Woman
Date: 04/2006

Materials: pencil on paper
Technique: distorted sketching as outlined in Steps 1-3

Goal: practice drawing from a grid; learn shading and drawing techniques
