Wk 12 – Activity – Teach One

Self_Portrait_III_In_Progress_by_sgchipman This week’s activity is to teach one activity. I chose to teach how to create a self-portrait sketch like the one on the left. Too often, people say that their best artwork are stick figures, and can not do any better than that. That was me and pretty much still is me. So i decided to find out how to create a self-portrait and teach it to the class as well.

Step 1.

Draw the shape of your head without any hair or features. Just the outline of your head. Make sure to have a mirror or photo of yourself to draw this self-portrait.

Step 2.

Draw a line halfway from the top of your head to your chin. This will be where your eyes will be drawn. Make sure to draw it very lightly, so you will be able to erase it easily later.

Step 3.

Draw a vertical line down the center of the head, in order to keep the features symmetrical.Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 6.20.24 PM

Step 4.

Draw a short line halfway between the eyeline and the chin. Then draw a line halfway between the line you just drew and the chin.

Step 5.

Draw your eyes first as this will be the guideline for the rest of your features.

Step 7.

Draw the rest of your features as realistically as possible. Then erase any extra lines. Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 6.26.00 PM

Step 8.

Use shading techniques to create a more realistic version of yourself. Just like the sketch shown at the very top.
