Homework 2 draw a portrait

  1. 1. Year 7 homework: Create a portrait of someone from ‘life’. Show that you have used the rules of proportion and tone to create a realistic drawing. Level 4: Level 5: Level 6: Full use of the page. Good shading that shows contrast between light and dark areas (shadows) Good proportions i.e. features (eyes, ears, etc..) are in the correct position. Not only is there a good use of proportion but there is a good likeness and character (Ask a relative/friend to see if they recognise who the drawing is of) Good proportion, a good likeness and a range of tones. Different textures (skin, hair etc) are shown through different marks. Plan your drawing first- Here is a recap of how to plan your proportions: •First off, start by drawing an oval or egg-shape. •Draw a straight line across, at about half way down the face, to indicate where the eyes will be. Divide this line into five. •Draw a line about half way between the eye line and the bottom of the chin - this will be the bottom of the nose. •Draw a line about half way between the nose line and the chin - this indicates the placement of the mouth. •Draw a line halfway between the eyeline and top of the oval. This is a good guide for the hairline. •Draw a line right down the center of the head, top to bottom. This is used to make sure the face is drawn symmetrically, and not lopsided. •The centre of the eyes usually line up with the outside of the mouth.
