Assignment 1

Shadow Map of the Figure

For this assignment, work from a live model (hire a model or go to a local open studio). Refrain from using a photograph if possible.


Working from a live model, develop a shadow map of an extended figure pose. Begin with an accurate scheme, and then carve out a well-developed envelope. Refine the shape of the figure and contour the shadows. The contour of the envelope should accurately reflect the anatomy of the figure and look fully dimensional without rendering. 

 

Recommended working time: 6+ hours

 

We recommend repeating the assignment as many times as needed to achieve mastery before moving on to the next class.
