Geometric Animal Head. This design will need to be symmetrical like your Avatar. But instead of doing the whole head you are going to do just half of it. This means you will to do the following:
First you will need to open a new that fits the 8 inch by 10 inch canvas. Next you will need to find an animal head “portrait” with a neck and an background (habitat or
“pattern”) and place this image in layer 1 and lock it.
Next create a new layer by going to the layers panel and clicking on the new
piece of paper. Layer 2 is where you will use the pen tool.
____Use the pen tool to create geometric
shapes on the second layer with a visible color stroke of 1 or thicker. Make sure each line and point was connected as a closed shape.
Your geometric design was created to
represent the face of the animal (can include neck, background as previously
noted) and you were able to group, create paths, and make the geometric design
a live paint illustration.
____You used the eyedropper tool (i) on the first
layer to get colors (realistic color palette) and you applied those colors via the live paint bucket (k) to
your geometric shapes to create a final Geometric
____ You used a pattern or some type of habitat illustration in the background behind you animal head to finish your piece.
Examples of great Geometric Animal heads from past classes. Please note that they are floating heads which you are NOT allowed to have.
