5. Full Spreads
A collection of studies and 3 layered line drawings from the beginning of the quarter. It served as a practice and warm up exercise. Even more, it helped in making our decision for the final object choice. Key Notes: Drawing is a form of communication, a way of seeing; It consists in observation and visual research; It requires diligence, investment, precision, patience, unity Key Words: Tangible, energetic, rewarding, spontaneous 2

freehand analytical drawing
Create a 3 layered line analytical drawing of an industrial object. Key Notes: Things to keep in mind when drawing are: line weight, your posture, your drawing boardâ€™s position, linear perspective, intuitive gesture, proportion, transparency Key Words: Buzz, speed, visible thought, confidence
Final Object Studies top: 5 min. Blind Contour Sharpie Marker bottom: Negative Space Study Prismacolor Markers
Quick Object Studies top: Prismacolor Pencils bottom: Graphite Pencils and Pen Key Notes Layer 1 is general, approximate, for reference and exploration, for establishing proportions.
1 hour Object Studies Prismacolor Pencils Key Notes Layer 2 is for refinement, accuracy, making a statement, getting into details, confirming
Compositional Studies Point Ball Pen Key Notes Avoid negative interaction with the corners, centering or tangents. Round corners add a bonus to the composition

Final Drawing Prismacolor Pencils
linear technical illustration
Create a mechanical illustration using 3 different line weights, based directly on Project 1. It has to be executed using Adobe Illustrator (mostly employing the pen and shape tool). Key Notes: Line weight variation communicates depth, distance, surface contact, implies and focuses. Key Words: Construction, transparency, visibility, emphasize 18
Negative Space Study First Illustrator Attempt
Line Weight Studies Sharpie Markers Key Notes Primary line weight is used where the negative space meets the positive space. Softer line weight is used for the interior that isnâ€™t clear.
Line Weight Studies Sharpie Markers Key Notes Secondary line weight is used for the interior of the object, definable breaks.
Line Weight Studies Final Illustration
Create a monochromatic rendering of the chosen object based directly on Project 2. Key Notes: The experience is the development of the skill and techniques of media rendering emphasizing the six categories of light and materiality of the object. Key Words: Surface, texture, material, volume, light, space
Practice Rendering Choice of Cube or Cylinder, depending on which one resembles the object
Practice Rendering Graphite Pencil
Media Experiment Prismacolor Markers Key Notes Every little square should look like it was precious when rendered. Establish surface/edge quality.
Final Rendering Canson Paper Prismacolor Pencils
Create a graphic representation of the object, based on Project 1 through Project 3. Key Words: Shape, economy, expression, unified, elegant
