Project Description

Assignment:

Make a sea monster! Create a drawing of a fantastic water-bound beast inspired by an aspect of you and your place on the map.

Project steps:

Develop your monster by answering questions I addressed in the early parts of the lesson. Download the class notes for reference.

Create an illustration inspired by your answers. The drawing should resonate with your personal inspiration. Be expressive, emotive and unique in your vision!

Sharing Your Work:

Share your final art and/or progress with the class by uploading to the "Your Project" section. If you have any questions or need more tips, please let me know! I'm happy to help!
