Project Description

For your final project, draw a portrait of you or your family as robots.  

Look around online and through your photo albums if you have any for great portrait poses.  

Think about the physical and emotional characteristics that define the subjects of your drawing.  Are they blocky and serious? Are they gentle, with no sharp corners? Are they flighty? Overworked?  Multi-talented? Think about how you can incorporate those things in your portrait.

Post your projects in the gallery.  I can’t wait to see what you draw.
