Now that you’ve learned about the proper techniques and correct proportions for drawing facial features, you will practice drawing at least one feature in an imaginative and creative way.
Draw at least one human facial feature in a surreal manner. Surrealism is an artistic and literary movement from the early 20th century. Surreal artwork features the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions, and non sequitur (subject matter defies logic).
Choose at least one facial feature to focus on: Eye(s), Nose, Mouth, or Ear(s)
Come up with a concept for making the feature surreal somehow
You may include several features. Only one has to be surreal.
Your drawing should fill at least half of a 9x12 sketchbook page. You may leave empty space around the imagery, and I’ll assume that’s where your composition ends.
Use drawing pencils or another medium of your choice
You may add color, or combine drawing media (i.e. pastels, charcoal, etc.).
You should only use other media if you feel confident enough in your abilities! A grayscale pencil drawing can still make a strong statement.
This needs to be a rendering of some kind! Do not just do a line drawing with no value.
Part of surrealism is about exaggeration for a dramatic effect! If you choose to exaggerate the proportions of your imagery (example: bulgy eyes, or a long, pointy nose), make sure it looks purposeful. You don’t have to exaggerate anything. It’s up to you!
