Concept & Planning:

Sketchbook Activity #1:

Shading - The Face - Light Source
The shadows on a face are in the areas where the light doesn't hit. These are usually one side of the face, one side of the nose, below the nose, below the lips, and below the eye sockets. The direction of the light source has a profound impact on the placement of the shadows though.

Instructions: In your sketchbook, try doing a few different simple drawings of a face with different light sources.

Sketchbook Activity #2:

Drawing Planes Of The Face
Planes – Planes happen when forms turn. Forms that belong to a single plane share similar values. Keeping values together in a plane is how an artist creates dimension on a flat surface. Planes help create dimension.

Instructions: In your sketchbook, try doing a few different simple drawings of a face with different light sources.

Final Design:

Sea hunt Cereal Box Illustration:

Kellogg's is in the process of branding a new cereal called “Sea Hunt” the idea is that they will have basic sea shapes as the main part and all of the marshmallows will be sharks, treasure chests, boats, gold coins and scuba diver. The character they want focus in on for the box and personality is a great white shark.

What is the objective, the purpose of the illustration?
They want the shark to appear to be of a smug personality... NOT SCARY. Think of Bruce from
“Finding Nemo” His goal is to not let you get to the treasure that he guards.

What do we want to say?
Kellogg's need a character developed that they can us during testing to see if the personality for the shark is
fit for children's cereal.
