Main Assignment

Final Design

Adobe Photoshop - Surrealism

Find 8-10 images to use in your dreamscape design. The final piece should show how you used them in different ways.

Final Design

The Visual Communications Program has a heavy focus on the traditional drawing, although drawing techniques are discussed and reviewed in class, the majority of class time needs to be used learning software applications and tools that are not readably available at the student home. In most cases colleges still expect to see a minimum of 8 to 10 traditional drawing pieces. Also a final study completed in traditional drawing could takes as long as 8 to 15 hours if not even longer depending on the subject matter and size.

Think. Plan. Create.
