Based on what I saw tonight it seems that there is still A LOT of work to be done. Don't put it off.
I expect to see quality work next week, especially given the time frame of this assignment.
No excuses next week. Find a way.
Elevate your finished piece; make it the finest crafted, refined, resolved drawing you have made to date. Leave nothing to chance. Consider EVERYTHING. No sad fourth grade craft projects, please.
Surprise us with your ability to think about drawing in new and expressive ways. Take risks.
Be inspired by other artists. YOU DO NOT EXIST IN A VACUUM!
HOW you draw something can be as important as WHAT you draw. This is the lesson of the system portrait. Heed this.
