1. Create a Value Scale using white charcoal on black paper.
2. Create the Practice Grid Drawing using a grid.
3. Choose reference to draw from. This can be a photo of yourself or from a mirror. The image must belong to you or you may get written permission from the owner of the image. Choose something with an interesting point-of-view.
4. Create thumbnails to practice composition. Think about using cropping and/or a different point-of-view to gain the viewers interest. Foreshortening is a good way to add interest.
5. Practice using media on black paper.
6. Create pieces on 12" x 18" black paper.
*During your process, remember to back away and turn your paper upside-down from your paper from time-to-time to check for correct proportions and values.
