This assignment will be to make a dinosaur scene using custom brushes that you will make. I would like you to make at least 4 custom brushes and use them throughout your illustration. The size will be
8 x 14 horizontal/landscape at 200 dpi. Attached is a simple reminder of the steps to make brushes.

You can make dinosaur brushes, plant brushes, bug brushes... let your imagination roam.

This week's assignment will be to an actual illustration assignment I had from a while back. I will attach the story. The image size is 14 x 10 landscape format @200 dpi. I would like you to work up the illustration in full black and white to figure out the values, then finish in color by glazing transparent color over the top.  I do this is by using a multiply and overlay layer over the top of your black and white underpainting and adding hue. Once the color is established, flatten down and paint opaquely on top. You will need to research Environments, wigwams, clothing style for the time period and anything else you can think of to make this authentic. Get creative with the Cheeno or he will feel disrespected and we don't want that.
