Deadpool vs. Caracalla: Portrait Lesson

Deadpool vs. Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus (Emperor Caracalla)
Acrylic on canvasboard
" x "

I use this example to try and engage the students with some history. I have used it with art histroy; ceramics, making a bust, and life drawing, portraits. 

I might say, "Who would win in an all-out street fight? Deadpool or Caracalla?"

The students will say, "Who is Caracalla?"

 

Students will gain knowledge of human anatomy and form through observation, research, and fundamental exercises. These exercises will develop skills in gesture, contour, outline, and tonal modeling. Students will explore and experiment with portrait representation. The artist’s self portrait is a tradition we will also explore within the history of art.

 

If the student is challanged by the materials have them try finger-painting the portrait. Even high school students enjoy finger-painting.

If you would like to see the complete ciricullum for this unit please contact me.

Moche Culture, Pottery, and Ear Lobe Stretching before it was cool

I once had to do a report on Moche pottery which included six colored pencil illustrations, 19" × 24" on Bristol board. I drew an owl vessel, a portrait vessel, a house vessel, a vessel that depicted a sexual act, a squash vessel, and a vessel that was titled, "hallucination vessel," which meant that archeologist don't understand the symbols, but it looks like an exploded monster face. Because of the size I only had two scanned professionally, the rest are buried in a box of old drawings. The Moche inhabited the North Coast of Peru between about 200 and 850 AD. They preceded the Inca and produced many beautiful ceramics.

 

The illustrations have been heavily rotated through various design projects.
