Background Design is a basic course at the Academy and newcomer Abraham Martinez did a fine job in his first semester with us in the Adult Program. Here's his latest class assignment which he completed last week.
Abraham used blue pencil to lay out and render his composition of an office. His use of shape with both objects and lighting shows a high degree of sophistication, especially with his avoidance of compositional tangents and in his use of overlaps. By framing different areas of interest and in controlling his tones and line work, he was able to create the illusion of spatial relationships and enhance the perspective and depth of field. This is exceptional work for a beginner in Background Design and we're happy to feature Abraham for the first time on the Academy's blog.
