Bring a Sculpture to Life

When a photographer or painter depicts a still life, the goal is to bring a vibrancy to the otherwise "lifeless" object, and capture the viewer's interest in something that can easily go overlooked. Sculptures of the human form are a bit different because we relate to them even though they aren't moving or breathing

For this Assignment, go to a museum, gallery or shopping center and find a sculpture, mannequin, some 3D depiction of the human form. Use the mood of the scene, the light, shadows, composition, and texture to breath life into the form.

 

Give the form a "personality" based on what you see within it.
