First DRAW Assignment

Tags: funny · school

As some of you know, most of my modules are not exams-based but assignments-based. And yesterday, I had my first DRAW assignment due.

Well, it was more like on-the-spot-do-and-hand-in kind of assignment. And I found out (later) that all the DRAW assignments are to be done and handed in on the day itself.

Here’s the assignment:

Produce a drawing using the concepts of edges and negative spaces.


  1. This is an INDIVIDUAL assignment and to be completed within 2 hours.
  2. Using the methods covered in the tutorials, create a drawing of the subject given to you.
  3. You do not have to set a ground but you must use an A4-sized paper formatted with frame and guidelines according to the picture plane.
  4. Include as much detail as possible.

Submission will be in the form of one drawing of the given subject on an A4-size paper with the basic unit indicated prominently on the drawing.

Submission Date: On the spot at the end of the time allocated.

Marking Criteria:
Basic Unit
Appropriate basic unit selected and indicated. (10%)
Accuracy of the basic unit relative to the subject. (15%)

Detail and accuracy of edges created. (25%)
Detail and accuracy of negative spaces created. (25%)
Completeness of the drawing, in terms of edges and negative spaces on the subject. (15%)
Effective and adequately sized composition. (10%)

The given subject was a lady:

The given subject

It was actually rather easy. But groans from fellow classmates (most of them belonged to the guys) made the given subject look otherwise.

After drawing (and SMSing at the same time) painstakingly for the next couple of hours, I managed to produce this:
My drawing

I must say, I am rather proud of this piece. I was hoping that I could have my drawing back as soon as it’s graded but Mr. Lau had to disappoint me but warning me that I may have to wait for a year before I can get back my assignment.

A whole year! What can they do to my assignment besides letting it rot and collect dust? It’s just like my black-and-white marker piece I did back in secondary school. Till now I bet it’s still stored in a cupboard in Ms. Chia’s room.

Oh, well. To end off, here are some pictures I took during MORG. The lab was freezing, I say.
