Assignment: Portraits of Spanish-Language Writers (a)

Assignment language:


Draw portraits of the writers:


Choose between five and seven writers to draw.

After an initial documentation stage, you will decide, together with your school tutor and the Amical tutor, what portraits to draw and how to present them.

If the available documentation allows it, you should depict the writers as they looked at the time they were best known to the public.

No derivative works

When you create a portrait, you may run the risk of your work being considered derivative of a copyrighted photo. It is important to avoid this. The portrait must NOT be based on a single, specific image. You must draw on several different images—preferably audiovisual recordings—in order to truly make the subject's features your own and create something new and different. If you cannot find more than one image of a particular writer, you should make a portrait of a different author instead.

  • Digitized PNG files must not be compressed.

If you create the illustration as a bitmap:

  • Approximate minimum size of the file to be published: 1270 x 1800 pixels (more than 2 Mpx). Approximate recommended size: 1764 x 2500 (more than 4 Mpx). More is better.
  • Maximum file size: 100 MB.

If you create a vector graphic (preferable), use the standard SVG format.

Image viewing guidelines:

  • Approximate image display dimensions on description page: 500 x 718 pixels.
  • Approximate image display dimensions in a Wikipedia article: 348 x 500 pixels.
