This is a great assignment for students who complete a lesson ahead of schedule, but you're not ready for them to move forward.
The objective of this assignment is to practice your drawing skills by copying a “Master Artist” drawing. Copying master drawings is an excellent way to practice your drawing skills; you will learn a great deal from copying this wonderful artwork. Don’t think of it as copying, rather understanding a particular artists’ style and how they achieve their specific affects. Whenever you copy a drawing, make sure that the proportions of the format are the same. Your drawing format can be a different size, but it must be in the same proportions. If you think it through, you will see why.
