Animals in the style of Fortunato Depero

With students of Grade 7th we studied the Elements of art like Shape and Forms and, at the same time, we  observed the works of  Fortunato Depero, an important Artist representative of the Italian Futurism (1892-1960). His particular way to stylize and simplify the animals in simple geometrical shapes, inspired us to create these fantastic animals.

First we took a cue from animals templates and sketched our simplified animals with a pencil, we composed the animals using circles, triangles, cones and cylinders, prisms and spheres. In that way we transformed the realistic shape of the animal keeping it still recognizable.

Subsequently the drawings have been colored with colored pencils in fanciful colors. We colored with both techniques, solid colors or shaded colors in value scale. Finally we outlined some shapes with a black marker.
