Before you begin the Scanner Darkly assignment you need to make sure you have a great picture. For this assignment you will need to choose a photo that has one person in it and has a fairly simple background. You will only need from approximately the shoulders up. If you have more than that we can crop it out later.
Once you've found the picture we are going to quickly convert it to a cartoon just to see what it might look like as a scanner darkly. It will also give you a good example of skin tone combinations etc. The tutorial can be downloaded here.
