Recently in Art class, we have been making portraits with either complimentrary colours or realistic colours. I chose Realistic colours because I did not want to look like someone from “Avatar” (the movie by james cameron) or someone with green skin. I also think that with reallistic colours you can express more emotion.
During this unit, I made many improvements with painting. However, I find pencil drawings easier to draw and put expression in. This is evident by the fact that my pencil drawing looks more realistic. To be honest, I found making the skin colour similar very hard. I ended up with a beard. I think i looked silly. to make this less noticeable, I put more skin colour on all of the face.
I believe that I improved at making my face look realistic compared to older paintings, which made me look like a zombie from mars, from my opinion. I think this is an acomplishment because I do not like zombies. Zombies are scary in minecraft. However, I think I could have put more tone into the painting, because at maximum, i have 3 in a part of the body.
I showed my identity by putting in the painting the most feared creature in minecraft, which I like. The creeper. it is displayed prominently at the side of the painting. I also put in a piece of paper and some tape because I Like to make models out of these materials. I also chose realistic colours because I prefer realistic colours, and the orange background was because I felt like putting orange on the background because i thought it would look nice. I put the strange paint on the top because I am a little strange.
Here is a photograph of the portrait.
