Self Portrait Development

• Before i didn’t colour in my face because it felt weird to do that, and i didn’t think about values that much at first. That is why my first portrait has no skin tone. On the other hand my second portrait has values on the face, That is one skill that i developed in this unit. What I changed between the first portrait and the second portrait is that I made my eyes too small and not realistic or close to what my eyes really look like. In my second portrait I made my eyes look more closer to what it looks like. I found how to make my eyes look real, by looking at videos and practicing on my notebook in class.

• the difficulty that I had was to make my nose 3D. I solved this problem by using a blending stump and asking my friends for ideas,gradation and some advice. I chose were to put my eyes, in the right position. Because it is good to be a risk taker,  but if i really don’t know i will ask some one because it is good to make sure as well. I also had trouble making the shape of my face, so i would look at my picture then my portrait and draw the lines while looking back and forth. Then i would fix the parts that are not right (of the shape). still have to do thinking independently
• i think it makes me look depressed and scary. It makes me look like, a type of person that is always sad or angry. It doesn’t express who i really am always, the portriat looks like i am irritated.
• in class i communicate a lot so it distract me from doing my work, i want to improve it by, communicate but ask questions or answer some so i can improve on my work, instead of talking about something that will not help.
