Self Portrait

1128160959_hdrThis project we were supposed to create a self portrait of our face using value. I’m unfortunately not the best with painting but, I think this came out pretty good with my skill. I showed or created depth on my face especially by using the white where the light was hitting my face and then the gray which showed more of the shadow. I also like how I show the indentation of my face where my eyes were and the space under my nose bridge. I cut all the pieces with a x-acto knife and filled in any blank spaces I had with the scraps. I wish I did my eye better a bit as well as the value gradation but, since I’m not to sure on how much paint to add when I made the gradation a lot of my values are out very similar. This project is then glued on a piece of paper which was then mounted on bristol board.
