This last two weeks in my art class at school we have been working on self portraits. I think mine looks just like myself except for the eyes. There to fare apart and just a little bit to big. Though it’s hard to make a good self portrait takes alot of time and energy. Plus looking in the mirror for hours and hours until you know every centimeter of your face. Though I always tell myself when I try something new or do something again and I’m not doing it right. “It takes 1000 hours to master something”.
The proscess of this piece is like any normal charcoal drawing I would do. First I would start off by using pencal and creating the proportion, making sher its just right. Then I would take vine charcoal and identifying where the shading it and use my fingers to make the charcoal look nice and soft like the way skin is. And I could keep doing this prosecce with darker and darker charcoals. Creating diffrent kinds of grays in between the black and the white. Then I would use this burnt amber conte crayons highlighting the the light I saw in between the whites and the light grays.
I HOPE YOU LIKE MY DRAWING OF MYSELF EVEN IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT I LOOK LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!
