Saw To Dust

This is one of my favorite pieces I have done so fare in school. So theses days I’m a junior, that means I have two art classes. One of them is painting and the other one is mixed media. But today I’m going to talk about my mixed media project. Three weeks ago my mixed media teacher gave us an assignment where we had to create a sculpture using one thing and one thing only. Now I thought about this project very carefully because I only had three weeks. It needed to be something easy to get, something no one ells would, and won’t cost me a cent. So then I thought of dust because my house is really dusty and I could probably collect it easily, but I wouldn’t be able to make my project as big as I would want itto be. That’s when I thought of saw dust, I could just get it from the technical theater department at my school. Let me give you guys some advise, collecting saw dust is not as easy as it sounds, it’s basically a lot of back breaking work. But it was all worth it.

Charcoal Self portrait

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!!!!!!!!!!!

Halloween

Happy late Halloween!!!!!!!!!! Sorry that I didn’t post this earlier, its just that I have been sick for that past week and I really didn’t feel like doing anything. The reason I did this drawing was because it was a homework assignment from my art teacher. The assignment was to create a Halloween self portrait. This portrait can be anything, you could have a diffrent kind of lighting, add scary and spooky things, recreate your entire face………. etc. I thought long and hard about what spooks me out. The it hit me the dead I hate the dead. I hate the dead so much I’m terrified  of mummy’s, I wouldn’t even go to the Egyptian section at the Metropolitan Museum.   So I thought why not do a skeleton of myself. When I showed my friends and teacher, they were like “That is so creepy, it looks so much like you”.
