Description

I made this for my fall semester 2D design class.

Self Portrait
At first, I found my self portrait quite frustrating. I’ve never been able to create a great self portrait, at least not in high school. I think one of my major problems was in high school we were given mirrors to copy out faces onto. I have never really been a fan of mirrors. At first, I did filled in everything but my face, and left my face blank for quite sometime. I even thought about filling it in with black, but decided against it as it would have been the easy way out. Instead, I decided to base my face off a photograph of myself. I chose a photo which I particularly liked, printed it out, and used it for shading and composition, and I think my portrait came out beautifully! It may even be my favorite piece in my book. The background represents the color and chaos I seem to see around me that’s interesting and beautiful and the black and white, dark me is realistic and stands out in such a world.
