During this unit, we had to create a layered self portrait using spray paint. The first thing to do was to project our picture we made on the computer onto a white piece of paper. We then cut out each color and layed them onto our frame. One by one we spray painted the the stencil a different color as you can see above. Lastly, we had to paint the frame and I decided to put a boarder around the portrait to take up some of the blank space. Overall, I think this was a really fun project because the outcome actually looked like me and I was happy with the results.
This is a self portrait that I had to draw of myself. Mine is not sone yet so I still have to make some alterations. To start with we had to measure out how wide and how long our face was. Then as you can see, I had to measure where all the features of my face would be. For example, the eyes are right in the middle of your face and the end of the nose is half way between the eyes and the end of the chin. The next part was to shade the darker and the lighter parts of the face and show where highlights would be in the hair. If I ever did this project again, I would try to make my portrait look more like me. Personally, I don't think that this looks much like me, but it was my first time drawing a self portrait.
