I was assigned to create a self portrait, not the usual mind you cause this prof likes things that speak differently and I love to accommodate.
I debated on how I would speak my soul into a drawing and many ideas came flooding in but I chose to bare the rawness.
We had to use a mirror and render a drawing from what we saw in under 3 hours.
Actually, I put this off due to my work load and woke about 4:30am the morning before class started to begin my work. Not that I normally choose to procrastinate but I needed to get away to the country for the weekend. Too much technology being fire hosed into my brain is causing an issue with my priorities as of late.
Any way, lol, these where the steps I took to provide my self portrait.
During my sketching faze the clavicle was jacked and I was not pleased with the light that cast too many shadows so I deleted the harsh lines to create a more pleasant drawing. Lighting is a funny beast when drawing the human body let alone myself. I try not to see the whole but break down every facet into different shapes.
I often choose difficult pieces so that I can receive instruction from my prof (I’m paying a handsome amount for this education and I want ever bit of attention I can get).
The response was generously given in praise, and a little shock to tickle my humor.
If I had given this piece more time it would have been quite yummy but I don’t function well on 3 hours sleep at my full capacity, yet I am happy with the result and thought I’d post it for ya!
