This was one of my art projects at school. We had to use magazines to do our self-portraits and mine was picked as the best art piece for this project.
I expressed myself by using different colors and pictures. The most challenging part was my nose. I couldn't figure out a way to cut up the magazines the right way and to make it look like a nose. I don't know if it does or not but I tried my best.
Choosing the right tone for my face was also difficult. I was very pleased of how my hair and glasses turned out. Next time, I would express my eyes more differently and would choose different tone of textures for my clothing(I'm supposed to be wearing a shirt and a jacket but doesn't really show).
I also drew "Calm Seashore" in watercolor and the "Safety Pin" in pastel, so please leave any comments.
