Value Portraits

1. Explain the process you went through to develop your drawing.
First we outlined the shapes of the persons' actual face. Then we traced the picture onto our sketch books. Finally, we shaded and blended the pictures.

2. Explain how you found the different values in the portrait?
I drew a value scale on one of my pages. I then gave them numbers the higher the number, the darker the shade. I determined which of the shadows was which shade

3.  Did you achieve a full range of the different values within your portrait?  How?
Yes I did. To do this I assigned different amounts of shade to different areas. I then blended to make the picture look lifelike.

4. Describe your craftsmanship.  Is the artwork executed and crafted neatly?
Yes, I believe it is. I think I did a good job shading and blending. Overall, I think this picture is pretty lifelike

5. List any obstacles you had to overcome and how you dealt with them.
I originally didnt know how to blend the shades and how to make them look lifelike. So, I used a stump, a blending tool, and got some good shading.

Our First Project-One Humble Artist and His Rise to Fame (Skeleton Drawings)

The original picture from which the drawing below is based off of.

My interpretation of what the Minion's skeleton would hve looked like based on the picture above.

1. I feel like this drawing is a good interpretation on the skeleton of a minion considering that no such creature exists and so the majority of the bones are made up. 
3. I feel like this piece was succsessful for the most part since it seems realistic and maintains the original shape of the print.
4. I liked how the skull turned out, but I dislike how the ribs look.
5.I would add more detail to the ribs and the area around them.
6. Nothing about this piece was too dificult.
7. I learned a lot about bones and their placment.
