1. Explain the process you went through to develop your drawing.
The first step of this project was to trace every value onto tracing paper. In order to do tis successfully, you had to put the photo up aganist the window. The next part was to color the back of your tracing paper and then lay it down on a blank piece of paper in your sketchbook. You then tranfer all the values from the tracing paper to the blank sheet by just tracing over the values once more. After that is finished, you just add values you missed and the shade of the value.
2. Explain how you found the different values in the portrait?
Finding the different values in the photo was very hard. You had to look very carefully at the photo so you wouldn't miss anything. The easiest way to find the values was to put the tracing paper and photo up to a window. The light from the sun made a lot easier to tell where all the values where. Soemtimes, it would seem like you had all the values then you would check just to make sure and see a hundred other values. Finding the values was hard, but you eventually get all of them.
3. Did you achieve a full range of the different values within your portrait? How?
I think I did get a full range fo the different values within my portrait. In order to get all nine values you have to look at the value chart. The value chart just makes it easier to remember how dark or how light to shade and that you need all nine values in the portrait.
4. Describe your craftsmanship. Is the artwork executed and crafted neatly?
I think I did pretty good on my portrait, but it could've been neater. I think I could have done better with making it less obvious where each value ends and the next starts. I have some really dark values and then all of a sudden it's really light. I should made the transition between the values more subtle.
5. List any obstacles you had to overcome and how you dealt with them.
Drawing the eyes was very hard to do and kept messing up. The eyes would always turn out really bad and would it would make her look evil. I did the eyes over and over againg until I got right.
