The two areas where I have seen the most improvement are my drawing ability and my attitude. The pictures above show 3 comparisons of how my drawing ability has been improved. The improvement between my two separate hands was described previously. You can tell from my second attempt that I actually paid attention to the details and tried to make the hand look like my own. From my first profile drawing to my second profile drawing you can also see improvements. The main improvement for this one is that I was actually able to finish because my model was readily available. You can definitely see improvements on the ear because I actually out some shading in the ear and I was able to add hair to make my model look like herself. The final comparison between my first day portrait and my fragmented portrait shows the most improvement. In the fragmented portrait I actually look like myself and I look human. In my first attempt I look nothing like myself and there is no dimension, where in my fragmented portrait I was able to add dimension to it and make my nose pop out. In addition to my drawing ability improving my attitude had also improved quite a bit. Even though I've always considered myself creative, I had never thought I was good at drawing but now that I have finished a semester in Intro to Art I feel way more confident. I now think that if I try hard enough I can actually draw something and make it look realistic. The one piece that I had more pride in than any other piece was my fragmented portrait. I had a lot of confidence going into it even though I knew it would take a lot of effort and it would not be easy. I just knew if I told myself I could do it I would be able to do it. I actually had faith in my own abilities.
