This was my before hand drawing. When I drew this I knew little about hands but I knew enough to make a figure that you can recognize.
The second hand drawing I went into detail. Using shading and making the figure look like it's popping out and make it look like you looking at a photo of a real hand. Also learning the values of 1-10 is so important in a drawing like this.
In this drawing I knew how to make a face, just not in detail. I hadn't been in a high school art class before as you can tell by this picture so this was the first self portrait I've done.
My final self portrait went amazing. Through out the year I've learned how to use shading and how to draw something off a picture. We also practiced a lot on facial features which helps. Knowing where to draw the features and in the right space is most affective in my opinion.
