I took this class to improve my ability to draw. I do think it has improved, I just didn't expect do the things we did in class. I never expected the charcoal drawings or crosshatching.
I learned, here, to watch the proportions of what I draw. My hand got messed up because the fingers were not in correct size compared to the palm.
My drawing has improved greatly, I think. All the projects I have done have caused me to learn, to grow from what I was.
The above is all the self portraits. I have improved very much between all three, especially in the shadows and how my features should be. From left to right, the improvement is excellent.
I wish I could have had more time on my fragmented portrait, or perhaps some time on my own. I would have like that very much.
