Today’s critique was better than last week’s. We had to do a self portrait. You could tell who some people were, but others, not so much. We went over every project, unlike last week. Many people needed to go much darker in their value. Some people left their faces in planar analysis and we were supposed to go the step further. Some also left their shading cross hatch, and we were supposed to do smooth value.
My biggest struggle is people. I have a difficult time getting the proportions exact and correct. I’ve always lacked at this skill. Shading faces is also difficult. My self portrait looks like I am a grandma.. I am really trying my best though. I will continue to practice and give it my all.
